It only ends once. Anything that happens before that is just progress.

No longer concerned with holding anything back, Lost is making confident strides toward its 23 May finale, building momentum in the overarching plot while still providing satisfying episode-by-episode story arcs. For the first time, I’m watching new episodes as they come out, rather than waiting for the DVD release, and have been surprisingly comfortable with having to wait each week for the story to continue. What can I say, this is my kind of show.

While Lost may not be everyone’s cup of tea, it’s clearly one of the best-executed series in history, and in many ways has led the television industry into a new generation of storytelling.

My Grade: A

  1. Agreed that Lost is a good show.
    Flash Forward had such a great pilot episode. Sad that it’s fallen so far. It had potential. Unfortunate that the guy who plays the main character is a horrible actor.
    I’ll have to check out Stargate Universe.
    I liked the last season of Heroes. Some interesting plot twists–could have been better executed, but still worth watching.
    Anxiously waiting for V to return.

  2. I’ve been trying to cut back recently on how much time I spend watching television shows, especially during Lent, but am planning to try out the third season of Heroes eventually.

    I’ve heard good things about V, too.

  3. To comment on your comment: Hmm. I did sound like Mom. Next thing you know, I’ll be writing in abstract about the snowstorm in my garage and Bom, the snow bunny….

  4. Well, it’s been over a month since you posted this, but I thought I’d comment anyways. LOST is great, and I’m glad more sci-fi shows are on than ever, and at a higher production level too.

    As per Tim’s comment: Amber and I have been watching FlashForward and V, too. FF has it’s moments, I just wish it were more consistent (in a good way). V is good as long as they stay away from the kid. I hope he dies, then ‘Juliet’ can get serious about fighting the Vs.

    I stopped watching Heroes part way through season 3. It just seemed to be the same thing over and over. I wish Sylar had ‘died’ and a not become an antihero. He does bad stuff but he’s really just confused about who he is, no he’s really evil, no he has mommy issues, no he’s the devil… oh who cares anymore. And I was sad to hear that the show was so mishandled the made ‘The Cheerleader’ start cheering for the other team to boost ratings, though they’ll say they wanted the show to be more inclusive or something.

  5. Lost is one of my all-time favourite shows. What did you think about the finale?
