i was pretty blown away by this one, my only complaint is that in several places they asked questions way more straight up than they usually do. seemed a little out of place.

Pretty awesome... only complaint is that Miles really really contrasted with Daniel... just a tad too much. Dan is a wimp.

I really liked this epi.  Dan must have some kind of really interesting talent to bring to the team. It doesn't, however, appear to be the ability to lie.

Now that's what I'm talk'n about! This week its a 9. Better than 4x01.  New mysteries to peak our interest --just like what I expect in a good Lost episode.

Post by: Sweet Old Lady on February 08, 2008, 03:18:06 AM
I gave it a 10.  I'll watch it a couple more times.  I love the new characters!  I wonder if the ghost-buster can talk to the island.  He talked to Naomi, sort of.

i gave it an 8.  awesome episode, but i wish i could have seen more of our losties/others/islanders.  almost like this episode was just full of information, with little story.  i LOVED the fact that i had no idea that the new people would be there as scientists, etc.  i really thougth they would just show up and start being mean to everyone and try and take over, but that wasnt' their mission.

Great episode.  I goive it an 8.  I'm saving my 10 for when they go back to the island in Season 6.

Didn't like it much - ok, so we got introduced to some weird new people, but the people we've loved all along didn't get much of the spotlight. it felt weird.

I gave it a 9. I think this was one of the best episodes so far, and certainly the best in a long time. I was sooo gorgeously confused by it :D
Title: Re: Episode 4x02 Rating

For being better than "the beginning of the end" I give this an 8 instead of a 7.

Post by: PrincessLeia on February 08, 2008, 05:10:09 PM
9.  It was packed with action & information.  I don't know why everyone's so confused!  Things are becoming so clear now! lol

It was odd, however that they introduced these new characters & didn't string us along with millions of questions about them.  I agree with surfmadpig that it felt different.  Why couldn't they have done that with Danielle?  The 1st episode we meet her, go ahead & give us the flashback?!?!?! ::)
Title: Re: Episode 4x02 Rating
Post by: Point Place WI on February 08, 2008, 11:54:07 PM
I gave it a "2"

It was so choppy....so misguided.  I want Sayid to torture Miles.  That's what I call whining people.  Our friend Locke leading his group based and cough cough "Tall Ghost Walt" come on.  (Like Amp'd Energy Drinks moto: "Wake up people!" 

I guess Tall Ghost Walt also had some silly pudy to stop those bullet holes from external bleeding.  Put your shirt back on Locke your still a farmer in my book. 

Ok, So why send a Ghostbuster, Anthropologist, Pilot, and whatever else to get some leader of the natives named Ben Linus.  Whomever is backing the freighter should have Sent a team trained for kidnapping.  It's not like they were lacking funds with expensive satellite phones.   Addann or whatever your name is.  Naomi was the weakest link goodbye. 

Corny line "What's the monster?" by John.  Ben doesn't even know or reply lame.
What was the point of that line?

Contradictions....Sawyer wants to kill Ben...Locke says: No not in front of his daughter.  (Sawyer thinks oh I saw my parents get killed ok I won't shoot him)

Ben shoots Drop-ie chick.  Locke is like ok it's on we are killing Ben. But manipulator is safe for now.   

Show some balls the fricken Cow did!!!!

Wish I would have picked one instead. 

Use the Damn satellite phone and get on with this milked out story of rescue.

This episode was crazy good!  My head hurts! By the time I will be able to speculate on Monday there will be so many threads to read lol.  Yes, it was different, but a shift was needed to get us to the end of the story.

