Okay everyone. Should I do it? I am debating whether or not to begin watching LOST on Netflix. Keep in mind, I have never seen a single episode and continue to hear some pretty amazing things about it. I also hear that as the show progresses it becomes mildly absurd and stupid (kind of like Heroes, which started strong but ended poorly). I NEED HELP!
People tell me I would love this show. They say that my love of The Twilight Zone, Ray Bradbury, and Man v Wild make this show perfect for me specifically. They liken the program to a page turner suspense story, one where you can't pry the book from your engrossed fingers. My girlfriend told me that she and her sister were so entrenched in it that they watched LOST for close to 12 hours on Netflix.
The question is, do I really need that kind of a commitment?
Sure, the show may be great but what happens when it starts sucking? Will I get mad? Will watching hours and hours of episodes lead me to a dead end, a confusing and upsetting conclusion, a poorly written and oddly assembled gaggle of plot lines?
Furthermore, LOST was kind of a big deal. I never hopped on the bandwagon when it was popular, why should I do it now? I never watched Entourage or True Blood, but dammit did I love Dexter. Perhaps this will be my next Dexter. I remember watching Arrested Development on Hulu and kicking myself in the ass for not watching it while it was on TV. Perhaps this will be my Arrested Development.
For some reason I feel that I am being pulled towards this program. A strange intergalactic force wants me to dim the lights and watch this Gilligan's Island on crack cocaine. To be honest I am at a fork in the road. That is why I am leaving it up to you, the readers, to sway me in one direction or the other. Based on your comments I will or will not watch this show.
Ground Rules: Don't be a dick and spoil anything. I will hate you and your username will remain visible for everyone to make fun of and attack incessantly. Please, lets have some class.
Let the games begin: Should I watch LOST or not?
