Lost, as Recapped By People Who Have Never Seen Lost

Newsweek‘s recap of Lost as told by staffers who’ve never seen the show strikes me as rather astute in the way it draws out how incomprehensible the show is to any new viewer at this point. Worse, I’m a seasoned fan, yet after watching this week’s final-season premiere, I still have almost no idea what’s going on.

If I had a huge amount of free time on my hands, I’d go through the entire series and cut out all the moments in which on character refuses to explain some crucial piece of information to another character.
