Lost reviews

I did warn you all that you weren’t going to get answers. Bloody Lost.

“Remember what happened last time round, how empty and cheated you felt at the end? What makes you think it’ll be any different this time? It’s televisual crack, you know it is. ‘I can handle it,’ you’ll keep telling yourself. You can’t though. Just say no.”

Sam Wollaston, The Guardian

“Throughout last night’s two episodes, the programme’s existing mysteries remained as mysterious – and numerous – as ever.”

James Walton, The Daily Telegraph

“Already the dependency is as bad as ever.”

Thomas Sutcliffe, The Independent

“Personally, I couldn’t bear to go on to watch episode two of Lost, which followed on straight afterwards.”

Peter Paterson, Daily Mail

“Lost appears to be scripted by a team of lawyers, who answer every question with a 10-page booklet of further questions.”

Matt Baylis, Daily Express and Daily Star
