I heart LOST

No, really, I do. I know there are a few of you out there that hate the "I heart" thing, but I'm a big fan of it. And I'm an even bigger fan of LOST (which you can see on ABC Thursday nights 9 - 8 central or online at abc.com.)

I am so into the crazy show that I sent a mass email in a sans-serif font announcing a little get together to watch the season four premiere at my place. I even created my own Dharma rations to celebrate.


I'd love to claim that all the Dharma labels were my idea, but I sorta stole it from Emma, who had a LOST party for last season's finale.

There are a lot of people out there that don't get the show, but I think it's great. The back stories are all very interesting, the characters actually have some depth, and I'm intrigued by the mystery of how their lives have intertwined and how they've all been drawn together. Then there's the island and all its mysteries. I'm really hooked.

I know that the show has gotten a little weirder with each season, but I'm still addicted. I even realize when I'm trying to explain the plot or summarize the show to non-watchers that it sounds a little hokey. (All these people crashed on an island. Their lives are inter-related, but it's unclear how or why. These numbers, 4 - 8 - 15 - 16 - 23 - 42, seem to be real important. The island can heal people, like Locke who was a paraplegic, and Rose who had cancer. Oh, and there's this weird smoke monster... and even weirder "others" that live on the island, but don't want people to know about it... lost you already, huh? Pun intended...) But I don't care. There were even a few things that happened during the premiere episode this season that bug me and I don't even care about them (like the Oceanic 6... I don't care. I don't really care who made it back, I care what is going on on the island. I'm sure I'll find out who those six are, but I want to know why pregnant women die and how the crap did Locke's dad get on the island!), but I'll still watch. I own seasons one, two, and three, and I'm sure I'll own every season. And I'm crossing my fingers that the stupid writer's strike will end so my favorite show won't suffer! I love all the twists and turns and character development! Makes it hard to watch if you've never seen an episode before, but it's good stuff.

Basically, this post is just to share with you all that I will be unavailable Thursday nights. But if you don't have anything better to do, you can come over. And I'll try my best to explain what the hell is going on...

I have never watched that show in my life, but I bet if I did I would get hooked, it sounds pretty intriguing. Some time I'll have to get all the DVDs and watch them straight through.

So, I know how you love commentary…so I’m jumping on the band-wagon with all the comments made about LOST, one the greatest sitcoms ever made! In the first season, I enjoyed the realistic approach to surviving a plane crash, waiting to be saved, and finding ways to survive. I agree that the show has gotten a little far-fetched and crazy…but I sorta like it too… Loved the Dharma rations! Sorry about the bright red Jamba spill, uh, whoops:(…

I'm so glad that we share in this addictive liking. I'm totally into watching it till the bitter end. Like I said...it's a train wreck, you have to just keep watching.

Robin and anyone else who is interested, you can actually watch all the episodes from each season on Abc.com so maybe just give one or two episodes a try. You won't regret it.

I thought the show sounded hokey and weird when I heard about during the whole first season but then I watched an episode in the second season and got hooked. Watched the first season in the matter of a week and have been addicted ever since.

Thanks for the party Garrett. The Dharma rations were tasty and the Jamba spill made the event even more memorable! ;)
