10-day Lost rewatch: Day 1

I know you're wondering how I have time to watch over 100 episodes in one day. I won't tell. However, there are about four conclusions you can deduce from the mere fact that I have the time. I'll let you think about that.

Although time should not be an issue, I'll be watching Avatar tomorrow and I may be gone around Christmas which means I'll need to watch extra episodes per day. My current plan is to watch 15+ episodes today to ensure that I have enough time in case I won't be able to watch any episodes at all on certain days. Barring any disasters, I'm positive I can finish the show in time.

The format for these posts will be a morning report, mid-day report, and an evening report. I definitely won't be reviewing any episodes, but I will post whatever random thoughts I have.

Morning Report:

I woke up really early and I'm on season 1 episode 5 right now. Compared to the new sci-fi shows in recent years, Lost simply blows them away. I've always thought that Lost was made up is it went along -- to an extent all shows are -- but I don't think it has hurt the show badly. Looking at these first few episodes and comparing them to what I remember of the later seasons, I think Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse had a general idea of where they wanted to go with characters and stories, and filled in the details later. Considering how amazing the show is, I don't think you can fault them.

Midday Report:

I took a really long break, so I'm only on season 1 episode 11. Nonetheless, I think I'll still be on track. Having Boone and Shannon as regulars made me miss them, and reminded me how their stories could have been so much better.

Evening Report:

I'm on episode 15 which puts me on pace, but I hope to squeeze in a few more episodes before tomorrow. I'm watching Avatar in the morning and writing a quick review (or long if I have lots to say). I like Tamara Taylor, but what the writers made her character do to Michael is beyond mean. Michael and Walt are already getting annoying, and in the back of my mind, I know there's much more coming up ahead. They are my least favorite part o the show and having just watched a Michael episode, I dread any more of his episodes.
