I've heard a lot of people (and my hubby is one) say that they lost interest in LOST after two or three seasons because they were, well, lost. They couldn't understand where the story was going or things didn't make sense. But that was one of the things I actually liked about the show. It was that sense of what in the hell is going on and when are we going to find out that kept me going back week after week. Yeah, I'm weird like that:)
And another thing that kept me glued to the set, threatening anybody who dared to talk to me during the episode with bodily harm (just kidding!), was how the relationships evolved between the characters. I actually started to care for them and wanted them find their way off that island just as much as they did. Ya'll, I bawled during the episode a few weeks ago in which three major characters died in the space of a few minutes (I was the only one awake so I let the tears flow). And during the finale, my hubs was awake and I wanted to bawl again, but I sucked it up (he would have given me so much grief if he had seen me do that).
Now a lot of folks have complained that a lot of questions were not answered during the finale. Sure, I was irked because I wanted to know all of that stuff, too. But I didn't let that take away from my overall enjoyment. What was more important to me was that the characters were allowed to have a "happy" ending. Now that doesn't mean that I want all stories to have happy endings, but I wanted these particular characters to have one because of all the bad things that had happened to them on the show.
So, yeah, I'm gonna go through LOST withdrawl for a while. (I did when Battlestar Galactica ended, too.) But I'll live:) And hopefully, I'll find another show and plenty of books that have characters who are equally entertaining and enthralling soon.
So are there any books, t.v. shows or movies that have characters that you have fallen in love with?
