The more they reveal about the hatch, the more it seems like the writers actually have an explanation for everything that's going on. Unfortunately, it looks like the explanation is going to suck horrible ass. Using a research facility that's a combination of polar bears, electromagnetic research, and other weird psychological experiments seems like the easy way out. I know it would be impossible for the final explanation to satisfy me, but I was hoping for something at least a little more interesting than "the whole thing was a huge science project." Make it a little more interesting, like they're actually stranded in the San Diego Zoo and they've just been too stupid to realize it this whole time. It might not be ground-breaking, but at least it'd be funny.
