The wait is over. LOST returns tonight. I am a HUGE fan - a true fanatic. LOST first premiered on September 22nd, 2004 (my birthday). My former husband and I were shopping for furniture for our son's room and we did not make it home by 8:00 to see the begining of the show. I remember listening to the plane crash scenes in the car. I was immediately hooked and I was not even actually watching the show. After the first episode, I would tell people about it and they would say something like, "Oh, thats just another 'Survival'" No way. LOST is the most thought provoking show on TV ever.
I cannot wait for season 5 to begin. Can't wait to see Jack, Locke, Sawyer, Kate, Sayid, Dezmond and Richard (the oh so handsome Richard). There are a plethora of theories but the most probable is that they are stuck in a time loop. As much as I do not want the series to end, I want to know what the secret of the "island" is. I want to know what the "black smoke monster" is. I want to know why Richard never ages. I want to know what the four toed foot is and who put it there. I think he and his people are from the Black Rock and have been on the island over 200 years. That's my theory.
It's not too late to get in and catch up. ABC has the seasons 1 - 4 online.
Incidently, I just realized why Richard is my favorite character. He looks like the young Rod Serling of the Twilight Zone. See my blog post January 1st, 2009.
