See You In Another Life Brother!
As you start watching it, secondary plot-lines which peek into the pasts of characters on island look very absorbing and they continue to interest you throughout the season one, but somewhere in the second season you start feeling bored by too-frequent-but-too-insignificant details of the past lives of various freaks on island.



I thought it was just me who used to fast-forward the secondary plots, but recently I recommended this TV series to one of my friends and she also started doing the same. She liked it until season one but as soon as second season started these sequences became 'intolerable' and she started skipping them altogether to stay on island.


I shared this small piece of information about Lost because I felt that it was important. Since I stopped watching Lost, I have not found a better TV series; perhaps I will never find one. The plethora of characters and narratives and mysteries in Lost overwhelms the attention spans of viewers in a unique way.

Out of all pieces of dialogues in the series "See you in another life brother" is most amazing in my opinion.

When I started watching Lost, I was already becoming bored with the backstory lines before the end of season 1. So, you would say the overall story arc of the show can still be coherent even with fast forwarding the flashbacks?

It was coherent for me. sticking out tongue I think, most of the flash-backs are to highlight some shades of personality in characters; for example, in case of Kate it's most puzzling type of past---she almost passes as a 'good woman' but then there is a certain duality about her which keeps you wondering.

Not an exact detail possible as a suggestion for its tremendous value. But it has been spoken many a times when audience was not aware of past of speaker. The speaker was a christian monk and hence the habit of using 'brother' but I saw it just as a dashing style of speaker.
