LOST

If you've never seen this show, you've at least heard about it. In my opinion, when it concludes in 2011, it will go down as one of the great shows of all time. I think what makes it so great is how deep it got on such a simple premise: plane crash on an island, people are stranded, no one can find them. Sounds like Gilligan's Island Redux, right? Wrong. Quickly in the first episode you find out that The Island is a character itself, and away we go. Four years later and I still can't wait to see what they will unearth next. Its a great mix of character acting and unsurpassed show mythology. So, if you've been a little slow on the uptake, get a Netflix account and catch up. You have until January 21 before it starts all over again:

I think that the number of questions introduced in this show so far outweighs the number of questions that they are going to have a hard time wrapping things up. I'm putting in a prediction that the last few episodes will be filled with marginally nonsensical expository pseudo-dialogue and flashbacks.

i'm not sure i agree. they had a complete story arch they wanted to tell when they started. now, they obviously won't be able to satisfy everyone, but the fact that they've been able to set an end date and finish their story, i think, will allow them to tie a nice, pretty bow on it. pretty by Lost standards, of course...
