Deconstructing “Lost”

“Lost” is, without a doubt, my favorite TV show of the season. While I still watch my slate of bad reality television—something I thought I’d never do, but damned if my DVR doesn’t tape “The Apprentice” and “Town Haul” each week—”Lost” is a rich television drama, full of character studies and intricacies that are a delight to try and dissect.

The best subtlety in the show for me, though, are the names, particularly the prescient and earthy John Locke and French survivor Rousseau. I’m waiting to see the levels of accuracy or irony that relate to this as the series continues.
