    I'm looking for tv shows similar to Lost.


    I've seen Flashforward (the season 2 premiere made me fall asleep) and V.


    Are there any others that are kind of like Lost (of course they'll probably not be as awesome as Lost, but as close as possible)?
    What about Fringe? Or Twin Peaks, is that worth downloading?

    fringe is from the same creator of lost. its verry good but, there are some episodes that dont seem to have anything to do with the story. they do connect with each other in the end thou.

    The closest thing to Lost I can think of was not a serial, but an anthology type show showcasing sci-fi and the paranormal, called the Twilight Zone. The Outer Limts falls in there too, Night Gallery too, only not so much

    flashforward has a little bit the aura of lost.. but is far atm.. the pilot was quite similar in a way... i hope it doesn't get canceled, it has potential..

    I would DEFINITELY suggest ALIAS. It's by the same writers as LOST. I was a huge fan of Alias before Lost came out, and when I saw that JJ Abrams was coming out with a new show, thats when I got excited about Lost. Alias lasted for five years, and I have still yet to come to a conclusion as to what show I like better of the two. Maybe when Lost is over I will have a better picture. So please try out Alias, and let me know what you think.

    Alias was good, but it fell apart in the last few seasons.

    FlashForward is OK. A bit slow these days.

    I can't recommend Alias highly enough. Sure it kinda jumped the shark towards the end but it was pretty fantastic and fun the entire way. There's a reason why I use Sydney Bristow as my avatar.

    I'd say check out Prison Break, That is an amazing show with lots of twists and turns. Just when you think you figured it out, BAM a new direction.

    I watched a a few episodes, the first three or four I think,of Prison Break. I didn't hate it, but I didn't find it intriguing either. Might give it another try though

    I would suggested Twin Peaks. It is a little dated, but it has a similar feel to Lost, a great mythology, interesting characters, weird connections, etc.

    Fringe is good. Very underrated, but it has good characters (Walter Bishop)and good mythology. Battlestar Galactica is probably the closest thing to Lost. In an interview I heard Damon Lindelof I think say that BSG was one of the best shows of the last decade.

    Definitely fringe. Not in plot, but in style. They have the same creator.

    I second the recommendation for Prison Break, at least for the first two seasons, because then it went downhill after that, but i still enjoyed seasons 3 and 4
