TV Review

Tomorrow I'll discuss the hazards of installing a new refrigerator and a new dishwasher in the same day, but I'm doing a short television show review first. I almost never watch much but news and sports, but this review in our local paper intrigued me, so I sat down and watched Lost tonight.

I liked it. There's lots of room for character development, the premise is not particularly outlandish (other than the creepy critter you never see, and hey, on a deserted island who knows what evolution left behind, right?), and it's filmed on Oahu. What's not to like? Most of the cast has relocated here to live, too, and the producers are thinking big. The review cited above says they've got four or five seasons already planned out, which is either hubris or hope triumphing over experience. We'll see how it goes.

I saw it and it didn't grab my attention. I suppose the "monster" won't be fully seen until future episodes-if even then..
And of course they will find some "lost" survivors or natives of the island..I just think you can go just so far with this premise...its been all done before..
I am waiting for Mothra, Godzilla, King Kong, and Mighty Joe Young to come down from the mountain.. :^}
Hey, I watched The Great Race,and taped Nip&Tuck--what the heck do I know???

Oh wait, I forgot the most scary of all the 50's, in black and white, on a limited budget:
The guy in the Gorilla suit with the tv helmet on his head!!!
Now that is a rating's sweep!!!

I think it's going to have a supernatural element, rather than a land that time forgot kind of thing.

Scott and I watched it last night and I was really taken in by it. The first 20 minutes were quite intense.

Ms. Toxic, you're not usually that cynical. ;)

Kim, you may be right, but what supernatural element could have done what it did to the pilot?
