I watched Lost last night, the double bill. I figure I'm quite far behind, and everyone's seen about half a series ahead of me, but I don't care!
I really enjoyed the first series, the first half at least, I thought it was super good. Opening scenes, amazing. Then it started to go a bit downhill when Marcus Bridgestock explained his Lost theory on the radio… Which I have now taken onboard and expanded on.
See, here's the thing. Someone has obviously wandered into the TV people's office (They all share one office, y'know) one morning and said "Right you guys, I've got this fantastic idea for a show. This aeroplane crashes on an island, some people die, some don't, there's a doctor, there's a few sexy girls and an English bloke, and we can film it in Hawaii, woo!"
Then his friend says: "So have you got any sort of plot yet?"
And the first one says: "Nah, but didn't you hear, we get to film in Hawaii!"
"Oh right, well then, let's go! We can write it on the plane on the way over, yeah!"
And there you have it. The people writing the script have absolutely NO IDEA what is going on!!! Nothing is ever going to be explained, because there's no sodding explaination! Still, I can't help watching it, just to see what further absurdities they write in in order to make it all make sense, like the woman who, we suddenly find out, speaks English…
