What is Lost about, anyway?

There was something in the paper today about it; some sort of synopsis, and it was full of kidnapping and stuff? I thought that show was about a deserted island?

It's about this Island that has mysterious mystical properties, that can heal people's disabilities, make people pregnant, give people visions, change destinies, and these (several) groups of people who are living/stranded/working on the island for whatever reason. But more than anything it's about the individual characters' straightening out their own lives and finding personal redemption. And you could say the plot is driven by the superficial actions that take place between all the characters and the bizarre connections they all have with one another.

So really it's a show essentially based on the characters' lives and personal choices.

I love it.

Oh. Ok. Thanks.

That doesn't make any sense to me, but television rarely does.

Seinfeld on an island, with hotter guys

I still like it but it is kinda about nothing until all is finally revealed eventually, if that even happens. It seems to be more about nothing now than it used to be.

or a movie trilogy, or just a really, really good miniseries.

definitely not a 22-episode per season network drama.

Lately, it's all about cages, operations, and contrived weirdness.

It needs more authentic weirdness...more underwater images of sharks with logos on their fins...I thought they were heading somewhere great at that point

The people who write it know they have problems. I wouldn't be shocked to see the series end abruptly.

In any case, martha, you ain't missing nothing. The best episodes happened a long long time ago.

If the ratings are any indication, I'd say we're in for a Quantum Leap-esque botched finale sometime soon.
