Monster of the week right now doesn't mean it will be a monster of the week show forever. Watch season 1 of Lost where a huge problem for the survivors consisted of things like someone stealing Shannon's inhaler. I liked the premiere. Not as great as Lost's first two hours, but that's an unfair standard to hold any show to. I liked the 2nd hour better as well. Emerson Hauser is kind of a dick. Hopefully we learn more about Madsen's character that will make her more interesting. And of course Jorge is Jorge, how can you not love him? I'm glad his character isn't just a clone of Hurley. He's goofy just like Hurley, yes, but Hurley was always kinda dimwitted and Soto is kind of a genius.
