Show Summary

After Oceanic Air Flight 815 tears apart in mid-air and crashes on a Pacific island on September 22nd 2004, its survivors are forced to find inner strength they never knew they had in order to survive. But they discover that the island holds many secrets, including a mysterious smoke monster, polar bears, housing with electricity and hot & cold running water, a group of island residents known as "The Others," and a mysterious man named Jacob. The survivors also find signs of those who came to the island before them, including a 19th century sailing ship called The Black Rock and the ruins of an ancient statue, as well as bunkers belonging to the DHARMA Initiative -- a group of scientific researchers who inhabited the island in the recent past. Lost has won a Golden Globe, 10 Saturn Awards and 10 Emmy Awards.

  • Most clever writers ever

    10
    The most clever thing these writers ever did was to write a show that is clearly about Purgatory, yet convince all of their fans that the show wasn't about Purgatory.
  • SIMPLY THE BEST

    LOST is simply the greatest tv series of all time, Why? Well, I could say its because of the incredibly brilliant characters, flawlessly written and acted, Or I could say its because of the massively intriguing story, Or I could tell you about its geniusly unique non linear story telling technique, Or maybe even about the fact that LOST is more than what you see on screen, Lost asks the questions other shows are afraid to ask, Who are we? Why do we do what we do? What is our purpose? The truth is LOST is the greatest tv series of all time for so many reasons, ignore the naysayers that most likely misunderstood the shows complexity, make your own mind up.moreless
  • This is probably the most complicated show you'll ever see.

    8.0
    If you're not prepared for the strenuous task that is watching this 117-episode mystery, then save yourself the trouble and don't even view the Pilot (part one or two). Honestly, the show's quirky mysteriousness gets old around season four or five when you realize that the pieces of the puzzle will never quite fit together and that for every answer the show provides each season, it asks five more questions. In the same way that many survivors of Oceanic 815 gave up hope of rescue, you eventually give up hope that Lost will come to a reasonable conclusion.

    Still, you must commend the writers for the interesting characters they've created. Almost every season introduces a new faction to what was supposed to be a deserted island, and no matter how new the characters are, their back stories and roles compel you to care about them (except for season three's Nikki and Paulo who were dropped into the show and therefore despised).

    Yet, there is a downside to having an ensemble show with an ever-expanding cast: there is always a shifting focus. While episode two of a given season may focus on your favorite character, you may have to wait another seven to twelve episodes before your character becomes the focus again, which is also the reason why some storylines take forever to complete.

    One storyline that never goes away (until "The End") is the Jack-Kate-Sawyer-Juliet love quadrangle that effectively denies the two couples from developing meaningful relationships that aren't tainted by suspicion and jealousy.

    And, after suffering through those exasperating elements, if you manage to make it to the finale, you'll still be bawling like a newborn. Although the show begins to drain your life force after its fourth season, it provides a somewhat satisfying end to it all, so that you're more than ready to let go and move on.

  • The best show ever

    10
    The show lost is one of the best shows i have ever watched. At first, I thought that the show was going to be dumb and stupid, but it is amazing and made me so emotional. To this day I still get emotional when discussing lost with fellow colleagues because I grew emotionally attached to each character. Watching all 120 episodes in the summer, in a short period of time made me have no life. But it was the best life because all i did was watch Lost. The first season struck me because i thought it was dumb because it was about a plane crash, But once Ethan came and kidnapped Claire, it began to be bizarre and scared me into knowing more about the show. The noise effects, the music, lights, costumes, plot, design just about everything in this story made it whole and fascinating. The way each character was explained in separate episodes made the story more intriguing and interesting. The episodes also had famous actors in it which made the show more interesting. Although I hated Benjamin at first, I grew to love him even though he murdered people. At the end, I did cry including throughout the story, Great show!!! Best show ever!!!!!! Wish they would have continued. The only thing I wish was changed is the ending. The ending should have been explained in more detail. But overall, i am emotional just typing this!!moreless
  • NCIS REVIEWS 3/8/2014 TO 4/11/2014

    5.5
    REVIEW FOR 4/11/2014 EPISODE: This week's review is short and sour. The plot was OK, but the 6+ minutes that Bishop was in the scenes was 6+ minutes of dead time. I seem the show has gotten softer since the Bishop arrival. Maybe that is intentional because her character is soft and unreliable. Only time will tell if management get their heads on straight and does the replacement act. REVIEW FOR 4/4/2014 EPISODE: This review is for the 4/1/2014 NCIS telecast. Overall I would give the double episodes a B+. One of the key reasons was the introduction o Brody. She is what the viewers of NCIS should have gotten when Ziva left. When NCIS went to New Orleans, Bishop should have been left in Washington DC in the wings. The 6 minutes the Bishops character was shown were the 6 minutes that I made my snack. Maybe if NCIS ORLEANS gets going, the ladies will be switched. That may be the only thing that will save NCIS. REVIEW FOR 3/25/2014 EPISODE: AH, another Bishop sighting. But, at lass, it was only about 7 minutes in length. And, a good comment about her came from the new strong character, agent Brody (Zoe McLellan) when Bishop was looking for a clean place on the floor to sit, Brody utter ERR, a good description of Bishops character, Marie Anne St. Jean. It's too bad that Brody has come on the scene this late this year. She would have been the perfect fit to replace Ziva. I guess the producer didn't do his research well enough for this replacement. Maybe Brody will get a transfer to DC. Here's hoping so. REVIEW FOR 3/18/2014 EPISODE: AH LASS, another NCIS downer. Starts out with a smart mouth crack regarding Denozzo's fathers wedding. Then it continues on with the Bishop continuing to display her substandard character efforts. And it looks like Bishops character is rubbing off on Denozzo and Jimmy. They both need a slap to get them back in the show. The show has gone into a hole. Ever since Ziva's departure, the sharpness of the agents is gone and their are more like baby sitters. The one scene where Bishop stopped to man was totally wrong. He would have never gotten close to the door. Bishop got him after he reached the door. Then she had the mooch gun out. Then came her "Got you Babe". What the "H" was that. Theirs a saying, you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink. For the Bishop character, you can give an actress a script, but you can't get her to act. Too bad because NCIS has been a top notch series for years. Maybe enough is enough. REVIEW FOR 3/12/2014 EPISODE: Last night, Tuesday, was a great time to watch NCIS. Without Ziva, the crew worked as they had done for year. Polygraph lady was in the episode trying to become an investigator, but she knows her place. Proper standing and responding to the scenes as they developed. This was a great break to what we have seen over the past few NEW episodes. FOOT NOTE ON THE CHARACTER CHANGE. Replacing Ziva or even Kate's memory with Bishop was like taking a late French chromatic color felis onca detecting and giving him a triple number British Spy position. I just wouldn't work!moreless
