Question about [A] Night

The new TV show "Lost" premieres at 8pm next Wednesday. I'm interested in checking it out. Since we don't have the next anime on tap yet, what do you all think about checking out "Lost" for a couple of weeks? It would be "Lost," then an episode of "Ultraviolet." (There are 6 episodes total.) I'm going to look for a short anime for the 7:30 to 8:00pm slot. Something like Cowboy Bebop. If we decide we like "Lost," we'll watch it, a short anime and "Ultraviolet" for a few weeks. If it doesn't work out, then we'll go back to one disc of anime and one episode of "Ultraviolet."

Lost: A horrific plane crash leaves 48 passengers alive, and stranded on a remote island in the South Pacific. The survivors include scientist Jack, now freed prisoner Kate, one hit wonder rock star Charlie, Iraqi military vet Sayid, and a mysterious man named Locke. These people from all walks of life must band together to survive not only the island, but a gigantic...something that lives in the interior.

The show was created by JJ Abrams (The WB's Felicity, ABC's Alias) and Damon Lindelof, and stars Matthew Fox (Fox's Party of Five), Dominic Monaghan (The Lord of the Rings trilogy), newcomer Evangeline Lilly, Ian Somerhalder (The WB's Young Americans), Jorge Garcia (CBS's Becker), Emilie de Ravin (The WB's Roswell), Naveen Andrews (The English Patient), Harold Perrineau (HBO's Oz, The Matrix), Malcolm David Kelley (Antwone Fisher), Terry O'Quinn (ABC's Alias), Daniel Dae Kim (The WB's Angel), Yunjin Kim, Josh Holloway, and Maggie Grace. The series has just been picked up by ABC and will be airing Wednesday nights at 8pm Eastern/Pacific and 7pm Central starting September 22.
