Like millions of people I’m incredibly excited for the final season of LOST but I must admit, I was late to the party. When I saw the previews for season 1 I questioned the longevity of a show about people stranded on an island. I didn’t want to add another show to my watch list, but I couldn’t ignore everyone around me who talked about how great this show was. Kristyn & I finally started watching at the end of season 3 & we’ve been hooked ever since!
The writing is tremendous, the acting is amazing and the production quality equals that of any big-screen masterpiece but these are not the real reasons I watch LOST.
I watch LOST because it explores the questions in life we all face. I watch LOST because it reminds me that there is more that unites than divides us. I watch LOST because it conveys our profound desire to be loved & needed. I watch LOST because it deals with the struggle between right & wrong, destiny & choice. I watch LOST because I find pieces of myself in the story.
I look at this show as much more than good television. I look at this show as a lens through which we can see our own lives reflected. As we watch, may we fully embrace the mystery and find pieces of ourselves in the story.
