Is it crass to think the JetBlue landing-gear fiasco was a Lost promo gone bad? (Especially since there was a JetBlue ad at minute 42 of the premiere, and there was a media reporter on board - Hi, boo!)

Walt's kidnapping was one of the most genuinely terrifying moments I've ever seen on TV, right up there with the flickering scenes of Bob on Twin Peaks. By comparison, the season premiere was all chess, save for the guns-upon-guns-upon-guns at the end. Makes you appreciate just how genuinely strange the first season was.

And dense, too. If we're setting Jack up for a spiritual awakening, fine, but there was hardly a hint of Arzt-monologuing self-awareness about the prioritizing of a few characters over the bulk of the others. (Although maybe with Desmond collecting them like Matchbox cars, some new heroes will step up). No sign of the raft massive ('cept for the backwards-talking Walt) or Ana Lucia and the Back End Boys.

C'mon JJ - If Nip/Tuck can get a 90-minute premiere, certainly someone could've sprung for a few more establishing scenes up in this bitch.

Matthew Fox looks silly with hip hair.

Sure, we want to know what's in the hatch, but not to the exclusion of the rest of the plotlines. I can wait a few more episodes before finding out who killed Laura Palmer.

I honestly didn't believe the plane thing was actually happening. It seemed to ridiculous and coincidental. And yeah, I was laughing when the JetBlue commercial came on too...

re: the lack of a 90 minute premier... I bet they wrote a 2-hour premier (letting us know what's up with the raft, etc.) but the network made them do that hoaky recap thing so new viewers wouldn't be los... err confused.
