Despite the problems1 with the show, I actually want to continue watching it. It hasn't quite gripped me the way previous shows on DVD have (Sports Night, Scrubs, House) wherein I can easily stay up until six o'clock in the morning watching an entire season, but I do find myself rather enthralled.
So, I guess I can understand its popularity.
1 - Oh, you don't think there are problems with the show? Allow me to illustrate:
- The engine remained operational an awful long time after it came apart from the plane
- You don't get sucked into a jet engine from 15 feet away
- Many of the survivors are apparently useless, seeing as there's nearly 50 of them, but we only see about a dozen
- Thank God there's a doctor, an electrical engineer, and a hunter among this random selection of people. All they need is a shipwright or a pilot, and they'll be outta there!
- Where, on a flight from Australia, are the Australians?
- Locke can freaking walk
- How are there any trees left if "the monster" bashes them down everywhere he walks?
- And, for that matter, what has he been munching on these last 16 years? So far we've seen a few pigs and a polar bear
- Oh yeah. There's polar bears!
- As of yet, no one has constructed a single thing out of a coconut
