This post is LONG overdue, so my appologies. Even after a crazy LOST marathon like the one we completed the other week, you’d think we’d be tired of LOST at this point… but NO. I’d probably do it all over again if only I had the vacation days to spare… and then there’s that whole “looking like a big degenerate” thing.
By now Alex, Mike and myself have a unique perspective on LOST having just watched every episode back to back over a 94+hr period. An achievement which to date has never been matched by anyone in the history of the world! So THANK YOU LOST for being intriguing and just fucking awesome enough to withstand 94hrs of you (actually it was really 87hrs of pure LOST watching, the other 7hrs were our Guinness 5min/hr breaks).
People keep asking us whether we managed to soak in every moment of LOST and for the most part I “think” we did. Yes, towards the end and about 85hrs of little sleep my brain was misfiring, Mike repeatedly walked into a wall thinking it was the restroom till the bartender redirected him, and our tempers were attached to a somewhat short fuse. The main thing sleep deprivation and 94hrs of TV watching did was blur together the lines between episodes, but I think that could also be more a testament to how cohesive the entire LOST story is than how brain-muddled we might have been. I was surprised and impressed with how well LOST flowed together from the moment it began right up to the end. All 94hrs felt like one giant cohesive story, elegantly and meticulously woven together. Again… thank you LOST! (more…)
