Enjoyable at first, until you work out what ABC are up to
I watched the first few episodes to see what all the fuss was about. It was enjoyable until it twigged what is going to happen. Dominic Monaghan, on The Jonathan Ross show even confirmed it himself, after I had the thoughts. It totally put me off watching the series any further than a few episodes on series one.
What am I talking about? Well the blatantly obviousness of money. ABC were unsure how Lost would go down, but it's been a big, huge hit. Dominic Monaghan confirmed on The Jonathan Ross show that the writers know how the show will end. They have an end story and it could of ended it in series 2 but because the show is so huge, ABC have said "You can't end it now, we are making so much money out of this. We need to drag it out of 10 series". And that is exactly why I stopped watching.
The show if enjoyable yes. But when you realise that all the weirdness and oddness is simply ABC's choice, to drag the show out for as long as people like it, to make more money. You realise that most weird bits have no relation to the story at all and are fillers, it totally puts you off. Totally ruins the enjoyment of it. So I stopped watching.
If you don't mind all this, you may like it. But I got sick of the filler episodes, clearly designed to drag the show out.
