“If I get onto a show that I feel like I can root for and there’s a little bit of action in there, and there’s a wonderful battle of good versus evil, I’m pretty much all in,” Mitchell said.
I couldn’t resist asking her about “Lost” and her role as Dr. Weaver’s first lesbian lover on “ER.”
A little tease:
Do people still ask you about the “Lost” finale? Because I’m going to right now. [Laughs] They do. I get asked everyday, especially on planes.
So, what did you think of the finale? Here’s the thing, and you may completely disagree with me as many people do, I loved it. Because I’m a big believer in the fact that sometimes there’s just mystery out there and we have no idea what it is. I felt like if they explained every little detail it would have taken away the fun for me. I loved the fact that it was just this big, magical island. I’m on board with that. I think we need a little magic in our lives, so that’s how I felt about it. I know that it drove people nuts. I get it, I really do.
From the cult classics (“Twin Peaks” and “Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman” anyone?) to more recent favorites (“Lost,” “Pushing Daisies” and “Chuck” all come to mind) and some super random personal favorites (remember “Wonder Showzen”?), we’ve picked 15 shows we’d watch in syndication any day of the week.
