My Tribute to LOST!
We missed the big celebration with the Aguiar's Sunday night, so they had us over Monday for the encore. It was the perfect ending to LOST. Yikes, I was 24 when the show began (don't do the math), I remember that Alias had ended and there were a million previews for this new show by JJ Abrams. Ha ha, I had no idea what I was getting myself into.
LOST became a link to others; friends (new & old), family and even strangers. It was GREAT entertainment; suspense, love, comedy, joy and that title sequence sound could send a good chill up my spine. It became weekly parties first with roommates & friends, then with the Aguiar's. It was yearly season marathons with my family as the new DVD's came out. It was a trip to Hawaii.
A lot of people lost interest with the show as the questions compounded each week and that awful writers strike! Boo! I couldn't give up on the show though, I refused to believe that all of these questions wouldn't be answered.
The end has come and well, not all of my questions were answered. But it's okay! LOST ended beautifully. Without going into detail, I'll simply say that though it took me watching the finale three times (once by myself, once with the Aguiar's and once with my Mom), I couldn't be happier with the outcome of LOST. My heart is happy, I feel like I can close this chapter. HAHA, I know some of you might be rolling your eyes and saying, "Ela it was just a show." UGH, I know it sounds silly, but for me it's played a small part of my life over the last six years. I still can't believe it has all ended! On to bigger and better things I suppose, but I will always remember some of the GREAT times I've had with LOST.
A Few of My LOST facts:
Favorite Male Characters - Hurley & Desmond & Charlie & Jin
Favorite Female Characters - Toss up between Rose & Penny & Sun
Favorite Episode - The Constant w/ Desmond & I must say the Series Finale.
LOVED all of the nicknames Sawyer had for people!
Thought that Kate whined too much (not only as her character, but the actress too).
If I had to choose between Sawyer or Jack, Sawyer would win!
Saddest death scene for me was when Sun & Jin died.
Will always have a soft spot for the song, "You All Everybody!"
