Post Lost is awesome.
I resisted watching it for four years, somehow knowing i would get pulled into it's intractible grip.

Then not long ago i broke down and rented the first season, all the while my wife saying it was going to be stupid. Then we sat and blazed through all 4 seasons strait, laughing maliciously at all those who watched it live and suffered through numerous cliff-hangers.

Next disc! Answers for me, waiting and suspense for you!

Really though, this has proven to be a great series. I am encouraged, having watched this. I hear JJ Abrams will be working to bring Stephen King's Dark tower series to screen in some fashion next. If he applies the skills he practices in Lost, i will have nothing to complain about.

Dark Tower! I can't wait. Erin and I also rented the discs starting on season 1 episode 1. If you want another series, try 24.

I'm currently watching Season 1 of Lost and enjoying it quite a bit. For years I heard about this series and assumed it was some sort of crazy soap opera or that I just wouldn't enjoy it. But I was so wrong.

Last night I finished the 14th episode of Season 1 and am excited to keep moving through them all. For everyone reading this that is interested in watching Lost you should know that this series is 100% free online.

Watch Lost for free online

Click that link and then click the "Watch Free Episodes" in the upper right corner. Then select Season 1, scroll to the bottom to get to the 1st episode, and start watching. I guarantee after the 1st episode you'll be hooked. At least I was.

One of these days I am going to get an Apple TV so that my wife and I can watch YouTube videos and hopefully shows like Lost together on our downstairs television.

I am painfully addicted to Lost. When the first series was out on TV I would come home on a Wednesday night, grab my tea, run up to my room and refuse to speak to anyone until the episode was over. (I should probably point out that this is the only TV programme I do this with - I'm not a recluse!)

I can't wait till I can get my hands on series 5!

After intentionally ignoring the show for years my daughter got me watching. I must confess, I like it! I am now actually looking forward to the new season; it starts in January 2010.

Hey, Gem -- I grab a cup of tea too and I'm in the USA!

The central mystery of "Lost": How did Hurley manage to remain burly for all those months of hardship on the Island? :?

Post Lost is awesome.
They are always finding cache's of food on the island. That's how Hurley stays burley.

First the hatch was full of food, then the air-lift parcels, then the time travel to a well stocked kitchen for the Dharma initiative.

Lost is good.

I'm still ignoring Lost. Should I reconsider?

Post Re: Lost is awesome.
Geo, you really should just give it a shot. I think you'll absolutely love this series. I watched all 5 seasons in a matter of maybe 30 days. Like johnson1010 said it is so much more enjoyable to watch Lost (and everything else for that matter) without commercial interruptions and week-long waits. I genuinely feel like I am friends with the Lost crew. In a weird way I have always wanted to be stranded on a deserted island and this series allows me to go into my own little fantasy world. 8)

The new season is coming in January I believe. I am tempted to watch the entire first 5 seasons again in preparation. :hmm:

Thanks Chris. I think we will watch it. It sounds like we should just have all five seasons on hand so that we can fly through it. Checking half.com . . .

Just wanted you to know that LOST has been on for quite a while in Germany (dubbed exceedingly well.....Germans are masters at that) and the Legend of the Seeker just started 3 weeks ago. I'm hooked.

Post Re: Lost is awesome.
The missus and I watched episode 1 last night on abc.com. I was enthralled, but she has reservations about it. Either way, neither of us are very enthused about watching TV on my computer. I'll spring for the season on DVD on half.com and sell it when I'm done.

I liked the way the show unfolds. It seems this island is a bit like the Island of Dr. Moreau. Very interesting . . .
