I never watched the Lost series because it had already been on a couple of years before I saw an episode. I didn't want to start watching late so I just let it slide. Then I started renting the seasons at the local library and enjoyed them. Also recently watched the first 2 seasons of the Killing. I'm not necessarily recommending these, but if there is a TV series or miniseries that you might have wanted to see, now might be a good time to give one a try.
