As you all know, Lost was all about the characters. I say that as I roll my eyes, because I think we all know deep down inside that this is just what the writers want you to think. HOWEVER, I’m going to give them the benefit of the doubt for a few minutes and try to see their point of view.
Let’s pretend that the characters are really all that mattered on this show. Let’s pretend it was like Grey’s Anatomy without the layers of cheese and melodramatic dialog.
Allow me to remind you who was actually IN Lost. Raise your hand if you come across a character that you actually cared about in one way or another……
Jack – A very safety oriented guy. Arrogant at times. Liked to boss people around on occasion (without realizing it). Aside from a couple other people, he’s the only one worth trusting in this entire show.
Hurley – I’ll admit, if you don’t like Hurley, you are probably schizophrenic.
Kate – Can’t trust a word she says. No sense of humor. She’s more fickle than anyone you know. Don’t even pretend you care about her.
Sawyer – Can’t trust a word he says. If karma’s so important on the island, he would’ve died regardless of the rules back in season one. He’ll make you chuckle on occasion, but only after offending someone.
Jin – He meant well. Bland personality though. Reminds me of almost everyone else on the show
Locke – The only person I ever looked forward to hearing what was on his mind. He had a sixth sense that was in tuned with the island.
Rose – She had quite the attitude if I do say so myself. She didn’t really care about others, Just herself and her husband.
Charlie – Annoying as hell. Was a druggie. Sure, he wanted to help care for Aaron, but it was only cause he liked Claire. He lied a lot too.
Sun – Also untrustworthy
Ben – Extremely untrustworthy
Juliette – Extremely untrustworthy
Widmore – Extremely untrustworthy
Miles – asshole
Lapidus – smartass
Aside from Locke and Hurley, my hand would still be down. I would basically never trust anyone in this list, let alone CARE for them. How the hell was this show only about the characters? Who the hell LIKED it for the characters? Take away the mystery, and this show would’ve gotten cancelled immediately.
