I’m a Lostie. I just couldn’t help myself: after watching the pilot episode six years ago, I was hopelessly hooked. I’ve never invested this way in a television show, with intrigue and tears and wonder. People around me have been talking about tonight, the final season premier for days and days. People are freakishly obsessed. I admit that I will be unreachable tonight while the show airs, because if you miss even a moment, you could miss something vital!
As much as I adore LOST, I have to wonder: if we invested in people, in each other, as much as we invest in our favorite television shows or sports teams, wouldn’t our little world be a more beautiful place? More often than not, I think our priorities get a little lost.
