Previously on LOST... [season finale tonight!]


I have explained to you my love affair with Lost on ABC right? I HAVEN'T?! Well allow me to proceed. I have been watching Lost since it's second season trying desperately to never miss an episode. I only started watching it after my colleagues would not let me go a week with out saying, "did you watch Lost yet? "Did you watch Lost yet?" "Did you...?" "Did you...?" "Did you...?" Well, finally my friend Eric put the first season in my hand. He said, "watch the first 4 episodes, if you don't like it bring it back to me." I thought to myself, "that's a fair enough assignment." Well I waited until that weekend and, I am pleased to say, it was EPIC. J.J. Abrams had created pure episodic gold. The best show on Television period, well Arrested Development isn't on T.V. anymore so that doesn't count. I watched nearly all 24 episodes in one sitting. At least a full 9 hours straight. I had been bitten by the bug that is Lost-ism. I couldn't WAIT for the the second season. I have been watching faithfully ever since. I love all the characters but especially Jack. I do like Ben even though he is the ominous menace in this show. I do think we have more to learn about Ben and that there is more to this "bad guy" thing but that is yet to be revealed. Anyway, I want Kate and Jack to stay together, I want Charlie to still be alive, I want Claire to be okay, I want Sawyer to find his way and Desmond, as much as I like him, he's too much of a loose cannon right now and probably needs to be offed. I want Jin, Sayed and Locke to live and I want to know who is in the CASKET!

Anyway, that's my Lost rant. I love this show and if you haven't watched it. You don't know what you're missing until you watched the first 4 episodes. You'll know if you love it or not by then.

UPDATE: SOOOO all this noise about I can't wait to see it and my stupid DVR didn't work!!! GAHHH I missed 2 hours!! So now I have to catch it on ABC.com. Oh well I didn't miss it, miss it.

Hmmm I never did get into Lost althought I heard it was good! I favoured Grey's Anatomy...!

Haha, perhaps I come off a little more frazzled than I actually am. That's just who I am. I'm very much a day- and night- dreamer. I think a lot. I'm very introspective. I was attempting light-heartedness with my comment about my dreams. Most of them are actually really interesting! The tossing and turning is a constant thing. I just move a lot when I sleep. The thing with my friend isn't bothering me in perhaps the way that you're thinking. It's more of he and I just needing to figure out what we're doing. But, otherwise, I'm a-ok. Houston got a little bit of rain today. Mmmm, muggy.

I just had to basically skim over your whole post because I've never watched Lost. I don't really watch much tv that isn't reality. I know, it's sad. I need a fictionalized drama or comedy to get hooked on. But see, I have this little problem of not being abot to watch a tv show unless I've seen it from the VERY beginning.

But I saw your little mention of Arrested Development, and I'm in agreement with you on that one. SO wishing it were still on tv. I should really buy the dvds....

But yes, you're right about the dentist. I just smile and nod politely while he jabbers on about fillings and sealants and when to make appointments while I'm cursing him in my head. You've got my personality pegged.

The previous post by Angela is pretty much what I was going to say.

I don't watch much TV except for Survivor, but I did LOVE 'Arrested Development' so perhaps I'll heed your testimony and hook myself up with 'Lost.' Like I need another addiction.

Angela said...

Well you may like to know that I've never really been a fan of Survivor... I just have never understood all the hype.

I may check out Lost, but I'm not making any promises.