Post by: Cardacct on February 10, 2008, 12:25:00 AM
I gave it an 8.  I really like that they are going somewhere with the episodes.  At least it seems like there is plenty going on.  I like that they unearthed the polar bear.  I like that the pilot noticed the lack of wedding ring.  I am pleased so far with Season 4.  It is so much better than the start of Season 3.
Title: Re: Episode 4x02 Rating
Post by: lostonlocke on February 10, 2008, 03:54:01 PM
9. I thought it was very good. I got so engrossed in it, I couldn't believe it was over. It didn't feel like an hour. I can gage an episode by the number of instant messages I get the next day at work.  If it starts lighting up as soon as I sign on it was a good one; and this one was a good one.   The new characters are very interesting.  I agree it might have been nice to have had a flashback for Danielle.  I believe that the flashbacks are only scratching the surface on these characters.  Now that the strike is over I hope they will be able to gives at least 6 more episodes and maybe expand the next season to incorporate the ones missing from this season

i gave 8, loved it - left me hungry for more... and I heartily recommend going spoiler free - it made this episode so much better - I got the WOW factor back - you know what... I didn't even read the episode synopsis(?) where it loosley described what's coming next week....

try it - it's worth it!
Title: Re: Episode 4x02 Rating
Post by: laklost on February 11, 2008, 06:04:27 PM
I gave 4x02 a 9.  I absolutely loved it.  When we started watching it, my husband wanted to pause it and question minutiae - and I said, let's just watch it for pure entertainment - it's got to pass that test first.  I could not believe how much I laughed at it!  It was genuinely funny!  That's not to blow away all the fabulous speculating about it - but it had such a rich sense of humor about it.  Which new character was better - the egghead physicist in A SHIRT AND TIE? (When's cocktail hour on the island, anyway?), the giddy archaeologist (How happy could she be not just to be alive - but to be there, on the island?), the ornery ghostbuster with a big mouth, or the drunk pilot blessed with a vision of the Flame bull? 

If our people are going to get off the island the way they got on it, they deserve this ragtag bunch.  It felt like such a nod to Leia's rescue in Star Wars - they even gave Farraday Luke's line.  The thing I like about how fresh these characters seem is that they just might have the stuff to get rid of Ben AND do something to benefit, not exploit the island.

Goood stuff.

not all bulls have horns.


sidenote:  even my husband liked the show!  it is becoming a show that HE watches, not just one he watches with me.  he wasn't home on thursday, so i watched it alone.  well, he actually watched it later that night after he got home.  lol.  he's coming to the dark side!

I gave it a 9.  it was a bit choppy, but they had to squeeze in 4 quick flashbacks of very different characters and i think they did an amazing job of that.  many good questions from this episode, you can really feel the awesomeness building up!  i think some of the new characters fit into too much of a 'form'...but lets see that expand in these coming episodes.  anyhow.  i liked it way better than the last one.

Post by: jugdish on February 12, 2008, 04:54:53 PM
There were a lot of new questions from this ep. I think that is what bugged me. After the show I felt farther from the answers instead of closer!! I found that frustrating. They said the first 8 are filled with questions and the next 8 solve them(some of them) I guess there will be more questions coming.

I thought the question of who is coming to rescue them was at least adequately addressed in showing the 4 and Naomi's motivation and connection to Abbadon.  It would be ridiculous if they kept stringing along who is on the boat.  Granted, there's more to tell, but they fit as much storytelling into that episode as one 42 minute segment could hold!

Some farmers have the horns removed so the bull will be safer to be around.  In the long shot of the Flame station you see a cow with horns.

Isn't the whole red bull thing a nod to a Jewish symbol for redemption?

LOT of new characters, easter eggs and questions revealed in this ep.  Loved the addition of a new faction to the island.  That'll keep it fresh!  If the ep was choppy, probably due to the fact that we had four individuals' flashbacks in the same ep.  Has there ever been more than one individual's flashback before?

Gave it a 9. Higher than last week's.

In my former life I was an Agricultural Sciences Teacher.  There are many breed of cattle that are polled (without horns).  Some of the most common are Angus, Limousin,Simmentals,Swedish Red Polled, etc.  So it is not unusual to see a polled bovine.  As a matter of fact many breeds have been crossbred for this particular genetic characteristis for ease of handling by ranchers or dairy men.   In additiona as SOL points out cattle can still be mechanically polled, however because of breeding polled cattle this is not as widely practices as it used to be.

Like it says, they depend more on the long hair for warmth, and less on subcantaneous fat, so they are leaner.  A noble creature! Obviously the higher order of cattle that this poor polled fella on the island is aspiring to become.
