If you're not a fan of 'LOST' then you will be LOST reading this post. I got hooked on the hit TV show 'LOST' before I arrived to Argentina but unfortunately even though they show it over here, I have missed every episode of the new season 4, because I keep forgetting to set the VCR to record it. Truth be told, I'm not even sure I know how to program this VCR since I thought that piece of technology was dead with the advent of easy to use TIVO-ish PVR's and DVD recorders etc, but had to revert to a second hand VCR, since my fancy digital tv PVR is not compatible over here.
My sister-in-law gave me a catchup DVD with the first six episodes of season 4 last night and although bleary eyed, I watched five of them (well 4.75 really as I fell asleep on the sofa). I watched the remaining 1.25 episodes today and I have to say, although still a big fan, I am completely 'LOST'!
Season 1 to 3 kept doing flashbacks to the past lives of the survivors. Season 4 is zipping to the future lives of 6 survivors who managed to escape 'The Island' and although I'm still interested, I fear they will run out of plausible interesting viewing material soon. I miss The Sopranos too! Does anybody know what's happening on Eastenders? What's your theory on 'LOST'? - Explain all, enlighten me in a comment below!

Don't worry Ellie, you'll hopefully be rescued in the next series!

Aha! So you are the world president of the Couch Potato club! I simply watch it because after 3 seasons how can I not find out what is going on. I haven't a clue! Now they've put it on at 9:30 at night, I rarely reach the last ten minutes. Persevere I will. How come John Lock can walk? Why was the cockpit found under the water? Who are the Others, why can't their women get pregnant, what's the Dharma initiative? what's the significance of the numbers? Who washes their clothes? Why aren't they sunburned? What do they use for toilet paper? Where's Walt? What's the black smokey stuff . and what's with the four toed statue foot? . .aww, see what you started!
See now you've started something!

Baino: Many good questions indeed! - particularly their impeccably well preserved clothes and hair styling.

Those water bottles that look in great shape despite being reused for months (mine fall apart after a week).

I wonder if they have Dharma deodorant & shampoo?

Interesting survey man. Can you insert one other option. "Live in Poland and own no tv- much to the detriment of your language learning and european football fixation?" Hope you had a good Easter :)

Thanks Shaunj. I'm more accustomed to cold Easters so it was a bit strange with blue skies, hot sun and humidity. You're probably better off with no tv - tends to turn you into a bit of a couch potato! Although if you have broadband then you could try this for your footie fix

Conortje: Yeah, that's doing my head in aswell - their getting a bit desperate for plot lines me thinks!
