Actually, I'm really into it. I like this kind of shows where the action is moving to various character, not only in the main ones. I'm a HUGE Sons of Anarchy for the same reason.
But for Lost my expectations went down just because of the comments that I received from my mates.
I have the same taste although i haven't seen the SOA show. You should avoid all these comments imo, people have different tastes and a lot of my friends dislike the shows i'm really into.
