tv meme, day 25: a show you plan on watching (old or new)
It’s amazing that a show that went on to become a worldwide phenomenon managed to somehow completely evade me for its six-season run. But alas, other than a smattering of episodes from the first season, I’ve not watched that epic series Lost.
And to think of all the intensely specific coverage the shows gets, from headlines to covers to six-page feature stories in virtually every issue of my favorite entertainment magazines, I’ve managed, for the most part, to avoid hearing about so many plot twists and apparent character deaths. My avoidance of the show was not voluntary. In fact, the reason I didn’t watch it from the beginning was simply that I worked on Wednesday nights. Otherwise, I’m sure I would thoroughly enjoy it. So now that it’s finished, and nearly all on dvd, it’s about time I watch it through. Thanks to the summer blahs, and the fact that the only good shows putting out new episodes right now are Kathy Griffin and True Blood, it’s perfect timing to discover Lost.
