I remember the first episode of Lost and how much I disliked it. I felt completely, well, lost. The mass number of characters, the chaos that ensued from the first episode coupled with my own theories on the plot ( little did I know that it would take more than just a glimpse to deduce this ever evolving story) I was over whelmed and ultimately tuned out.
5 Season would go on and I would be living an cocoon of ignorance bliss. There would be satire references to show that would just go over my head or characters that I would see on movies that people would quickly say
oh there were on LOST. At first I just ignored them, but its popularity seemed to explode the more I resisted falling prey to its enthralling storyline and captivating cast. No, I would not fall into that trap. Instead I would watch horrible shows like One Tree Hill ( which should be cancelled by the way) or Nip/Tuck.
Finally after some pleas from my friends and girl friend did start this belated story. I was so far behind but luckily my stubbornness also benefited me.
Unlike most of the loyal followers/fan who had to wait a week between shows and months between seasons I had the fortunate luck of being able to just watch them straight through. I re-visited season 1, this time with an open mind and a patient attitude. Its took 3 episodes for me to admit that I was terribly wrong about the show, that it was perhaps the greatest adventure to be put on TV. To tell you the truth season's 1-3 where kinda a blur, I was trying to hold on for dear life as the show took me in and out of the space continuum, well not really, but I was hooked. My girlfriend who wanted to re watch the shows with me couldn't keep up. I was on a torrid pace to catch up to season 6 which was a month away.
Now as there's one show left before sunday's finale I'm sad that the story has to end. Like any great story an end must be part of it.I have to say that my favorite season has to be season 5, the story well takes off there and we're able to put things together, not completely but there's a lot answers. My favorite Characters, well I really like Mr.Ecko, Sawyer, Juliette, Hurley, and Miles. Don't get me wrong Jack,Kate, and Locke are great but the role players really make the main characters shine.
Its funny, I would of never really imagined myself being so into a show like this but then again I usually don't like getting LOST either!
