I agree, although I still enjoyed the show and can't wait for it to return. I would've rather just seen the dramas unfold between strangers stranded together on an island than all the weird stuff coming into play. However, there was just enough of the "drama between strangers" left to make me want to watch it, and ignore the weird stuff. I thought it still made good TV.
We want to live vicariously through tv and movies, in that at least I, and probably lots of others, would like to know what we'd do if stranded like that without having to go through it, or at least for ideas on what we'd do if we were... I don't think I'll be bothered by any weird monsters any time soon so that I couldn't care less about. Maybe the producers will pick up on that and gear it back towards the personal side of things.
