There's a lot of talk out there about how LOST has jumped the shark, or lost its way, or is otherwise undeserving of a fan base. I'll tell you right now that I disagree.
I love this show. It is the only thing on TV that I watch. And if there are people who think the show has derailed, maybe they should re-evaluate their lives to see if they're too interesting.
Because the reason I think I like this show so much is that my life holds few distinctions on a day-to-day basis. Sometimes my week goes something like this:
We have church, so it must be Sunday.
We'll have FHE tonight, so it must be Monday.
Miriam has playgroup this morning, so it must be Tuesday.
So the presence of one episode of an intriguing, suspenseful show every Wednesday night adds considerable spice to the routine. LOST can string me along all it wants: I'm in it for the long haul.
Bring on the cliffhangers.
In the meantime, please enjoy this video made (not by me) to go with Season 1 of LOST. It is actually quite clever if you are familiar with the events of that season. If not, it will make little sense.
