Since last weeks season premier episode I’ve been debating whether or not to write a post about ABC’s hit series “LOST”.  I’ve been watching the show since the beginning back in the Fall of 2004 and I will say that it might be the only television show that I actually schedule time to sit down and watch (usually if I miss other shows I’m interested in I just move on but not so with “LOST”  the hour it is on TV is an hour I spend watching it).  You know I can go on and on about all my theories about what is happening in “LOST” but really I’m not going to bother.  Last nights episode was awesome and raised a whole bunch of more questions (as almost every episode does) and I am sure that when this season closes there will be another mind-fuck cliff hanger that guarantees loyalist to the show will be back the next year.  The one thing that is pissing me off about this season is that there is only going to be eight episodes due to the writers’ strike, so all I want to say is, “Hey! Studios!  Give the writers what they want you fucks!  As long as they are striking my TV watching experience is marginalized!” (I have to side with the writers because I try and be a writer myself).  But anyhow, “LOST” is awesome, I don’t care if that makes me a geek or whatever, I enjoy the show too much for such things to bother me.

  1. I’m the same way with House. I was really annoyed when I found out there were only going to be 3 new episodes in the new year thanks to the strike.

  2. I like the new “flash-forward” format that replaces the flashback thing. It works extremely well. And introducing new characters will add some freshness. That being said, the show is definitely starting to feel scattered. The beauty of the first season was that we knew nothing. The mystery was everywhere. You got the feeling that the writers knew what was really going on, but you didn’t… so you went along, trusting that all would be revealed in due time. That isn’t the case anymore. It’s obvious that the writers are making shit up as they go along, and their ideas are now more centered around the improbable cliff-hanger instead of creating something truly suspenseful and exciting.

    The acting is still top notch, as are the editing and the pacing of the show, but… I don’t know. I’m glad the show will be ending next year. As exciting as it may be to watch a new season, I still know in the back of my mind that LOST will continue to fall short of my expectations after the perfection that was Season One.

    BTW, How the hell does Hurley manage to stay fat being marooned on that island?

    And how do the pretty young ladies keep their legs shaved?
