Part of my 101 Things in 1001 Days challenge.

(A big thank you to Josh Holloway for making this task so easy to complete!)

So. Halfway through November 2007 I had never seen a single episode of Lost. I’m not much of a TV person anyway, but I’m sure it didn’t help that when the show began I was working afternoons and nights. By the time I realised that it was a popular show, and that all the praise was really justified, I guess I felt like I’d missed the boat.

As the writers’ strike dragged on and on, Tim decided it would be a good time to catch me up on what I had missed. I never (ever!) expected that I would be able to watch 71 episodes of anything in 6 weeks – but we did! It was especially easy to watch the show on Blu-Ray, since hitting the pause button gave such incredible detail. There were a few times when we were able to spot a clue that would have told us nothing in standard definition.

We had a number of marathons that began over dinner and ran until after midnight. To be honest, now that I’m all caught up I’m looking forward to eating at our table again! Not to mention sleeping through the night without the crazy, all-consuming Lost-related dreams that have been breaking my brain. I’m expecting more of that tonight, but then I should be ok again.

So now I have to wait a few weeks to see what happens next, but at least it’s not the months that normal viewers have had to endure. I have a few ideas at this point, but first I’m looking forward to reading the massive amount of online material that I’ve been hiding from. Until tonight, I’ve had to get Tim to check Lostpedia for the answers to my questions so that I didn’t accidentally encounter spoilers.

I know, I know – I’m the last kid to show up at the party. But this was a fairly time-consuming project for me, so it’s nice to be able to check off another item on my list.

Doesn’t that first episode just grab you, and hang on pretty much through the entire season? I loved the first season of this show.

And I saw the second.

But I never got past that. Ive never been very good at following a show on TV. I’ve decided Im a DVD series gal. But since Im also a CHEAP gal.. this poses a problem of seeing every show out there. I just can’t justify buying something as an entire season, until I know it something Ill watch again and again. So Im relegated to what the video store has in stock. And Im still holding out for season three. *nods*

Enjoy your ‘Lost Dreams’

I think I must be the only person on earth who doesn’t like Lost!

I love LOST! Hubby and I have been watching it from the very first episode. I can hardly wait for the next season to start. I read an interview with Dr. Jack recently, and he promises that some of the big questions are going to be answered in the upcoming episodes. Stuff we’ve been wondering about the island since the beginning. yippee!
