My wife wanted to know what we could binge watch. We’ve tried Dexter, Orange is the New Black, Game of Thrones and Mad Men… with little success. Meaning, not really grabbing us. I’ve been suggesting Lost for quite some time, but my wife, like a lot of folks, just don’t want to give older shows a chance. Why? Dunno.

So she gave in this weekend, and wouldn’t you know, she’s hooked. Of course, the first episode will catch anybody’s attention.

I watched Lost when it originally aired and loved it. But I am in the same group of people that crapped on later seasons. I gave season 2 a chance, but quit about 2/3 into it and have not seen the rest. We shall see if things go better this time around.

So I remember some of the first season and those ‘surprises’ have lost a lot of its sheen. But I’m also remembering, Lost is a lot of hand held shaky cam. That is rubbing  me the wrong way. I’m hoping like hell that doesn’t continue through all 6 seasons.

I do notice something good by the binge watching vs. the old standard of 1 hour a week schedule. I love the instant access to the following episodes… especially the linear shows such as Lost. I truly love the commercial free viewings.

We’ll have to see if Lost can keep me through all 6 seasons, 121 episodes. That’s a lot of freakin time… and it’s summer. Told my wife, it’s pretty hard to sit down inside while it’s so nice outside.

Because the rest of us think you're an idiot.
