I talk a lot about Lost in my countdown of my favorite moments so I won’t repeat a lot here. I was alternately wowed and frustrated by this show, but mostly wowed the first few seasons and mostly frustrated the final few seasons. The pilot episode is my favorite of any show ever. If it were a movie it would rank in my top 100 movies of all-time. The sense of awe I felt was palpable and it’s the fastest I’ve ever binge-watched a one-hour drama. On another day I might rank this lower, but I have found while doing this list I have been generous towards shows that have high peaks.
