Dear Lost Producers/Writers,

If you could see me right now, I would stand up and start clapping. Seriously. Bravo! Your season 6 premiere was AMAZING and it was everything I hoped for and more. My stomach was in knots during the entire jam-packed two-hour premiere, but it was the kind of nervousness you get when you meet up with a friend you haven't seen in a long time. Yes, I'm at THAT level of fanatic.

Let's start from the beginning. I started watching Lost when it first began. I sort of stumbled onto the first episode and was immediately sucked in. I stayed with the show through its ups and downs (I'm looking at you, season three) and I feel like I'm in the final stretches of a marathon. There's a sense of sadness that it's going to be over soon, but also a sense of relief at knowing I'll finally be finished. I think Lost is revolutionary television. I have never been so enmeshed and wrapped up in characters as I have been with the people on this show. I love Sawyer. When I was watching the show I told my boyfriend I eventually want to name a son Sawyer, because I LOVE HIM. I used to love Jack, but he's got so many freakin' issues that eventually even his being a doctor couldn't save him. I've always really been into Locke, too. Clearly, I'm a fan of the men that were cast in the show. But seriously, Terry O'Quinn as John Locke is one of the most multi-dimensional, subtly layered performances I've seen. That man is a master and it's like I can't take my eyes off him when he's on the screen. I feel this same way anytime I see Britney Spears or Beyonce perform, but that's a different entry. Don't let that invalidate my Lost opinions...apples and oranges, people.

So going into this last season I'm feeling very optimistic. I am now wondering about the alternate universes and Juliet's dying words (according to Miles) "It worked." I think this means that Juliet somehow knew about the alternate reality in which the passengers of Oceanic 815 actually land safely. I feel like a little kid at Christmas. I'm not kidding when I say Lost is something I think about throughout the week, not just when it's airing. Ugh, it's a bit of a sickness really. But at least I'm not dedicating this entire blog to it, right? Right? Yeah, I'm totally on the normal level of obsessed.

High Five,
