LOST season 4 continues to bring the show back on course. The flash forwards create a new sense of mystrey. Still the flashbacks
aren't finished as they figure into three episodes (including THE OTHER WOMAN) and another episode has one character going
back and forth between two time periods in his life (THE CONSTANT). Now the end has set everything up for season 5 when the
Oceanic Six (the ones who got off the island they crashed on) must find a way back to the isaland they left (and what went
wrong on the island after they left). This season is the strongest since the first one. LOST provides more questions as
they answer others. You find out who got off the island while providing what happened to them since (and one episode tricking
you to the very end). Locke tells Jack that he will have to lie when he gets off the island and those lies will eat him up
until he comes back (Locke's right). Hats off to the actors who play Locke (Terry O'Quinn), Desmond (his wanting to get back
with Penny is one of the most interesting story arcs), and Sayid. Those three characters and even Ben (the leader of the
Others who wants to keep the island safe) outshine the central love triangle of Jack, Kate, and Sawyer.
Audio commentaries were recorded for THE BEGINNING OF THE END, THE CONSTANT, JI YEON (featuring Daniel Dae Kim and Yunjin
Kim), and THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME Part 2 (where the producers make a few jokes while talking about the season finale).
