Okay, I admit it. Like KOTN, I too... am a Lost-addict.
Maybe not to the same degree, but I've been watching the show since it first aired (I think I actually saw the premiere live... I'm a sucker for shows that are a little bit mystery, a little bit paranormal, and a lot intense) .
Lost has gotten a bad rap the past couple years. The show has a lot of potential, but they have drawn out some of the plot lines for YEARS. And I'm not talking about on-again off-again relationship plot lines (though, plenty of those too). I'm talking about "secrets" that we first were given a taste of in Season 1 ... and now entering Season 5 are only beginning to get answered.
Last year's writer's strike didn't help. I basically gave up on trying to figure out when the freaking show was on (back in the days when I didn't watch much TV, unless it was to watch something SPECIFIC) and said "whatever, I'll just watch the DVD when it comes out."
It was going to be the show's next-to-last chance. If Season 4 sucked, I was on my way out the door. Off the island. See ya.
We finished Season 4 before Christmas, and I tell you... truncated season or not, I was impressed. I was back to the tried and true tradition of yelling "WHAT?!" at the TV screen, and watching multiple episodes a night because I was so hooked.
The show premieres this Thursday, for it's fifth (of seven? That's what I've heard anyways) season.
And I'm in Mexico.
Without my laptop.
So I have a couple options:
- I could wait till I get to Edmonton and try and download it there.
- I could try and find someone who has taped the episode (but I don't have a VCR so...)
- I could try and locate a TV with an American channel in Mexico...
Lost without LOST in Mexico.
