I quit watching season 3 with about 7 episodes to go. I don’t know why, I just did. I had them on my DVR, I just was in no rush to watch them. Then in a moment of momentary stupidity while cleaning my DVR of old programs to make room for new. I deleted the final 7 episodes. I didn’t even notice until I clicked ok for the finale what I had done.But I think that was a good thing. I downloaded the final 7 episodes and watched ’em via my 360 over the course of the last 2 days and it has renewed my love for the show. I just loved every bit of it. I actually teared up twice during the finale with Charlie’s swan song. I’ll check my “man card” at the door on my way out.
This show is so much better when you watch the shows back-to-back other than weekly. I also would get all into it and check rumor boards and whatnot, and I think that kind of ruined it for me as well. I liked just watching things unfold like a good book. Coming up with my own hypothesis and whatnot without being influenced by others.
Can’t wait for Season 4 now…though, much less enthused with it being shortened to just 8 episodes. I fear the writer’s strike could be the death knell for Lost.
Sidenote: Jack is still a horrible f’n character.
