Part One: Live Together Die Alone
Season One: When I first herd of LOST I thought to myself: "How can you develop a show about a plane crash without it being a mini series?" So I didn't watch the pilot or any other of the episode during the first season. During the summer of 2005 I watched my first episode of LOST during a re-run of the show. It was the season one episode titled "Special" When Walt was attacked by the polar bear, and Locke and Boone found Claire. I was impressed but not hooked. Then I watched the season one finale "Exodus" and I thought to myself: "HOLY CRAP!" Watching that final scene with Jack and Locke looking down into that hatched got me hooked. Now I knew what everyone meant by asking "What's in the hatch?" When I first saw the pilot I thought I was watching a movie. With high intense action and cool special effects, the Pilot will go down in TV history. Season 1, to me, was themed around surviving the island and realizing that everything happens for a reason. I love a show where you really feel the character's emotion and start to feel for them. Early in the season Jack said "If we can't live together we're going to die alone." And at that moment I think the character started to realize that their going to be their for a while. Now obviously you can't just have people talking on beaches all day so the writers needed to keep things interesting. A polar bear on the island did just the thing. How does a polar bear end up on a tropical island? What is knocking down the trees at night? Who are these other people on the island? What is in the hatch? These are just a small amount of questions that were asked during the first season. It was these questions that kept the story going and the audience wanting more. The cast of the show couldn't be better. One of my favorite characters is John Locke played by Terry O' Quinn. Fantastic job. You could never tell if he was good or bad. He is like the Alan Grant of LOST. He may be old but he can throw knives, shoot guns, and put bacon on the table. And of course Matthew Fox, Evangaline Lilly, Josh Holloway, and everyone else was great. The only problem I had with an actor was Maggie Grace. She played her part good I guess I was annoyed by her character.
If you have read other reviews by me you'll know I like to rate things up to 10 so LOST is a Definite 10!!!
Now obviously I know I don't have to do my review in parts but I'm running out of time and I want to submit my review on September 22.
