Lost: Final Episode
If you watched Lost for the past 6 seasons, what did you think of the final episode?
I think they ended it in true Lost style, answering a few questions but creating more questions. Before this last season I was thinking that they were all dead anyways (in purgatory- which was close) or in a mental institution (all made up in someone's head).
I think that in the first few seasons the writers were just making it up as they went; but in later seasons they had to actually start tying things together. The last season spent a little too much time on the Man in Black (Smokey/Dead Locke) and they didn't explain what happened to him.
I'll look forward to the DVD since they will usually put deleted scenes in.
What did you think?Verified Libra- There sure are a lot of people born in August around here.

I have actually never observed one episode of the show.Do not war for peace. If you must war, war for justice. For without justice there is no peace. -me

I was surprised by the final episode; I didn't expect them to come down so definitively on the side of faith rather than science. But it actually did make sense. I thought it was a very cool and creative ending. I liked the show for trying to take on the big existential questions, and the ending really took it to the next level. I'd be pretty happy if the afterlife were really like that.

I think they just needed to tidy up the mess the writers had got into(too many weird plot twists)
Having them all in gods waiting room was a bit of a cop out for me.
Still I'm just relieved I no longer have to try and explain the plot to my wife!!!the sole advantage of power is that you can do more good.

It worked for me.
I'm someone who wants to know why X happened back in chapter 4, if Y was meant as a rouse in chapter 16 or if the author changed his mind and how everything turned out for minor characters not mentioned since Chapter 9.
But a book is a whole different thing. If there are loose ends, go back in the story and fix them. Can't do that with a serialized story if you're writing it on the fly like TV is doing. Heck grandpa would come up with some fantastical explanations for the tales he'd make up. Why should I hold some TV writer to a higher standard?
So yeah, I'm cutting them a lot of slack.
I do tire of religious symbolism being used as a band-aid though. The church meetup was fine, and if that's where they stopped, great. But very late in the game they introduce other stuff that wasn't necessary. Couldn't we have let that falcon punch on the cliff be the highlight of the Jack/MIBLocke fight? Do we really need Jack to be stabbed in the side? Enough already with trying to give your main character some Jesus cred.
In the end though the wrapup worked fine. It hinted at some answers, left plenty unaddressed too, and each viewer is welcome to apply their own interpretation. I don't mind that. I enjoy movies I'm still thinking about days later to ones I'm forgetting as I exit the theater.
Sentimentality pushed through to schlockly a few times. Again though, my viewing. I found it most interesting which couple's "waking" scene had the most impact on various viewers I've talked to or read - it aligns pretty well with where they are in their lives.
So it worked for me. Maybe the audience reaction is the ending I'm more interested in though.

I actually tried but never made it through an episode. When It first came on I thought it was going to be a sort of modern-day Gilligan's island without the humor. It was just too "out there" for me.*************************"It wouldn't take much for me to up and run...to another life somewhere in the sun."*************************"There's something inherently wrong with having to put on a bullet-proof vest and a gun to go to work."-(An old friend)

I watched it when it started. Maybe the whole first season... then it just got too weird and too hard to keep up with. And I couldn't tell when they were running a new episode versus some slightly re-edited/twisted take on a rerun.Voting against incumbents until we get a Congress that does its job.
