Season 2: The Hatch
Season 3: The Others
Season 4: The Rescue
Season 5: The Return

I give it Above Average and Above Average.

It wasn't all that mind-blowing as some older Lost episodes, but they were good and moved at a nice pace. They did however remind me how much Juliet annoys me. Can we kill her off already?

I also have to say that this season didn't have as strong an opening teaser as previous seasons.

And what did they mean by "cut off her other hand"? Will she lose a hand?

Well, I'd argue it's better than Season 4's.

Hurley wrecking up LA in his Camaro was cool, but it doesn't compare to Drs. Chang, Faraday and The Donkey Wheel.

Juliet kicks ass. She's hot as hell, smart and totally composed. I love her.

I thought that was referring to the fact he intended to chop one hand off irrelevant of what they said, and unless they started talking he was going to chop the other one off as well...

He said the first hand we're going to cut off to prove we're serious. So he didn't have foreknowledge of anything he was just a Dharma goon who was going to chop off her hand to get her to talk.

I think Juliet is a fascinating character who was criminally underused in S4. She was the second best thing about S3 after Ben as a regular.

I thought the opening scene was fantastic. Definitely better than S1 and S4. I dunno how I'd rank it against Desmond's and Juliet's openings, but it was certainly the most revelatory one. We learned Candle's background, true name, the purpose of the Arrow (something I've always wondered about) and the origin of the Orchid AND the fact that Faraday had travelled back in time to the 70s. Yowza.

Re: Lost 5x01: "Because You Left" & 5x02: "The Lie"

After re-watching the first four seasons over again I was pretty pysched to have Lost back. That being said, I was a little underwhelmed.
There were a few nice aha moments and a few nice scenes, but otherwise, it felt pretty average and more a way of setting the stage for the rest of the season rather than a couple of power-house episodes.
It's definitely wonderful to have Lost back, but these episodes didn't do anything to blow me away like some of the season 4 stuff did.
