A quote from DH Lawrence in relation to what Lost is really about:
We cannot bear connection. That is our malady. We must break away, and be isolate. We call that being free, being individual. Beyond a certain point, which we have reached, it is suicide. Perhaps we have chosen suicide. Well and good. The Apocalypse too chose suicide, with subsequent self-glorification… my individualism is really an illusion. I am a part of the great whole, and I can never escape. But I can deny my connections, break them, and become a fragment. Then I am wretched.

Another DH Lawrence quote:
“Never trust the artist. Trust the tale. The proper function of the critic is to save the tale from the artist who created it.”
The show’s artists and writers really need some saving.
I confess that I have only watched the pilot of the show. But I liked the quote.
