Lost

Has anyone else seen the Lost network pilot (i.e. it'll be on file sharing networks, but the actual show doesn't air until September in the US).

Either way, I recommend it to anyone.

I was sceptical, thinking it wasn't my thing. The broad premise I knew: a plane crashes, people are stranded on an isalnd. I then expect people catching fish, skinning rabbits, building huts and leaders being chosen.

And indeed while some of that sort of happened, and is bound to happen in the series, I'm glad it wasn't overly so.

But I got really engrossed in it, and was certainly left wanting more. It's not the clear-cut programme that I thought it would be (I won't say anymore, you can wait and see). But I suppose the fact that Alias isn't any normal spy drama, maybe this won't just be any old castaway.

(For those that don't knw, it's created and written by J. J. Abrahms who created Felicity and Alias).

It was nice to see Emilie De Ravin and Ian Somerhalder. There's a good mix of characters. And with the exception of one *really* hammy acting moment, it's very good.

The plane crashing stuff... well, it was certainly testing my hypnotherapy that I'm having to cure my fear of flying!

All in all: watch it. Roll on September, I'm curious to where this show goes.

Re: Lost

You don't Antony.

I've never seen it except for some clips of the crash. I really don't like disaster movies, too many innocent people die. I don't watch 'Towering Inferno', 'The Posiden Adventure', 'Titanic' and the like.

Give me a good violent movie where the bad guys all die horrible lingering painful deaths.

Suffice to say that a plane crash is central to the premise and it is based on a true story. However, the plane crash is not sensationalistic bit that got the book a huge amount of coverage back in the 1970's.

People with "issues" regarding air travel are in one of the several groups of people who should probably avoid that movie.

I've seen the pilot. It's very well done, and I'm already looking forward to the next episode.

The end.

Re: Lost

You left out that they were just a couple of miles from a luxury lodge full of food.

Re: Lost

This is actually a series that I'll probably start watching, at least to start off with. If it starts going downhill or getting rediculously stupid, I'll quit watching it, but for now I plan on watching it. The previews and Antony's viewing has intrigued me.

Re: Lost

It seems to me that J.J.Abrahams it's a man with many talents.
I don't know about Felicity (and don't want to).
But I'm big fan of Alias and after I watched this pilot I'm very impressed.
He knows how to hold you with your eyes on the screen.
He also composed the main theme for Alias and will direct Mission Impossible 3. Not bad.
