The first season of LOST was a brilliant depiction of people who crash-land on a mysterious island and try to figure out where they are, WHO they are, how will they survive the island and how will they survive each other. Very little was revealed about the island itself, which left many viewers, well, lost. Then came the second season: and though it was entertaining, it progressed slowly and spent too much time merging the tailies with our core crew and figuring out who the 'others' were. Not to mention the seriously unpopular Ana Lucia character getting in the way - and on our nerves. But then at the end of the second season something BRILLIANT happened: the show got really exciting all over again. The whole 'hatch' mystery was resolved, we met The Others, and Ana bit the dust. And so season 3 begins: and I am basking in new revelations and new mysteries: it's as if the first 2 seasons SLOWLY built up to something BIGGER than just an island with a hatch: there is a whole community of people living on this island. AND there is a HOTTTTTT newcomer in the form or Rodrigo Santiago (or something like that). The show will air uninterrupted for 6 or 7 weeks, then take a hiatus before returning uninterrupted in February for the rest of the season. Hands down, LOST is the Best Drama on television.
