LOSTathon: Season 1

So as you might know by now (I've hinted here and there about this "six girls, six seasons" idea) - I'm part of a challenge to do nail art inspired by the TV series LOST! Each day of this week I, along with the other ladies, will be posting a manicure inspired by a different season. Today is season 1! I'm probably the last in posting this, but I wanted it to go up at 8:15 (nerd nerd nerd). The rest of the posts should be more timely - following a particular numerical pattern you might be familiar with 4...8...15...

Debbie at The Crumpet
Kirsten at Geeky Owl
Emma (meee! *waves*) right here at Manicurity

I watched LOST long after it aired; I watched all six seasons last summer on Netflix, so I might have a different view of it all than the other ladies. For instance, I knew Ian Somerhalder as a vampire before I knew him as Boone, but I'm still majorly fond of the series.

So, my nails are pretty obvious and summarize the first season - the beach, the caves, a POLAR BEAR?!?!, and the hatch. Generally, the first season focuses on the crash of an airplane and their fight for survival - choosing between living near the beach or in the caves by a source of water. Then the mysteries start to enfold - why is there a polar bear on a jungle island? Why is there a metal hatch marked 'quarantine' in the middle of no where on this same weird, jungly island with polar bears...!? What IS that smoke monster thing?

Hoorays about Season 1
  • everything about Charlie - I both love and hate him so much
  • Hurley is the best!
  • Kate is maybe the most beautiful human woman I've looked at - she's so pretty! And I still liked her in season 1 lol
  • Sayid is super smart and awesome
  • Sawyer - another person I can't help but love and hate

Nays about Season 1
  • freakin' SHANNON. I cannot watch anything with her in it now without immediately being annoyed. Her and Boone = ughhh
  • Boone dying :(
  • Locke totally creeped me out for the most part of season 1; I was so skeptical of him and that one time he made Boone have a weird hallucinations - what?

Remember when...?
  • even in the very first episode, we're talking about "We have to go back!"
  • that scientist guy blew up at the Black Rock? Holy crap!!
  • that moment you find out Sun totally knows English?!
  • meeting Rousseau by following the cable
  • Claire being kidnapped, Charlie being hanged - ick
  • Michael's raft and The Others taking Walt
  • the hatch finally opens at the end of the season....

Now enjoy a video of the polar bear scene!
