Advantages: Great storylines, characters.
Disadvantages: You have to watch again and again!
A truly special TV show for a number of reasons.
Please Note, I have tried my best to sum this whole TV show up without giving anything away such as spoilers.
Lost is based around a Plane crash, the survivors of the plane crash, their survival and the journey through discovering the island's secrets and the reason why they have all been brought together on one plane journey ending in a crash.
The plane crashes over 1000 miles of course with no reception. The survivors begin to know they may be here for some time. Mysteries about the island unfold around them, a man in a wheelchair can walk? Every action seems to have a reaction when it comes to this how, you solve all the mysteries and more come along to keep your mind challenged. It's hard to sum up the whole plot without giving it away. The character developments are fantastic and you discover along with the story-lines in Lost the characters actions, ambitions and reasoning has a much deeper meaning.
A doctor, A conman, A fugitive and a single mother are all included in the mix of the characters always touching on the most sensitive of subjects, you watch bad relationships shape them and you feel the warm buzz when you watch good relationships form and you genuinely feel their happiness and pain. The actors were all well picked for each role, each character can be a bit of a stereotype but each of them is loveable (Yes, even the villains)! With use of flashblacks, flashforwards and flashsideways A lot of secrets, motivators and personality traits are revealed to make you connect with each one of them and the whole six degrees of separation is always something to spot while watching.
The whole entirety of lost has many themes, it contains a lot of religious, philosophical, science related ideas. Rivalries, the rivalries for love and attention of somebody shape the main characters relationships (Love square anyone?) . Rivalries for leadership and respect. The old Fate Vs free will debate is huge in this series.
