    The TV-Series \"Lost\"

    I just watched the two last episodes of the first season of the TV-series "Lost" tonight (don't worry: no spoilers).
    I rarely watch television, and I must say that I dislike most of the junk that is aired these days - especially the obnoxious "reality" shows that are popping up on all channels, competing on the lowest denominator. Most of it is a mindless waste of time

    ...All right, I just had to get that of my chest... The thing is; there is one show (that I know of) right now that I enjoy watching, and that show is (or was) "Lost". It's got many qualities: Interesting and complex characters and story-line (for a TV series that is), generally good direction, surpisingly good acting all over, music that does not annoy - in fact sometimes on the contrary, and finally the series avoids the most obvious clichés.

    Some episodes was better than others, of course, but I didn't see any outright "bad" ones, and the best moments were actually very high quality television. As good as it gets. So, I'll be looking forward to the next season. Hopefully they can keep up the quality of the first.

    So, has anyone else here been following it? opinions?

    Hmm... Well, I haven't seen it yet - but maybe I will, at least, see a couple of episodes because of your endorsement here. It's worth the time spent?

    That's always a tough question. Compared to, say, working I guess it's not worth it... but we all need some time off from thinking. What I mean is; as far as a tv-series goes I think "Lost" is worth the 40 minutes spend watching each episode.

    If you're interested in checking it out, I definately recommend starting out with the first episode (if possible) and go forward one by one chronological instead of jumping around

    Oh you do, do you? I was planning on seeing the last episode first and going backwards...

    Well... now I've seen the first half of the pilot - a rather suspense-filled show it seems... like some sort of mix between Robinson Crusoe, Survivor and Jurassic Park.
    So far so good...

    No, (I) haven't gotten any further yet. Been busy with work and exams. But I'll get to it, eventually.

    Lost is awesome. Really awesome. I got hooked from the beginning. I have only watched until episode 21. Must watch the rest soon.
    I love the concept. They took a not-so-original concept and made it original. Or something.
    This is definetly one of my favorite tv-shows. Its right up there in my top list among Simpsons, Futurama, Family Guy and Band of Brothers

    I was really hooked throughout the first season and it felt like it was a massive build up. But i was really let down by seasons 1 finally. It felt like the whole thing was just a waste of time.

    Still, Season 2 is broadcasting here soon.

    Do you know. Its odd. My business is film/video production and I have not seen 5 minutes of Lost - or 24 for that matter.

    I know how behind I am. I much prefer films - 2 hours spent that I wont get worried about missing the next episode of!

    Yeah true, films is where you can sit down, and relax...and know that there is going to be an end at the end.
