I could very likely come up with a hundred if I had to, but you indeed shouldn’t need more than thesis ten to coax you to love Alfabet’s Lost (ter 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 veranderlijk characterization. Te Lost, all the actors and actresses supply.
Terry O’Quinn even won an Emmy ter 2007 for Outstanding Supporting Actor ter a Stuk 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 ter 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 te 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 te HD. You can purchase the entire series on Blu-ray if you missed the chance to see te high quality when Lost wasgoed on the air.
Personally, my beloved beautiful Lost location wasgoed always Hurley’s golving 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 demonstrate it.
On Lost, wij get stud hugs, dude talks, dude “I love you”s. Witness 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 across the showcase there is a mix of races and ages and hookup and nationality.
Even ter 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. Without mercy. It didn’t matter what you looked like, that’s for sure.
So many shows just embark a entirely fresh story at the beginning of each gig. This can work te 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 scenes, if watching te the present day time of marathon viewing), but Lost always talent a payoff te 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 beloved 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 te 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 demonstrate it, demonstrated ter their old podcasts. Nowadays you can find them on Twitter. However 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 demonstrate is?!) or whether you feel you had enough answers.
They told the story they meant to tell, and I’ll always respect that.
