Lost is an American television drama series that originally aired on the American Broadcasting Company from September 22, 2004, to May 23, 2010, over six seasons, comprising a total of 121 episodes.
After thinking about the question for a while, I have to conclude that LOST is the best television series to ever air. It's just incredibly well written and thought-out. It can get confusing, especially in season 5, but that's one of the great things about it. It's intelligent because that's how the story happened to turn out, not because it had to be or wanted to be. I will forever regret not watching it until five years after it finished.
Now, how the hell is it that the likes of Family Guy, South Park, even the Simpsons are higher than this? I know that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but not even that is an appropriate excuse for something as grotesque as this.

Lost is the best show on earth. Period. It is amazing. It always keeps you wanting more and more and it is so interesting. It's my favorite show ever. I wish there wasn't so many haters out there complaining about the end and how it didn't reveal answers but I think it's meant to be like that. It's the perfect ending. It makes you continue to think about the whole thing itself because the end is confusing but I like that. I will be rewatching it many many times. Its emotional, action packed, mystery, and romance. It has it all. And there will never be a show made that is better than lost. Best show ever
Quite possibly the best show to air in a while. The story is interesting and well paced, the characters are just as interesting and incredibly developed, the story progression is some of the best I've seen in a long time, the flashbacks and flash forwards and flash sideways are super cool, the only thing that I didn't find as incredible was the ending but I won't spoil anything, also don't worry it's still a damn good ending it just could have been way better.
The second I started watching, I was hooked! Even my sister, who was freaked out about the plane crash, watched it and couldn't stop. Every single character is loveable and amazing; the show always adds something that makes you rethink a character. For example, I hated Sawyer until I learned about his childhood. My favorite characters are probably Sayid and John Locke. Every single person on earth should watch this if they have the chance - bubbleteaknj
I've watched just about every show in the top ten, and I can honestly say lost is far and away the best. I myself have seen every episode about three times, and if you haven't already tried lost you should. It's just one of those shows you wish you could go back to the first time you saw it and watch it all over again to be surprised.
This was extremely the best ever! and it should be top the ranking.
it gathered every aspect of TV entertainements that a show could offer, it was my sanctuary despite the ending that was not totally closed for the viewers to imaginary create their own theories, it is my #1 and will remain so...
I got so addicted to this show that I ended up making a journal to write down all the clues I could find in order to solve the many mysteries of Lost! Sure, Season 5 was a complete whack and the series finale was extremely bad but seasons 1 - 3 were excellent. It has great characters that I care for and actually make me cry when they die so yeah, this is one of my favourite shows! - Daviddv0601
It's my birthday today, I'm sitting in my room with the lights off and just reminiscing of all the friends I've made and lost, the happy memories and the sad. Lost taught me that no matter where I am in life, or how far I've strayed off course that every individual life is beautiful, the people who come in and out of our lives are worth celebrating, and that I should hold my fondest memories close to my heart.
I like the show but a bunch of the stuff didn't add up and I didn't understand the ending. Like they all died?! And what's with Jacob and his brother? How does Jacob get his powers when he didn't know what was going on with him? And what's with "Don't let them say a word to you when you go to kill him"?! But yeah other than that it's pretty nice. - P-Bro-N-J
My favorite show. It is pure awesome. It is a mystery show, a horror show, an adventure show. It really makes you think. And I like how they made a boring show of people surviving on an island, and made it a whole lot more awesome. - mtndew37
Lost is not the best show but out of these shows it deserves first place. Lost had many seasons and it never stopped churning out new mysteries, not only that but they also provided answers that satisfied but were open ended enough to leave room for the imagination. Plus the cast was amazing... Props to Jorge Garcia, Matthew Fox, Dominic Monaghan, Emilie de Ravin, Naveen Andrews, Terry O'Quinn, Joshua Lee, Evangeline Lilly, Henry Ian Cusick, Michael Emerson, and Alan Dale for a magnificent performance.
This show was the first in a very long time to introduce a new plot. All of the other shows I have seen are just repeats of each other. LOST is by far the most well written show in a long time. Best show of the decade!
A show that adequately encompasses all of the factors necessary in order to obtain a well rounded and thoroughly epic fictional drama. This show deserves to be called one of the greatest of all time.
The amazing actors, the suspense, just a perfect combination of action, horror, and drama. Jack was my favorite character. Excellent ending but I have been sad since it was over.Lost was the best show ever.
Easily the best fictional characters ever portrayed on television. Entertaining, smart, suspenseful and emotional. It truly had it all.
I'm currently binge watching this show on Netflix. I'm at the end of season 3 and absolutely love this show! It should be up in at least the top 5 in my opinion.
BEST T.V. show on the planet I miss lost so much but its in our memories I will never forget lost. This will make your mind blow up.
At least at some point lost is better than Walking Dead. The best episode of Walking Dead is better than best episode of Lost, but Lost has lots of good episodes where Walking Dead has few good episodes. - zxm
This is the best T.V. Show to ever be aired on T.V.. Every season is better then the last. The performances, the twists and turns were all incredible!
The best show of all time, should definitely be #1! It has a great storyline that recruited a great deal of planning, amazing acting, even better writing, and told a complete story.
All I can say is that Lost was a masterpiece. And every T.V. show I've watched since finishing Lost has just seemed mediocre.
I LOVE THIS SHOW! Best T.V. show ever made, it's so interesting and addicting. I could watch this show for hours! I think this should SO be number one!
Lost where do I begin. Its amazing! The plot is very scary. The flashbacks make me have feelings instead of Family Guy flashbacks. The characters are awesome! When they make a death they make it sad! Remember Charlie? Charolette? When I watch it I always feel something sad. The smoke monster also adds more then just sadness. Lost for the win - spodermanfan1000
You can't beat the writing, acting or the overall feel of the show. You question every thing you beleive in when you watch some episodes. - Schwanie3
Oh my god, Lost is amazing! Each episode leaves you guessing and every character is amazing. Even I sympathized for my least favorite characters, Jin and Shannon. This is the best show ever - bubbleteaknj
