So, Lost returned last night. Now, if the ratings are anything to go by, you weren't that interested. Yes, some of you watched, but far fewer than watched last year. I'm not quite sure how that could be though. How is it that you started watching this show, that you really paid attention to what was going on, and now you feel like you can just drop it? Seriously, that's something I just don't understand.
Let's examine that idea a little more fully, shall we.
You sat down during the first season of Lost, you were like "smoke monster?," "where'd the dog go?," "wait, Locke was in a wheelchair?," "I don't get it, but I so want to know more." And then, at some point you decided that you'd had enough. Maybe you cared about The Others and what was in the hatch, maybe you didn't. Maybe you fell off the train when the show started to flash forward instead of flash back. Maybe you were good with that, but simply couldn't take the idea that Ben was going to use whatever was under The Orchid to "move the island." Whatever the case, while a decent number of you are still watching the show, it's way less than the number of folks who used to watch.
Now, I've fallen off the train on other shows in the past, most notably Alias, which I really liked for several seasons, I simply couldn't accept anymore by the final batch of episodes. But, Lost still intrigues me, every bend, every twist, every slight change in the story intrigues me even more. I didn't watch the recap last night, but I definitely felt as though a mere two hours of the show last night was way too little. What I want is a marathon of new episodes, I want to sit down and watch 12 hours of Lost in a row.
