I don’t watch Lost, nor do I ever intend to.
I just don’t get it. I don’t understand why everyone thinks this show is so great. I feel like the kid in Flight of the Navigator – I woke up one day and I was the same, but everyone around me was different.
I mean, it’s a show about people stranded on an island. In present day.
This kind of thing doesn’t happen. People don’t get lost on islands, let alone time-shifting ones that harbor castaways who don’t take their ties off. It just doesn’t happen.
I think, though I might be wrong, that if I got stranded on an island and I was wearing a tie, the first thing I would do (aside from crying like a little girl) is take my damn tie off.
Also, Lost has been done before. It’s a complete rip-off of Gilligan’s Island.
That’s right. Gilligan’s Island. That was the first show about people who got stranded on island and, of course, the hilarious hi-jinks that ensued.
And at least that show was believable because it was set in the 60’s, a time when it was still socially acceptable to eat excessive amounts of acid, rub your naked butt on someone else’s naked butt and think that James Bond movies are “far out.”
But don’t let me stop you from watching Lost.
I’m sure it’s fine in that it doesn’t make you want to gut yourself, but as for me, I think I’ll stick to shows that are more intellectually stimulating.
Like Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
