5 Brilliant series!iseebutterflies | 15/06/2009 | See all iseebutterflies's reviews (26)It's been years since a gritty, original, fascinating TV show has been made, but luckily, from amidst the ruin of teen drama's, crime thrillers and other plain monotonous shows comes this!Lost is a show that encompasses science and realism, the idea of faith and sheer transcendental craziness and also some fantastic characters, and succeeds. It is a credit to the writers of this series that in the pilot they manage to successfully include a plane crash, an attacking 'monster', tragedy whilst also introducing some great characters.Although the episodes late 40mins, you can easily sit and watch them nonstop for days! There are some great characters, and it is worth watching just for Sawyer's nicknames, Hurley's adorableness although the deeper aspects of the characters make them really likeable. Also, maybe Kate is an extreme character, but she's beautiful, cool and different so I think it works.This really is a quality series, really different and innovative. A definite for people who want something different, gritty and innovative.
