I'm ready to talk about LOST.

I needed a couple of days to process.

I'm ready now.

Let's specifically talk about the last episode. Were you pleasantly surprised and emotionally fulfilled? Or were you annoyed and frustrated?

Did you get closure?

What questions do you still have?

Talk to me, yo.

(Craig - you have to comment, too. You don't get out of this one.)

  1. I thought it was heart wrenching, and beautiful all at the same time. I have watched sinced the very beginning, and I had a feeling that it would end like it did. I liked how they really opened it up for interpretation. I was disappointed that some of my theories were not true, and that some questions remained unanswered. I cried practically the entire 2 1/2 hours. What did you think?

  2. A great article on the finale:

  3. I am in the camp of being emotionally satisfied while being logically frustrated.

    I'm annoyed that they didn't wrap up the issues of the Dharma Initiative and The Numbers (as you mentioned). I thought some of the special effects toward the end were absolutely laughable. And the "plug" was just W.E.I.R.D.

    But the reunions were, I thought, just wonderful to see. Very cool to see that "redemption" for each character. I loved the dawning awareness -- I thought the finale was very well-acted overall.

    Here's another great article that attempts to figure out some of the "left-unanswered" questions. It's also quite funny. :)http://tinyurl.com/2w3r6bn

  4. YAY! We're talking about LOST. I was indeed emotionally satisfied at the ending. (I do love me some montages.) However, there were SOME questions I really wanted answers - THE NUMBERS!? Please, let's talk about the numbers.

    All well... it was a fantastic journey.

  5. I Liked how it ended even though all the questions were not answered.

    If you ask me, they should start a new show about the island so they can continue on with the story about Darma and the numbers or just have it start from the beginning when people/Darma first came to the island. And then it would end when the oceanic flight crashes on the island.

    Did I just write a new show? I need to contact the directors!

    I would totally watch it.

  6. I really liked it. I adored the whole concept that we are meant to meet certain people in our lives and when we die, we wait for them and "move on" together. So awesome. I liked the religious references, too. We were LOST, but now we're found... sort of.

    I think you just have to believe that everything that happened (numbers/Dharma/etc) all played a part in their fate - meeting the "souls" they are meant to be with for eternity. Is that too deep?

    Anyway, I'm happy with it. I'm thrilled that the everything that happened on the island WAS REAL, and that the writers stuck to the plan and did not change the ending, even though the story evolved and characters were added, etc.

    Only thing - what's with the shots of the plane crash at the end? Just to leave one last question?! Well, it wouldn't be LOST without a WTF at the end, now would it?

  7. I agree with WP, I liked watching the mushy-gushy reunions but the logic of it all is... sketchy. FRUSTRATINGLY sketching.

    i'm frustrated by seeing comments on facebook that "they all died in season one's plane crash" because that's NOT what they said happened at all.

    I was... not mad, not sad, not... anything. It's over.

  8. The producers of the show had NOTHING to do with the ending scene of the plane crash. That scene was inserted by the network to "transition into the news".

  9. "You know those Oceanic 815 plane crash images that ran after Jack's (Matthew Fox) eye closed and the "Lost" logo appeared on our TV screens? Some "Lost" fans and TV critics have wondered if they were a last Easter egg from the producers, a clue meant to lead us to conclude that no one survived Oceanic 815's crash landing — and therefore everything we've seen over the last six years never really happened.

    Well, ABC wants to clear the air: Those photographs were not part of the "Lost" story at all. The network added them to soften the transition from the moving ending of the series to the 11 p.m. news and never considered that it would confuse viewers about the actual ending of the show."

  10. Great article from a writer on the show that explains everything (except the signifance of the numbers.

  11. In the end we should have known that the (brilliant) writers were not going to have an episode full of answers. The show didn't roll like that. It was always a "what do you think it means?" kind of show. And that's cool. Having a few days separation from it, I can appreciate that. I don't love it, but I can appreciate it.

    I still think it will go down as one of the best shows on television. Mostly because it will be talked about forever because it was left open-ended. I would guess that series finales are the hardest to write. It's impossible to satisfy everyone, so what better way to attempt to satisfy everyone than to leave it up to them to figure out. Theories can bound for years over the significance of the details and the meaning of things. So I think it's rather genius of them to end it as they did.

    I agree with everyone has said about the relationships they all formed. I find it interesting that most of the time the episodes focused on individual characters and not as much on the impact they had on each other. It was always an underlying issue that was brought to light (ew, sorry for that) in the end. And it just made sense.

    Bravo, LOST.

    (And C, I would totally watch that show.)

  12. i'm totally okay with it (if the goofy nonsense about the light in the tunnel and the "plug" and cheesy music carried on much longer i would have imploded).

    i found myself really missing the Dharma Days myself. and, like everyone else, i agree that it all could NOT have been wrapped up with a nice bow. so what they did was appropriate and i was pleased that Christian came back to answer some of Jack's questions.

  13. Hmm... well, that was stupid, ABC.
