Like Loren, I am so glad the show is back! It really makes my week! I get the Lost connection now; it's in the surprisingly #D development of supporting characters who then can become strong enuf to have stories of their own. Compare with the new Hawaii 5-0 or CSI-LA where even the main characters never develop fully.
Are there any other current shows written with this attention to character creation? Locally in Los Angeles, Doc Martin shows weekly. This is 99% character creation and about 1% plot. Person of Interest, and Lost before it, was that unusual, eleusive balance of roughly 50% plot development balanced by roughly 50% character development. That's how I see it tonite anyway.
