Just ploughing through Lost at one episode a night (got the DVD from Canada recently). It's kind of annoying how so very little of the story is given away each episode. So you end up with questions rather than answers. There is a nice sense of menance developing in it, and I like how none of the characters are straightforward.

My favourite is Shannon, the poor little rich girl (yet to get her own backstory). Permanently sulky, preferring to sunbathe rather than "help round camp" and full of self-defensive wisecracks (I particularly liked her one about the "rape caves". She's spent time in St Tropez (where else) and knows (a bit of) French. And she has a beautiful singing voice. She's a Tallulah or a Bette for the 21st century.
