Back in the day, a show leaving Netflix (like the exodus of the beloved Battlestar Galactica reboot in 2014) meant you could only revisit it by buying a collection. But Hulu spent the latter half of 2016 scooping up big-name shows that left Netflix like Bob’s Burgers, Futurama, 30 Rock, and Parenthood. Today, they scored another hit show that once enthralled network viewers nationwide: Lost.
It’s been over seven years since the show aired its finale; And yes, Lost has become a byword for mystery shows with huge promises and few answers. But the show was, is, and shall be a treasure — a series that totally jogged between humor, terror, action, and romance with erratic grace and occasional brilliance. In retrospect, Lost is nowhere near as cohesive as other highly-lauded shows, but its cocktail of supernatural events and all-too-human drama was potent enough to rule watercooler conversations for its whole six-season run.
You’ll never be able to tune in alongside millions of fans again, but the show’s existential quandaries are timeless. But should you want to fire up the pilot and join the 2004 zeitgeist, you can catch Lost on Hulu now.
