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.
