I've been watching "Lost" since it started. Part of it is sheer parochial fun; trying to identify the Hawai'i locations the production company uses (mostly in the flashbacks). But I haven't been as hooked on a television program since the heyday of "Hill Street Blues." I think it's the ensemble aspect of it that interests me, in addition to the supernatural edge. And what the hell is a polar bear doing on a tropical island, anyway?

Oh lord. You need to talk with us, because we're seriously, seriously hooked.

I sent Shelley links to two threads in the local message board where the show is being discussed at length.

I have a theory on that polar bear... and the French woman... as strange as it sounds, I think she was on a plane or a ship transporting zoo animals to Australia and her transportation crashed.
The whole show is going to turn out to be some stranger twist on "The Island of Dr. Moreau".

Either way - I'm hooked, too. ;-)

*So* hooked. It's sad, really.

My sister has seen "Hurley" in their Safeway and mom saw Naveen Andrews in the airport. I haven't been quite so lucky yet but it's only been a few days. We're going to drive out to the beach sometime this week and gawk at the set. :) I'm thinking Sawyer appears in everyone's stories but that's just a theory. There's not supposed to be too much supernatural stuff going on but they sort of inferred that the polar bear came straight out of the kid's comic book. I like that we can't really figure out what's going on.
