Any other Lost fans?

We rarely get into TV dramas but I saw an episode on ABC.com last year which lead the wife and I to watching all the Seasons.

Very cool show. Lots of religious and philosophical overtures. Can't wait for the final season this year.

You should give it a try if you have Netflix or stream from your laptop to computer. It's a great show and this coming from someone who hates 99.99% of television shows.

I prefer to watch PBS, myself. Never understood why Lost has such a huge following though. Tried to watch it a few times, and just couldnt stand it.

Dean, I watched an episode of Lost several years ago when it first started and never got hooked. I am aware of the show, however, and have always wondered if they explain to the viewers how a modern jetliner can go down in this modern world and never be found. Considering satellites and the fact there are no more uninhabited tropical islands or areas on the globe that do not get regular ocean traffic or airplane pass overs. Without some kind of reason for their not being found I simply can't get invested. I know it's just a TV show. But do they try to explain it to viewers?

In a way they explain it but it's complicated. The island can only be accessed by a narrow slot. It has a lot to do with space time bending and physics due to an energy source the island harbors.

They do find the plane crash but it's a staged plane so the World is satisfied.

Sometimes you have to suspend reality and go with it. That's what I've been told any how.

Okay, so they did go into space/time, wormhole, alternate universe stuff to pull it off. I can go with that. Happens all the time. I read all the posts on this forum.

Space/time, physics, energy has been a major part of it from the start. Wasen't like a surprise twist to cover the bases. I don't know how it's going to end but lots of Biblical and Buddhist references throughout the plot. I noticed the promo for the final season shows the characters posed like the Last Supper.

yeah, we got sucked in during season one.

Snatch was a great movie, courtesy of Madonna's ex-wife.
if you liked snatch, watch revolver and layer cake if you haven't seen those. lock stock and two smoking barrels is great as well.

But it does. Just not here. What do you watch Ian?
I have a cable connection that allows just about all the US programs along with our UK broadcasts. My favorite UK show is "Globe Trekker" the travel program. Ian Wright hosts some episodes and he strikes me as funny.

I love reruns of Seinfeld and Westerns with Clint Eastwood. The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, along with the Outlaw Josey Wales are favorites.
