Lost is a show that has everything Drama, Action, Scifi, Family, Mystery. This show is one of the most confusing and most entertaining shows ever i remember when it started airing i didnt think it would last past 2 seasons not because of the ratings or because it wasnt that good at first but because i thought what can they do on an island for more than 2 seasons but the show proved me wrong and brought much to the table and it didnt disappoint me in any episode it aired and it got better and better and never stopped with the mystery's, i also remember waiting every week for a new episode of Lost and that i was going crazy over the summer with many questions in my mind what will happen next i cant wait for the next season to begin and so on, so for anyone who hasnt watched the show yet watch it because it is so good that you cant stop watching until you finish it all and because you guys are lucky now you have all the episodes on DVD so no need to wait for another episode to air. It has been two years and still i miss this show so much.
On the surface, Lost is a show about a group of people trying to survive on an island after a plane crash. However, after just one episode viewers will see this is no ordinary show. The unique thing about Lost is that the island itself is a character. Viewers quickly learn that this is not a normal island and immediately are hooked into finding out the main question of the show, which is, as Charlie's character asks in season 1, "Where are we?"
The manner in which this question is asked sends a chill down the spine. It is a small example of the simplistic but also complex themes that can be found in Lost. The show is also deeply character based. Each week a little light is shed on a certain character's past. The audience discovers that everyone on the island has a very troubled past, and in turn explains why the characters act the way they do. This creates a deep connection between the characters and the viewers which makes watching an emotional experience. Each episode will give the viewer a couple answers to questions he or she may have been asking, but not without asking even more. This style of episode creation is one of many things that makes Lost one of the most addicting shows in television history. However, there are also flaws in the way the writers try to hook viewers. As I previously stated, each episode raises new questions, which add up as the seasons continue. It would be nearly impossible to answer every question that was brought up, but still a disappointment when viewers find that some major mysteries of the show were never explained.
Some critics of Lost say that the ending did not live up to the rest of the show, and in ways that is true, but not necessarily a bad thing. The show was so great it would be hard to outdo the rest of it in the finale alone. Lost is a show that can make you laugh, cry, and scream all in one episode; it captivates audiences in ways I have not seen before. The thing that made Lost great was not the story, but the way it was told, and because of that, it will live on as a timeless classic many people's minds.
The best show ever! Lost is definitely missed by millions of people. It is by far the best drama that ever aired on tv. The show was full of twists and turns that shocked almost all of its viewers. All of the characters had such personality and star-quality. Emotions were all over the place whenever I watched this show. When someone died, I cried. When someone laughed, I laughed. When someone smiled, I smiled. It was a rollercoaster ride though all six seasons.
