I had never seen an episode until ABC put them all online last January. I'd been curious to see it, but wasn't sure if I'd like it. As it turned out, I finished all 3 seasons in time for the S4 premiere.:D
But since then I've experienced, er, side effects, if you will. Namely, I don't get nearly as much enjoyment out of the other shows I watch. The mystery in this season's "Desperate Housewives" greatly intrigued me at the start of this season; since I started watching LOST, I've hardly cared. Even "Law & Order," still one of my favorite shows, doesn't interest me nearly as much as it used to. I could go on, but the point is, this insane show has so totally raised my standards that I just can't get into most shows very much anymore.
Anyone else have this "problem"?
PS. I'm not really complaining...;-)
