Anyone on here ever watch this show?
The first time I watched it was in the summer of 2010. It was a pretty miserable summer. Then I came across the IMDB page for Lost and decided to check it out.
There are 6 seasons, 114 episodes, I watched every single one in less than a week
I literally did nothing that entire week but lay in my bed and watch episode after episode
It was the first time in a lonnnnnnng while that I was actually seriously happy and excited to wake up
My record was watching like 30 hours straight
I think the reason I liked it so much is because of the characters in it
A group of strangers crash on this mysterious island. We come to find out that all of these people who crashed are good, kind-hearted people, but had very hard and sad lives back home. One of the characters, John Locke, was paralyzed from the waist down for 4 years. He was miserable, had no life, friends, family, stayed in at home all day watching tv. Then he crashed on the island, and suddenly regained the ability to walk again. He became whole again, and without giving away any spoilers, found a purpose on the island. He finally had a reason to actually get up the morning
I just connected to this character a lot, because it's a lot like what I feel. I consider myself to be a kind person, but I'm broken, sad, miserable, and all I want is a reason to wake up in the morning again
Which is why I am going to spend the rest of my life sailing the Pacific Ocean, until I come across an island filled with mysteries, and this is how I will live the rest of my life
But really though
Amazing show, definitely one of the happiest times in my life was watching it
