Finding Its Direction

Lost returned tonight. And from the first episode, it appears that the show's writers are back on the path that they strayed from midway through season two.

There were several strong twists in this episode, and the focus returned to the core characters rather than the second-stringers. Some questions were answered, many more were introduced, and the series actually seemed to have the energy and momentum that made it a favorite in its first season.

It's too early to say if it's going to maintain this energy for the remaining seven episodes, but I certainly hope so; it would be nice to be able to look forward to each episode again, rather than lamenting the show's stumbles...
