Some people not too happy with LOST

Chuck Barney has an article on Contra Costa that is going to make a few Lost fanatics upset –
Take a hint: Characters — not symbols — make show.

While I agree with some of what he’s saying, I do have to point out that the show has been very popular to this point for the very things that he wants to change about the show: The mythology, puzzles, and the whole sense of “What the heck is going on here”.

Tinkering with something that’s working never ends up well. Let’s hope the show runners can keep a good balance, and not dump what’s made the show work.
