"Bull", meaning nonsense, dates from the 17th century, while the term "bullshit" has been used as early as 1915 in American slang, and came into popular usage only during World War II. The word "bull" itself may have derived from the Old French boul meaning "fraud, deceit" (Oxford English 2] The term "horseshit" is a near synonym. The South African English equivalent is "bull dust". Few corresponding terms exist in other languages; one prominent example, however, is German Bockmist, literally "billy-goat shit".
The earliest attestation mentioned by the Concise Oxford English Dictionary is in fact T. S. Eliot, who between 1910 and 1916 wrote an early poem to which he gave the title "The Triumph of Bullshit", written in the form of a ballade. The word bullshit does not appear in the text of the poem. Eliot did not publish this poem during his 3]
As to earlier etymology the OED cites bull with the meaning "trivial, insincere, untruthful talk or writing, nonsense". It describes this usage as being of unknown origin, but notes the following: "OF boul, boule, bole fraud, deceit, trickery; mod. Icel bull 'nonsense'; also ME bull BUL 'falsehood', and BULL verb, to befool, mock, 
Although as the above makes clear there is no confirmed etymological connection, it might be noted that these older meanings are synonymous with the modern expression "bull" otherwise generally considered, and intentionally used as, a contraction of "bullshit".
Another theory, according to the lexicographer Eric Partridge, is that the term was popularised by the Australian and New Zealand troops from about 1916 arriving at the front during World War I. They were astonished at the British commanding officers' emphasis on bull. Bull was the term for attention to appearances - spit and polish, making everything just so, even when it was a hindrance to waging war. The Diggers ridiculed the British by calling it not bull but 5]

Search Alex Bruno, and ... " Aye" sorry for my english, All the best!!!
There is no other show quite like Lost, Yes Lost has a little bit of every movie or TV show you have ever watched but it is uniquely put together that it stands alone in a genre of complete EPIC story telling.
Lost however is not for everyone as some people don't like to use what god gave BRAIN.
Lost is for the observant, The intelligent, the open minded, Its a mystery wrapped inside a drama, coated with action, added to a bit of horror, comedy, Sci fi, and romance.
Lost is THE GREATEST TV SERIES OF ALL TIME, Hands down. "See ya in another life brotha".
Starts out pretty good for about the first season and I held on to the last episode of last season. Give me my lost hours back, no pun intended. :-( The title says it all.
And all the reviews with the rating 10 must be the actors/directors or someone responsible for this horrible mess. Makes me angry how people want to fool others into watching this. That's just mean and evil.
Lost is without doubt the greatest TV series of all time. There has never been a TV series with such depth, Both in character development and mythological intrigue, This show has everything you could wish for. Don't be fooled by the vocal minority that simply didn't understand this complex journey, Lost was more than a TV show, It was a cerebral orgasm.
A brilliant show, a great cast and a thriller of a story with a supernatural element... I just went crazy watching the first two seasons and it just made me sit up and respect the brilliance in screenplay writing season after season until the writers ran out of ideas and completely fizzled out in Season 6. But still there will never ever be a series that was watched with such great interest in the past decade! A great show... Wish it had a killer of an ending than the one we had... Still one of the best TV shows with fans from across the world! :)
A show that can offer question after question with very few answers and still remain utterly engrossing is something special. The show has a huge cast, expanding as the show progresses, all of whom are very interesting due to the characters all being fleshed out through flashbacks, not to mention the mind boggling things that happen on the island. Mystery, intrigue, suspense, action, drama. The amalgamation of these ingredients make for one of the best shows ever made. It's wonderful how everything fits together as the show goes on, keeping you guessing and thinking all the way.
The enjoyment of the show comes from the journey not the ending, and what a journey it is. 10/10.
The thing i loved about Lost is how I could never guess what was going to happen next. I mean, it was so unpredictable! One moment you think you have it figured out and then BANG something totally unexpected happens throwing you off again!
"Lost" was an incredible experience. One hell of a show that had episodes which ended with it's obsessed viewers saying "WTF" because of its WTF moments. I loved every moment of it because there was never a second where I knew or had a feeling I knew what was happening or knew what would happen. In its six awesome seasons, we were left with a few unanswered questions and even more to question yet engrossed by the richness of this close to biblical referenced tale.
This is all great television writing and from the creation by the very smart J. J. Abrams. Who makes "Lost" his signature piece. It's dominating first season earned its Emmy and Golden Globe. In which we witness one of the most horrific plane crashes ever watched of Oceanic Air Flight 815. The surviving crew members become that of the examples of the bible and passengers of the faith and an Island of deeper grounds and secrets that reveal a more greater meaning.
Matthew Fox is the surgeon Jack Shepard and he leads the surviving group of passengers with Evangeline Lilly's Kate Austen and the ruthless James Sawyer played by Josh Holloway. All throughout we are taken back into these people's lives, their pasts and the troubles they've wished they'd never bargained for and the losses they've came cross to. Jorge Garcia's Hurley has the humorous of the pasts and Terry O'Quinn's John Locke had the more intriguing.
