  1. Coments on the show "Lost"?


    Is this a popular series! Is it entertaining and thought provoking?


  2. Supposedly. No.

  3. Why do you say that? Its prime time and has been on for some time now. If it wasnt popular and selling advertising, would they keep it?

  4. It is if you start at the beginning - I'd say there's no way to jump in the middle & not drown.

    Do you think it is a work of creative genius?

  6. The first 4 seasons sure *seem* like genius...but they have to pull it all together and wrap it up satisfactorily in the next season-and-a-half - if they can actually get 'er done without jumping the shark or screwing the pooch, I'll have to say "YES! GENIUS!!!"

    As it stands now: the most original storytelling, the best character development, the most compelling relationships (not romantic), the best long-arc drama is on Lost. TV is absolutely rolling in great shows lately: BSG, House, Heroes, Fringe, Bones are all exceptional television - and Lost is as good as any of them, and maybe better than all of them.

    If you're that curious, Netflix can hook you up w/ the previous seasons - it is absolutely one hail of a ride!

  7. It's really annoying me that there's still stuff from session 1 that we haven't been told. like what the black smoke is. Sure we've been told what its for but not what is!

  8. My favorite show on television at the moment.

    Great storytelling, awesome characters that you actually care about, cool mysteries that will have you making up theories all day, cool plot twists, and awesome payoffs that reward you for paying attention.

    It's not a show you can just jump into in the middle of... you need to experience it from the beginning, much like a good book. If you are the type of person who wants everything wrapped up in a neat little bow at the end of each episode and can't handle a mystery being introduced that doesn't get an answer until many episodes later, this show isn't for you. If you enjoy suspense, drama, smart writing, and a bit of sci-fi then you'll love it.

    Watch it from the beginning though!

  9. Yes I have been sucked into the Lost phenomenon since season 1. It always keeps me on my toes and asking questions. Once 1 question is answered, they open the door for 3 more questions. It kicks @ss. No doubt. John Lock is the SH*T.

  10. Oh, and I couldn't agree more, if you have missed a season, don't try to play "catch up".

  11. So it is thought to be entertaining and thought provoking, as a general consensus. Does anyone know who wrote it or who that person is? I agree that it is great television. I wonder if the same person wrote heroes and house they do seem similar.

  12. Bah, it doesn't do anything for me. Battle Star Galactica, the original series, for the win.

  13. What I like about it is that its a mind-expanding type of show. The viewer keeps reaching for whats going on, kind of like a chinese puzzle.

  14. Love the show. Started watching it last august on DVDs. Finished just in time for season five to start. I got used to watching as many episodes at a time as I wanted to. Not the case anymore, one episode a week, sucks...

  15. Yeah, I think its one of the best programs on TV, right now, it sells a ton of advertising. Does anyone know who the genius behind it is?

  16. great show, very addictive,... but its called "Lost" for a reason, b/c every time I which im totally lost,...lol.

    I agree. It almost seems to me like they have no idea how they are going to end it.

    I will bet money, that I dont have yet, that the writer had that in mind, as well as a galaxy of other things. Somehow it reminds me of the show, "Seinfeld" it seems to have the same intellectual, "off the wall" tack.

    JJ Abrams is the producer: same guy is behind the new "Star Trek" movie, was the force behind "Alias", and did (directed?) "Cloverfield". He also directed Mission Impossible 3.

    The main creative forces are Damon Lindelof & Carleton Cuse: I believe they do the bulk (if not *all*) of the writing; they also do the planning, etc. It's *their* show.

    "Heroes" is a completely different team; can tell you Bryan Fuller has re-joined "Heroes" after a couple years on his own show, "Pushing Daisies". Fuller was also the main writer behind "Wonderfalls", if that's not too obscure....

  21. JJ Abrams, is he kind of a baby-faced kid that likes to grill steaks with "ready to ignite" charcoal?

  22. HAW! no idea, bro - absoutely no idea at all...

  23. Okay, I just had to be sure ther werent any posers in this thread. Can anyone see a similarity with other programs like; Seinfeld, House, Heroes, Fear Factor,?

  24. Never watched "Seinfeld", nor "Fear Factor". As much as I like both "Heroes" & "House", the only real 'similarities' I see between them (*and* "Lost" (...and BSG...and others)) are compelling stories, good writing, well-developed characters, great acting, and plenty of plot twists.

    Personally, I like shows where I *don't* have it basically figured out early-on; where I don't hate the characters, make fun of them, & wish they would DIAF (dual credit here to the actors and the writers); where the premises are not so ridiculous I can't 'suspend my disbelief'. Most shows just don't hold my interest because there's nothing really going on. Same is true of books, articles, conversations - but I guess that's predictable.

    lol,.... family guy anyone? Same "outta nowhere" concept. LOL I had to have a buddy explain to me about the island "moving," and the "time shifts." I was like ummmm, Im still wondering about the damm monster running around in the jungle....
