So I was thinking... The characters on the show are really starting to annoy me. Sure, strange things are happening to them. And it’s a drama, so there needs to be conflict. But they make very stupid mistakes and are letting characters’ personality problems threaten the safety and well-being of the whole group. I mean, who thinks it’s a good idea to let the crazy people have the guns? “Oh, you’re kinda losing it? Here, have a gun!” And why do they let the blatantly disruptive and uncontrollable guy stay with them? It’s a dangerous island; I think it would be pretty easy to arrange an unfortunate accident. “Sure, your self-destructive behaviors jeopardize us all, but right now let’s just go admire the view from this cliff.”
If only I had a platform for going on about the conventions and cliches of fiction…. ;-) Yes, you can expect to see an advice letter about this sometime soon. I mean, my god; if there was ever anyone who needed help from Dr. Eldritch, it’s those knuckleheads. Then maybe they can stabilize into a peaceful, well-ordered community while they wait to be rescued, and the show would get really dull, and I wouldn’t need to keep watching. Yeah, right.
