    I thought I'd make a thread for folk who share my sentiment. The various LOST threads are there for folk who like the show and it is a bit rude to prance in and spoil the enjoyment of folk that like it, by saying that the show is shit.

    But shit is what I think this show is. I have watched every episode of every season and it is a mystery to me why this show is so popular. Even more of a mystery than the popularity of the Sopranos. I have cheered virtually every major death. People like Charlie, Sawyers girlfriend, that brother and sister, all of those. Combined with all of the other nonsense that has appeared in the show which is only half-explained, has really made me an irritated viewer.

    Is there anyone else that has been disappointed by Lost and is waiting to see whether they can somehow pull a magic rabbit out of the hat? Explain things in a way that you will feel that you have got sufficient narrative closure?

    Lighten up! If you don't like a show, stop watching it. Don't keep banging on about why you don't like it and searching for answers. It doesn't make you a bad person if you don't like something others do.

    I don't like these threads, should I create a thread about it?

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Ok then.

    The producers have held me at gunpoint too. They are a real pair of bastards.

    To be fair, this thread became invalid as soon as The Sopranos popularity was questioned.

    I've watched every episode, but my interest and respect for the show has really waned. At this point I'm just watching for the sake of closure.

    I have enjoyed it overall but the last series or two my interest has been dwindling. It's really gone on far too long and its clear now we are getting to the end that they really could have lost a series or two from the overall arc and it would have been none the worse for it.

    It's sort of occupying the same place in my mind as BSG. Great for the most part but tainted overall by writers making it up as they go along and taking some fairly duff steps in their ever evolving story that undermine their earlier good work.

    Never watched it either. Can someone summarise what happens in one sentence?

    This thread needs the discovery of a new hatch.

    Replace watched with read, episode with post and show for thread and I agree with you.

    It's going to have to be a hell of a last episode to convince me that I've done anything other than waste my time since about halfway through season 4. A magical golden puddle? Really? That's the best you could come up with after all this time?

    the last uk episode with jacobs story was fucking awful. Hoping for something epic but it was just a whimper with bad acting. It really has declined from when it started but overall i do enjoy it.

    Plane crashes into an island, survivors think they're in EastEnders.

    Stopped watching after s02e01. I'll pick up the BDs some day I guess. No hurry, Season 1 was OK to middling.

    Should've made an 'I don't like The Wire' thread for maximum blizeosity.

    It's all my fault, if I hadn't created the first Lost thread on EG I'm sure the show would have been a complete flop and would have been cancelled years ago.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    I love how people say they've wasted their time watching this...isn't watching tv supposed to be a waste of time?

    Next one is a return to form apparently.

    Thing about Lost is, stop trying to make sense of it all. It's a whole load on nonsense, just take it at face value and enjoy it.
