After the character of Richard Alpert was first introduced on the show, a furious internet debate arose about whether or not Nestor Carbonell was wearing eyeliner onscreen. Carbonell revealed on the fifth season DVD extras that not only does he not wear eyeliner, mascara, or makeup of any kind to make his lashes and eyeline appear as dark as they do, but also the makeup artists for "Lost" actually use concealer on his lashes and under his eyes to try to tone down the natural darkness of his eyeline. He also said that the unusual appearance of his eyes caused him to get teased and bullied when he was a child. The writers, amused by the intensity of the debate, placed a reference to it in the series when Sawyer, who frequently applies nicknames to various characters, calls Alpert "eyeliner." See more »

Lost is a controversial show amongst fans. Many remember Lost for being too confusing at times, but those of us that stuck it out, and really got swept away by the story, found the ride to be more than worth it.
Lost, along with a couple of other shows, like The Sopranos, kicked off what myself and others like to call, "The Golden Age of Television." This refers to the time that many incredible shows, dramas mostly, were released, and enveloped fans everywhere. Other shows that are a part of this include: Breaking Bad. The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, and many more. Lost paved the way for shows like these. With amazing character development ahead of its time, it utilized the medium of television just as good, or better than the majority of shows before it. Sadly, this Golden Age is coming to an end, as more and more TV shows are made and the medium is quickly getting bloated. Only a few shows made during this period remain, such as The Walking Dead, Supernatural, Game of Thrones, and some others, but most are coming to an end relatively soon.
Lost, itself, is completely amazing, and pulls the viewer in immediately. The show has one of the best pilots of a series that I have ever seen; and is comparable to TWD's pilot, in how it pulls the viewer into the world of the show. This intriguing premise, is perhaps, one of the strongsuits of the series, and a large reason why viewers kept coming back. Lost features many things needed for a show of the Golden Age of TV, such as: great acting, incredible characters, and beautiful, emotional moments. Lost, as mentioned previously, is one of the first to capitalize on character development, and as a result, is better tuned for viewers that can just binge watch as opposed to those who watched live when the show was initially airing. The cast is also incredible, and the chemistry between them is electric on screen. Matthew Fox is a fantastic lead for the show, and Evangeline Lilly plays off of him perfectly. The dynamic between their characters, Jack and Kate is one of my favorites of any TV show, and adds to the weight of it. Another such parallel is the one between Jack Shepherd and John Locke; two phenomenal characters/actors playing off of each other spectacularly. This dynamic in particular held great thematic value for the show. There are many, many more of these dynamics mentioned here, and each one of them will grab you, and not let you go. The characters and their relationships are what will get you most invested in this show.
Many people have a problem with the ending, but if you understand it, you'll find it to be the perfect ending for the series, and it is really a beautiful bookend for it. Lost is one of the 3 shows I say that everyone should watch at least once in their life. The other two being Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead. If you love Lost as much as I do, check out these other two shows as well. They share many similarities, as Lost paved the way for the other two.
My Rating: 9.75/10
