Pick of the Week: It's Time to Once Again Get "Lost"

There is a lot of good stuff on this week, including the inauguration of our new President.

But how can I possibly ignore the return of the most entertaining—and frustrating—mystery on television.

My Pick of the Week is the season premiere of “Lost.”

When I posted my preview of the premiere, I took some flack from one “Lost” fan who wanted to know why I even watched the show if I needed someone to explain it to me and I didn’t know who all the characters were. In other words, why watch something I don’t understand?

But isn’t that part of the magic of the show—that we don’t fully understand what’s going on? Isn’t that what makes us keep watching?

There is plenty to not understand in the season premiere as we learn the fate of the island. When last we saw it, the island disappeared to who knows where. But as we learn very quickly, the island has actually disappeared to who knows when…

In the meantime, we find out what’s happening with the Oceanic Six as some of them find their lives in danger. Plus, we get the return of Cheech Marin as Hurley’s father, which is always welcome…

But if there really are any “Lost” fans out there who completely understand what’s going on, please let me know. I would love to hear from you.

“Lost” premieres Wednesday, January 21st at 9 p.m. on ABC. A one-hour recap airs at 8 p.m…
