I remember in early 2004 seeing the hype surrounding the upcoming show, Lost. I thought it might be an okay show to check out. Little did I know that a television show could make me think so much and expand my knowledge of how different personalities react under pressure.

I knew there was something extraordinary about this show after the 4th episode, Walkabout, during the reveal that Locke was in a wheelchair.

As a storyteller, I have a knack for guessing plot points and endings for shows and movies. Lost keeps me guessing and this is the main reason I am so in love with the show and its writers. While I often have some idea of what will happen, the writers always seem to throw me a curve ball that keeps me excited about talking about the show and sharing with other Lost fans.
