LOST??? I am....

OK, so I literally never watched a full episode of lost (I saw about 2/3 of the pilot and a few minutes of other episodes here and there), so I have absolutely no idea what’s going on with any of this...

Strangely, all of these “unanswered questions”, actually make me want to watch the show MORE. I’m not quite sure why...

Enjoy the video:

i watched the first 3-4 episodes and it never grabbed me...now that its done i will probably get the DVDs just to give it another try...

Smoke Monster? Wow. Now, I definitely want to watch LOST. I have never watched any of its seasons...:)

Ha ha! That was great. I quite liked the show until it ended and left all these questions unanswered! I think the writers were just making it up as they went.

@ Brian - it never really grabbed me either. As it dragged on, it didn't really attract me since I heard it kept getting more convoluted with no possible end in sight.

@ Mr.Stupid - as much as the convoluted nature put me off, it's the wide variety of elements that now makes me interested. Kind of a paradox...but what I really want is just the meat of the show without all the wandering.

@ Lisa - I think that's what many writers do...I know that's what I do anyway. But they're generally not getting paid thousands of dollars to throw out something random and hopefully tie it together at the end.

I think, from what I've seen/heard, that what I need is the 'cliff notes' version. Just pare it down to the core elements. Keep all the craziness and the time travel or the sci-fi weirdness or whatever...but do away with so many of the meandering plot points that were meaningless and provide us a good solid "edited" version that includes all of the meat without the fat/gristle. That could be done in, what, 2-3 season's worth? ;)
