Anybody watch it? I was very impressed with the creepiness and the fact that Gilligan's Island 2004 was pulled off without making me laugh out loud at the absurdity of it. I don't generally like JJ Abrams's work, and just about the only thing that I've liked was the movie "Joy Ride", which didn't have me jumping up and down, but it was good for what it was. I don't like "Alias" at all, and "Felicity" was the total opposite of what I usually watch on TV.

I really liked "Lost", though, and will probably watch it until its inevitable cancellation for more episodes of "Extreme Makeover" or "Celebrity Mole". The creature in the jungle is cool, but it better not wind up being a T-Rex or Jurassic Park. The show has the ability to go off the deep end at any minute, so we'll see if it can survive for more than a few episodes, but I really like the potential so far.

I was really impressed with this show too, and that was before some wacky "thing" in the jungle started causing havoc/confusion. My first thought was that it will end up being a dinosaur or something of that nature, and while that doesn't bother me as much as it probably should I was sort of hoping for something a little more realistic and just focusing on this huge cast lost in the middle of nowhere. Anyway, this premiere episode has me hooked already and thats saying a lot considering I haven't watched a (non-sport) show on network television since reality shows took over. Here's hoping it has a long and entertaining run.

I was pretty impressed myself. It wasn't stupid and the acting was pretty decent, which is pretty much all you can ask for. The cast has a lot of depth, too, in that after the first episode we only know a little about three characters and nothing about the rest. They can conceivably spend an episode on every remaining cast member or at least a couple characters a show. And if they're smart, they won't let us know what that creature is until at least halfway through the season, if not until the very end of the season...

First I have to say, I enjoyed it. I only saw about 80% of it but the parts I saw were the important parts (I.E. Matthew Fox needing to get stitched in the back, 4 of them go looking for other plane parts, Captain dies by mysterious creature, etc). I am still waiting to see were they go with the "creature". SO I am not gonna say its a bad thing or a good thing yet. But what really has me watching is Dominic Monaghan (aka Charlie). I am not a big LOTR fan but I like his character, and I want to see were they headed with him.

Just to note, I enjoyed "The Mole" and "Celebrity Mole". But after the last "Mole" I think I read ABC gave the show up and let the producers/directors/or whatever shop the show around to other networks. So I don't think it will be on ABC again anytime soon.

The smartest thing they can do is use the Jaws Method Of Exposition and keep whatever it is out there buried behind the trees as long as possible.

On one hand it was a little on the hokey side and a little too much like a few different ideas cocktailed together on the pitch ("It'll be 'Cast Away' meets 'Survivor' meets 'Predator', this can't fail!!") but on the other hand I got completely sucked in and will most likely be watching next week.

I thought it was pretty good and different then most of the shows out there right now. They've got a lot to work with by showing all the back stories of everyone on the island and who they are.

The two things that intrigued me the most were the dog and the guy who sat out in the rain and had that orange thing in his mouth.

If it turns out to be a Sleestak, I'll watch it, if not... oh well.

Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
While doing press for the show, Abrams wouldn't say exactly WHAT is out in the jungle, but has strongly hinted that whatever it is, it's nothing pre-historic, distancing himself and the show from the idea that they crash-landed in Jurassic Park.

LOST certainly caught my attention. I watched most of it, after missing the first twnety minutes.

I can't really say that I cared for the "unknown" in the bush, though. If it were merely a character study/drama of the survivors, instead of a monster thing, I'd probably rate it higher.
