Not again, Lost ...

Trying to catch up on Season 5 of Lost before the final season begins next week.

Look, I've devoted a lot of time and energy to watching Lost, but I am well aware of its foibles.  For every Wow, that was awesome! moment, there has been a forehead slapping Oh jeez moment.

I'm willing to suspend my disbelief about a lot of things (A LOT of things), but if we could please have a moratorium on characters asking, "Uh, what?" or "Are you kidding me?" or exclaiming, "This is ridiculous!" or "This doesn't make any sense!"  (Hurley and Jack, I'm looking at you two.)

Look, kids.  There are ghosts and polar bears and smoke monsters on your island, which incidentally causes pregnancy death and cures cancer.  You encountered a rare culture of people known as "Others" who speak only in rhetorical questions.  You are all connected by a series of numbers that have been dropped from current plot lines like an unemployed ex-boyfriend.  There was a magical hatch that appears to have black hole-like properties.  Big flashes of light signal you traveling through time.  And, on yeah, there's random Egyptian shit everywhere.  

Stop being so shocked when something weird happens.
