Ok, so it all started on the 4th of July. My sister brought over the first 3 season of Lost for my dad. (He is always looking for somthing that is entertaining, slightly mindnumbing and that helps him relax.... He's still a work a holic. So it takes something special to get him to sit down and not be accomplishing something.)
Anyway, They started watching LOST. I had to put Reed to sleep so I missed the beginning. (The whole reason why I didn't start watching it when it was on TV was cause I missed the beginning and its not something you can just "jump" into) So every evening possible since, you could stop by or call in the evening and hear the wierd opening "song" or tone really --the sound of someone running a mallet across the gong instead of just banging it. (I was in percussion....) or you might hear "Bad Robot" from either the program or my little sisters going around mimic ing it. Either way, my family is now LOST to LOST.
Well, in all my running in and out of the house, I kept getting drawn into the plot, even as I dont have a clue whats going on. I guess you could say, I was totally LOST... LOL. So I finally grabbed the first season (they are now halfway through the second) and started watching it last night. BAD IDEA. I dont know what time I finally went to bed. I kept saying one more, one more. I have to know whats going to happen next. I don't know what people did when they had to wait a whole week between them.
So here is my philosophical question for the day....
Is it called LOST because the people are all lost on the island? Is it called LOST because you as a viewer are lost most of the time? Or is it called LOST because of all the time you have LOST watching the stupid show!!!!
