Toon’s Lost Page

Summary

After Oceanic Air Flight 815 tears apart in mid-air and crashes on a Pacific island on September 22nd 2004, its survivors are forced to find inner strength they never knew they had in order to survive. But they discover that the island holds many secrets, including a mysterious smoke monster, polar bears, housing with electricity and hot & cold running water, a group of island residents known as “The Others,” and a mysterious man named Jacob. The survivors also find signs of those who came to the island before them, including a 19th century sailing ship called The Black Rock and the ruins of an ancient statue, as well as bunkers belonging to the DHARMA Initiative — a group of scientific researchers who inhabited the island in the recent past. Lost has won a Golden Globe, 9 Saturn Awards and 8 Emmy awards.

Toon’s Take:

A pioneering television show, that has captivated an enormous viewing audience over its past five years. A show based around brilliant mysteries and character conflicts, ‘Lost’ delivered such incredible intensity on TV that is simply unmatched… The basic outline follows the survivors of a plane crash over the Pacific Ocean that cast ashore on a beautiful island host to scientific marvels and unparalleled secrets. Many people are put off at the increasing overt science fiction angle but I would recommend this to everyone with my utmost sinister fervor. It is the best show to grace the screens of our homes, ever. The driving piece of this story would be the characters, some of which are the most captivating persona’s on television and experiencing the intense rivalries between them is pure bliss. The scientific mumbo jumbo with polar bears that expel giant black smoke monsters out of their ass is nothing more than a setting for the greatest show on television.
(Disclaimer: Last part is not really something that happens on the show, well…)
