Ranking Season Four

How's everyone holding up? I've been busy and distracted this past week - Busy with some papers and an upcoming job talk I'm preparing for, distracted with baseball and Super Smash Bros. Brawl which is just... so... awesome! If anyone wants to play online (especially if you're on the East Coast), my FC is 3179-5886-7788. Let me know in the comments if you're interested. :)

Not much of anything on Lost out there, but Doc Jensen has a new article up on EW where he grades the first eight episodes of Season Four. I thought it would be interesting to see how his grades jived with my own and the results of my episode polls. They are (Jensen's grade, my grade, my poll average)

Now this isn't perfect since 1) My poll scale really doesn't conform to my rating scale, something I should really correct, but we can see a few things here. He's down on "The Other Woman" a bit more than we were, but everyone here tended to think "Eggtown" was the worst episode this season. And, of course, there's a general consensus that "The Constant" was the highlight of the season, if not the series, so far.

It'll be interesting to see how the rest of the season rates in comparison considering their rushed production schedule and the fact they're condensing eight episodes down to five. I also wonder what's going to happen to the Season Four DVD set? Will it be a reduced price because there are only 13 episodes? The shorter season probably means fewer extras as well. *sigh*

Anyhoo, my posting will be sporadic over the next week or two. There more weeks!
