Michael is stuck on the island whispering to people. Eko didn't want to be on the show anymore or something. Walt is 8 feet tall. lol

But all in all, if they wanted to tie it up that way... it's fine. It's just that's all they did. Two and a half hours of watching the same sequence over again. OMG these people know each other. I had NO IDEA. I've only watched this show for like 6 years. That didn't need to be 2.5 hours.

How about doing something with what people care about.. the island itself?

I'll say it right now. Best part of the series, end of season 1, and the intro into season 2 with the "make your own kind of music" scene. They never topped that zinger, although parts of 3-4 were really good. 5 and 6 were a waste of everyone's time.

I'd watch at least through Season 4. I didn't really like 5 and 6, but some will argue that 5 would be worth watching. And at that point you might as well do like the rest of us did and trudge through 6.

No, season 3 is still good.

I would watch that season and about 1/2 of season 4, then pretend the show got canceled.

Personally, I am starting to think that the writers spent too much time writing the spoof endings for Kimmel and forgot to write the ending for the actual show. By the time they realized what they had done, all of the sets were torn down except for the church so they just improvised and this was the best they could do.

The way they wrapped everything up with the characters was awesome. The way they wrapped up the show was horrible. I guess they figured they couldn't explain all the mysteries so they decided to explain nothing. I agree with Zcustom - the real appeal of the show was the island and the mysteries, and they just dropped the ball with all of it. With the way they ended things they at least had the perfect opportunity to explain Walt.

That's exactly how I feel about it. I liked the characters pretty good but I watched Lost for the plot and the mystery. I didn't watch Lost for the characters.

Glad to hear others feel the same way.

They could have spent an entire season explaining the electromagnetism and the source of the light and it would have easily been the best season.

If I wanted drama and human connection I'd watch Grey' Anatomy.

Story was the ending was written soon as the pilot was picked up.

So everything in between was "filler".

Christian Shepard what a pun...

There's been too much stalling and change of direction for me to believe that. I'll buy the "Jack's eye was closing" scene was planned, but seriously..

Exactly. The appeal has always been the mystery. It's ridiculous to think they could explain every little thing in detail, and even if they had, the show's legacy would lose a bit of its luster.

I think the ending was perfect. It was emotionally satisfying, and we're still left with questions about LOST. Anyone who didn't see that coming must not have been watching the same show I have for the last six years.

I'll be honest. I watched at least the first two seasons just to see Kate. I quit watching when they started splitting up and doing time travel. Which now makes no sense considering the ending, so I guess my instincts were correct.
