Early Access: Lost [Human Disqualification] Episode 1

I know there hasn’t been a whole lot of buzz around Lost (also listed as Human Disqualification), and I have to admit, it’s true that this show isn’t for everyone.

However, I have to say a number of us over on Patreon have been enjoying this one a great deal. Show is so meaty, with lots to unpack from various angles, that you never quite feel like you got it all. On top of that, I find it quite mesmerizing, in its poetic sort of melancholy. It’s the kind of show, where, if you do take to it, you’d probably love it a lot.

I thought I’d share my Episode 1 notes for Lost with you guys today, in hopes that it might generate a little more interest and love for the show, because I do think it’s pretty special.

These are my episode 1 notes, exactly as they appear on Patreon, ie, without screenshots (I’m saving those for the actual review). I hope you all enjoy, and I hope you’ll consider joining us over on Patreon, for the rest of the discussions! ❤️

I couldn’t really gush with goggly eyes as I would before a fellow kdrama enthusiast. There’s the matter of availability and good looking actors, but that didn’t really feel to be at the heart of it. I also felt angry at myself for feeling apologetic about my drama choices (the person’s what you’d call a “serious” type and I didn’t want to be an object of his condescension). Does this mean I subconsciously subscribe to the notion of kdramas somehow not being up to the mark? I have been agonising about this for a while now. I want to be able to watch what I like without feeling guilty or hesitant to acknowledge my love for it to the world. And I could think of nobody better than you to provide a thoughtful answer to my predicament. The next time I come across this question, I’d like to bank on your eloquence and insights, please!
