I swear, every scene in this show is a heart attack. I mean these people they get to act here are putting it all out on the cutting edge in every scene. There is some kind of dire circumstance or covert op happening every frickin second of this show. It is almost like Seinfeld in a way, stay with me on this one, it is a show about nothing that holds your attention like epoxy glue poured on your brain, even in subsequent viewings!
How do you even review the plot, my god, it is the most all over the place mess you cannot imagine, well, someone imagined it. I can't decide if the writers had good drugs or refused to take hallucinogens to keep the story going semi-coherently. Normally I would say that this was not a show for me, about nothing, haha. But, the acting is so fun and tight that you are mesmerized by what is transpiring here or over there. The show is really about the people of LOST and whatever you make of the plot is yours to hypothesize and own and share if you dare.
I came late to the LOST world and glad I came to it. I had other friends that followed it and helped me enter. If you need to have closure at the end of a TV episode, this is not the show for you. Somewhat like X-Files, the plot meanders from week to week and year to year, and maybe has an ending. The journey is the enjoyment here. Where these people are going is immaterial. Another show that seems pertinent to mention here is Fringe. Very similar in many ways. The people and acting are excellent and the plot is craziness.
This is a strike shortened season, so I treated my self to a Blu set of the fourteen episode 4th year. This show was made for Blu Ray. The scenery is the best of any TV show ever. I don't usually use the word spectacular, but the views are. The price was right, and there is always quality used sets available for many of these Amazon purchases. Hey, we need to save where we can. The gov. is gobbling it up faster than I can spend it.
