Discussion: Has Lost Jumped The Smoke Monster?

As you guys probably know, I'm a Lost fanatic. I love time travel films, Back to the Future is my favorite movie, so this season's time travel centric storyline has been heaven for someone like me. But the last two episodes have been disappointing, and the end of last night's episode was completely bizarre, and not in a good way. I've seen discussion on twitter and the blogs that also agree. It seems to me that some Lost viewers like the mystical/supernatural stuff while others like the sci-fi stuff, and the last two episodes have been a switch back to mystical from the sci-fi-heavy season.

Don't get me wrong, I'm still on board — Lost IS still the best show on television. I don't personally believe the show jumped the shark, but I thought I'd take this slow news day to create a discussion post for Lost viewers to talk about the recent events. What did you think? Spoilers are a go.

Oh, and I stole the phrase "Has Lost Jumped the Smoke Monster" from Katey Rich.
