The famous TV series Lost has recently just ended. It started airing on ABC last September 22, 2004 & ended last May 23, 2010. I can’t believe that I really watched each & every episode of Lost for 6 long years. That’s a total of 6 beautiful, exciting seasons. Since I live in the Philippines, I was only able to watch Lost on my laptop 🙂
Lost’s story evolves around a group of survivors whose plane (Oceanic flight 815) crashed in a mysterious island. During the course of the season, I was actually a bit lost with the storyline. Thus, the title “Lost” actually meant me being lost too with what was happening in the TV series. It also meant the survivors being lost in an island.
When I finished the last episode of Lost, it was then that I was finally no longer lost with the storyline. I have to admit that I had to seek help to understand the plot better. I asked a colleague who finished the series, I also searched through the net but it was this video that finally made me understand the story, and the video below is definitely one of the most unique summaries to LOST that I have seen yet. I hope it also helps those who haven’t seen the show, or still don’t understand the plot.
The series has a large cast but I would say my favorite would always be Sawyer (played by Josh Holloway). Well, mainly because he is hot, hot & hot! Any complaints? hehehe!
Here are the main cast:
- Jack Shephard (Matthew Fox)
- Kate Austen (Evangeline Lilly)
- Hugo “Hurley” Reyes (Jorge Garcia)
- James “Sawyer” Ford (Josh Holloway)
- John Locke (Terry O’Quinn)
- Sayid Jarrah (Naveen Andrews)
- Jin Soo Kwon (Daniel Dae Kim)
- Sun Hwa Kwon (Yunjin Kim)
- Claire Littleton (Emilie de Ravin)
- Charlie Pace (Dominic Monaghan)
- Benjamin Linus (Michael Emerson)
- Juliet Burke (Elizabeth Mitchell)
- Desmond Hume (Henry Ian Cusick)
I’m just glad that even though Lost was one of the most expensive TV series in history, it was still successful enough to actually complete the story. I somehow feel bad that a lot of other TV series was just axed because of low viewers turnout. Really glad Lost was able to retain 11 million viewers till the end. This was I think the 1st TV series I was able to watch from start to finish. Here’s a quick summary of each season.

Lost was definitely one of the best TV series I have ever watched! One of my top 10 definitely! Hope you were able to catch it too. If not, you might want to buy their complete DVD set. It’s worth it 🙂
My Rating for Lost: 5 out of 5 stars.
