I'm Andy and I'm from Cleveland, OH. I did not start watching Lost live until season 2. A friend of mine called and asked if I watch, and proceeded to hype the hell out of it. He'd never let me down before, so I figured I'd check it out. Season 1 had just come out on DVD, and I picked it up sight-unseen on a Friday night; I was done by Sunday morning, and completely addicted. Shortly after, my grandma had surgery, so she was sitting at home recovering and didn't have much to do, so I thought I'd bring season 1 over to maybe help pass the time. She finished it in 4 days and became addicted, and just in time for the season 2 premiere! Ever since then, Grandma and I watch it together every week.

I love all the nuances of the show, but my favorite aspect is the mythology. That's why my favorite episodes tend to be the Locke, Desmond, and Ben ones. I know that Lost is always touted as "a show about characters," and I agree to a point. But to me, it's a show about characters who are thrust into a strange mythology, and how they react to it. Without the mythology, it's just a bunch of people on an island, and it doesn't even last one season. My least favorite character is Kate, having finally surpassed Jack. If I never have to hear Jack yell at someone, or Kate say "I'm coming with you" ever again, I will be a happy guy. I was also never really keen on Michael's incessant yelling of "WALT!!!"

Season 1 and Season 5 are probably my favorites, as far as overall strength of the season, with Season 3 being my least favorite. Season 3 had too many boring, redundant flashbacks... it was like, "We get it: Jack tries to fix everything, Kate always runs, Locke is always betrayed, Hurley is unlucky, Charlie has a drug problem, Sayid is tortured about torturing people, Sun & Jin have marital problems... enough already!" That said, Season 3's good episodes are some of the best of the whole series. Not surprisingly, they were the ones centered around characters whose backstories hadn't been fleshed out as much as the main characters, like Ben, Juliet, & Desmond. I loved the time traveling aspect of Season 5; I thought it was a clever way to explore some of the Island's history in a different way. I'm still on the fence with regard to Season 6's "flashsideways" (I hate that term). It's interesting to see what would have happened (or, rather, DID happen, but in a different timeline), but unless it somehow converges with the main timeline, it will have been a waste. That said, I have complete faith in Darlton. :-)
