LOST!


Are you a fan of Lost? Well 2 out of the 3 people in this home are more like fanatics! Alex and I started watching the show when it first came on. We've continued ever since.
I must confess, though, it has helped me tremendously to have someone explaining to me what is actually happening. Because what I thought happened didn't really happen. And, what really happened was so far from what I'd even imagined! Thank goodness Alex 'gets it'...cause I don't mind telling you, it's way too deep for me sometimes.
That being said, the characters have a way of drawing you in and making you really care about them. And, a week is a long time to wait and find out what has happened to one of your favorites! And, waiting many months is torture!
Alex is a very big sci fi fan. When I saw how much he enjoyed this show, I began getting him the complete seasons for Christmas or other occasions. So, we have all the shows up until tonight. I think that's a very good thing, too, because, when this season is over...I plan to start over from the beginning and watch it as someone who has a small clue what's going on!
If you have not watched up till now...don't watch tonight. You could never make heads or tails of it. And, you would not know if you were in the future or years in the past. Get it on Net Flix or buy the seasons, and watch it from the beginning. It is worth it. Obviously, this has been written by very clever writers. And, is the first TV series written with a fixed number of episodes. Most shows keep going as long as there are ratings, but this one was written to tell the story, and then stop.
So, this is the final year. It's gonna be good!
EDITED TO ADD: It was as good as I hoped! Many questions answered...many new questions raised! Such good storytelling!

Hate to be a *Donna Downer* but, I cannot STAND anything science fiction. I know, I know, people who love it, LOVE it...just not me. BUT, I think I may be in the minority because "LOST" seems to be such a popular show. Oh well, call me *Donna*.:)

Yes, I have been watching since day one. I like when they do the recap shows, that helps me allot!
Enjoy!

I have never watched it, so I have no idea. Since we live here I almost never watch TV. I'm not interested in their local news here, I can never seem to remember the channel line-up, we don't want the TV on when Austin is awake, I can't even figure out how to turn the upstairs TV on because there are so many components attached to it. In the evening when I'm down here in our "apartment" I am usually at the computer and Dick has the TV. Oh well, I actually lived the first 39 years of my life without a TV at all, so it's no big loss to me. I do wish we had one in our bedroom. I always liked watching TV in bed.

Have I rambled enough? Hahahahaha! By the way, I made an extra trip to the dentist today, and there is no infection, just normal post-extraction pain. Thanks for caring.

Not a fan, fanatic, or even one-time viewer. Never seen one episode. I'm saving them for you to view and to rack your brain trying to figure out. I think it sounds like it would totally fry this analytical brain that has to understand everything down to the minute detail.

All I can say after watching last night's episode is "WOW". I love the characters and how they have evolved over the years and you could really see that in last nights episode.

I usually end up explaining to my hubby - at least what I think is going on - quite often I am proven wrong!

I didn't watch one episode, so if I ever do watch it, it will be on DVD....I just decided I couldn't get hooked on one more t.v. show! :)
