BETTY AND VERONICA TAKE ON SUBTERRANEAN RIVERDALE: All I really have to say about this episode of Lost, 42 minutes in, is (a) I'm pretty sure if you let them run long enough, all of J.J. Abrams's shows will eventually dissolve into rip-offs of Silent Hill -- we were really about one sweeps period away from Felicity eating the brain out of a townsperson; and (b) while stranded on a remote island with people complaining about mysterious fevers and hatches all over the place marked "quarantine", you generally want your country doctor/epidemiologist to realize that maybe "roseola virus" isn't exactly a likely diagnosis for a child who has lived his entire life in a community in which there is literally nobody from whom the kid could have caught the roseola virus.
