One fan on ABC's Lost forum commented, "my first impression is no, I didn't like [the episode] much. It seemed like such a cop out, having two realities . . . it just turned into, yeah, this was the easiest thing [writers] could do."

Another disgruntled viewer noted, "I'm confused and LOST, I feel as if I'm going through final exams week. These writers are killing me." I agree with the test analogy, I felt I had to watch two hours of catchup shows just to be prepared for the premiere!

But others loved the mind-bending time travel premiere, saying, "I thought it was an awesome start to the final season," on The Blog Prophet. "Questions? Yes. But without them, it would be boring!"

As Lost begins its last supper, will viewers (who were up 6% for the premiere) stick around for the answers producers promise to deliver in Lost's final season?
