“Lost” new season

Last night was really strange, because I just finished watching “America’s Next Top Model” and switched over to “Lost.”

Except I didn’t think it was “Lost.”

It looked more like “Desperate Housewives.” I actually thought I was watching the wrong channel for a few moments, so I was kind of out of it at the beginning.

But it seemed to confirm that there was some sort of atmospheric disruption just before the plane crashed down.

I think the plane did breech some sort of electro-magnetic field. Remember the field went down when Desmond didn’t punch in the numbers?
What happens now with no one punching in numbers?

I have to say it feels a little odd being with The Others. It was creepy to watch Kate have to shower and slip into a sun dress before meeting with Henry Gale/Ben on the beach.

But did you notice the glass dome the camera lingered on? It covered Kate’s breakfast. Come on, how many meals come in a glass cover???

Ok, maybe that’s a reach.

And what’s up with the zoo? And the kid in the zoo? And Sawyer (and now Kate) in the zoo?

Anyway, I’m not sure I want to be away from the core Lost group for as long. I’m only mildly interested in the Others. Some people think that The Others are the children of the original Dharma people, because those people would be much older than the people we are seeing on the island.

Then we have Jack obsessing on his former wife’s boyfriend. The producers have mentioned several times that his identity might be an important story point. But is it?

Jack sure seems to think so. But I got SICK of hearing Jack go on and on about it last night.

And there were too many darn commercials!

Any thoughts?

    Again I had to hit the Lost forums today to gain a little more understanding of what passed before my eyes last night. I felt even more confused than ever, and even had to remind myself for a minute what happened in the last episode of Season 2. But, this is what I think:

    -The zoo is where the polar bears were kept. The kid in the other cage is probably an Other, and was used to try and find out where the Losties are (he asks Sawyer where his camp is, how many days’ walk it is, what direction, then tells him what direction to run, etc.). He’ll probably come back as some sort of mole (the spy kind, not the animal kind).
    -What happened at the breakfast that chafed up Kate’s wrists, and if she had all that food in front of her, why did she attack Sawyer’s fish biscuit when she got back?
    -Juliet seems “nice,” but there’s also something mysteriously sinister about her. Just slightly.
    -What was the Stephen King book Juliet was holding?

    As for the glass dome…well, the Lost guys have always said there are very few things on the show that don’t have meaning. 😉

    Yes, when Sawyer was locked into the cage and the Other says the bears figured out the treat treat/punishment machine in two hours I thought about the polar bears. Also, the kid could be used by The Others to get information, or maybe he’s being tested too for some reason.
    And I think we’re all wondering what happened at that breakfast. Nothing good for Kate, that’s for sure.

    I am still awaiting my copy of The Watchmen from Amazon to enlighten me…

    Hmm, and it now appears I have to check out Battlestar Gallactica.

    I think you’ve cracked the code with the whole “Lost” thing. I wasn’t really a fan before, but now I feel like I can dive in and start to understand the whole mess.
