When I first saw LOST advertised on TVs and magazines, I honestly had no idea what to expect. One possibility was that this was another shipwrecked sitcom with a very short future, if anything more than a few series'. However, the show surpassed everything I thought it would be. The plots are thick, convoluted and never give too much away. The actors are superb because they make each character they play very believable. My favourite actor in the show is Sawyer, because of his could not care less attitude and is extremely gifted in how he plays the smirky creep one second, and then the troubled boy the next. Kate (Evangeline Lily) and Shannon (Maggie Grace) are also extremely great actresses, both very believable. The last time I saw Naveen Andrews (Sayid) was in The Karma Sutra, and the role he plays in this completely eradicates what he did for the erotic movie. All in all, I'm fascinated by this show and simply can't wait to discover what is within the shaft. Everbody I know has their own theory about the show (i.e. the characters are in purgatory) but frankly, I think the content of the show is enough to keep it going for years. Hell, I wish I had a part on it! One thing though - the Region 1 version is cheaper, and you can pick up a multi-regional player for 20 quid from Superdrug!
