*Another post that WordPress ate. Thank goodness I saved it. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR….
I realize I am about nine to four years late to this discussion, but I just finished Lost on Netflix.
Lost to me, was one of those shows that you couldn’t pay me to watch. Like Heroes. Which I still refuse to watch, but alas, as I look over my shoulder, there it is in my Netflix que. I am a brat like that. Tell me it is great, pushaw, I will not watch what EVERYONE is watching.
You will find me over at the Indie Channel, because I am awesome like that.
(No I am not btw, just a brat)
Speaking of spoilers, while I appreciate this warning, if a show is this old, how long do you have to shield people from opinions, etc? Is there a time frame on this?
I don’t even know if this will have spoilers, I just can’t be bothered to worry about it so the warning remains.
I really loved Lost.
As much as it pains me to say, I thought this show was well written, and I got hooked. My stepson was watching it, and I was all, “Pushaw pushaw.” He said, “Just watch one episode.”
Six seasons, with around fifteen or more episodes per season, finished just on Monday.
I tend to cry at the last episodes of shows. I am not sure why. I am assuming the same reason I can cry at a Publix commercial or a Hallmark commercial.
I even refuse to watch movies that MIGHT make me cry.
Marley and Me. Hell no
In her Shoes. Nuh uh.
Any movie with soft music in the trailer. NOPE
I cry at most series finales except Seinfeld, I mean I loved that show but what a stinker of a finale. I was happy to cry at the end of Lost and put it away and enjoy the fact that I FINISHED!!
Wait, Lost I’m gonna let you finish, but Newhart had the best season finale of all time.
(I will be so impressed if anyone remembers this.)
Point being, it was really a great show. And I am not sure if I would have followed it when it aired. I hate commercials. And you can binge watch any show you like on Netflix. (That is with the exception of Mad Men and Breaking Bad. I will do commercials for these. That’s about it)
I do not recommend binge watching unless you have a day or four hundred to sit down and just get flat out addicted to the characters, story line, & ending.
Then the inevitable feeling of confusion once a show ends.
“What am I going to do now? All these other shows suck. I want more of the one I just watched 578 episodes of.”
It is irrational, but that is how I felt.
Either way, if you haven’t seen it I recommend it. But hang in there on Season 5. It drags. Quite a bit. I had to pass the hubs, because he lost interest and I was BOUND and determined to FINISH it. And Finish it I did.
I even had a dream about the black smoke monster.
That is how invested I was.
Any shows anyone can recommend for me to become addicted to next? I am caught up on Mad Men, Breaking Bad, and Orange is the New Black (Fabulous show btw).
Any thoughts? We can talk about the ending of Lost because I gave that warning up there.
