Lost: Season 3 Review

Posted by tvondvdcritic on December 20, 2007


Ok, forget the entire season of Lost and let’s talk about that horrible finale. I know tons of people loved it, I hated it! How stupid do they think we are? From the moment the last episode started, I knew this was not a ‘flashback’ but instead a flash forward.  And that is their shocking surprise? Who in the world doesn’t think they are gonna be rescued?

So now, are we gonna have to see flash forwards the rest of the series’ limited 3 year run? Not exciting. I don’t care that Jack wants to get back to the island. He’s an idiot. What are the odds he ever will anyway, he doesn’t even know where it is.

Instead of wrapping up all the open storylines/mysteries, they created more, and even stupider ones. I wanna know why:

-Walt magically appeared

– Who the hell Jacob is

– What happens to Ben

– Where is Penelope

But instead, we see Jack with a beard that would make an indie kid jealous, and see him popping pills the whole episode. What confuses me even more is why fans ate this shit up?

So I lied. I will talk about the rest of the season. It wouldn’t be much of a review if I didn’t. I love shows with ensembles. This ranks right up there. Despite a bad ending, it had enough mystery and suspense that kept me hoping it would resolve itself. Even though it did not, I have to give it credit for at least keeping me glued to my seat til the last minute.

The season starts out with Jack, Kate and Sawyer captured by the others. They spend the whole first half of the season captured, and even now at the end of the season, we still have no good reason why the others do what they do. The whole year focuses on the others and a big reason I was so disappointed with the ending is, if your gonna focus on one storyline all year, at least explain it better, but they didn’t. We go into season 4 still as confused as ever.

Toward the end of the season, we have a mysterious woman parachute onto the island, claiming she is with a search team, who claims the entire plane was found with all the survivors, and they are all dead. So who are these people then? This woman has a radio signal, but before they can call for help, Locke, who I hate more than anyone, trys to warn Jack not to use it. Jack does anyway, and the rescue boat is soon nearby. Then we get the ‘flashforward’ to hobo-esque Jack, beard in full effect, and we soon (or in my case I knew since the first 5 minutes of the finale) find out it’s Jack off the island. Season over.

Bad ending, enough plot twists, and exciting moments for me to still say I loved the season, If I can hate it so bad but still love it, then it’s doing a lot right.

Score: 9/10
