lost on lost

I hope I don't upset a lot of you with this post---but, I can't wait for "Lost" to be over. I don't recall there being so much hype on an ending of a television series, ever. Even "The Soprano's" didn't get this kind of press/print material/TV coverage....One magazine that I receive by 'default', (I have not figured out why I get it. The only thing I can think of is that it replaced another magazine that died.....) devoted almost their entire recent issue to this series and it's coming end, etc., etc., etc.......Enough already! It's just all too much.And here is the thing: I don't get it. I truly do not get what this show is all about. And I don't care about any of these people who, may or may not be 'real'. Back in it's first year, I had to watch a few episodes because of The Emmy's....I was very impressed! And I became a fan...kind of. Till.....till it began to go off the rails, for me. I honestly could not follow what was going on after a rather short while. And, in fact, I had a similar problem with another one of J. J. Abrams shows, "Alias". It too became, for me, unwatchable after a while because I just could not follow the storyline. I openly admit I have never been a Sci-Fi person. It's just not my cup of tea. But, "Lost" didn't seem like a Sci-Fi series in the beginning---at least, not in the first few episodes of that first season."Alias" didn't seem like that to me either, in the first season....But, as the season's went on I began not to be able to follow it, and it made me angry and I lost interest, completely. And even my friend Ron Rifkin being on "Alias" couldn't keep me watching it after a while. But with "Lost" it was 10 times worse for me. And frankly, I just never got the appeal of all the different time periods and the other-worldly strangeness and never being able to figure out who anybody really is or what they were/are doing with each other and to each other.....So, forgive me. I'm sorry, but I truly cannot wait for this show to be gone. No, I don't watch it at all and haven't for a long long time and only watch it at Emmy time, each year, because that is part of my commitment. But, if I read one more story about this show---you will hear heavy-duty screaming, wherever you are---even across the pond....And those screams will be coming out of me.

So "Lost", please, please, please....get lost!
More To Come.......

I will admit that I have never seen an episode of Lost. And am proud of that. I sometimes wonder what I've been missing, but not enough to make me waste my time.

Unfortunately, I think the authors tried to do too much. Better to pare the story down a bit, I think.

As for me, I fell off the Lost bandwagon several seasons ago.

My daughters are fans, so I hear bit and pieces. #2 daughter thinks they will end with a cliff hanger and no one will ever really know what the heck happened.

Hi Naomi,
Did you believe that I never saw one single chapter of Lost? It did not attract me at all... The only serie I see every week is Brother & Sistes, and I love this serie!

Got an error on my first two comments this AM, will try again.
I quit watching last year but when they promised this was the last season, I just had to see how they could possible tie all the loose ends together.
If this is another "dream season" like "Dallas" or some kind of coma crap, the writers need to seek the witness protection program.
I agree Naomi, lets end this mess.

I am a lost devotee, and I think the back story from JJ will be revealed one day. Off topic, but people are saying Lena had MS?? What do you know of that?

I agree with you about Lost. I gave up on it 2-3 years ago; I couldn't follow it anymore and it felt like the writers were grabbing at straws. I loved Alias, though and wish it would come back.

I gave up this season, would you believe that! I hung in there all those seasons of up and down absurdity and then gave up in the final season
I just decided that watching TV wasn't supposed to be work
and it wasn't supposed to be frustrating

the writers of Lost got so lost

you are forgiven Naomi! lol
Heck, I AM a sci fi fan and the first season and even the second season I loved!... then.. I got lost myself! lol.. so I stopped watching it altogether. so.. you are not alone!!! even some of us sci fi/ fantasy fans got lost a long time ago!

Interesting perspective. It never occurred to me that maybe one should be a sci-fi fan to really enjoy it. I myself love anything to do with time travel and alternate realities and of course I am a huge sci-fi fan. Sometimes I don't know exactly what is going on, I just enjoy the ride. Hey, at least it's scripted television, I'm sure you appreciate at least that aspect of it.

I understand your frustration. I started out watching it during the first season, and then in either Season 2 or 3, something different was going on with the writing and it just wasn't a good show any more. Then they got back on track and I've started watching it again, but I am not as devoted as I once was. Also, all these silly hiatus breaks in the show only make the audience lose interest. In those 4, 6, 8 weeks that they go away, I find other things to do, so when they finally come back, sorry, I'm busy. Just run the dang show all the way through a full, regular season and quit chopping them up and going away and coming back repeatedly. I hate that!

I stopped watching during Season 2. It just lacked a coherent storyline for me and didn't seem to be going anywhere. It's a shame as I loved Season 1 adn it was quite bold in how it addressed the scenario and the characters in many ways.

Hi Naomi, just checking in. How are you? Any way I feel the same way about Lost, I dislike shows that you have to see every week, to have a clue as to the story line. And also agree regarding Alias, liked the show, but keep missing bits and pcs. One thing regarding my taste, I truly like Sci-Fi, not blood and gore, but something that can almost be real and scare the panties off a person.
The last Sci-Fi, that I enjoyed they took off air was Jerrico.

I must be the only person in the world who has not seen this show. Hope you are well and that was a great post as usual Naomi. It is incredible these TV shows get the media coverage and community adoration that they do.

I'm with you on this Naomi. I watched the first few episodes and then sort of lost the plot and the will to live:)

Hey there, Naomi. Sorry I've been such a stranger of late. Life's been more than a little nutty. Thankfully things seem to be slowly evening out, so hopefully I'll get back to a more regular blogging life before long.

In the meantime, I agree with every word you've said here. I've never "gotten" the whole premise of Lost. While there may have been some merit to the lost-on-a-desert-island-after-a-plane-crash thing, what the writers and producers did with the story line as the show aged bordered on near-farce.

It's another sign of the degradation of television as an artistic medium, and it saddens me.

Never been a fan of it, I think I watched it once or twice and that was it.

I've been watching LOST since the beginning. I'm a fan, and I admit I'll be glad when it is over. It has had some of the strangest story lines ever, but I've been hooked all along. I was hooked on Alias too, so I guess I'm a sucker for Sci Fi. I was a huge Battlestar Gallactica fan too, so that tells you that I'm pretty much OUT THERE!
:-) Just had to stop by and see what was up.
I've gotten hooked on a new show called Parenthood that is based on one of my favorite movies by the same title.
I hope you enjoy a nice weekend.

I was intrigued with the first season but after that things got too far fetched and I couldn't even follow the show. I'm indifferent about it now, but I wouldn't watch it (not even to see how it ends) because I'd be completely lost if I did.

I so agree with your sentiments! Lost is really lost. I saw the first season and it was kindof interesting until every episode have more questions than answers.

My 20 yr old son and I have a standing "date" night for Lost. It's funny to hear him tell his friends, "Yo, I'm watchng LOST with my mom and then I*'ll come over to watch the game". I'll miss LOST and the time spent with my son, but I have to tell you that this year is confusing the hell out of both of us!

I was a big Lost fan for the few few seasons - but then I missed a few episodes and got awfully confused in what was happening....blah blah blah.

I think it is one of those shows that you have to watch every. single. episode to understand fully what is going on.

I watched a few of the first series but I'm afraid I kind of 'Lost' interest. Oops.
