So I didn’t come on board with LOST until I watched the season six premiere with its promises of Ian Somerhalder, whose…body of work I’ve come to admire since he began playing Damon on The Vampire Diaries. I realized after watching it that I’ve really missed out on something. I had no freaking clue what was going on, and I wanted to find out. But that meant I had five whole seasons to get through, and part of the sixth. In late February, I began. Really, I expected to make it through season one and lose interest.
Uh…no. That wasn’t what happened at all.
As I became more and more enamored, my goal became clear: I needed to catch up in time to watch the series finale when it airs. I hated the fact that I didn’t begin watching in 2004. But considering that I still find myself confused over who knows what and what happened when, it’s probably good that I watched the entire series over the span of a couple of months, instead of a span of six years. Who knows what I would have forgotten by now if that were the case?
Anyway, I’m happy to announce that I just finished episode eight of season six. I’ve got the next one queued up and I’m about to dive in. I’m well on my way to achieving my goal; in fact, I’ll probably be caught up by Tuesday, when the newest episode airs. It’s been one hell of a ride, and one I’m glad I took.
And I owe it all to Ian Somerhalder, of course. ;)
