    So far it seems that xxFJs and xxTPs like Lost better than xxFPs and xxTJs.

    Word. Well, that was my impression as soon as I set eyes on the thing. I asked myself why something so manipulative and incoherent could possibly be popular, then the words "Target demographics" sprang to mind.

    Well, I'll put it this way: if it looks like a turd, and smells like a turd, do you trust what previous experience has told you of the nature of turds and your ability to recognise them, and steer well clear, or do you stick your finger in, just to make sure?

    Interesting, it seems to support Peacebaby's theory at any rate.

    I loved the show, and loved the finale.

    You can determine that by watching 5 episodes of a 6 season show? Not bad.

    i caught up on seasons 1-5 on hulu/dvd a month before season 6 started. thats a whole fucking lot of Lost. only around season 3 was i feeling burnt out.

    honestly the first few seasons were my least favorite. john locke's character was the draw for me. i didn't care much for the relationships between jack, kate and sawyer. there wasn't enough movement in the plot. things just kind of meandered and dragged along too much. michael's character was PAINFUL to watch. its not until the 4th season that the story really picked up for me.

    season 4 and especially 5 were fucking awesome. in season 4, i was a big fan of daniel faraday and miles and that hot british ginger and the story that was brought along with them, with mercenaries and what i construed as real danger (the smoke monster was just kinda silly till it was fleshed out in season 6). also, it was great seeing jack turned into a pathetic piece of shit after he escaped. the whole charles widmore subplot was great and moving the island was bad ass and desmond's story proved to be one of the more interesting to me. when he found his constant, he became my favorite character next to locke. oh and it broke my fucking heart when i found out locke dies.

    most people i hear from hated season 5 and quit watching as soon as time travel was introduced. season 5 was when i decided i am in love with the show. the whole traveling back to 1975 and living with the dharma initiative (who turned out to be just a bunch of hippies) was great. maybe i am just a sucker for time travel plot devices. and my LEAST favorite character next to kate, who is jack, finally redeemed himself in my eyes when he strapped the hydrogen bomb to his back and marched off towards the swan station in the season finale.

    i feel like i am still digesting season 6. it was very intense and plot-oriented but was amazing on its own. the more i think about the finale the more i like it. anyways, i would probably watch the series all over again and put it up there with other shows i loved like carnivale, six feet under and dexter. good times.

    Nice logic there, girl.

    Go back to the part where I said, "Apparently it worked for me, and apparently it did not work for others... and that's fine."
    Reread it a few times and chew on it.
    That's why conversations like this irritate me: Arguing over preference is ridiculous.

    Frank: You should meatloaf because it's realllllly good!
    Jill: Uggh, I think meatloaf sucks.
    Frank: But I like it! What's your problem?
    Jill: You're just an idiot for liking meatloaf.
    Frank: It tastes good!
    Jill: It tastes like bull turds!
    Frank: Hater!
    Jill: Fanboy!
    Frank: *shoves meatloaf in Jill's hair*
    Jill: *hits Frank over head with Lost Season 5 DVD pack*

    Meh.

    I started watching lost, but was always busy with research or something and after I missed a few episodes I really was lost on the plot. Unfortunately I didn't have enough time to catch back up with it so I stopped watching it. From what I watched at the beginning though I liked it a lot.

    Enough to know I didn't want to step in it and spend ages cleaning it off again; it has to be one of those snap decisions reallly
