"OK. You see, we did crash, but it was on this crazy island. And we waited for rescue, but there wasn't any rescue. And then there was a smoke monster. And then there were other people on the island. We called them, the others. And they started attacking us. And we found some hatches and there was a button you had to push every 108 minutes or, well, I was never really clear on that. But, the others didn't have anything to do with the hatches, that was the Dharma Initiative. They were all dead, the others killed them. And now they were trying to kill us. Then we teamed up with the others because some worse people were coming on a freighter. Desmond's girlfriend's father sent them to kill us. So we stole their helicopter and we flew it to their freighter, but it blew up. And we couldn't go back to the island, because it disappeared. So then we crashed into the ocean, and we floated there for a while 'til a boat came and picked us up. And by then, there were 6 of us. That part was true. But the rest, but the rest of the people who were on the plane, they're still on that island."

I don't cover many US shows here on Nostalgia Filter. For the vast majority of the blog's existence, Lost was the only one. Lost was a show that I had picked up just before its final season, and my weird entry into its world allowed me a very different perspective. I began reviewing it from Season Four onwards, and I went back to the first three seasons, Star-Wars style. The last review was published at the end of 2014, and several articles from this series were published in the Take2Guide to Lost in September 2015.
