Last week I ventured off from Grey’s Anatomy and turned to another prime-time drama from the early 2000s: LOST. Fans of the show tuned in for six seasons from 2004-2010. LOST is considered one of the greatest television shows of all time, and it won several awards during its run. As per usual, however, I did not watch a single episode while it was on air. Instead, seven years later, I’m hooked.
When a flight from Sydney crashes on a desolate island, the 70 survivors must stick together. The large cast includes a surgeon, dance instructor, outlaw, pregnant woman, son and father, dog, and many more. In the first few episodes, flashbacks give insight to the characters’ lives prior to the plane crash.
Although I’m just four episodes in, I can tell I’m going to be a huge fan. It’s a little outrageous at points — they found polar bears on the island — but it’s still entertaining. By having such a large, dynamic cast, the show will probably have a wide range of stories to choose from. This is a refreshing change from Grey’s Anatomy in which all episodes follow a similar plot line.
I’m thankful Spring Break is on the horizon because I am looking forward to binge watching LOST in my spare time.
