Are you a LOSTIE?

Lost, the advertnure drama series that's presently airing on ABC in the US (they just ended their third season) has got to be one of the most entertaining television series I've ever seen. It's one of those shows that keeps you interested in what's happenning. It's a show following the lives of plane crash survivors in a remote island somewhere in the South Pacific.

What draws you to the show is the way the storyline unfolds. In essence the show follows 2 storylines; one with the current plight of each survivor and the second, from some significant point in a character's life in the past. Somehow everyone seems to have crossed paths at some point and that's what makes their present scenario mnore interesting for the viewer.

I've watched all the three seasons on DVD and I have to admit I have managed to become a "Lostie"(that's what Lost fans are called methinks)

While Magnum PI, the A Team, Miami Vice, Remington Steele and Moonlighting (my all time favorite TV shows) all had their own charm, Lost promises to deliver a unique experience to viewers looking for more than the usual crime stories and familiy dramas on the idiot box.

For thos eof you who haven't stepped on to the bandwagon, I suggest you try hooking into some re-runs if you can or do the next best thing - get the DVDs.

Lost is definitely a great show although I have to admit it does tend to drag a bit towards the end of the third season. You should try watching Heroes. It might be a little over the top for some of you but it's a great show nonetheless.

Thanks mate. I tried catching a few episodes on TV but I'm considering getting the box set of the first two season. It certainly seems like on of those series you'd want to keep as part of your collection.
