This week marked exactly two years since ABC’s serialized cult-pop drama Lost went off the air with a series finale that featured a heady mix of philosophy, spiritualism, ambiguous metaphors, and amnesia-curing smooches. The two-year anniversary of anything is not typically a time for celebration. But Lost dominated internet culture in its heyday, and the anniversary offered fans a moment to once again talk about a show that dominated the cultural conversation of the late ’00s. In our new podcast, me and Lost mega-guru Jeff Jensen talk about the show. We also offer a list of our respective top three non-Lost serialized shows. Some of our choices might surprise you! (Fair warning: Some of our choices will just not surprise you at all.)
Listen to the complete podcast below, or check us out in the iTunes store. If you want to share your own personal Lost memories, tweet at us at @EWDocJensen and @EWDarrenFranich. Oh, and look what’s streaming on Hulu — could it be a brilliant serialized drama whose early cancellation could feasibly enable you to watch it in its entirety over the holiday weekend? Fancy that!
