I wasn't going to watch Lost when it started. We were in the old house, Kevin was sick, and there just wasn't room in my head for another new show.

Then in the summer of 2005, I found myself reluctantly packing a house that we had lived in for fourteen years. The television was on and I wasn't paying attention to it. They were rerunning LOST in prep for the second season.

All of a sudden, I found myself listening. What the hell is this show? It's totally weird, disconnected, effed up fable. With hotties. (hello Sawyer. And Sayid. And Jin. And Jack....)

Kevin watched it with me for a little while but this certainly isn't a show for the easily distracted. He missed a few shows and Game Over, he wasn't interested anymore. I can't say that I blame him, I've had issues from time to time.

Then I found Entertainment Weekly's weekly recaps and interpretations. People much smarter than I could ever be explained the symbolism and meaning of this show. It made it more addictive than ever.

So here I sit, waiting to watch the last 2.5 hours of this crazy show. I remember watching the season finales of MASH, Seinfeld, and Friends; feeling sad as if we were losing friends. Tonight it is a mix of Explain Dammit and sadness.

I can hardly wait.

Did you watch?

i emailed you my LOST thoughts. we didn't start watching it until probably season 4 or 5. my friend had season one on dvd and we borrowed it and then i was hooked. we got caught up and watched it in real time last year and this year.

Yes! Addicted to it. With all the craziness going on, we stopped everything to watch the finale and still are talking about it.
