I have spent a portion of my summer days watching TV. Yes... believe it or not folks, I took time off blogging to watch TV! Well ... not exactly but I did watch more than I planned though I did, however, spend a lot of time renovating the ol' house (which I shall speak about at a later date) and mountain biking.

Three years ago, a TV series called Lost hit hit airways. I was eagerly looking forward to becoming a fan of the series but that became short-lived when I missed part two of the series premiere. Now three years later, I decided to find out what all the rave is by playing catch up on the first three seasons so that I could watch season four this fall.

Now, for those who know nothing about this particular series, Lost is a popular serial drama television series that follows the lives of plane crash survivors on a tropical island after a passenger jet flying between Australia and the United States crashes somewhere in the South Pacific. Each episode typically features a primary storyline on the island as well as a secondary storyline from another point in a character's life.

Well, by the end of the first episode, I was hooked and now, after 71 forty-two minute episodes (50 whopping hours worth!) of Lost, I can't wait until this season arrives. I know... get a life Dave! For those who enjoy topics concerning how our lives are more intertwined with those around us more than we realize, I would suggest this series as a possible form of TV entertainment... just be prepared to play catch up ... fifty hours worth!!

What I've hated about Lost has been the way it's aired. A few episodes, then multiple reruns and then another couple of new episodes and so on. Last year there were 6 or so new ones then they stopped airing for a couple of months. This year, the new season starts in February. I very much doubt that I'll be watching. I'll wait for the DVD.

I've been hooked on 'Lost' since day 1. I read the message boards as soon as the show is over. I too can't wait till the new season starts. I'd love to watch them all again.

My best friend is into it and I've watched a few, of course I'm totally lost in regard to the plot

i stay on top of this show. it's on my favorites list. if i can't watch it the nite it airs (for some really important unforeseen circumstance), then i tape it and watch it before the next week. it's not supposed to end until 2010, i believe.
