Initially, when Lost first premiered, I thought it was very Survivor like - left on an island, and try to survive. Least to say, Lost didn't really appeal to me at the start. But then again, it has high ratings...
Asking my friends who have watched the series - they gave me mixed reviews. While a friend said its way more interesting than the Superheroes from Heroes, however, I've also gotten reviews from another friend who said that Lost is boring.
Still, reviews are personal, and with its high ratings...
"I just had to watch what this series is all about."
And personally, I find Lost so similar to Heroes in nearly every sense - there's a group of people from the world over, with distinct characters... with each having their own story (btw, even the characters in both series seem to have similar characteristics!). In some ways, this makes the series interesting.
But it's also this that makes the series a drag. Unlike Asian drama series, which mainly have 2-3 different plots going on - and most of them having forward-moving storylines, however in Lost, it's much more complicated.
This 'ding dong' effect from a character's past to another, then moving to the present day issues on the island, with many stops in between the issues... can be a bit of a drawback especially for one watching after a long day at work.
But despite all these, I'm not complaining. I still find the series quite unique and am still clocking my hours. So far, the series seem to be building up more - and I hope it can only get better :)
Have u watched Lost? What do u think? And what do u think I should watch next? :)
