So basically I'm about 10 years behind everyone else on, well... pretty much everything. Today I started watching the first season of Lost. For anyone who happens to just now be coming out of a decade long coma and missed the entire series like I did, here's my quick capsule synopsis so far (Caution! Spoiler Alert!)...
Okay, there's this airplane and it crashes on a tropical island. And everyone dies except a bunch of supermodels who just happened to survive essentially unscathed. But to make the show realistic and appeal to people in the midwest, the producers also threw in a really fat kid and a creepy old guy who looks like Gene Hackman. Good move.
One of the supermodels is a doctor, another supermodel is a fugitive from the law, another supermodel is a dick with a southern accent, another supermodel is a guy who looks like a terrorist but I don't think he is, another supermodel is pregnant, another supermodel is a brother/sister tandem, another supermodel is an abusive Asian husband/wife tandem, another supermodel is a labrador retriever, etc.
Oh, and Merry from Lord of the Rings crashed on the plane too. But I think the plane crashed after Lord of the Rings was already finished filming. So that's good, because otherwise they would probably have had somebody like Keanu Reeves or Mel Gibson or Denzel Washington play the part of Merry. And that would have just been weird.
Oh, and apparently bigfoot lives in the jungle on the island. But I haven't seen him yet so I can't confirm this. It's either bigfoot or they were filming Jurassic Park there at the same time.
Oh, and nobody ever gets hungry or goes to the bathroom.
I'll keep y'all informed as I watch and learn more. I bet somebody is gonna have sex at some point.
And then when I'm completely finished reviewing the entire series of Lost, I'll get started right away on season 1 of American Idol and let you know what happens.
