But it didn't mean that the show didn't interest me. I would read spoilers online and try to get friends to explain island mythology to me. But you know what? I still didn't know what the fuck was going on. I recall a specific conversation that went like this:
PRINCE: So what did the monster end up being? A dinosaur?
PRINCE: Wait. There are no dinosaurs on the island?
PRINCE: Then what was the monster?
GABRIEL: It was a cloud of smoke.
PRINCE: Ha ha ha ha ha! No, no, really, what was it?
GABRIEL: A cloud of smoke.
PRINCE: Wait. You're serious?
At which point, I threw threw my hands in the air and sighed, "I can't commit to this!"
Thankfully, a bunch of cats recap Lost for me. Watch:
