Before I begin, I would like to go over ‘Lost’ briefly in the following paragraph free of any spoilers or emotional outbursts for those who are uninitiated.
I feel like I need to do this, out of respect for what was once one of the greatest shows on television. It was above all, a character piece that brought together a very diverse group of individuals through a plane crash on a remote island. It is no secret that the island was mystical in nature and possessed many bizarre apparitions that challenged the personalities of the survivors. The driving force behind the excellence of this show was the chemistry and rivalries that occurred between the various characters. An iconic battle of intellects between a man of faith versus a man of science carried the show through its first two years. Through this time we discovered many coincidental connections between all the survivors through well executed flashbacks, incidentally reinforcing the words of the man of faith. Every character had a powerful back story, a painful dissolution in their history that brought them to this island as a means of salvation. Through much trial and pain, many of our characters grew and began to let go of their past life miseries and develop bonds of fellowship as they endeavored to survive on the island, and in some cases, leave the island.
