boring and slow. Not many questions answered that were worth much. Cindy is okay and has no cares in the world (island) even though some 60+ days ago she was working at 33,000 feet and now is on a strange island "watching"

Did you miss the Others' facility (in both senses of the word) for brainwashing?  Also, Cindy was crossing the Island from a crappy cave to an unknown camp.  The Others took her, reuniting her with the children and giving her a real (and comfortable) society.  It's not hard to believe she might be swayed.

I was extremely bored, confused, and mostly distracted by this episode.  Yuck!  Am I missing something but what didn't we know already from the Lost Moments from this episode............

Dry I don't even know how to vote for such a tremendous piece of crap

Yawn.  The "answers" we got didn't seem relevant to the overall plot and only created more questions, in the case of Cindy and the kids.

A six!  Probably higher than most will give it.  I liked the character development and all the Jack/Juliet.  I liked everything between the lines. 

Bai Ling gets a -1 for acting, but a +2 for being foxy as hell.  Unfortunately, the flashbacks sucked in general, so that's a few more points off.

I liked it, it felt like it was setting a foundation for other stuff to happen later on... I really liked seeing another side of Sawyer, he was really take charge, caring and compassionate... I liked seeing Jack play the others, I think he is trying to make Juliet an ally and if not, he's playing her to his own gain anyway... go Jack!  I didn't see where the flashback added much except the parallel it makes between Juliet and Jack both being marked by something that defines them and will have consequences for years to come... I like Alex, she seems like the typical teenager suffering the usual teenage angst... I love my dad, I hate my dad, I'll use my dad to get what I want... Isabel was great, her calm demeanor was menacing and powerful... noticed her anger with Ben's decision... so this isn't quite a Utopian Society, Ben's rather autocratic in his leadership, dictator I should say... he really is HIM... and he must have something over the others that he can maintain his control even when down and out... you can feel some tension with the others but no coup seems to be forming... I could go on, but you all saw it too...

The episode felt a little like taking care of the loose threads that are often left dangling... I feel like I have a better sense of where everyone is and what their plight is about... either that or watching a zillion episodes of other crap on tv has set me up to love anything that is even remotely lost...
