    All this talk about LOST made me want to watch it again. I put in the 3rd season as it was last point I left off when I was re-watching it again. LOST will always be in my Top 5 all time favorite TV shows.

    Another show everyone should watch is Game of Thrones!!! I can already say it will also be in my Top 5 for the rest of my life. I can agree on Breaking Bad being an excellent show. Also, Justified is an amazing show as well.

    Never had any interest in lost until I was really bored and watched the 1st episode on netflix. Then I was addicted. I ended up finishing the 1st season in 1 day. I got my gf addictied to it too, and we watched the entire series in about a month or 2.

    It gets kinda wierd at the end, but overall it is a great show. Great job of developing characters that the viewers can relate to. Watching it on Netflix is dangerous though bc they always end the episodes with some mystery and it is just to easy to click on the next episode ... before you know it its 3am and you've been watching since 6pm

    We have NetFlix at the house, and my wife has been tethered to the inside of the house after some dental work. When I got home Friday she had picked up LOST, and was into season 2 at that time. She went back to season 1 for me, and I watched about 10 episodes over the past couple of days.

    Good show, with a pretty well written script, at least from what I have seen. It kind of reminds me of a cross between Gilligan's Island and Jericho (pretty far apart, but that is how I look at it).

    TJ, I would recommend following this....my wife has moved well through season 2, and is still very interested. Her judgment on shows is pretty reliable IMO.

    Again, LOST is incredible, will likely be my favorite series of all time.

    Props to whoever mentioned "The Constant", I recall the episode off the title alone! Unbelievable.

    How are some of you guys watching one season in ONE DAY?!?!?

    That's over 17 hours for the first season. It took me a week and I felt like I was watching at every free moment I had.

    I don't think they are literally doing it in one day. but I used to power through Smallville and 24 seasons in a day and a half.

    Still though...

    Yea, I finish seasons very fast... 24, Breaking Bad, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Dexter.

    But it takes at least three days for me and it feels like that's as quickly as anyone could possibly watch them.
