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 theorising—but I also sympathise with the many of you out there who just don't get what the excitement is all about.

Since we're now well and truely into the final series, it might be a little too late to start watching the show. But who says you can't fake it? Here are a few tips for you to impress your friends, socialise at Lost viewing parties, or ways to steer the conversation into something that's a little more up your alley. Whip 'em out tonight and tomorrow morning!

Tips for surviving a Lost viewing party

  • Two minutes before the episode begins, announce "Previously on Lost" in your scariest voice. It's not an original joke, but everyone around you will think you've done this before.
  • Roll your eyes anytime Sawyer (that's the hot surly blond guy) makes a joke and say "Ugh, I'm so on team Jack." (This also works vice versa anytime Jack whines).
  • At any given time just say "Man, I miss the days when the biggest question was whether they would live in the caves or on the beach."
  • Roll your eyes when Kate is onscreen and suggest a drinking game where everyone sips when Kate does something annoying.
  • Comment on Claire's skull baby. You'll know it when you see it.

Tips for your every day Lost watercooler conversations

  • How to get everyone to stop talking about the Easter Eggs you know nothing about: "None of this matters. It all comes down to good vs. evil."
  • How to extract yourself when you clearly don't know what the last season is about: "I stopped watching after the Nikki and Paolo debacle."
  • 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."
