^^ So we should only have positive things to say about any movie or TV show that we watch?
Don't watch it.
^^ So I should not watch something in order to see if I will enjoy it??
Sorry but that logic doesn't make sense to me.
You completely misunderstood me. You can post your opinion, who cares. But once you accomplished that why do you keep trying to force your opinion into others who enjoy something you do not ?
THAT'S what I mean. Post your opinion, respect others who are against it. Don't keep posting negative shit on and on and on. That's bad even in an online environment.
^^ No I think you didn't bother to read my post. I had just seen the start of the new season on TV and had posted a critique. My previous posts had been about the rest of the series that I had seen and why I had lost interest (no pun intended). I only watched the begining of this new season because of positive comments made in threads like this. Hence my disgust at wasting my time.
LOST is the best tv series ever! .
every episode makes me want to watch the next! it's brilliant.
I agree that season 3 was a bit boring, but it was necessary.the series lost some attencion there.
But last season was very very good! and this one is even better.
Some misterys are falling like coconuts in Big Z's homeland, I can't wait to see yesterdays episode tonight!
LOST is far superior to every other series, watch it from ep.1 to now and you will love. no doubt!
hey and there's more till 2010!!

I just saw seasons 1-6 these last few months... Yeah, yeah im late but atleast i could watch as many episodes i wanted.
Great series IMO. I was'nt lost at with the show, i loved most of the Characters. John Locke's character development was brilliant, he was constantly evolving yet being himself. Most characters that i got sick of also evolved a bit in the 5'th season and they became much more likeable... except for kate.. Evangeline Lilly's character was so bad, 6 seasons and not a single bit of development, ugh... she's hot though heheheheh.
I loved the series but i felt like they totally dropped the ball with the ending. I was'nt confused one bit during the entire show but the ending left me with questions.. the last part itself is self explanatory but it raised questions as to what was happening prior to the ending. I won't get into it because I'm not leaving spoilers incase someone hasnt finished it but wants to.
I never watch tv series because they become really redundant and i always have to wait a long ass time to see another episode. The last series i saw was Prison Break on DVD (i hate watching them on tv), the 1st season was great but the rest was just lame. Even though lost got a bit redundant, i loved how they constantly revealed story pieces that were hinted to in the beginning of the show, it gave the story a lot of depth and made it clear that the writers really thought things through looking forward into all of the seasons as opposed to thinking from season to season, seems like they came up with the entire 6 season story before production began.
I watch Dexter once in a while.. I like it, its fun but the characters are so shallow. I almost stopped watching it after a few episodes because of how weak all the characters were except for dexter. They are all predictable and all have an exaggerated personality. I totally hate dexter's sister in that show, such a predictable bratt.. geez. Some of the characters in Lost, John Locke for example, make the characters in Dexter, and many other tv shows ive seen, seem like cartoon characters.

I agree that watching this show on DVD would be a great way to watch it. 6 years is a long time to drag that shit out. Whereas back-to-back you'd feel like the story was actually moving places, albeit slowly.
But I'll reiterate a point I made before about Lost: charcter development, story arcs, etc; these are not new things exclusive to Lost. In fact these are the basis of any decent TV show. Personally I think that Lost has one of the least involving and slowest moving stories on TV (aside from daytime soapies, which I also abore). The characters were nothing amazing, in fact the ensemble casting was poorly done and only saught to slow the already slow pace of the series down even further with its continuous use of flashbacks. I also think that the story arc is laughably simple and boring, especially given how lauded it is. I'm betting that a lot of the mystery of the series was lost (pun intended) when you watched the series in one hit rather than in episodic form over 6 years. Why? Because there was no real mystery, just drip feeding of plot.

say what got you thinking at the end dilated, no spoiler fear.
Lost was the best ever IMO.
but Dexter is my favourite tv show, so good. And I love Dex's sister for ****ing sake!
thank god Michael C. Hall beated cancer.
^^ Have you ever watched anything decent, like Deadwood or X-Files or The Wire or Justified or the first season of The Shield!?!
Those shows piss all over the soapy style crap of Lost and Prison Break.
^ easy on the language lol
I cant watch justified. After Hitman, i dont even want to see that actors face. I know its immature but Hitman was just so bad and i will forever assosciate olyphant with that movie.
What do you think about Breaking Bad? I was thinking about watching it after a few seasons go by so i can just watch it through netflix or Hulu back to back.
Another TV series i saw not too long ago was Twin Peaks... It started off great but the teen angst BS was so annoying and the show got really inconsistent... not to mention the cliff hanger final episode :/

There is a general marketing ploy that is used in media, that if done correctly will sell ice to eskimos, or at least have them buy a fridge. This is basically saturation exposure. Watch, listen or read about something often enough and you will come to like it regardless of any actual quality on the part of the media in question. Now you can't sell utter shit, but if you do something average then it suddenly becomes the most amazing thing ever, despite not even coming close.
edit: I was thinking about your point about liking slower paced shows while I was making lunch. I agree that if you are liking endless exposition and fleshing out of single moments as a motif then Lost would be very entertaining. I just can't see how this could be interesting as I feel this lacks a dynamic. Basically you end up treading the same ground week in week out. But some people love the proceedural crime drama's because of this formulae, while I can only watch a few before it becomes all too predictable. /edit
I'm not sure about Breaking Bad. I've liked the episodes I've watched but I still haven't bothered to get the rest of the series. I think that says it all really, good, but I could take it or leave it. Ditto The Wire. I was religious with that up until they killed off Stringer Bell.
So you would honestly rate X-Files lower than Lost? Because I don't think Lost is even in the same league, it is amateur in comparison.Originally Posted by mvsf1
