Is it just me or has anyone gotten COMPLETELY sucked in to the tv show "LOST"?

Of course, as much as I fly, I do have to leave the room during the plane crash scenes.  I go brush my teeth which means my dental hygeine has increased a thousand fold (not that it was bad to begin with, mind you) but the noise of brushing my teeth drowns out the sounds of the crash.

What more can you ask for ... a rockin' show and fresh minty breath!

I'm normally out on Wednesdays, but the nights I'm home, I don't miss it.

I think they're all actually dead in an "The Others" scenario.

I love that theory !  The concept of atonement is cool.

Even though Lost won't be shown in the UK until next year, my wife has been downloading the episodes as they come available (I think we're keeping pace with you colonials) and I love the bugger.  It definitely stands there, in my mind, alongside Buffy, Dead Like Me and Angel as one of the best US series of the past few years.

Plus I think I'm in love with Evengelline Lilly who plays Kate wub.gif

Just thought I'd resurrect this and see if anyone's still watching.  I'm lovin' this show big time....it's the only one on my current tv must-see list.  Last night's ep was another great one with another great cliffhanger. 1022.gif

This show is awesome! I've even given up 'Smallville' in order to watch it! (I need Tivo.)

Well last night's episode has only just finished downloading.  We'll watch tonight after the kids are in bed as James doesn't like it.

Great show.  My Tivo is set for it.  I really like the way they tell each characters story.

Tivo is basiclly a computerized VCR.  It is connected to your cable company & gets the on screen tv program lisitng.  You can set it to record every episode of a particular show.  It will suggest things based on what you have recorded before.  It records everything to a hard drive instead of a tape.  It's totally reusable, it doesn't wear out.  You can fast forward thru 3 minutes of commercials in about 15 seconds.  You can puase live tv for up to 30 minutes, rewind a show if you miss dialog, play in slow motion.  You can do your own instant replays.  It's the greatest thing since sliced bread.

I'm guessing that they'll start reruning the shows in December sometime, so keep an eye on the tv guide and start watching them then.....don't wait until summer, it's too good to wait that long 1022.gif

the standard practice for most major tv networks is to rerun entire season again once they air the season finale...especially for the hit shows so i'm pretty sure this will apply to Lost as well  biggrin.gif
