Oh, dear. I'm a little nervous about anatomically-correct Oprahs and Bea Arthurs.
First-- eww! LOL
And I'm feeling really out of touch. I have no idea what those "Lost" numbers are all about. I think I saw one episode from the first season, in a rerun. This may require some Wikiresearch.
And as for the LOST numbers...we viewers know very little about them as well, so you're really not that out of touch!
Also, if you just want to know about the numbers, I'm sure craftsters would be willing to fill you in, but if you're interested in catching up on the series (and some other good shows, too) go here: http://www.televisionwithoutpity.com/articles/category_1197.html
I sometimes read episodes of shows I've seen, because the writers can be good/snarky/funny (or any combo) and they often catch details I didn't... I like to think they see that stuff because they watch each ep at least twice for the write-up...and not because subtlety is lost on me.
Edited to add: I guess I can remove the "come join..." section in my signature, huh?
