Lost: Is It Worth It?

I've caught up on pretty much all of the TV that I missed while I was gone, but the one show I can't get motivated to watch is Lost. I now have 9 unwatched episodes.

Any Lost viewers out there to weigh in on whether I should devote the time to watching it?

I'm in nearly the same boat. I started watching the first episode after the hiatus, stopped halfway through and now I have nine episodes on my Tivo. Do I need to watch them? Are they any good? Can I delete them and give up on this show because I just can't make myself care?

I am one episode behind in Lost (haven't watched last night's episode), but I definitely think it is worth it. Since coming back from their long break it has been immeasurably better. We have seen our old friends (instead of just Kate, Jack and Sawyer) and Terry O'Quinn is a superb actor. I think one of the problems with Lost before the break was that it was too focused on Kate and Jack, and they just got old. They are also probably the weakest actors on the show, so that didn't help.

A lot of people were turned off by last week's episode, but I kind of liked it. I won't ruin it for you, but I will say that you see some familiar faces, and that was nice.

I'm sure Isaac can chime in here as well.

I agree with Red Fraggle that (1) the show is worth watching, (2) I really liked last week's episode (which seemed to devide many), and (3) that Terry O'Quinn is a superb actor (as are the guys who play Ben and Desmond).

That is not to say the show has the excitement of season 1. Part of the problem with Lost is that now that we know all the main characters' back stories, it is hard to be too shocked by them. For example, how Locke was crippled or the (partial) story of Jack's tattoo or the familial relationship between two of the Losties, there just wasn't much drama to the revelations.

All that being said, the most important thing for the show and ABC is to decide soon how many more seasons the show will last so the writers can develop an arc to take the series to a fitting conclusion.

Actually, I thought I had read that they had decided how long the series would last, recently (maybe through season five)? But now that I look for confirmation, I can't find anything. I definitely feel like they are writing with more of a sense of where they are going than they were at the beginning of the season. But maybe that's just my imagination?
