my husband and i are total squares. we never catch on to the latest thing when it is popular. i guess we're a little slow on the uptake. we still have raging will smith dance parties in our kitchen. getting jiggy with it and such. it is horribly embarassing. i already feel bad for our future children. they don't stand a chance of being cool. maybe that's okay though. anyway, several months after the series finale of lost we decided to check the first season out of the library and see what all the hoopla was about. well, the first season led to the second and the next thing we knew we would lock ourselves away for entire weekends trying to cram in as much lost as possible. it was both sad and awesome. one day we finished the series (i both loved and hated the ending but it is way too confusing and boring to explain why) and we wondered what we were going to do with ourselves. showering and socializing seemed like way too much effort so we decided to go in a different direction: watch lost again with my sister and brother in law (we'll just call him bil). so now, every month and a half or so we have a lost night at our place. we order pizza and knock out four episodes at a time. my husband loves it. he sends out previous episode recaps the week before to get everyone up to speed.
this past friday night was a lost night. we had a coupon for two two topping extra large papa john's pizzas and showed those babies no mercy. then we watched two episodes, ate thin mint ice cream and watched two more. it is so fun watching it with people who have never seen it before. their questions and observations are interesting. apparently watching it with my sister is like watching it with me. i'd get frustrated when there were more questions than answers, declare that i wasn't watching any more because it was too frustrating and then beg for one more episode. the question of the night is whether henry gale is good or bad. it is questions like these that keep them coming back for more and is a good excuse for me to continue to enjoy thin mint ice cream. seriously, it is so good (lost and the ice cream).
did you watch lost? what did you think?
