Addicted to LOST

Lately I’ve been watching a lot of LOST…. 🙂

I love it! ❤ It’s … it’s … I cannot find a proper word to describe.  A magnificent series, with plot twists, drama, romance, humor, the whole package. 😛 So much imagination! 😀 I will be so sad when it ends 😦

As far as characters go… I have started to like Sawyer much more… Not from the biceps and the cute dimples, mind you, but because of his change of character. Plus Jack lately has been getting on my nerves… 😛 Being overly stubborn and not listening.

In the beginning of the series I wasn’t sure whether I should like John or not. Now I am convinced, I can’t get enough of him, for some reason.

And Sayid… The way he stands, his posture, how he holds himself and talks… I would surely want him as a friend.

I like Richard as well. He gives off a feeling of trust.

Kate? Well she is just beautiful. 😀

Jin… Ah, Jin and Sun. Damn it, I can’t say too much without giving out spoilers. 😛 (Is there a spoiler code around here?)

What do I like about LOST? Hmmm ….

The acting… It’s so REAL …. You can almost feel their feelings… You can see the feelings on their faces… You can sympathize with them and get angry at them.

The music … It’s touching, beautiful. It enhances the whole experience.

The whole feeling of the series… I don’t get a dark feeling from it, even though it’s labelled as “drama”. There are many heart-warming and happy moments as well.

The plot and the mystery of course … What is there not to get hooked on?!

Yesterday was LOST day. I watched ten, yes ten whole episodes, each of 42 minutes at least … Which means 420 minutes of the day, 7 full hours were on watching LOST.

And I wanted more…

But alas, I reached the up-to-date episode now. I am waiting for the 6th episode of the 6th season to air on March 2nd. This is the final season… Damn it. 😦

I’m so attached to it at the moment that I spent three hours looking up bloopers, audition tapes, best moments, etc., just so I can get more of that taste that I long for.

It’s come to a point where I have passed a line … The line of separating myself from the show. I wouldn’t compare it completely to my Harry Potter feelings, but it has a few characteristics of it. I saw Evangeline Lilly (Kate) on a commercial the other day, and I was happy, the kind of happy you get when you see a familiar face amongst strangers.

Don’t worry though, I am not obsessed. (I think) 😛

I should think about my own life now, concentrate on choosing a good topic for my thesis, preparing for my trip, and all these bare necessities.

I would like to make some videos myself of the series… Like my favorite moments, some music videos, etc. But it’s overwhelming to think of searching through 108 episodes that have aired so far … Although last night I had the crazy idea to start watching it again from the beginning …

And let me make something clear to those who haven’t watched it, and who are hesitating.

It’s nothing like “Survivor”, or “Gilligan’s Island”, or any other stranded-island things like this.

What I first loved about the series was that each episode was dedicated more or less to a specific characters, with flashbacks to their past. That made it all the more desirable to feel with the characters, and become close with them, get to know them.

The complexity issue that so many people talk about, ones that don’t watch it… Well if you are watching it on TV, what do you expect?

Watch the episodes in a row from the beginning, on your computer, and then tell me if it’s chaotic and confusing, or not.

Plus what’s fun about a series like “Desperate Housewives”, where nothing exciting, mysterious, or gripping is going on? You can just start at any point and sooner or later you’ll get the picture. That tells me something about the depth of the series, about the thought put into it. Kind of like a soap opera, ain’t it?

Woo, getting sidetracked there.

Back to LOST….

So here are my favourite characters, ones that I crave to watch and watch, in random order:

    > Woo, getting sidetracked there. Back to LOST….

    LoL ! I liked that point particularly because you never got out of the point of LOST in the first place … 😛

    Nice post btw, but I have to say that the series still doesn’t rock my boat … I do not know why, but it just doesn’t …

    I stumbled on an episode when things had gone so whacky that I realized that they were talking about time travel or something like that …

    You can imagine my smirk on that occasion … 😛

    • Well my opinion is that one can’t stumble on an episode on the 5th season and not be confused or be into it… 😛

      On the other hand, you liked Great Teacher Onizuka and I didn’t. 😛

      But on that note, I didn’t watch many episodes, so it goes back to say that:
      a) a few episodes aren’t enough for any show
      b) each person does of course have different tastes

      🙂

    I remember when I watched Lost for the first time. It was some web-tv that streamed all the first season episodes in a row and on the loop. So basically I spent about 18 hours in a row watching every episode! That was a real marathon, because it wasn’t possible to pause it for the breaks, but it didn’t even crossed my mind quit! So I kinda understand your addiction! 🙂
