You don't know, Knickers! You don't know!

If you watched the show, then you'd know! There's lots of stuff!

But seriously, Lost is my favourite show. When it first started I thought it would only be a one season story arc and then they'd be rescued, but they haven't just "crashed on an island and are trying to get back home". All of the characters are connected in ways most of them don't know about, they all have secrets that they try to keep from the others from both before and after arriving on the Island, and the Island itself has a million secrets. There are a more than one lot of "Survivors" on the Island, all arriving at different times and for different purposes.

This isn't a Robinson Crusoe/ Gilligans Island type show. People don't watch it to see their failed attempts at rescue or hold out hope for them to be rescued. Apart from 3 characters in the first season, there haven't been any attempts to get off the Island for about a month and a half (their time; they've only been there for about 2 months) because:

a) most of them have reasons for not wanting to go back to society -- half of them alone are murderers, and some have been "healed" miraculously by the Island.

b) They've established that it's not a "normal" Island and know they're not going to be rescued.

It's an amazing show.

Hmm maybe it's not as stupid as it seems. I AM NOT ONE TO JUDGE, Dartania and I apologize for my assumptions.

I think I might borrow the seasons from someone..or download the episodes. Heh. ALTHOUGH I DO LOVE MY GILLIGANS ISLAND!

LOL .. I forgive you, seizure boy. But seriously, you should borrow the first season from someone and then if you like it, watch the second season in reruns. I know you have a really short attention span so I don't know how you'll deal with storylines that can go on for months (unless its Laguna Beach) ... but this show is so worth it when things get resolved.

rofl..HEY...WATCH IT PAL.

Believe me, if it's a storyline that goes on for months, I'll probably watch the whole season in one day if it's good enough.

Knickers, your post made me LOL.
Sometimes I catch an episode and I like it.
Like the one with the backstory of the lady with cancer. I got a bit misty....
I just think theres too many "mysterious mysteries" going on at once and they never get fully explained.

I love Lost! It's one of my favorite shows. I don't get the people who say it sucks now, it may not be as good as the first season but I still think it's a really good show.

And yeah the Season 3 finale was great...

Well Lost just ended. I won't go into my deep feelings about it, but all I'll say is that I don't think we will ever see another finale for any show that will have told as great of a story, or have as great of an impact on television again (seeing as television will probably be replaced by the internet within the next 20 years).

That ending did not tie up any loose ends whatsoever (and there were ALOT.) Maybe because i'm not a fan, but it was honestly a wtf moment.

I think it's the kind of finale that if you have seen the whole series and then watch the finale again and again and again it will start to make more sense.

i was confused so i looked up some stuff on the internets

Basically they all meet up so they can go to heaven together...RIGHT!!!!

except kate,sawyer,claire and those other people make it off the island,leaving jack dead..hurley as island boss and ben #2 in command.They obviously all eventually die(OBVIOUSLY for them to meet up to go to heaven) but see u don't know what happens in the meantime.theres a loose end for ya.
And the flashside way world of this season is like a purgatory i guess where they all kind of lead more ideal lives and are better versions of themselves and ..yeah.now my rant is confusing me.i'll stop
