Good enough to not have egg on its face
1 June 2018 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

When 'Lost' was in its prime, it was must-watch television. Remember first watching it, found it remarkably easy to get into, was hooked from the start and was on Season 3 by the end of one week. The general consensus is that the final season is a disappointment and cannot disagree.

Season 3 was for me a solid if uneven season, with many brilliant episodes but a few slightly underwhelming ones, an inconsistent first part of the season and containing one of 'Lost's' low points "Stranger in a Strange Land". Season 4 had a good amount to live up, and its first episode "The Beginning of the End", was a brilliant start. The following episode "Confirmed Dead" is very nearly as great and already there are signs of a season that settled much quicker than the previous one. That continued once again with "The Economist".

"Eggtown" is a solid enough episode, but is somewhat of a disappointment compared to the previous three episodes and after the latter half of Season 3 was so good. Didn't know what to make of the courtroom flash-forward, it does intrigue and Jack's characterisation likewise but some of the dialogue is too forced to the point of silliness, the outcome was unsatisfying and it felt somewhat soap-operatic.

Sawyer's writing really isn't some of his best, the character deserved better than the inane dialogue he was given. As one can guess, the writing is very flawed here, not being natural and lacking substance. Enough of it holds interest, is thought-provoking and taut, but it is not consistent and when 'Lost' is at its best all those qualities came consistently.

There is enough tension here however, same with the entertainment and emotion. Faring best are the stories of Locke and with Ben and the shocking final twist in an episode where there are otherwise no real major or jaw-dropping twists.

It does do a very good job advancing existing stories and moving things forward, answering existing questions and introducing others to provoke thought.

Can't fault the performances. Evangeline Lilly is good here, though Kate has never been one of 'Lost's' most compelling characters. Locke and Ben have always been far meatier characters, have far better material here with their subplots being the episode at its most intriguing and Terry O'Quinn and Michael Emerson don't disappoint.

Nor the stylishness and atmosphere of the visuals, nor the effectively understated and chilling use of music, enough moments of taut writing and the above competent direction.

Overall, more than decent but disappoints. 7/10 Bethany Cox
