Me: “Imagine if instead of being at the mercy of TV writers, you & your friends could control what happens in Lost.”
Her: “That’d be AWESOME.”
That’s probably the most convincing explanation I’ve ever heard!
Well, I don’t know if it’s the most convincing ever. But it works if you’re like a lot of Lost fans (i.e., six episodes into the last season and still trying to make up your mind about whether the show is still good).
