I Love Lost

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?


  1. I don't like Lost. I prefer other series like Fringe, House MD, CSI and a few more. I faintly remember that I watched parts of the beginning and I felt lost.

    For me Lost is/was a series which you either like or dislike. Nothing between.

  2. @ediFanoB - That's definitely true. I almost gave up on it after the first few seasons because it was so insanely confusing and kept leaving you with more questions than answers.

  3. BIG Lost fan here! I'm three weeks behind at the moment due to being busy, but I've recorded them and I hope to catch up this weekend. My favorite characters are Sawyer, Juliet, Charlie, Sayid, Hurley, and Jacob. Actually, I think I love everyone besides Kate and Jack LOL.

    Do you watch Flash Forward as well?

  4. Also a big Flash Forward fan. Great show too.

    That's funny and I think I'm the same way. Everyone's great but Jack and Sawyer. Nicely put. :)

  5. Oh me me! I'm obsessed!
    I'm even taking part in the LOST reading challenge :)

  6. @Juju - That's awesome. It's nice to finally get some answers isn't it? :)

  7. I've watched Lost since season 1, and I've loved nearly every episode. While there was some stagnation, I never really didn't like the show. I am glad this is the last season, though, and I'm quite eager to see how the whole thing wraps up.

    What's up with people not liking Jack? He and Ben are definitely my two favorites.

  8. @logankstewart - I think it's because he became a downer in season 5. He just got weird. I still like him, but less than most characters.
