Absolutely love Lost, I have all 5 season DVD sets as well. Been waiting for tonight for months! There's a sadness that comes along with that though....while on the one hand it will be great to finally have the biggest answers/mysteries revealed, it's going to be hard to see it go when it's done in a few more months.
Lost has been one of the most awesome shows I've ever seen in my entire life, because it's the closet thing you can ever get to having a full length captivating novel brought to life on television I've ever seen, in addition to the fact that it's something truly *different* from all the other crap reality shows or shows based on law firms or hospitals or a bunch of real life scenarios that I can't even begin to fathom why anyone watches. I watch television or movies to escape reality for awhile, not to revel in more of it. I get enough 'real life' already in an every-day capacity. And I've always laughed at all the impatient whiners who try and hate on the show because it introduces questions/mysteries and doesn't spoon-feed people the answers quickly enough for them. No truly great book worthy of reading does that, and while I understand you can read a book from start to finish in a few days, I love the notion of having it brought to life via a television series like this. It's been the ultimate 'water cooler' show with me and several co-workers for years now.
