Tuesday, 11 May 2010 How it All Ends

I know it has its critics, but for my money Lost is the best TV show there has been for years, maybe the best ever, period. I’m a complete Lost apologist, no doubt about it.

I can’t begin to tell you how much I’m looking forward to (and also, to some extent, dreading) the final act.

With just 2 episodes left before the finale I find myself in a bit of a quandary. It usually airs on Tuesday in the States and Friday here in the UK, so we’re 3 days behind which is pretty good going for us Brits.

For the finale though, we’re going to be a full 5 days behind. So, the question is: is there any real chance I can avoid spoilers for that long, especially with something as eagerly anticipated as this?

No matter how hard I try to avoid the Net for a few days, you can pretty much guarantee snippets or even the whole shebang will sneak out somewhere when I least expect it.

Worse still, if I overhear a conversation on the bus revealing that it’s actually all a dream and the whole cast wake up in the shower being lathered up by a sparkly-eyed Bobby Ewing, I will not be happy.

I don’t really want to join the dodgy-download-brigade, so the only real alternative is to lock myself away in an isolation chamber and lose a week of my life.

I just hope it’s worth it.

I've never watched Lost. Maybe I should give it a try. : )

I'm staying far away from twitter between the US showing and the UK showing and I'm going to plug my ears with headphones and crank the music up loud when I'm on the bus.

I hope it's a satisfying conclusion.

Becca – I think it’s either a love or hate sort of thing.

Cate – Sounds like the best plan of action.
