    Default Did you like the TV series LOST?

    If you want to expand on your answer, that's great. I have a budding theory on this to explain why it's either loved or hated.

    (Regardless of how it ended.)

    Or share your theory here on why it became such a phenomenon.

    I really fucking find the whole series completely disgusting after watching the finale. It's the first time in my life I truly regret the time I have spent doing something.

    I'm interested too to know what types really LOVED it, and conversely DETESTED it - or if like me you loved it at first then fell out of it.

    So - do expand your thoughts, I think my offended Fi was an issue at play here

    I don't know about disgusting, exactly, but I did think it was pretty pisspoor from the little I saw of it. It was like the unholy bastard offspring of Lord of the Flies and some eye-wateringly inane soap opera devised by a corporate consortium and aimed at hitting as many demographic ratings targets among the middle classes as possible to maximise profit. Psychology? Absent. Practicalities? Irrelevant. Relationships? Mindlessly superficial. Cliches? Abounding. Suspension of disbelief required to watch the damn thing without hurling something at the Tv? Off the scale.

    Not that I paid it much attention for all that. I half saw it a few times on others' tv's, and when my eyes started to glaze over I simply found something more interesting to do than watch it. It wasn't hard to think of a more interesting thing

    I think that its less of a Fe/Fi thing and more of a P/J aspect which effects the type's overall predisposition to acquire the taste for Lost.

    At certain times the show pissed me off too but in general I liked it. Not a great work of art. Yet it seems like the writers and directors had fun putting it together and that feeling transmuted to the actors and its fans.
    I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.

    I was wondering why there didn't exactly seem to be a full range of possibilities covered!

    P should love it in theory ... all the possibilites, no?

    I don't think that's the core of it though.
