Have I talked about ABC’s Lost on here before? Oh my goodness! What great TV! Somebody give a shout for the writers of this series. It truly is one of the most captivating shows I’ve seen in years. I didn’t watch last year as it sounded to me like just another Survivor but with an official script. I was wrong. I caught some repeats this summer and was hooked. I think I saw three of the 24 episodes with dabs from two or three others.
I was going to be good and wait to rent the show from Netflix, but when the first season released on DVD on September 6th, I could not resist. They were on sale so I bought them. I took several DVDs with me on my trip (jumped out of my airplane seat and scared my seatmates twice when something unexpected happened) and have watched not much else while I played catch up. I finished the Season One cliffhanger last night.
Rave, rave, rave.
Tonight is the premier of Season Two. (One hour of a recap of Season One, then someone goes into "the hatch" in the premier). Who knows where the writers will take us this year? An island monster, polar bears in the tropics, the French chick, the Others, the hatch. Oh, and who will live and who will die? Will they kill off a favorite character or will they all survive until the series ends, however many years away that is? And which character(s) do I like the most? Every time they show me a bit more of their pasts, I am so eager to know them more. Every single one of them. Jack, Sayid, Charlie, Sawyer, Kate, Jin, Sun, Locke, Michael, Claire, Hurley… And which of the extra castaways will rise this season to some importance?
I don’t recommend much TV, but boy oh boy, do I recommend this one. The writing is excellent and so is the acting. Kudos to ABC on the well deserved Emmy wins for this one.
