'Tis better to have watched Lost than never to have watched at all

I have this wee little addiction.

It is called “Lost.”

It is the smart, convoluted, finely detailed and intricately told tale of a group of plane crash survivors on a remote and mysterious island. It is also perhaps the craziest show on TV.

I was hooked within the first 15 minutes of the pilot, and have watched (and rewatched) every episode since.

If you have been living under a rock this week, then you might not know that Lost returns to television with the first of eight new episodes tomorrow night. (Only eight – wah! Damn writers’ strike! Dumb, stubborn television studios!)

To say I am excited is putting it (waaaay) mildly. I am obsessed. I am, right now, the proverbial child on Christmas eve. I am not sure I will be able to sleep tonight.

If you have not watched Lost, well, you my friend have missed out. It has been a roller coaster of “whaaaat’s?” and “OH! MY! GOD’S!” and has launched a thousand wacky theories. And I feel, truly, that with the announced end to the show after 48 more episodes, it is about to get a lot better.

Now that the producers know exactly the timeframe in which they have to finish their story, I think it will move along much more smoothly and with a lot more answers.

But if you have not watched, it’s not too late to catch up. This very clever eight-and-a-half minute video is a start:



Even better, watch the rerun of the Season 3 finale tonight at 8 p.m. (on ABC) followed by a recap of the whole series at 8 p.m. on Thursday. (And then of course, the new episode at 9 p.m.)

Come one, come all! Join me in my obsession!

I am completely with you on this obsession. Totally addicted. Also, completely annoyed that the writer's strike means only 8 episodes. That sucks.

Sounds like the W presidency!

Haven't gotten into Lost myself, but it looks like it's right up my alley.

I was hooked the first season, but I became lost in the second (or was it the third, I can’t quite remember). Missed an eppy here and there and then just lost total interest. I seem to be the only person on the planet who doesn’t watch the show. *sigh*

It's not that I couldn't get hooked....it's that I know I totally would get hooked. I started to watch the new one last night, and then just turned it off. Don't want to get sucked in. That 8 minute recap, though, was really funny.

I share your addiction. As I write we are but a half-hour from air time.
DH is not home and we ALWAYS watch together...not sure if I can wait it out knowing it's on. But it's not like I could watch and then pretend I didn't...just not that kind of show! I don't think I have waited by the window for DH since I firt left the working world to be a SAHM!!
