Some of you are probably wondering – where the heck has this girl gone? I’ve been taking more days off than usual. My reason? I’ve been spending every spare minute I get watching Lost!
I remember telling you how much I had enjoyed watching Lost, Season 1. Like all addictions, it started small and I found myself wanting to watch it more and more! Right now I’m in the midst of Season 5 but I wanted to share why I’m enjoying the show so much!
One thing I’ve realized is that I’m actually glad I didn’t watch this show when it first aired. It would have driven me bonkers to have to wait a week between episodes! I also think it is better to watch this series on DVD because there are so many small details, nuances and intricaces that I think would have been lost (no pun intended!) if I had been waiting a week between episodes!
So what happens in Seasons 2, 3 and 4? To be frank, it would take the long post I’ve ever written just to scratch the surface of the storyline!
In a nutshell…
On the island
Off the island
On a boat
Off a boat
Babies are born
A LOT of people die (some definitely and some definitely maybe!)
People leave…but will they return?
I’ve been trying to wrap my head around why I love this show so much! I think it is the complexities and the sheer bizarre aspects of the storyline – you really have to suspend your disbelief and just take the story where it goes. I also think the writing is absolutely amazing – I have heard some of THE funniest one-liners on this show! The comic relief balances out with the other elements of this series to make it truly spectacular!
One of my friends told me that when she was watching the series she became obsessed with it and I laughed at her (I was watching Season 1 at the time). I mean, I liked the show but obsessed? Why would anyone be obsessed with this show?
Well, I have to apologize to her (if you are reading – I’m sorry for laughing!) because now I understand why she felt that way as I’m experiencing it myself!
I can’t say enough about this show – I’m halfway through Season 5 and I am so torn – I want to know how things end and weave themselves together but, at the same time, I don’t want it to end!
