OK, a bit speculative as some will have liked it & some not.

I´m halfway through series 3 & there´s quite a bit more to go.

Have enjoyed it so far-so is it worth sticking with?

And if I do-will I understand the ending??

youngermother1 Sun 07-Oct-12 20:54:18

No, No, No and no - wasted hours on it, ending doesn't explain anything and soooooooooooo many lose ends

jkklpu Sun 07-Oct-12 20:55:19

no, awful, ridiculous, so over-rated

Doodlekitty Sun 07-Oct-12 20:55:43

No

Noooooo! Hours of my life I won't get back!

diddl Sun 07-Oct-12 20:56:36

OK, thanks.

Will read the plot synopses instead!

I loved it and have watched it all the way through about 3 times but as to whether you will I can't say.

I don't know anyone in RL who likes it as much as me so the odds are you probably won't grin

no

God no...utter waste of time.

I am starting to find it a bit confusing so can´t help thinking that it´s just going to get worse.

I absolutely loved it although found the ending disappointing.

Really enjoyed it until the end, when almost all the loose ends were left loose. Even some hanging on from series 1.

Absolutely loved it until the last episode which ruined an amazing series sad There was one really good series but can't remember which one it is and don't want to ruin it for you by explaining what happened and why it was so good (I think it might have been series 4).

Anyway, it is good to watch as long as you don't try and understand it...and Jack and Sawyer make it worthwhile wink

Loved it apart from the ending which I cannot remember.

i loved the first series. and the second. it just lost its way somewhere - went too dark, at some point. it should have focussed on light hearted, peril-driven banter, rather than dark, Lord of the flies style stuff which i found just too down for regular viewing fodder.

diddl Sun 07-Oct-12 21:33:10

I also enjoyed 1&2.

3 I´m finding confusing.

New characters who are then killed off.

Desmond time travelling/seeing the future.

Kinora Sun 07-Oct-12 21:33:14

No.

I watched all the way through and not really sure what happened.

I even went on forums <geek> looking for explanations. The more I thought about the plot, the more I got confused.

The last episode was a very crap explanation for watching all 7 series.

ceebeegeebies Sun 07-Oct-12 21:38:28

Have just looked it up on Wikipedia and it was series 5 that I really enjoyed smile

marquesas Sun 07-Oct-12 22:00:14

I'd certainly finish S3 - the last double episode is one of the best things I've ever seen on TV although I'm not sure how good it would be watching it so long after it was on if you know anything about the later series iyswim. I can vividly remember watching it and not knowing what was coming.

roughtyping Sun 07-Oct-12 22:04:26

YES! I loved it. Go into it with no expectations though. I have watched it multiple times blush

ZacharyQuack Sun 07-Oct-12 22:09:09

I loved it. I think it works best if you just enjoy the ride and accept that all the questions will not be answered.

mummytime Sun 07-Oct-12 22:17:25

We loved it, it's best on DVD, and watching it fairly close together means it is a bit easier to follow.

Ephiny Tue 09-Oct-12 15:29:09

Yes. I watched it all, and enjoyed it.

The ending was...disappointing for me though. I expected better than that.

flossy101 Tue 09-Oct-12 15:31:16

I'd say its worth sticking with.

Season 1 is by far the best in my opinion, I think by the last season the writers had lost their minds, but enjoyable all the same.

diddl Tue 09-Oct-12 15:38:25

I´m finding it quite addictive tbh.

I´m interested in some of the characters.

Well, finished series three, so that´s half way.

Might as well carry on.

There are some I skip through if it´s character(s) that I´m not interested in.
