Has LOST Jumped the Shark?

I’m a latecomer to LOST.

It’s always tricky when you start watching shows mid-season, but it’s even more difficult when you start watching shows long after the first episode. I might not have the full LOST backstory, but I don’t really feel the need to go back and watch the first couple of seasons (even though we have them on DVD already).

I started watching LOST at some point in the beginning of the previous season, and this new season began just a few weeks ago. So far, so good – at least, in my opinion.

I heard a few people complaining about how this season is going so far, and so I decided to ask my Twitter followers: are you digging it or ditching it?
