This is WAY off topic but I thought I would share anyways. As some of you know and others will be learning for the first time, we haven’t had TV for years now. It was one of the sacrifices that we had to make in order to moving forward. We stream Netflix or Hulu and that’s about it. Recently, Lizze and I began watching the “Lost” series. We had boxset so we were able to watch it start to finish on our time frame. Pretty soon we were cramming in as many episodes every night as possible. It took us about a month to actually finish all 6 seasons but man was it worth it. I have NEVER been so taken in by a TV series EVER.
“Lost” had a way of sucking me into it’s crazy and confusing plot. What’s really weird is that I NEVER get emotionally attached to a TV show or movie in this way. There were nights that we would get to the end of an episode and it would be like 1am and we would compulsively start the next episode. Lizze would usually fall asleep on the couch and I would just keep plugin away…sorry honey. Have any of you ever watched “Lost”? Anyway my point to writing this was not really to review the show. Although I would rate it easily a MUST SEE.
The reason I’m writing this is because we watched the series finale the other day and I have just been struggling to move past the fact that it’s over. Is that weird? There have been many TV shows that I have LOVED and were canceled, most notably would be Monk and the Stargate series (all three of them). While I was disappointed that they had ended I never actually felt a loss like I did at the end of “Lost”. It really is a unique experience for me and my life is full of what most people would consider unique experiences, both good and bad. I just really don’t understand why it is having this profound of an impact on me. I could have easily watched another 6 seasons or more. However, sadly all good things come to an end.
Lizze and I have decided to pick another series that we can get and do the same thing. It was nice and helped me to feel a bit of normalcy in an otherwise chaotic life. I think we are going with “24”. I watched the first episode last night but I don’t know if Lizze can get into it. From what I hear that was another GREAT series that we never watched.
Anyone have any suggestions? Also did you ever watch “Lost” and if so did you have trouble walking away at the end?
Now that I have made all of you think I’ve “Lost” my mind, I’m off to play some COD: Black Opps.
