5 A Triumph In Television That Will Be Remembered Forever.....markyytee | 07/06/2010 | See all markyytee's reviews (8)If you asked me six years ago what I thought about castaway dramas I would of possibly told you they were cliched and a dying breed. Why did I become attracted to the concept of LOST? Possibly JJ Abrams to initially start with who was a huge pedigree for the show to launch. Anyone who has seen his body of work will know how full of ideas this man has and LOST is the pivatel plate in all that.What made LOST interesting? It was simply it's own show and was a stamp to tell the world how American television could be experianced. From it's experianced cast (Matthew Fox, Naveen Andrews, Dominic Monaghan, Evangeline Lily, Micheal Emerson, Terry O Quinn and soo many others) to it's expensive production (set on location in Hawaii) you watch LOST and know a single penny hasn't been wasted. LOST has been defined as half way between film and televison due to it's presentation is next to nothing you will see on televison of it's era. It's the cinematic experiance you can watch in your own home.What is LOST all about? If you come across any fan of this show not a single person could describe it in a single sentence. That's mainly because the show is deeply layered with beautiful story telling, well structured characters and an intriguing mythology that pitches itself up there with the likes of Star Wars. However LOST is simply about a diverse group of people who survive a plane crash on a pacific Island in the South Pacific and just simply are taking on an extrodinary journey. Some would say essentially a 'character study' based upon human ideologies about what it means to be somebody in that situation.The thing I love about this show soo much is that it has a well structured plot. You know when watching this that is has a cemented beginning, middle and an end, not only to the seasons themselves but the overall story arc alone. It's mythology leaves fans debating across fan forums today and will be in years to come about the mysteries surrounding the show. The development of character is extroadinary here and by the time you have watched the first season you are invested in everybody but by the time the series ends you'll know everything about every character in this show.LOST has captured millions of people's imaginations, including my own. It has simply bacame my favourite television series ever and will probably stay there for many years to come. I'm sure people reading this review have probably watched the show before but if you are new to the series you won't be disappointed. I recommend completely. You'll come out of this show in tears.10/10 - I'll miss you forever LOST!
