Today’s The Day For LOST!

23 May

And I’m celebrating it by linking to an article at Salon.com that states that LOST is frustrating (it is) and so what? HAVE A LITTLE PATIENCE PEOPLE! This payoff is going to be huge, especially when the series actually ends 49 episodes from now. Can’t people just enjoy that incredible tale that the writers are telling?

Of course not. People are impatient fools, ready to jump on a show if they dislike that they aren’t given the whole plot in 5 minutes. You see it everywhere that LOST has declined. Get a grip! It hasn’t declined from anything…more answers have been given in the past season than the first two combined. It’s just that more questions are being posed, more characters are being introduced, existing characters are continuing to develop. It’s very rare that a scene in LOST is wasted. Every sentence can be deconstructed to perhaps mean something else, which is being done all over the internet. Enjoy this! The thrill of the hunt and the thrill of the wait makes every hour that LOST airs THAT much more exciting.

Do all the little connections and overlapping flashbacks mean something?   Is Desmond actually seeing the future?  And if so, is it able to be changed?  Will Charlie die?  Did a certain missing kidney save Locke from an untimely death?  Why the hell didn’t Richard age at all?  What exactly  happened to Jack between the surgery on Ben and the friendly catch we saw?  Is Juliette a double-agent?  Or maybe even a triple-agent?  Will Rosseau meet her daughter Alex?  How’s Walt and Michael? WHAT THE HELL WAS UP WITH JACOB?  What about the black smoke monster?  Will they find a cure for the dying mothers?  Will they get off the island?

These are only some of the questions currently unanswered.  And don’t expect them to all be answered at 9pm tonight.  But enjoy the nuggets we do get, because we are witnessing a masterpiece. Action, character development, mystery, comedy, it has it all.

    The only impatience I’ll have with Lost is having to wait almost 8 months for season 4.

    I think the show is every bit as good as it’s always been. I don’t understand how anyone could just stop watching the show. I’m hooked. That show is the black tar heroin of TV.

    I thought Lost had kind of lost it’s way in the first 6 episodes of the year – but I’m patient, and boy was that patience rewarded on Wednesday.

    I’ve always thought that lost was a show that was too popular for the masses – the masses like CSI and Law & Order. A show with the creativity that Lost has is never that popular – and the people that want everything tied up in a little ball, they’re the ones that left. The people that stayed are the people that the show was directed to – loyal viewers willing to take on a challenge.
