Two hours had passed. Never have I been so frustrated and captivated at the same time. I sat on the couch confused. The room was full, but I felt alone. I wanted to scream. I NEED ANSWERS. Stop toying with my heart Lost!
When Are They?
The first few seasons of Lost we were all busy trying to figure out where the survivors are. Well, we know now WHERE they are, kind of, but the writers of the show decided to play a little game that leaves us guessing WHEN they are. Gah! Anytime I think I have even the slightest clue as to what is happening in this damn show, they change time periods.
In addition to a change in time periods, they decide to introduce new characters specific to that time period. I’m all for more intuitive television programming, but this is getting a bit ridiculous already.
Thank God for EW
I invited a few people over for the season premiere and we ended up missing half of the dialogue as we all tried to explain our theories louder than the next person. I’m sure you’ve all experienced the same thing if you ever had company over for Lost.
Now, if you can’t immediately watch the show over again, you’ll need a recap. Thankfully, Entertainment Weekly does one of the best recaps each week that I have ever read. This week their recap is something special. They have over nine pages of pure Lost goodness. The author offers theories, explanations, and things you may have missed the first time around. If you follow Lost, you need to read EW each week.
Read Part 1.
Read Part 2.
All I can say is that they better start wrapping things up. The series is supposed to end with season six and there are more open plot lines than I can shake a stick at. I’ll be along for the ride