There are many elements to look through in Lost. In the views of The Others and the timeline within the past and future. The roles of Desmond (Henry Ian Cusack) and Juliet (Elizabeth Mitchel) and the actions committed by Benjamin Linus (Michael Emerson) and Sayid (Naveen Andrews).
From the many deaths in Lost, the most I felt sympathy for in their parts of the series were for John Locke, Charlie Pace (Dominic Monaghuan), Jin & Sun (Daniel and Yujien Kim) and Michael Dawson (Harold Perrineu). They did what they did because of their nature and because of their scars that never seemed to escape, the roles they took and the redemptions they tried to reach. Yes, I did feel something for Jack of course, who has learned so much and given so much throughout his destined journey.
And from the performances of Fox, O'Quinn and Emerson do we have a complete saga that never failed to approach its ambition. In the end, when we see them all in the Church (the passengers, now in the after life they were destined to connect to) we simply accept it all and don't question the rest. And we are happy for them all.
It's difficult to decide on my favourite season of Lost; watching them concurrently, with the exception of the third, each seemed to get better and better. The introduction of the hatch, the flash forwards and the time travelling was superb and kept the show feeling fresh and progressive. For me, the peak was seasons four and five, which was often nothing short of astonishing television
Sadly, it transpired that the writers had bitten off more than they could chew. Where the sixth season should have provided insight and resolution, it actually introduced unnecessary new characters and inconsequential plotlines, so that the moments every Lost fan had been waiting for were either rushed in a completely unsatisfying manner, or just didn't happen at all. Key characters were just disposed of (Widmore, who had been built up as crucial to the show was simply shot) and the Jacob's 'powers' were explained by some daft 'magic potion' nonsense. It was a slap in the face to everyone who'd faithfully given it their time. The final 'twist' made very little sense within the context of the show until that point, and rendered much of what we'd enjoyed watching inconsequential.
Terrible final season aside, this is well worth anyone's time, for the show at its peak is incredible. One day I'll go back and watch it all again, but for now what feels like a betrayal by the writers still stings.
One of the best tv series ever. Exiting, adventures, and always has a twist. In lost you get to know the characters very well and understand them. I re watched this show already and I would re watch it again. Amazing show 10/10
Some of the characters were quite likeable, and most of the series had me looking forward to the next episode. I began to get a little exasperated by the plot twists and the fact that there were always more questions being created than answered. The ending does pretty much tie it all up, but in a very unsatisfying manner. Overall I'd say I wasted a lot of time watching this series.
One of the best shows I've ever seen.. I definitely recomend checking it out in entirety. It's awesome watching the characters grow and change from start to finish.. I am sure ill be upset when I'm done watching it. I'm on season5 right now. In the first couple seasons I was a little bit annoyed with all of the character flash backs but the writers did a pretty good job of tying everything together. There are questions that arose in the 1st season that have still not been answered but I keep watching hoping the next episode will explain it.. Definitely a lot to take in, I think I could re watch the entire series to tie up the loose ends. 9.5 so far.. Definitely
The first season of this show is really, in essence what the entire show is about - or should be about. The first season is the best because it delves deep into the characters' psyches and intelligently develops not only character-to-character relationships but character-to-island (or setting) relationships. I feel like as the show progressed it became more about power struggles and less about the philosophical and mystical aspects of the characters and the island. It's a gradual decline, I think, from season to season, as the show begins to rely more and more on twists and action, rather than the subtle mystery and intrigue of the first season. Still, Lost is one of the greatest and most fascinating shows I've ever seen.
Lost is easily one of the most memorable tv shows of all time, TV classics. Its highly creative plot and engaging characters makes it one of (in my opinion) best shows of all time.
The first 2 seasons of lost are iconic, tv gold, however that was because that was all the producers were expecting to do with the show, however as the fan base grew, so did their desire for more seasons, season 3 was also highly successful in my eyes. It was only around season 5/6 where the lack of plot became evident as things were becoming more confusing and less explained, however, for me lost was always about the characters not the story.
however this show is still a tv must watch, highly recommend it!
Yes, it had its minor flaws, but Lost won in every way possible - the setting of the show, the plot twists, everything about it made it wonderful. The best part of the show for me was its characters. Each character had a great story that was developed masterfully - the conflicts, the relationships, everything about the characters made this show worth watching. I cried multiple times throughout the series. It's one I'll never forget. Juliet, Sun, and Jin were my favorites.
It's the best series i ever seen, You must see to believe. It have all you want: Drama, Sci-fi, Aventure, Thriller and more. I'm wonder how and from were come the ideea because who wrote this screenplay is touch by some magic. And the cast for this series it was pick very good, all the actors are very talented people who played in many others series or movies. So my advise for all the people who wants to see something different and really excitind, Don't lose any of these episodes and if you dont't like it, change the channel. It's very simple!
Bye! and be LOST in this aventure.
