I may have an advantage when it comes to following the show Lost. When you get up at 3:30am, watching a prime time television show is it's own exercise in time travel.
I've actually worked this shift 10 out of the last 13 years and I used to try to watch a lot more TV. The DVR technology makes it so much easier – yes I used to set my VCR timer to watch ER and Seinfeld – but I actually watch a lot less. Of course, 13 years ago, I didn't have children so I had a little bit more free time.
Right now, I'm only watching news and Lost. My husband hates this show. My mom and I love it. She's watched since the very first episode; I got into it during the summer reruns before season 2. I love that it's crazy. I love that we've had very little idea of how the mysteries will wrap up and I absolutely love that the whole thing will end next year.
One of the best things about Lost is all of the analysis on line. You've got recaps and comments at Television Without Pity. Entertainment Weekly has too many "star" stories for my taste, but also some thoughtful analysis and predictions. The smartest stuff is at the Washington Post. The goofiest may be Lost Untangled, but it made me laugh out loud. (There is a web controversy about that last one. Check out The Fine Brothers' videos and decide for yourself whether ABC is paying homage or just ripping them off)
If you watch the show (and if you don't, are you still reading?) I'm with you if you're sick and tired of Jack and Kate. I love Sawyer, I love Ben and I'm crazy about Sun and Jin. My theory? Sorry, don't have one. Just hope they keep up the pace they're on this season all the way to the end next year. And nothing better happen to Vincent.
