This is my ALL TIME favorite thing. In less than 2 weeks, my unhealthy, uncontrollable and dysfunctional obsession with LOST will start again. Yes I am SO addicted- Action, Adventure, Romance, Drama, Mystery, Comedy, Spirituality, Horror, Science AND Science Fiction - all rolled into one. Lost started an entire new genre of TV - the Sci-Fi hybrid. Basically Sci-Fi plus a whole lot more.
I love piecing the clues together, the references to religion, geography, historical figures, historical events, philosophy, literature, and of course the numbers! After each show I scour the Lost forums looking for clues I missed - piping in about those I found, slapping my head on those I missed and researching those I knew nothing about. We fans will speculate, theorize and re-hash events in our quest for the truth.
With the exception of last year, the season opener is always a jaw dropper. Typically the 1st and last shows of the season both are. It will be interesting to see what happens with the new characters this year. With the exception of Paulo and whats-her-name (so insignificant I can't remember her name) the new characters have always added a surprising new dimension to the show - Ana Lucia, Mr. Eko, Libby, Benry, Charlotte, Miles, Dan, Juliette and "the pilot" were ALL great additions.
The countdown has begun. I can reclaim my life in a few months but until then it is "Lost-centric". Hurley, Jack, Sawyer, Kate, Sayid, John, Sun, Jin (hopefully), Ben, Juliette, - welcome back. I've missed you all. Claire and Charlie - will we be seeing you? Only time will tell. Remember - time is relative.
OK, any other fellow Losties, feel free to post about your excitement!
