Theres a steady pattern forming to seasons of Lost
, where the narrative by turns manages to enthral and frustrate with equal measure. And the shows makers are clearly wise to this, as while elements of the third season revert to type, theres a clear and genuine effort to energise a programme that continues to stretch its simple premise as far as it can.
So while Lost still compromises of a group of plane crash survivors marooned on a mysterious island, theres plenty else being thrown into the pot. Season three finds new characters, greater exposition of the mysterious others, the obligatory background character work, and a pronounced fracturing of relations between many of the survivors.
It too also manages to hint at some answers to the many conundrums that it continues to pose, not least a concluding episode that itself should keep fan debates fuelled until well into the next series. And, chief among its accomplishments, Lost still manages to keep us interested, and leaves plenty in the tank for the future as well.
In short, theres little danger youll be short-changed by Lost season three thanks to its ideas, its nerve, and the continued clues it teasingly leaves along the way. As fascinating as it always was. --Jon Foster
