"Lost" - Channel 4 UK

Thu Aug 11, 2005 5:41 am

Is anyone else watching this? Pretty decent so far, but still wondering what the mystery "beast" is.
My guess is it's something stupid like a Dinosaur or Godzilla  crazy 

What do you think of it, if you are watching it?
P.S No spoilers please Americans  Wink

It sounds like a good idea and I thought I would like it. First few episodes are ok. But you will soon realize that nothing significant happens in the first 8 or so episodes, aside from the crash. It bored the hell out of me and I just stop caring (and watching). So here's my best attempt at a spoiler (from the episodes I've seen): prepare yourself for the same. Although there seemed to be more of them walking around the island after the 4th episode. Don't get too excited.

I missed most of the first part. No doubt it will be repeated on E4.

Aren't they making a second series now?

First thoughts were that it was quite good, but I'm struggling to see how they can stretch it out for, what is it, 26 episodes? Then 26 more? Hmm.

I enjoyed it and can't wait for the second season to start.

Every TV in the ICU had to be tuned to LOST, every Wednesday!

All your questions won't be answered, but it's a fun (if exasperating) ride!

Seen the third episode on E4 at 10:50 after the first 2 episodes on Channel 4.
Of course, I kept flicking over to "Cathouse" on Channel 5 - something to do with a Legal Brothel in America  Wink

Bugger that. I made that mistake with the first series of 24 where they always showed the next episode on BBC3. What happened when it got to the last one? They left it two weeks till BBC2 caught up. The gits.

26 episodes -REALLY ? Crikey - how are they going to make it last that long ??

I rather enjoyed it though - and its got me hooked for more. Although it definitely surprised me when the woman turned out to have been the one in cuffs.....

And a second series. So make that 52. If the writers can make it stand up over that length of time and still keep it interesting and not contrived, I'll doff my cap to them on a job very well done.

So we could be watching it for a whole year  Wow!

Which kind of suggests that nothing gets resolved and they don't get rescued at the end of this one - unless of course they start a completely different unrelated story in the second series - which would be a bit pointless.

Incidentally - tried booking on the airline's website ??

You've answered your own question. It's intensely character-driven, and the backstories are very detailed and tightly written.

Not alot happens in the first couple, but it gets very interesting.

season ending in Brasil, still haven´t seen the beast. But the show is quite interesting, but I think too much drama...
