It's been a long 9 months....

But tonight it's finally BACK!!!



Both Kristian and I are super excited for the premiere of LOST tonight. This is one of our favorite shows and pretty much the only show that we BOTH really look forward to watching.

We both have a special place in our heart for this show because it reminds us of a time when we grew much closer in our relationship.

Back in Dec. of 2008 Kristian had to have surgery on his neck for a Cervical Fusion. After the surgery he was required to stay at home for about 3 weeks. He spent the first week in a lot of pain. His mother would come over during the day to help take care of him and I went over at night after work for the night shift. I would make him dinner, do his laundry and keep him company. It was a time when we grew even closer and I think it's what solidified for him that I was the woman he wanted to spend the rest of his life with.

Prior to the surgery we were trying to think of ways to keep him entertained while he was stuck at home. I knew he had never watched LOST and being that it was one of my favorite shows I thought it would be a great opportunity for him to start watching it and catch up prior to last year's season premiere. As anyone whose seen the show knows, you can't just start watching this show midway through without being completely lost...pun intended.

So I went to blockbuster and rented the first 4 seasons for him, which he would spend about 12 hours everyday watching. He was hooked. To him it was like a REALLY long movie. He would even have dreams about it at night. I would watch with him when I went over after work and we had a great time together. He credits this with helping him to recover faster and keep his mind off the pain.

We then watched last season together every week and really looked forward to it. So needless to say we can't wait for tonight and to start up the obsession again. My only concern is that the Series Finale could very possibly end up airing while we're on our honeymoon in May.

Anyone else excited for the premiere tonight?

Hate to be blunt but no not really. I never got into it. Actually i never even watched a whole episode. I think i saw a clip and was lost from the start. Guess the name is perfect then, huh? Haha. Have fun watching with your lovah!

Yeah. I don't live in the U.S. so I'll have to wait until the episode comes to Brazil with subtitles, because like you and Kristian, my Alex and I watch it together. Actually, in our case, it was him that rent the show for me. So we watched together, but he doesn't speaks English (shame on me, an English teacher). I am so anxious to know if the bomb will explode and change things again. I wish everybody cool that died during the 5 seasons could have another chance. Specially Charlie, Boone, Alex, oh, everybody! And I miss Jack so much, hahaha. Last year Evie Lilly talked to me on Twitter. It was amazing. So, GO LOST

xoxox, Larysse.

Love lost. Being in Oz we have to wait AGES until it starts again here. It's fun having tv shows you like to watch together.

I am! And I spent the past two weeks watching seasons 1-5 because I've only watched it occasionally. However, today, I just managed to get through four episodes of last season, so there's a little gap. :-( I'm watching anyway... I'll finish season 5 tomorrow.

I've only seen one episode. It was really good actually, but for some reason I never went back and watched more. People do seem to love it though. Maybe I'll Netflix it!

Ela said...

Eek!!! I'm so excited. We had to miss it last night but we are watching tonight and I can't wait. Woot!!!! So stinkin' sad it's the last season but I can't wait to see how it all ends.

Iva said...

So funny...my bridesmaid is doing the same thing right now. She borrowed all my previous season's of the show to catch up and they have marathon weekends where her family will sit there and watch it for like 12 hours :)

I was super excited for the return but am not super excited for how it's unraveling so far this season. It needs to find itself again I think. Regardless, I have been a fan since the day it premiered and am even using the show to teach bible study lessons to a group of young 20 somethings :) There's a lot to learn about character, relationships and faith from the series.
