Is LOST lost?
« on: March 06, 2007, 12:19:01 am »
For those of us who watch LOST, is it losing appeal to you? Why?

Personally, I think LOST is lost. The writing seems to be getting sloppy, and theres still tonnes of dead ends and unsolved mysteries, unexplained shit, and its almost as if the storyline is completely ignoring all of these things and focusing on just a set few people (Jack, Kate, Sawyer, and the Other island). I just wish they'd tie off all those dead ends and push the storyline forwards more!

it lost it's appeal to me a long time ago. I got bored near the beginning of season 2. It's just too drawn out, not much happens any more. It's a shame, it had potential.

As with LionNinja, my interest for the series was lost long ago. Specifically, around halfway into season 2. The series was promising for maybe the first 10 episodes, then got boring, caught up again by the end of season 1, and managed to hold my interest for a some more episodes until I realized they just threw in boring filler through the middle of season 2 as well.

So, yeah, Lost is lost.

Its definently lost. When they aired the trailers and so it seemed damn interesting and exciting. I love the island mysteries and so but then they decided to mix it all with the emo-stories of all the characters. I noticed that a few episodes into season one and then never bothered again.

Starting??

I lost interest in Lost after about 3 or 4 episodes. I think it was the guy in the black suit that appeared behind a bush that did it for me. I saw that and thought, "Oh fuck this for a pint of seawater." It was obvious that it was gonna be overly plot-twist-ridden and before these kinda series became the norm I knew that the way American media worked it would overdo what might've been a good original idea. I'm so glad I never got into it, unfortunately I couldn't save my sister (who has a wallpaper on her laptop of some Lost hunk and a box in which "the numbers" appear. OMG the intrigue!!!)

But oh well, seems like everybody's starting to realise:

Ep11 was pretty good, CC and DL were writing, you can definately tell the difference. Lots of big reveals! :)

My faith is (partially) restored.
