“Describe to a non-viewer what Lost is all about... in 25 words or less.”
You think I'm joking, don't you? No... I'm not. I get this question all the time. I used to be able to do it... back in season 2. But it’s become a lot more difficult. So, I’ll throw it to you, but I’ll give you some leeway... do it in 50 words or less. And to help you, here's one I've written out (sadly, it's not one I've ever actually said):
Lost is a masterpiece of intrigue, mystery, character development, acting and writing. It’s a story of people who are lost, both physically and emotionally. The plane crash is just the beginning of their individual and collective journeys. It’s a story about how we can find ourselves by connecting with others.
And if they insist on 25 words or less? I shall offer up the following haiku:
Wait... you don’t watch Lost?
Sorry, but I can’t help you.
Mostly ’cause you suck.
So what would YOUR answer be to this question?
