I wanted to see a story about people surviving on an island, sort of a more serious version of Gilligan's Island.
I would have liked to see a show about Evangeline Lilly and Emilie de Ravin stranded on a desert island, and deciding to pass the time with lots of sex.
The writers didn't tailor the premise of the show specifically to me either. But, we make the best of life with what we have.
I've been asking around to see how people reacted to the finale. Turns out, I don't know anybody who watched Lost. Some said their girlfriends, wives or daughters did, though. Very strange.
Not really surprising. For every attractive woman on that show, there's about three or four insanely handsome men.
