I LOVE LOST
Are you a fan of LOST? I think it continues to be the best show on TV. Never a boring moment and I feel so connected to the characters and their lives on the show. There is someone on the island for everyone to connect to. They all have their different life stories, different struggles and triumphs, and when they come together on the Island they are forced to put their own needs and wants aside. They have to unite in order to survive! I find myself crying in nearly every episode! The writing and acting is so good that you actually feel pain when they feel it and you feel joy when they find a moment of happiness. I just love it! Jack and Kate are my favorite's of course. Their story always keeps me wanting more. Kate frustrates me sometimes, but I love her and Jack together. When Jack is on the Island he reminds me of my husband. When he's off the island not so much, but I still love his story. He struggles just like everyone else, but when he overcomes his faults he shines! My playlist song for Jack and Kate is song #1 Back in God's Hands.
The most devastating but rewarding moment for me was when Charlie died. I was upset for months, but he did die a hero! In his life before the crash he had lost his way, got into drugs and drinking, and was so selfish. His experience's on the Island changed him back into the person he truly was. He ended up giving up his life to save those he loved and redeemed himself in the end. He was able to die without shame and was at peace with himself. It's a classic hero story and actually gives hope to those who really do feel lost in life. My playlist song for Charlie is song #2 Lifeline.
I think the character who is the most fascinating is John Locke. He was paralyzed before he came to Island, both physically and emotionally. He had been taken advantage of in life by both his mother and father. He was orphaned as a child and virtually left to fend for himself. He faced so many trials and struggled with self value. Once on the island his legs worked again and he was able to walk. With that came his inner strength. He started to search for his purpose and began to feel like he had a place in the world. He does some of the craziest stuff and I don't understand him at all, but deep down I think he is truly good and has true intentions to help others. People don't know if they can trust him, but in time I think they will find that he has been right all along and that he is special. His story is one we can all relate to. We want a purpose and we want to know what it is. We might stumble and make mistakes in our quest, but in the end we will succeed. My playlist song for Locke is song #3 C'mon, C'mon. And even though I didn't talk about Sawyer - I think he needs a song, don't you? My playlist song for him is song #4 Little Sparrow.
I wait every week for Wednesday night to come and when it does I get LOST.
