To be fair, I've never seen Lost.
Anyone else notice that just about each episode of the new season doesn't really go anywhere? I mean, it does progress forward, but not enough seems to be revealed to feel like the show is getting closer to "the big picture" or "final battle". That big climax. They just keep moving at a real slow pace repeating their lines from the previous episode with hardly any action (they have super powers, lets see some more blood) and just when you think something is about to be revealed, to be continued.....
I'm all for shows that continue one after another and follow a theme rather than random circumstances every episode, but come on now. Give us, the viewers, some kind of satisfaction each Monday night instead of jerking us off for an hour and then letting go just when things are getting good. Give us something to be an awe of, but just when things seem to be good, a new piece of the puzzle is revealed. It's kind of what you are doing now, but up the ante. Show us that the stakes are high.
Now if only I can find a place to post that ABC will actually read this....but anyone else noticing this?
