Below is the one and only post I've ever written about Lost. I thought that since it's pretty much as true today as it's ever been I'd use it as a repost. I will add however that tonight I did actually sit down and watch the finale with the Dr. In the end I'm more thankful than ever I didn't watch the show because frankly had that been a show I was into the ending would have pissed me off. Six season about a mysterious island only to be told in the end it's not about the island? None of the mysteries really solved? It's only about the people? In my opinion #fail. Glad it only every 2 hours of my time.
The Dr. is a huge fan of Lost. I am not. I took one look at the pre-release commercials and declared that I had enough questions left unanswered with the original Gilligan's Island and did not need more heaped on by a J J Abrams remake.
So he records it and watches it later. Later meaning when I'm busy doing something else. But over the years I've wandered through the room enough to have some grasp, albeit probably somewhat incorrect, of the story line.
Here is what I do to amuse myself while he is minding his own business desperately trying to enjoy his show. I wander in and out and ask annoying questions.
Me: "Isn't she/he supposed to be dead?"
Him: "It's a flashback" (blood pressure rises)
Me: "Why are some people off the island and other's aren't?"
Him: "It's the future." (hair stands on end – huffs in my general direction)
Me: "How far in the future because that baby doesn't look any bigger than it was on the island. Babies grow fast."
Him: "Shut up"
Me: "I thought she/he was killed on the Island, now she's in the future? "
Him: "It's the past again!!" Poof his head explodes
THIS is far more entertaining to me than the show ever could be.
