No, listen to what they're saying. They don't get their own show
15(26.3%)



It's deeply ironic that the flashbacks, which should work to open up the show and give us new storylines that we're not getting on the island, have been so repetitive, featuring the same characters over and over again. We get more restricted storylines in the past than on the island! What was supposed to be a deserted island has a ridiculous among of characters on it and it's a neverending stream! I'd like to see more variety in the backstories and more focus on original characters on the island, if it's not too late for that. They have it exactly wrong in their focus, if you ask me.

It's so depressing. They're pissing away the potential of one of the greatest TV shows of all time. They really don't get why it was a hit in the first place.

Damon is an idiot not to realize that his insistence on adding new characters is why so many people have stopped watching. It's impossible to have faith in a show that is intent on screwing over its fans like that.
