I've been sick, so I've been catching up on all my recorded TV. I've been recording every episode of Desperate Housewives because it's the #1 show, so I feel I should watch it; but I don't actually like it, so the episodes build up on the hard disk. I've also been recording Lost, but they've been building up because Lisa hates the show for some reason, so we don't watch it in the evening during our television watching time.

Lost is an interesting show. I like the format, where the events on the island provoke flashbacks to the characters' prior lives; which naturally makes you wonder if the island is some sort of purgatory where the survivors -- if they really did survive the plane crash -- have to deal with their unfinished business. I hope the writers don't go overboard with the buried locked room and the stranded crazy French lady and the monster ... too much mystery and the audience stops trusting you. I hope it's not all mystery for mystery's sake and there is a reveal somewhere down the road that will make coherent sense of the story.

No spoilers, please!

Thanks for reminding me, now I'm going to spend another waking night wondering what happened to "John Doe". :)

Lost has some of the best character development of any tv show currently running, and Desperarate comes a close second...and to think I was about to write ABC off for canceling Dharma and Greg and Spin City

Haven't seen either of these shows, which isn't surprising as I've all but given up watching TV. I record a few programs but rarely, these days, get to see them. I'm constantly playing catch-up.

Maybe just as well I don't write for TV as I wouldn't have a clue about what's hot or not and what might sell, although, maybe that would be a good thing.

Lost lost me rather quickly. Too many story lines, too many unsympathetic characters, and of course, too many mysteries. If I can loosely interpret the theme of this thread as "new shows that might repay our interest," then my money is on Battlestar Galactica, which has a good claim to being the best sci-fi TV series ever (with a special exception, of course, for Firefly, even though it was really a Western.)
