So here’s how it all started:
One day a few weeks ago it was really nice out, so a lot of seniors in my school decided to skip and go to the beach or just enjoy the day. Only eight people out of around twenty were actually in my AP Government class, so it was pointless for my teacher to try to teach us anything because he would have to repeat everything the next day. Instead, he said, “Why don’t we watch something on Netflix?” Eventually it was decided that we would watch the first episode of Lost, since it was entertaining while still being appropriate enough to project on the whiteboard of a high school classroom. We watched the first episode, and then the bell rang and we had to move on to our next class.
I’ve been hooked ever since.
I’m only about half way through the first season, but I seriously cannot stop thinking about it. THERE ARE SO MANY CLIFFHANGERS. Each episode ends with such a suspenseful ending, so I naturally want to keep watching until hours have passed and I’m like, “I should probably be somewhat productive today…”
Not only is it the fact that they’re stuck on this mysterious island and haven’t been rescued, but it’s also the mystery behind all of their histories and backstories. I love when it flashes back to their pasts in short snippets and you gradually learn bits and pieces of their lives. Whenever I think I have a character figured out, it flashes back to their past and I’m completely proven wrong. (EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.) All of the characters are so complex, and I can already tell that there’s going to be some awesome character development and dynamics as the series progresses!
My mom and brother have already watched and finished the entire show, so whenever I’m watching it and they’re around I’m like DO NOT TELL ME ANYTHING. I’m so terrified of hearing spoilers. I wanted to include a GIF in this post, but I was afraid that if I looked up “Lost” on Tumblr or Google I would stumble across something that would ruin the ending. I want it to be a complete surprise!
Are any of you watching Lost, or have you watched it in the past? Feel free to discuss it in the comments section below, but PLEASE: NO SPOILERS!
