It was awesome
! I've been hooked since the premiere (which I had taped by accident...thank God!)! I had a feeling that we weren't going to get too many questions answered, though. It's so fun trying to figure out what's going to happen, and being completely wrong time after time.
People who are way
smarter than me, or have a lot more time than I do, really get into the symbolism and hidden clues. I've been going to some of the sites, and I'm amazed with what they come up with. Some of it I thought of, but most of it I never would have. They've looked up what each person's name means, figured out that Ethan Rom (the guy who took Claire) was an anagram for "Other Man", have drawn parallels between the show and the bible and other literary works. They also find the hidden "easter eggs" that are scattered throughout, like Hurley being on Jin & Sun's TV during their "back story". There's so much I don't catch.
And to think, when I first saw the promos for this show, I thought it was going to be some hokey "castaway with monsters" fluff thing that I had no
intention of watching!
