Advertisements Therein lies the problem as well. I think the reality is that no show will ever rival the complexity/insanity/awesomeness of Lost because Lost has already done it. I just can't see anything else being so intricate and layered and innovative in the way Lost has done. Like mentioned, six years in and no complaints over constantly rehashing plot lines, very few cliches, the height of "serial" TV. I find most other stuff simply isn't as interesting. Believe me, I know the show has had problems, it's not perfect. But very few shows have done what they've done, and I don't think any will in the future (especially seeing the kind of garbage that rolls out each season).
