I agree with Saturn and Reverbs.
Lost was a masterpiece. It was not for everyone though. Its not Gilligan's Island or Survivor. Its the wildest trip you have ever been on, filled
with, yes, lots of cliffhangers, game changers and total mind f(@ks! It is filled with symbolism and references to great books, mythology, music,
philosophy, history, science, religion, physics, metaphysics... so many things. You have to watch it on the surface as an adventure, but also deeper.
I usually watched it once for the story, then again to search for clues. Just when you think you know what's going on, everything changes. I loved
that aspect of it. Complete unpredictability. You have to pay very close attention to keep up. Back when it aired, there was a site called The
Fuselage where all the fans came together to discuss the episodes. It was a great community of minds working together, bringing what knowledge they
had to the table. I miss that.
To say I loved this show is quite the understatement. But you have to be sharp to keep up. If you are just watching it for entertainment value, you
will be lost eventually. You will need to use all your brain cells for this one.
One of the greatest aspects of this story is the characters. They are so rich. You will hate some and love some. Then you will love the ones you
hated, and hate the ones you loved. And somehow, you can both love and hate them at once in some cases. Obviously, the acting and the writing are top
As for the ending... the ending was written right after the pilot and they never changed it. They knew how it would end from the beginning and they
wrote towards that ending. After years of build up and mysteries, viewers had their own ideas of how they thought it would end. There was no way a
single finale could please everyone. It took time to process, but I am pleased with the ending and how it wrapped up everything they had been through
and why. I thought it was a beautiful ending. If you didn't get it, and feel questions remain unanswered, there are plenty of articles where you can
read how it all tied together according to the creators.
Don't let anyone steer you away Alphaz! You are in for a wild ride, lots of emotional upheaval, and quite possibly the best series you will ever
watch! You might decide it's not for you, like some others here. But you might be like some of the rest of us, and think its the best show ever!
(Season 4 is short, and somewhat lacking. There was a writers strike that year. Stick it out, it gets better!)
