During tonight's episode of ABC's Lost (Tricia Tanaka Is Dead), it suddenly dawned on me what I had been missing from the show for a good amount of time (hm, maybe a year's worth of episodes?): The comedic chemistry/interplay between the "minor" characters. I didn't mind that no mysteries were resolved, nothing spooky/supernatural happened - but I really enjoyed the name-calling between Hurley, Sawyer, Jin and Charlie and watching Sawyer teach Jin some English. I also liked the "reunion" scene and the re-emergence of Sayid and Locke.

Maybe I liked this episode so much because it was a break from all the Others drama and from Jack?
