You da man!


  1. I used to be a Lost fan, but they lost me due to a combination of their erratic schedule, certain stupid plot turns, and other priorities in my life. Frankly, I’m surprised to hear it’s still in production. Perhaps this is the season where you’ll see Jack on water skis trekking back to the island with only a ramp and a shark between him and the island.

  2. Rick, Rick, Rick… you show have stayed with it. When did you bow out? 2nd or 3rd season? Things got a bit silly for a bit, especially in the early 3rd, but the finale of the 3rd kicked off a non-stop roller coaster.

  3. I think it was in the third season that it lost it’s grip on me. I hated the whole Kate/Sawyer/Jack thing (creating romance where didn’t already exist is often a sign of writing weakness). Last I recall seeing was they were off the island, and IIRC, Jack trying to persuade Kate (and Hurley?) to go back.

    Do you suppose it’s possible to pick back up on it after missing so much?

  4. Yeah, the consensus — even among the executive producers — is that things got a bit wobbly there at the time you stopped… I don’t blame you. Can you pick it up again? I think so… I’m pretty sure all of the seasons are on Hulu. Really, beginning with that finale, seasons 4 and 5 were strong. Not perfect, but much more like the first season than the first half of season 3.


  5. Your opinion provides me with incentive to rent the DVDs. I’ve heard so many good things about it, but have never had the time to watch it.

  6. I strongly second Chris’s recommendation! Lost is one of the best dramatic series ever produced for television, notwithstanding some weaknesses in the 2nd half of season 2 and the first half of season 3. I lived in Honolulu while they filmed the first four seasons and had the opportunity to see lots of the sets and meet some of the cast. They were always filming all over Oahu, and their set and FX departments were always doing a great job dressing up Honolulu to look like London, Miami, and Sydney. Great show, and gives one a LOT to consider in terms of philosophy. Much better to watch a whole season quickly on DVD, as well!
