LOST. Sara called what would happen in this episode just as soon as we read the little TV info box: the castaways do not accept Julie (one of the Others); Clair gets a mysterious illness. I wonder how those two plots will come together? Everything you expect to happen, happens, but -- as LOST always does -- there are so many little twists, turns, variations, revelations (the one at the end was GREAT) and tidbits of information the whole thing is just fascinating. I do not think I have ever enjoyed following a show more -- including West Wing and Buffy.
Oh, and another pointless philosophy allusion: Juliette's last name is Burke, giving us Burke, Hume, Locke, Carlyle, Rousseau, and Bakunin. Yeah, that's really silly, but I do not care because I LOVE LOST. And now only five episodes until the season finale on May 23rd.
But why the hell are they not going to live in the air-conditioned village with a fence that will protect everyone from the monster they have feared since the pilot? If there is a reason, someone on the show needs to say it OUT LOUD. I said I enjoyed following this show more than any other, but that does not mean it is better written than any other. This is just a mistake.
