I went through a daytime soap opera phase when I was younger. As fellow soap watchers know, you can miss months and months of episodes before tuning in again and still follow the storyline as if it were yesterday.
I've never seen a full episode of Lost until the season premier this year (S4). Still, I was able to know the story immediately just based on commercials and anysort of press coverage I'd seen. I felt like I was back in college watching soaps again!
The weekly cliff hangers are frustrating, but the show creators are superb at building drama! So good.
I had to tape tonight's episode and when I went to watch it, I got it in Spanish! I am so frustrated.....
