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?
