LOST SEASON 3 CAST
HEROES vs LOST
yeah! i know, i know!
it's somewhat like comparing day & night but i just can't help but notice a couple of similarities. and of course what else is there for me to do but blog about it!
the two shows have done spectacularly well during their first seasons.
well, LOST sort of lost its glory when we all found out what was in the hatch. although, after doing a marathon of its 3rd season, i have to admit, i was hooked again (they're showing the future now! you think you'd lose interest because you know they get off the island but you don't. believe me, it just gets more interesting!).
we have yet to see the 2nd season of HEROES. hopefully it doesn't go through the dreaded sophomore slump.
anyway, both shows have this underlying unnatural if not supernatural theme.
HEROES has the mutant powers and LOST has the weird island with the island monster, which by the way, they still have no explanation for. can't wait to see how the scriptwriters would pull that off!
both shows revolve around a very complicated connect-the-dots theme where very different characters who don't know one another but for some reason are more connected than they know and are all of a sudden thrown together for one major reason.
HEROES has the "save the cheerleader, save the world" reason and LOST has the "push the button, save the world" reason.
both shows have one super-uber villain each.
HEROES has Sylar (papa!) and LOST has Ben (not papa!).
but aside from being both very good shows, that is definitely where their similarities end.
can't say i have a favorite between them at this point but i do strongly recommend that you watch both.
i promise, you won't be disappointed.
