  1. Back when LOST first premiered, they downplayed the fantastical aspects of the show. So my impression was that it was going to be a show about an airliner crash on an unidentified island, and the efforts of the crash survivors to stay alive until rescue or escape. “GILLIGAN’S ISLAND, played straight” was what I thought it was going to be. So I never bothered catching the premiere. It wasn’t until about halfway thru the first season I finally realized it was fantasy, but by then I didn’t feel like expending the effort to catch up. So I never watched the show.

    From what I’ve heard since the show ended, I had a narrow escape.

    • There were a lot of truly fantastic episodes of Lost. Where the series fell down was in failing to tie together all of the episodes into one cohesive narrative. By the last season, there were just too many mysteries and loose ends to tie up satisfactorily.

      If you’re ever curious enough to try a taste, I would recommend the fourteenth episode of Season 3, “Exposé.” It a good example of what Lost is all about, and you don’t need to be a fan to enjoy the ending.
