I am the only person on earth who is still watching ABC’s Lost. During tonight’s show I’m pretty sure New York Governor David Patterson walked through a shot. I used to know people who would hold parties to watch the show. Now I’m confused why I wasted space on Tivo for it.
This show reminds me of a college romance; it starts out with wild sex in the library and ends with you moving to Guatemala for the Peace Corps and her moving to Chicago to work for an pharmaceutical company, maybe you check up on each other on Facebook once every six months and then nine years later you bump into each other at a Chili’s and you’re pushing a baby stroller and she’s holding hands with a guy who is a foot shorter than you and has an earring; all you can think is, “What were we thinking?” Then you remember the first date and how flexible you used to be.
Honestly, I get the feeling the writers of Lost go online before busting out a script and pick up ideas from the fan sites. That’s not a joke. The creators of this series once denied the plot would have anything to do with time travel and now that’s all anyone does. Flash of white light. The character of Ben, played by Michael Emerson was supposed to have a small part in the show. In 2007 he gets nominated for an Emmy.
The producers claim they know how the series is going to end, but I get the feeling they don’t know how it started. Not to mention ABC is dumping money into reviving the show like this is Obama’s presidential campaign. Hello, it’s a recession. Lost is very expensive to make according to my sources… Wikipedia… so I understand why ABC is frightened, but it has been rudderless for years now. You just can’t go back to your first French kiss at a bowling alley and you can’t go back to the island.
