So the press has watched the first 2 episodes of Season five of LOST: Because You Left and The Lie. I am extremely jealous. While they had to sign confidentiality agreements, some of the review could still be considered spoilery. In my infinite obsessive craziness, I tried not to read them but caved in (of course). Here are the lesser spoiler-y tidbits, but don’t read on if you don’t want to spoiled at all!!!
–Someone calls Sawyer ‘inbred’ and it doesn’t turn out so well for the name-caller.
–Someone gets a nosebleed
–Kate regrets a past decision
— Hurley wears a funny t-shirt
–Sawyer is shirtless for the entire first epi.
Directly from Doc Jensen at EW:
They [the first two epsiodes] demand active engagement, and I found it to be a lot of fun.”
Directly from TVGuide:
The first seasons’ flashbacks now seem utterly quaint. And the more recent flash-forwards? Relatively simple. As promised, previewed and teased by the producers of Lost ever since Season 4 came to a close, the next cycle of episodes introduce a new storytelling “device” of sorts that might make you want to keep a notepad and pen next to your TV remote.”
Oh, joyous rapture.
