All right, I figure there are more than a few of you who want to talk about “Lost.” I’m setting this post to go live at 2 a.m. Eastern, so people on the West Coast have the same opportunity to discuss the two-hour premiere. For all those entering the comments section, please speak of spoilers freely. Johnny-come-lately spoilerphobes: stay out of the comments. (For those who didn’t watch and don’t care about spoilers, catch up with Inside TV’s recap. For those who did watch and want some discussion of Leibniz with their explanatory Cuse/Lindelof interview, check out PopWatch.)
My take? I continue to be amazed that people are awed by this show. I mean, it’s good television, but I’m astounded that more people don’t recognize the lazy writing devices (the Juliet-Sawyer conversation sticks out) and plot points that are ridiculously campy (I laughed through most of the temple scenes). I can’t help but feel that ten years from now, pop culture won’t look back so fondly on “Lost.” When VH1 inevitably makes “I Love the ’00s,” it’s totally going to make fun of the fans who reveled in the show’s mystique — and then you people will finally feel the sting of Godfrey’s sarcastic barbs.
