Lost

I've been hearing from various sources how good the US series "Lost" is, which is coming towards the end of its first season in the States.

Does anyone know if a UK station has picked this up and if so when does it start?

I've occasionally used bittorent in the past, but my home PC doesn't have the CPU power to play most divx files, plus I'd rather watch a programme on a TV screen in the living room. I only use it to surf, edit my web site, internet chat and <tivo related material censored>.

I've since heard from a friend that Channel 4 have the rights to Lost and that they're about to start promoting it heavily (not that I'll see that as I'll have skipped over any trailers). Launch is sometime this summer - no dates announced as yet.

As to the exploits of the Doctor - (He's credited as Doctor Who in the credits - how wrong is that!) so far, so excellent! And Next week - Daleks

Channel 4 has got the rights to LOST. They are planning to show it after the current run of 'Desperate Housewives' finishes. Heavan help us that C4 have two top rated shows at the same time!!

Just hope C4 don't run it for a few weeks then drop it to the 1:25am slot a-la NYPD Blue

As for whether it's worth it - a resounding YES! I can't wait for the finale in a couple of weeks.

Try and steer clear of spoilers if you can - it will spoil your enjoyment, the mystery of the show is 75% of the fun.
