2. You actually DO get to see the monster, on many different occasions. But sadly, it's not a dinosaur.
3. I LOVE LOST. It's had many, many stupid parts, but the amazing parts (e.g. Ben Linus, one of the best TV villains of all time) make up for it times ten. (It's a helluva lot better than Twin Peaks, that's for certain.) I know an INTP who loves Lost, as well as quite a few others who want to get into it. Most other S types I know think that it's stupid.
