Why Did I Jump Back on the Lost Bandwagon?
WHAT. THE. FUCK. I have no goddamn clue what just happened. Maybe because I was only half paying attention. I’m definitely just forcing myself due to working with Lost zealots. People who would’ve typed Lost as LOST. That should be a generally accepted way of showing your relative enthusiasm for this clusterfuck of a show. I don’t hate it, and maybe I’ll appreciate it tomorrow when I’m talking with aforementioned zealots, but right now I just wish I never bothered getting caught up.
In fairness to Lost, I feel similarly with regards to Battlestar Galactica. Most shows have a shelf life of a few years in my eyes, it seems. 24 is actually the show that held my attention for the longest while it was running. I watched it for 4 straight seasons (2-5), watching Season 1 in between 2 and 3. But now I’ve given up on that show, along with The Office. I think the internet destroys my ability to enjoy anything for an extended period of time. While my co-workers were awaiting tonight like the second coming of Christ, I could only manage half-hearted nods of agreement with their excitement, and tonight’s episode didn’t do too much to change my general apathy.
If you want a real post about Lost, just go to the A.V. Club. They rock.
