You can move this to the TV forum but I'm not sure if people are checking that one.

Anyways, we just started watching Lost... I know, so far behind! And I'm addicted. It wrenches at your gut AND your heart.

I don't want any spoilers, but... will I continue to love it like I do now or will it disappoint me?

I also gave up midway through season three, but not because of the lack of answers - I felt the show was getting too cluttered with characters (I couldn't care less about the "others"). Plus, it was building a mythology that didn't satisfy anymore.

But you should be OK for a while. First season's totally awesome, and the second season's pretty solid.

Ha, I bailed earlier than all of you, one episode into season two! Locke being a dangerous idiot and the magic smoke was just too much.

The show jumped the shark when Ben told Jack that the Red Sox had won the world series. Really, THAT is the news you give him about the homeland?

I still watch every episode religiously though. Being frustrated by that show is like knowing cigarettes are slowly killing you... yeah, it is a pretty obvious truth, but I just... can't... stop.

If they're both from New England... Hell, yes. It was sort of a big deal here.

I struggled through Season 3, too. It was definitely going nowhere for a while, and I was very frustrated. Then they got their groove back in the last few episodes of that season, culminating in a pants-pooping finale, and now Season 4 has been nothing but spectacular from start to finish. I don't blame anyone for quitting during Season 3 -- goodness knows I threatened to more than once -- but I do feel bad that they're missing out on how great it is now.

That's the dumbest thing I've heard today by anyone not named T. Holly.

Lost is the best SCI_FI made ever and best part of this show is the storyline more than its characters. Story is so tightly bound that the cast automatically indulge in that.
