We have had the strangest New Year celebration this year. Since morning till late night, I and my husband, sat devouring the mystery TV series ‘Lost’ with relish. We texted ‘Happy New Year’ to most of our loved ones, called up a few, finished house work at a super fast pace… just to get ‘Lost’.
A friend of mine had told us that ‘Lost’ was one of the most popular mystery series of all times back in 2000s and we went for it right after Christmas. Since then, we have been watching, eating, drinking and sleeping ‘Lost’.
The little ones are getting freaked out by our weird newfound love for TV but we can’t help it. Every episode leaves us wanting for more. The great thing is the series got over in 2010 and it is all available on Netflix. So, we just need to keep watching non-stop till we reach season 6. And then we will know the secrets of the island where Flight 817 crashed and the fate of survivors. From what I have heard, the serial had lasted for 10 long years, that means… a lot of watching!
Initially, the series reminded me of the popular Manoj Kumar film ‘Gumnaam’ but by the time we reached Season 3, I knew it was different from any other film or serial.
The ensemble cast, the dialogues and the great twists and turns are superb. Hats off to the writer!
The characters I am most impressed with are the dimpled rogue, Sawyer, Hurley Burly and Jack, the doctor dude.
And here are some of the memorable drawls by Sawyer if you want to recall those ‘Lost’ days:
Sawyer to Kate: “Baby, I am tied to a tree in the jungle of mystery. I just got tortured by a damn spinal surgeon and a genuine Iraqi. Of course I’m serious.”
Sawyer to Jack: “A doctor playing golf. Woo, boy howdy! Now I’ve heard everything. What’s next? A cop eating a doughnut?
Sawyer, after squashing a tree frog in his hand: “Add a little ranch and it’ll taste just like chicken.”
Sawyer to Sun: You gonna lecture us about lying, Betty? From the look on his face even your old man here didn’t know you speak English!”
Well, well, well….I hope you know we just need to reach season 6 to get our curiousity quenched. Till then… I don’t mind ‘getting lost’. 🙂
