I was upon the impression that my friend was completely insane when she told me she had watched television for four days straight. She had told me she had rented 6 four-hour DVDs at a Blockbuster and that she could not stop watching it. You see...my friend is not a big TV watcher, so when she told me this, I had to ask what in the world she was watching. When she told me it was LOST, the TV series, featuring Domenic Monaghan, I wasn't interested - I thought it was merely some boring soap opera, but, as usual, my first impressions were completely wrong. When she finally convinced me to watch it (after about three weeks, I may add), I was stunned.
You see, I'm not a very big TV watcher, but when I saw the first episode of LOST, I wanted more. Before I knew it, I had watched the second one, and then the third, and then the fourth (not wanting to admit it to my friend)...followed by the next eight. I was so addicted to the seat-binding suspense that I could not stop watching it. The actors are amazing and the plot is just so out-of-this-world fantastic. In each episode you find out a little bit more about each individual character and how they got to be on the plane that crashed, leading them to the mysterious island that they are now stranded on. I'm hoping to rent the last few episodes of Season One and then hopefully find a way to watch Season Two (because I don't think it has come out on DVD yet).
This TV series is to anyone who loves great suspense, mystery, and sheer excitement. Believe me, even if you hate TV series (because, believe me, I did), once you watch LOST you will completely change your mind. This is one TV series that should win any kind of award imaginable - it's awesome, and, most importantly, highly addicting.
