Lost is a mystery drama that aired on ABC. Lost takes place on a seemingly deserted island where a passenger plane, Oceanic Airlines Flight 815, crashes en route to Los Angeles from Sydney. 48 of the passengers on the plane survive for inexplicable reasons, as the story revolves around unveiling the past and revealing the future of these fated survivors.

The episodes follow a unique storytelling format in that each episode is devoted to one character whose life is further fleshed out via a flashback of his or her life before the plane crash. This often brings the viewer to make interesting conclusions about the characters as each survivor usually has a hidden past that often intertwines with several other people inhabiting the island. Meanwhile, as the story on the island itself progresses, the audience is also left with many questions about the mysterious island, and answers are revealed slowly, which has been the brunt of the criticism pointed at the show.

Regardless of any criticism, the show remains extremely successful and popular and has been a big hit for ABC, a network that struggled to find relevance amongst its network counterparts after putting too much stock in Who Wants to Be A Millionaire? and seeing its ratings collapse as a result.
