With the epic Lost Mafia game going, I was finally inspired to watch all of Lost and I'm now 5.6% of 35gig away from seeing the whole picture from start to finish.

You see, I watched the show when it first started religiously. I watched the first couple of seasons and I'm not even entirely sure of where I stopped. I remember that at the time I was having regular smoking sessions with a mate of mine. His mum was staying there one week and she was watching the only TV in the house.

Missing a few episodes and simply never catching up, I never saw what actually happened. I have read what happens at the end of the series, but what leads to there is what interests me. Knowing I would eventually watch it, I didn't read much else.

So, lost-fans tell me:
Am I in for a treat?
Were you left SATISFIED?
"Caitlyn Jenner is an incredibly brave and stunningly beautiful woman."

Yes, and yes. Although it'd probably be better if you knew the ending AFTER seeing the rest of the series, it's still amazing.

I'm eventually going to watch them, except I'm going to rent them.

I highly recommend Netflix for watching LOST, because you can stream all of the episodes from Seasons 1 - 5 instantly. Only the very last season you will have to get disc by disc. I think Netflix is preferable because it's more convenient; you can watch instantly any time you want, and the entire series is fantastic with multiple cliff-hangers per episode so it'll drive you nuts if you really want to watch the next episode and can't lol.

Regarding the series, it's definitely in my top 3 of all time because I like that it's a little bit of everything: philosophical, action, romance, comedy, drama, suspense, sci fi, in depth characters, etc. What more could you possibly want in a series? While it's fun to reminisce about the beginning I'd say the series gets progressively better, and in my opinion ultimately culminates with the season 5 finale. After that, you expect the show to become ridiculously AWESOME and topsy turvy, however takes a more... religious (?) approach in the final season, which ultimately ruined it for me.

There have been some disagreements about what, if any, religious elements there actually are. Maybe there are none, but it sure sets up this good vs. evil dichotomy that ultimately just went in an entirely different direction from the epic sci-fi conclusion that I had imagined. However it's still entirely worth the watch nonetheless! Besides, I'd like someone else to discuss the ending with, as I feel it is unfairly harshly criticized though considering the overall amazingness of the entire series, I can totally understand fans' high expectations and why some people felt let down. Still, overall it's definitely worth the time to watch it all so that's all that really matters. Enjoy and keep me posted on where you're at :)

Why are you downloading? You know their is a website that is basically only in existence for LOST...

it's called Hulu, the only season they don't have is season 6

Anyways, you will not be disappointed. This is by far (imo) the best show that has ever been on tv. Although it will ruin some things since you know the ending already.

Why am I downloading it? Because I can.
Once I actually have the files, I can do what I want with them, which is the obvious advantage over streaming. I often put files on to a USB drive which plugs directly into my TV.
It's finished now, so I'm going to start tonight me thinks.
