So it has finally came.... It is now time for the final season of LOST to begin on ABC starting this Tuesday. I love the show but if you have never seen the show, you may not understand, but please here me out....
There shall be ABSOLUTELY NO TALKING while LOST is in play. This is the sole reason I will not partake in any viewing parties. If I would partake in any viewing parties, I would bring my own TV, a cable splitter and run the feed into the bathroom or closet... NO INTERRUPTIONS. Now I do love joining in on the lively discussions of the latest questions and mysteries of the island and plot, but in order to fully grasp what happened during the episode, there needs to be complete silence with no interruptions.
IF and that's a big if, I were to attend a viewing party, everyone must be caught up. During the episode there is no need for silly questions about, "What's that statue?" or "I thought Locke was alive, is he?" There are a million questions with LOST and you should assume my answer would be "I don't know."
With all of that said, I am excited to see what the final season has in store. With the abrupt ending of last season, the gate (or hatch) is blown wide open.... they could all be dead, they could all be in the 70's still, they could all be in the present time on Flight 815, and it goes without saying, that they could also be anywhere on the planet too. Who's to say they haven't been placed in the middle of the Sahara Desert in Tunisia.
Another thing I would like to point out, during season 4 I read spoilers for that season.... worst mistake EVER!!! It ruins the show and you loose the climax that is LOST. If you read spoilers and enjoy that, please keep them to yourself.
Anyways, needless to say, the sixth season has to have more answers than questions because for the last 5 seasons we have been left with cliffhangers at commercial breaks leaving us yelling at the TV. I wish you the best in your LOST journey, and if you would ever want to chat over coffee or some DHARMA drinks let me know!! Have a good one!
