    Yeah i get what you mean. I'm just sure i'd heard it was sort of a one off, similar to 24 (before they added extra seasons of course) where the story ended after the 25th episode....

    I hope i'm wrong though

    yeah you see what happened to 24! ;)
    I really want LOST to continue but only if they can keep up the quality...otherwise its probably best to end it as they presumably planned...

    na, that's ****. no matter how awesome a movie or show is. there has to be a limit.

    this would be far better and more realistic if only one season. ANY more than one - let alone 9 is bollocks. sure it's good, but there's only so much you can do on a figgin island with 40 odd people.

    crash - freeky stuff - some death - remainder survive - end

    that's how it should be, all over in a mini-series way. i dont care if ratings in the states say its the best thing since a man was on the moon. i'm sure it will die faster than StarGate SG1, which i loved for several seasons. but this isn't like that with many many possibile planets to visit.

    very 'meh'

    Ok, so i was out last Wednesday night (my birthday) so i didn't watch LOST.

    Anyhoo i left my flatmates to tape it for me and they said they did. Went to watch it yesterday but of course the 'video player' must have stuffed up - 3 engineers and they don't know how to use a vcr.

    Anyway can someone please post what happened last week so i can watch it tonight and not be confused, chur.

    "House of the Rising Sun"
    Air Date: 10/27/2004

    We open on the eye of Sun ? who looks out at her husband Jin as he catches and kills fish with his bare hands ? when we launch into?a FLASHBACK ? where Jin is a waiter at a lavish party for Korean high society; and Sun is a cocktail-clad part of that society. Both are in positions that highly contrast the characters we know on the island. Jin approaches Sun and offers her a glass of champagne, but there is another exchange going on between them ? in their eyes ? and when they meet later, we learn that they are lovers, as they steal a kiss in private. Sun wants to run away to America while Jin is worried about her father's approval. Jin presents her with a white orchid ? all he can afford for now.

    Back on the island, Jin is distracted by the sight of Michael and Walt walking down the beach, when suddenly, for no apparent reason, he charges Michael and proceeds to beat the crap out of him near the shoreline. Jin nearly drowns Michael as Walt and Sun look on helplessly, until Sawyer and Sayid step in to break it up. Sawyer uses the Marshal's handcuffs to chain Jin to a piece of the fuselage.

    Meanwhile, Jack, Kate, Charlie and Locke trek towards the fresh water source. When Charlie separates from the group for a fix, he inadvertently steps on a bee hive. Locke, who seems to have followed him, instructs Charlie not to move, but Charlie has an irrational fear of bees. As he balances precariously on top of the hive ? bees buzzing all around his head, we cut back to ?

    ? the Beach, where Michael is explaining what happened. Defending himself, his frustration grows as the language barrier and race card come into play. Sayid insists that Jin remain handcuffed until they can sort things out. Sun looks on as we go into ? another FLASHBACK, by an idyllic lake, where Jin announces his intentions of marrying Sun, with her father's blessings and gives her an engagement ring. Sun is overjoyed until she learns that, in return, Jin has agreed to work for her father's business. And off her look of concern, we cut back to ?

    ? the island, where Charlie struggles to remain still as more bees buzz around him. Jack has a plan ? he'll cover the hive, but before he's able to put his plan in action, Charlie is stung and stomps on the hive in reaction. The angry swarm is instantly on them and they all run off in separate directions, swatting bees and shedding clothes. Kate runs into a cave, where she stumbles into the skeletal remains of two bodies, one male, the other female, giving evidence to the fact that there were people on this island before them. When Jack examines "Adam & Eve", we learn that they've been dead for approximately 40 years and were laid to rest without any evidence of trauma. Among their few possessions, Jack finds a pouch containing two stones ? one black, one white.

    At the beach, Sun applies aloe to Jin's handcuffed wrist, which is chaffed and cut from the cuff. In FLASHBACK, we watch Sun enter a well appointed home to find a gift wrapped box waiting for her, with an adorable Sharpei puppy inside. But instead of looking pleased, Sun looks depressed. Jin is also distant and instead of sharing this moment with his wife, he retreats into the bedroom to take a business call.

    Back in real time, Jack is encouraged by the discovery of the bodies at the caves. He suggests that, instead of bringing the water to the people, they bring the people to the water. While Charlie and Locke agree and stay behind to begin to prepare things for the others, Kate isn't quite convinced and remains unwilling to settle in.

    Meanwhile, back on the beach, Walt is upset and confused over the attack and questions his father's part in it. Michael immediately assumes that Walt's mother said bad things about him, but the truth is even harder for him to take. His mother never spoke of him at all. And off these relative strangers we find ?

    ? strangers of a different sort. As Sun tends to Jin, we FLASHBACK once more to their home, which has become even more ornate, a

    Aren't you from Hamilton, Metropolitan central eh? You *must* be kidding...

    Went to the Smallbore rifle range and had a go there too tonight. Might make that a regular thing on Wed nights. I scored 86 out of a possible 100.10 with a strange (club) rifle and never having done the sport before. The old fella's there thought I wasn't too shab. :D

    It's starting to get a bit formulaic. One backstory per show. All the good guys are actually a bit bad. All the bad guys are actually a bit good.

    More and more people are picking up on the purgatory concept in the media. But that fails to take into account the co-pilot who was alive and killed without any sot of redemption (amongst other things, such as the extra who drownsd in the Jack-flashback episode or the guy sucked into the jet-prop in the first episode).

    I guess my big fear is that the whole story will just end up a shambles & peter out (a la Twin Peaks) or have some cobbled together ending which leaves half the loose ends untied (x-files, 24).

    Last week when Hobbit-boy threw his heroin in the fire and saw a moth fly off... everyone knows any real moth would've kamakazied into the fire too... ;)

    But I'll keep watching in the hope it doesn't end up disappointing...
