So I am through episode 16 (of 25) of the first season of LOST on dvd and so far I am very, very impressed. LOST is, quite frankly, the most unique television show that I have ever seen. I am well aware that the other seasons of lost, according to most people, pale in comparison to season one. I suppose I'll make that judgement for myself when I begin the other seasons. For now though, I am captivated by the show's premise. The two biggest complaints I have about modern television are the lack of originality and the lack of character depth. LOST renders those complaints obsolete. The plot is truly original, the only television show with a plot even remotely similar would have to be the 1950's version of the twilight zone, but that show did not have recurring characters...each and every episode was independent of the others. Also, the character depth in LOST is amazing and refreshing. The show actually takes the time to make you care about the characters as you are slowly introduced to their backgrounds and what made them the person they are. True, the acting is not the best in the world, in fact it's my only complaint; however television has never been known for it's great acting. The originality and character depth make this show something to behold, at least season one anyway. I can't wait to see what the remaining nine episodes have in store!
