4.0 out of 5 stars
Solid continuation from season 1, without pulling out many stops, 23 Jun 2006
The second season of the show, continues the castaways fight against the others. Clever episodes linking the castaways lives furthur enhances interest as the show progresses. Part 1 of the show is however slow and does not progress the story fast enough is my opinion. Part 2 does not have this problem and, like the previous season speeds towards the ending.
There are two minor downfalls in the season. The ending doesnt have the excitement and shock that the first season had. It made me think 'oh,ok' and that was it.
It also appears that JJ doesnt know what to do with his all star cast. Jack, Sawyer, Kate, Lock and Anna Lucia now appear to be the major 5. Charlie, Sayid and Hurley are downgraded and shown less attention. If the story line seems to be slowing or losing excitement he decides to kill someone off, and introduce someone else.
The major highlight, like the first season, are the episodes that explore Hurley's past.
In conclusion, as good as the ground-breaking first season, without the ending.
