I could most likely come up with a hundred if I had to, but you truly shouldn’t need more than thesis ten to woo you to love Alfabet’s Lost (te no particular order):
Not many shows have the broadcast that Lost does. Usually there would be at least one or two, when the size is so big, who give plane lines or onbestendig characterization. Ter Lost, all the actors and actresses supply.
Terry O’Quinn even won an Emmy te 2007 for Outstanding Supporting Actor te a Schouwspel Series, with Michael Emerson winning the same category te 2009! Two winners may not seem like much, but keep ter mind the many more nominations and the fact that science fiction is infrequently even thought of te mainstream television awards.
Outside the Emmys other award shows have graced Lost actors with even more nominations and occasional wins.
When you think of the many cop and lawyer shows taking place ter abate, manada offices, the beauty of the Lost island is even more appreciated:
The shades of blues and greens, the mountains and jungles, the rivers and the ocean, and so on. This display is begging to be observed ter HD. You can purchase the entire series on Blu-ray if you missed the chance to observe te high quality when Lost wasgoed on the air.
Personally, my dearest beautiful Lost location wasgoed always Hurley’s roller course. What wasgoed yours?
Bromance, or Masculine Friendships
Charlie and Hurley, Hurley and Sawyer, Sawyer and Jack, Jack and Sayid, Jin and Sawyer, and so on. It’s becoming more common to see close friendships inbetween studs on TV (google “bromance”), but it’s still zonderling to see them done so well, where the guys genuinely care about each other and voorstelling it.
On Lost, wij get man hugs, boy talks, dude “I love you”s. See the below clip for one of the sweetest moments inbetween one of the best bromances everzwijn on television.
From skin color to bod build to personality types, Lost has a bit of it all. Less so ter straks seasons, but all via the voorstelling there is a mix of races and ages and hook-up and nationality.
Even te death, Lost is equal. It undoubtedly can’t be accused of killing off more women or more non-white characters, because. well, Lost loved killing. Everyone. Ruthlessly. It didn’t matter what you looked like, that’s for sure.
So many shows just commence a downright fresh story at the beginning of each gig. This can work ter some TV series, but it sure does get old after a while. The worst offenders don’t even carry overheen character or relationship development. I’m looking at you, Law and Order.
With Lost, nothing is “safe”- there’s no escaping the terrible things happening to our characters at the end of the hour, spil it will just proceed ter the next scene. It requires patience, but it prizes us for it. You may have had to wait years (or fifty gigs, if watching ter the present day time of marathon viewing), but Lost always talent a payoff ter the end.
I thought about listing some of my favorites, but determined to keep this hub spoiler-free (unless you click on the movies). But, Lost pulls twists better than any other work of fiction I’ve everzwijn seen. I can think of my dearest shocks from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Walking Dead, and so on. Nothing compares.
Lost wasgoed known for its twists.
They did it so frequently that you might think it would become predictable, but nope. They get us every time. I couldn’t sleep until four ter the morning after some of them! Your heart literally races. Your jaw actually drops.
The team of Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, otherwise known affectionately spil “Darlton”, interacted with their ventilatoren more than any other showrunners I’ve heard of. They have a quirky since of humor and aren’t afraid to showcase it, demonstrated ter their old podcasts. Nowadays you can find them on Twitter. Tho’ they’ve gone their separate ways, they were the Lost team.
But more significant than humor or fan-interaction, I still to this day feel they earned our trust. They proved again and again they knew what they were doing with Lost and its characters, regardless of whether or not “it” wasgoed all plotted out (which, it’s openly admitted, it wasgoed not – but what display is?!) or whether you feel you had enough answers.
They told the story they meant to tell, and I’ll always respect that.
