Normally this is a book blog but today I would like to tell you about a T.V. series. Last ight the fial episode of "LOST" premiered on ABC. I would recommend watching the whole series if you haven't. It is a very interesting story of surival, adventure and faith. When LOST first started in 2004, it was seen as a T.V. show about a group of people planewrecked on a weird island. Now 6 years later , it has eveolved into a story of friends and believing in faith.

After their plane breaks in half over a pacific island, the suriviors of an Oceanic flight are left alone in the jungle, no help on the way. They soon find out that they are not on an average island. In the first episode, they shoot and kill a polar bear. They pick up odd radio messages and quickly realize that there are others on the island. The "others" are out to destory the surivors, headed by Ben Linus. A man who grew up on the island with a troubled past. A doctor named Jack Shepard takes charge. A girl namaed Kate Austin helps and trys to redeem herself for killing her step-father. A man called Sawyer fights within their camps and for love. A trouble Korean couple find that they trully love each other after the plane crash. A pregnant Australian woman trys to be happily in her new home, while a Iraqi named Syidi tries to help the others and prove to himself that he is a good person. Hugo, a lottery winner, trys to help everyone, he belives it'shis bad luck that the plane crashed. Then there is John Locke. Locke was paralyzzed fro the waist down, on the island he was able to walk. He was the only surivor who wanted to stay on the island. Over the time that they are on the island they face many enemies, including the other, and loose many firends. LOST is a story of a group of strangers coming together to surive. They come from all over the world, in different walks of life, but soon they all become part of a team. Other people throught the series emerg and join them or the enemy. In the end it is a brilliantly written story of good vs. evil. There has never been another show like "LOST" and probally unlike any i the future. Philosiphy, science, history and references to many other things are what make it so interesting. I would not recommend LOST to you if you like nice clean endings or lots of answers. You have to use your immagination a lot for LOST. In the end it is a true story of beileving. I thought that in the end it was touching but slightly confusing. I can't even begin to explain it because it is far to complicated and exciting. It is a series that each episode is like a chapter in a book, so you can't just pop in on it. There is time travel, flash backwardses, flash fowards, and flash side-ways. It is like reading a good book, you don't know what will happen until the end, and when it is over you miss it.
