How-To: Sound Like You Watch Lost, Even If You Don't

You guys all know that I've been a die-hard Lost fanatic since day one, but I know that not everyone is in my boat (or should I say "on my island." Groan). I love watching the show with friends and spending the next day theorizing — but I also sympathize with the many of you out there who just don't get what the excitement is all about.

  • How to turn the conversation toward celebrity gossip, a subject you may know more about: "I mean, would Kate and Charlie ever date on the show? I think not."
