I know there's a couple Lost-watchers here, so I hope no one minds an off-topic post about it.
I loved last night's episode, but does it seem to anyone else that they're setting up that everything is a big pointless loop. (While stuck in 1974 and bouncing through other past times the survivors seem to be, through their interactions with young Eloise, Ben, and Widmore, to be setting up the events that lead to their own plane crash, which leads to them traveling in time. And repeat).
Meanwhile, though, I'm entertained every week.
