Another interesting tidbit since you didn't watch the show "live".
As everyone mentioned before, a big part of watching LOST was the interaction on message boards and the speculation during the wait time between episodes. It was monumental, I can't even explain it!
Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse (the writers) were stars themselves and very well known, in fact they hosted a special show every season right before the premiere just to answer questions and do a little rewind of the previous season.
LOST was just a really great experience and will always stay with me.
***Don't be ashamed if there are scenes that make you emotional or even cry. I know many manly guys that teared up from time to time watching LOST.***
