discussing, what I mean is, J explains to me what just happened and I feign interest while really falling asleep.
I find there are two categories of Lost viewer: those, like me, who watch languidly, only half understanding what's going on most of the time, every so often completely flummoxed, but are okay with that and have no burning desire to get to the bottom of it; and then there's those who are really into it, absorbing every tiny thing, piecing the story together, anticipating the revelations. There's a whole world of online Lost mania to be experienced, if you're so inclined.
For me, there's another reason to get pumped. My (not so) secret Lost crush - Sawyer. It used to be Jack but now he irritates me because he's a pompous ass. (It's okay - J has a (not so) secret Lost crush on Kate. Yeah, she's alright I suppose) So okay, even if I'm not completely up on what's happening, there's always Sawyer.
But, despite the excitement I'm somewhat irritated because once the show's over, it's over for almost a year. And I'm sure, in true Lost form, the writers will end the show on a cliffhanger. Which will result in me pulling a face (from confusion and too much wine) and yelling something at the TV.
