Lost!!!!!

i think LOST was about the characters from day one. everyday people (with their backgrounds and futures shown) in a plane crash landing on a crazy island.

agreed they always said it's a character driven show.

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

So everything in between was "filler".

Christian Shepard what a pun...

I think it's pretty easy to see that the island was originally supposed to be purgatory. By the time the show got to season 4 with the oceanic 6 it was too late to follow that so they created the alt for season 6.

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..

i was thinking this too. they said they knew the ending of the show when they filmed the pilot. well the END was jack's eye closing. that was the only part of the end planned.

matthew fox said awhile back that he knew the ending. on JKL last night he said he knew the whole time the series would end with his eye closing.

I refuse to accept that Lost is about the characters. Look at the major season-ending cliffhangers...

Season 1 - they blow up the hatch right after Hurley sees the numbers stamped on it

Season 2 - Desmond uses the fail-safe key after Locke stops pushing the button

Season 3 - Jack tells Kate they have to go back to the island

Season 4 - the island disappears

Season 5 - they blow up a nuke trying to go back to the future

Season 6 - everyone's dead and they go to heaven because this show where everyone's on a mysterious island that can cure paralysis, cancer and gunshot wounds is all about the characters with daddy issues, right? right?

Wow, I am surprised at all the hate on the finale. I must admit, I was a little pissed at first, but the longer I sat on it, and thought about it, I started to love it. I was all about wanting most of the mysteries answered, but the finale proved that it was not what was important. The Island mysteries dont have an answer. They just are. There is no reason, there is no explanation it just is. It has always been there, it will always be there, and someone will always have to protect it. They gave us enough for us to put the pieces together, and figure out almost any question you could ask. I cannot think of a question, that I cant think about for a min or two, and come up with a good reasonable answer to it. Now, I have watched all the seasons at least twice, including this season, and all the special features, interviews and internet videos. So that helps in learning the answers I am sure.

That is one of the things that will make Lost live on for years to come. We will still be talking and debating what the reason for this and that was.

I was so afraid This whole season that the Alt was a reset. I thought it would be the out come of whatever happened on the Island. When I learned it was not, I was so happy. I did not want a reset on everything I had watched for 6 years.

+1.

Gut instinct when it went off was I didn't think I liked it. Thought about it for a minute and love and it more and more.

LOST has always been about the characters more so than the island mystery. Every season the producers preach that over and over. The ending was true to that thought process imo. The island mystery made the show interesting though.

Plus, Kate in that little black dress made be totally forget the long list of questions I had. Crafty bastards.

I am also amazed at the reactions to the ending. Did I like it? Not particularly, I also wanted more explanations of the science of the island. I'm tired of finales with heaven & hell, religious themes. That's why I loved the Matrix ending and not that of BSG. But in a funny way this ending was satisfying. It closed the story well.

BTW I thought I heard Christian say that in order to be redeemed, a person had to remember their own death too. Remember Ana Lucia (sp) and Daniel weren't ready.

But for anyone to say that the previous years spent watching Lost were wasted???????? That I will never understand, ever. You could not have had the ending we did without the story as it was presented, all of it.

So, what was the "something" that Desmond was? Any guesses? I loved how he told Eloise Hawking that he chose to ignore her. :D

I'll be watching it again, maybe tonight.

You don't have to wrap everything up in a pretty neat bow, but you SHOULD at least wrap it up in a way that makes sense.
