That was THE. WORST. EPISODE.EVER!!!!
I am so disappointed. This whole season has been disappointing, but last night took the cake. Besides having to put up with bad acting, it was just a stupid story line and one that is not consistant with the rest of the show. They could have answered who Jacob/Bob/Smoky was in about 10 min. but we had to go through an entire episode that was painful to watch.
I agree, Lost has lost it.
It's like they are desperately trying to tie up the loose ends and are just throwing crap out there. I expected so much better from this show, the producers and writers.
I'm really going to be unhappy if the final two shows are like this.
I've been saying that the alternate universe has been shaping up to be the Bobby Ewing in the shower of this season and it's looking more and more like it will be.
They took a great show, with a great premise and good writing (great writing that made us suspend belief and believe that there were extraordinary things and powers on the island) and then tried to answer it in the last season with CRAP. And last night was the crappiest episode EVER.
