What I'm Watching: Lost

Lost: Season 4, Episode 5 “The Constant” (B-)

This is fascinating stuff but little of it makes any sense at all. Desmond really has issues staying grounded in his own time period and always seems to be off frolicking in some future tense. His visions here are cool but they dominate the entire episode, leaving the rest of the cast (Jack and Juliet) only a minute to appear on screen. This whole “constant” thing is vastly intriguing but completely senseless. It is really cool that Penny knows about the island and wants to do something about it and help find Desmond. Sayid’s quick wiring and general ease about everything in the episode feels a bit too hokey for the usually steadfast and determined character. The ending is pretty interesting – Daniel really is one brilliant but mysterious guy. This is where “Lost” becomes even more frustrating than last season since even more questions are raised and fewer are answered. And I am sure that next week will not even feature any of these characters. Ah, well, it is still irresistible.
