LOST

Last Thursday I stopped by the local video rental store on my way home. I had been looking forward to the dvd release of The Prairie Home Companion movie. I have long been a big fan of Garrison Keillor’s radio show on NPR…its a wonderful combination of music, culture and comedy. It’s patterned after old-fashioned radio variety shows and is hilarious and often poignant. The movie is loosely based on the show and does a good job of capturing the programs essence.

I also rented the first season of Lost.

I had never seen the show, but had heard it was good.

What an understatement.

It is by far the best program I have ever seen.

I was all but glued to the tv all weekend.

It’s just amazing.

Everyone should watch this show….even if you hate tv.

I wondered what the draw was….

It has excellent writing, great character development, beautiful cinematography and a very intriguing and suspenseful plot.

There had to be something else though…

And thanks to a friend I checked out Bill Brown’s blog and he nails it….

Its about the search for meaning…

It explores the questions that drive us most deeply.

If you haven’t seen it you should.
