Who else thinks that the hype around the TV series Lost is getting too much? I know that my opinion on it is well different from the majority's, but I have one thought about this series that sums it up for me: It reminds me of a movie that's dragging on for too much. Plus, I don't think it's necessarily a sign of intelligence and arcane wit to compose a series of present storytelling, flash backs, and forward looks; if overworked, these techniques are confusing and avoid a clear course of things. I have tried in earnest to worm my way into it several times, but I have never succeeded. Okay, probably the problem is that getting into a series at season 4 and 5 out of 7 is an endeavour bound to fail, but so far, two or maybe three episodes of a series have been sufficient to put me on a level which enabled me to understand the following episodes. Not so with Lost. Four episodes later, I was still defibering story threads, sorting persons and trying to get an image. End of rant. Probably I should pick up on afternoon shows. One life to live could be good for beginners, right?
