I finally had a chance to catch up a bit on Lost over the last week and I have to say I love this show (and Hulu). Now that doesn't mean I haven't had my problems with it; I had to take a break midway through seasons 2 and 3 because there was little to no plot development and it was driving me crazy.
Overall, I guess I like complex, mysterious stories with a slow moving plot as long as there's a reward of some crazy action. I mean, I do read Erikson.
But the main reason I enjoy Lost so much is because of the characters. There are so many shows with cardboard-cutout characters (now that's alliteration) where the jerk guy is always giving someone a hard time or where the protagonist always does the right thing whether people think she's crazy or not.
Lost is great because I hated Sawyer at the beginning and now he's my favorite character. This has happened with many of the characters for me in some form or another and I'm actually sad that the reverse has happened for Jack. But Lost does a great job with realistic characters that have really made me attached. Is it pathetic that I'm already sad there's no more Lost after this season?
Don't get me wrong, I'm really happy to have so many answers at one time I don't even know what to do with them.
Any other Lost fans out there? Waxing nostalgic already?
