We gave in and started renting the series of Lost. Several people told us how great it was and that we should hurry and watch it before the final season started in February. I honestly didn't realize the full impact of our decision -- the time and dedication it would take to watch 5 seasons. It was a lot more time consuming than I'd ever imagined. They really packed in a lot of episodes (42 minutes each without commercials) each season! We finished the last season finale tonight and it's bittersweet -- I'm so relieved to have my evenings and weekends free again but I'll also miss watching it. It's become our nightly ritual, cuddled up on the couch, both of us taking our turns falling asleep during different parts of the show, waking up enough to start 'just one more episode', and going to sleep way too late every night. We'd talk about going out and then decide we'd both rather watch Lost more than go to a movie. Luckily I won't have to miss it for long, the last season begins in a few weeks. And I can't wait!
