Watched it, won't be watching the second episode.

Can't stand stupidity in dramas and when the 'russians' turn up flying american helicopters, using italian firearms and wearing black when fighting on the ice it pushed me past my suspension of belief.

I feel obliged to stick up for Lost whenever people lay into it - I loved it from start to finish

Also, the island wasn't purgatory and they weren't dead all along. I don't know how many times the creators have to say this. http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/ustv/s10...oQ3CbQidDljXfB

Likewise with Homeland. I'm not sure it's a good idea to make a fourth season, but the first three were great imo.

i probably liked Lost more than most, it had some down moments but it carried along well, i wasnt keen on the ending though.

but with any long running show the end is hard to nail and given the way Lost went, a perfect ending was going to be nigh on impossible.

but hey at least it was better than the ending to Dexter (i mean just send the poor chap to Argentina and everyone would of been happy.)

'The Last Ship' was set to record but didn't for some reason. I said to the other half when I saw the advert that it looked like a programme that would wind me up.

American heroes on the last surviving destroyer, looking to save the world, whilst battling the nasty Russians. Led by a feisty female and a veteran male naval commander. A patch work of civilians, and no doubt a sinister character out for his own good. A modern day 'Waterworld' showcasing some modern naval technology/hardware.

Anyone sticking with "The 100" just to see what happens. Its getting to the "meh" stage for me.

That is exactly my stance on it. Boring me now but for some reason is still rated 7/10 on imdb. Surely it gets better?

I mean the acting isn't even good

I liked it throughout, just the 1st season was superb and they never hit that standard again.

I still think purgatory makes more sense than that rubbish they state.

I think I'm gonna buy the Lost box set.

I watched it from start to finish, yeah it had some bad moments, but it also had some great stuff. Riveting, brilliant television at times.

I kinda forgot how much I enjoyed it until it got brought up here. I may pop into town on Friday (pay day!) get it and have a walk down memory lane.

I really should, but I still prefer box sets. I'm old fashioned like that.

I pay for Netflix but don't use it much, I just kinda like 'physical' stuff
