I say "me" in a very general sense, since I've only watched 1/2 an episode of the show, mostly because I'm not much of a TV-consumer.
So in my totally unscientific, anecdotal study of my friends, bloggers and random people I engage in conversation with on the street - I've observed that people feel pretty passionate about this show.
Of course, it could be the fact that it is one of the most popular shows right now. I am told the writing is good. Plus, there are fans galore, Asian American or not.
But it's also one of the few shows in mainstream USA that portrays a man
of Asian descent (Korean, in this case) AS A COUPLE. And there is Naveen Andrews
, who is South Asian (he plays an Iraqi).
There seems to be a little more diversity in terms of current TV couples - Grey's Anatomy also comes to mind. Sandra Oh's character is with a black guy, which we'd blogged about a while back
. (the show's writer is African American, I am told).
How many of you watch Lost?
