    Ok, Alias fans out there, Mr. J.J. Abrams has dished up yet another delectable delight to entertain us on a weekly basis until Li'l Miss Bristow returns to the scene in January on ABC.


    "Lost" airs Wednesday nights and I have to say that after the first four episodes, I'm hooked.


    Basic premise: Plane en route from Sydney (in honor of the aforementioned Miss Bristow???) Australia to LA crashes on a 'deserted' island. 48 of the passengers survive the crash and must then survive each other as well as the wicked wild of their newfound home on mystery island.

    Catch: The plane had lost communications mid-flight and had changed course to land. So, bottom line, they're 1000 miles off course, so anyone looking for them, is looking waaaaaay in the wrong place.


    Catch #2: Something (animal/beast/monster) lives on the island and can be heard/seen thrashing about amongst the island's foliage.


    This is a VERY character-driven show, and each episode gives us another character's perspective, not only on the crash but events in their own lives leading up to their presence on the flight itself.


    Mystery, suspense, and action abound as each episode progresses and the situation becomes more and more dire.


    Two thumbs & two big-toes up for this piece of escapism.

    I just wish it wasn't on the same time as Smallville. I'll just have to catch up on it when they play reruns.

    Mr. Yakuza caught Mr. Gouged by da pig with his daddy-in-law's $20k Rolex on, and accused him of thievery. But...since no one else on the island speaky dee Japaneezy, he was SOL and got shackled to some wreckage.

    Oh yeah...he was the pilot on Morpheus' ship that needed to believe in him, and was married to what's-her-mocha-hottie, who took on the sentinel droids bare-handed with butch-chick...

    Wrong 'mocha-hottie'. ;) Aaliyah was supposed to be Niobe, and Jada stepped in after her death. Zee is Link's wife. :)

    This show has me hooked. What do you all think the big "monster" is? Dinosaur seems an obvious choice but I think King Kong or the Abominable Snowman would be more fun. Plus the pilot wasn't eaten--just dead. I have heard that it isn't supposed to be anything supernatural. But in any case the longer they keep it an unknown the better.

    Well, JJ has specifically poo-poo'd the Dino-idea in recent interviews. Doesn't seem carniverous, since it didn't eat the pilot (poor Weiss), or the knife-salesman gone walkabout, I'd probably lean more towards the giant gorilla thoughts. Still not sure what to make of the polar bear, though...

    Yay for the Hobbit kicking the habit!

    I wonder who whacked Said? (Sa-eed) Probably Mr. knife man as I would think he would not want to leave the island since it Healed him.
