The random thoughts of a man constantly staving off hypothermia and wolves.

Hi, my name is Brandon, and I'm a Lost addict
Ah, Lost. I only watched one episode during its first three seasons, and though I thought it was really good, I didn't want to get into the whole thing. My sister Amy has been hugely into the show for a long time, and is constantly harping about how great it is, but I didn't want to get stuck with 3 million questions and no answers, so I stayed away.
Last summer I found myself with a solid six-week break from school. So I decided, what the heck, I'll see what all the fuss is about. I started a free month-long trial with Netflix and ordered the first half of Season 1.
I think it took about three episodes to hook me and Mandi. We ended up watching every single episode of seasons 1-3 between August 1st and 31st. That's 69, 42-minute episodes over 30 days.
That's a lot of absorb in such a short amount of time. I spent the next two weeks combing the internet for theory sites and reading about things I'd missed, like The Lost Experience. Then I sadly resigned myself to the fact that I wouldn't be able to see any new episodes for at least three months and moved on with my life.
Well that time has come! Season 4 starts January 31! Okay, so it's three weeks away, but still.
Here's a promo for it:
And in case you've forgotten what happened in Seasons 1-3, here's an excellent (and hilarious) eight-minute recap:
I'm a graduate from BYU-Idaho with a degree in Communications with a print journalism emphasis. I currently work as a test engineer for a software company. I've been married for seven years and have three kids.
