I can't help but write something about Lost.  The show is great!  The season premier was great!  Whats not to say about this show?  I'll try to avoid spoilers of the premier, in case you haven't seen it yet.

Clearly, there are philosophical themes abundant in Lost.  Characters named John Locke, Desmond David Hume, Rousseau, etc., can't be ignored.  But even some of the smaller details reveal great things to think about.

In last night's premier, eagle eyed viewers (and who isn't watching Lost with eagle eyes now?) might have spotted a copy Kierkegaard's Fear and Trembling in the entrance to the temple, which really matches the the overarching thematic struggle of faith and reason that the show has been dancing around for 6 seasons now.

And I'm intrigued by the "Flash-Sideways."  Is the entire season going to be like this?  So many questions.... and hopefully they will be answered soon!
