One of the things that I love about Lost is that almost everywhere that I look I can find an article or blog posting discussing it. Most TV shows only get written about, outside of TV blogs, when they are reviewed at their premiere, when any big changes occur, at the beginning of each season and at their finale (American Idol excluded). For the past 8 weeks, when Lost was airing every Thursday night, I would do a Google News search for Lost every Friday (which isn’t so easy given its name). Articles about the previous night’s Lost episode would appear in every type of newspaper and magazine online. Lost fans can’t stop writing about the mysteries of Lost.
Time Magazine’s Tuned In Blog, written by James Poniewozik, had a new posting the other day titled “Lost Discussion Group: The Oceanic Not-Six”. It is a fascinating discussion, with many long thought-out commentsby readers, about the mystery of what happens to the other Losties and the Others after the Oceanic 6 get off the Island. I still can’t decide whether I think Jim and/or Claire are dead or alive. A great read for any Lost fan.
Then there also are the occasional postings from disgruntled viewers about either Lost going downhill or complaints about the show. Being such a fan I am usually not happy about these. However, today I read one titled Top 10 *most annoying* Lost moments, and I must say I enjoyed it. It wasn’t mean-spirited at all. And again, as with any Lost posting of substance, many readers commented. I agreed with most of the list with my most annoying moment from the list being Locke’s willingness to trust Ben over and over again.
