General Question

Am I the only person who just doesn't like Lost?

Asked by eatmunky (358points) October 1st, 2008

I’ve watched about half of the first season so far. Does it get any better or is it just more and more unanswered questions and bad writing?

I never got into it at all either. I watched it for awhile and thought…blah. Haven’t been back since. So, no you’re not alone!

Welcome to fluther, btw!

yes you are.

I like it because of that reason. It makes you ask “why” “how”.

Stuff does get answered and more stuff comes unanswered. Love it.

They have a definite end point in mind for the show. Once it is done, all questions will be answered.

I’ve never even watched it. Then again, I don’t really have time to watch any TV show. :( Unless I’m sick. I’ll let you know next time I get sick.

Nope. Hated it since day one. Can’t force myself to watch more than one minute. WTF?!
Here’s a Q, What compels people to watch it?

SoapChef's avatar

Nope, we watched the first couple episodes and went WTF? Yawn.

I gave up on Lost after the season finale episode where the blond guy dies. That episode insulted everyone’s intelligence. Why doesn’t the doctor just pick up the walkie and say “I’ve got Ben here and he’ll be dead if you kill my people.” And why does the blond guy close the door on himself rather than just run out of the room and swim to the surface?? Or why doesn’t he just swim out through the blown out window after the water pours in.

Lost is totally lame.

No, you are not. The first episode creeped me out and I stopped watching. I tried again last season, but that freaky cult leader guy creeped me out even more than the first episode.

I saw one episode where that guy from Party of Five was talking to one of the ladies about a tattoo on his arm. She told him what it said (it was Chinese Symbols) and he responded, “yes, I know that what it says, but that isn’t what it means.” WTF?

Nope. I don’t like it either. I watched about 3/4 of one of the first episodes and spent alot of time w/ my brow wrinkled saying…“what th-...?!”

Nope! I just couldn’t get into it.

I love it, but clearly you’re not the only one who doesn’t…

My username is a Lost reference.

It’s an excellent show, and I’m more than slightly obsessed.

Things certainly do get answered.

Seasons 1 & 2 set up a lot of questions. Seasons 3 & 4 answered a lot of questions. Everything fits together very nicely. It’s clear Lindelof & Cuse had a plan from the start.

I’m looking forward to Seasons 5 & 6.

I liked it in the beginning, but not so much in the grand scheme of things. The small points they made are what I liked about the show. The way some of the scenes were filmed and what music was chosen to go along with it. The way in which society was reflected on a regular basis… Yeah. Sorry, I’m weird.

Hated it toward the end.

eatmunky's avatar

Well it’s good to know they start adressing some questions… I dunno I guess it just doesn’t click for me. J.J. Abrams seems to be a fan of shock value over screenwriting. Especially after watching Fringe. The dialogue is god-awful and the characters are cardboard. But i kinda like it cuz of all the weird supernatural stuff :D

I guess Lost’s plot device doesn’t seem nearly as interesting as I’d hoped. And I think plot devices are the only thing Abrams has going for him.

I have so many questions that I have to watch the next episode, which is probably the way they get people to keep watching. So far I love it. Not because it’s a good or bad show, but because I want to know where they are..

syz's avatar

I’ve never watched it.

Tantigirl's avatar

No, you’re not the only one who doesn’t like it. I can’t stand it, it is the worst show I’ve seen in a long time and there are some bad ones out there right now!!

jjd2006's avatar

Lost is the best thing that ever happened to me.
I have no idea how someone could NOT like it.
Seriously, it’s right up there with Jesus…

babiturtle36's avatar

I only watched the first season. I was bored with it. It doesn’t move fast enough to hold my attention.

augustlan's avatar

I neglected to see the first several episodes. When everyone started talking about it, I tried to get into it, but never could. I thought maybe it was because I hadn’t seen it from the beginning. So I decided to catch Fringe from the first episode (watched about half of it and bailed), and have seen all of the other episodes so far…but I’m not crazy about it either. I’m in a “wait and see” holding pattern on this one.

Wine3213's avatar

I don’t watch it. I tried to get into it, but it just seems so far fetched. It’s like the writers sit in a room and try to see what bullshit they can come up with. One episode the characters are trying to find food, the next, they’re fighting a dragon, or something crazy. (that might be a little exaggerated,but u get the idea)

andrew's avatar

I hate myself for loving it, does that count?

flameboi's avatar

nope, I hate it, all the way to the end

steveprutz's avatar

I think you stopped too soon.

The second half of season 1 and the entire season 2 are THE BEST. They “open” the hatch, and major stories are about to emerge.
