    Watch it again.

    Listen to Jack's dad. He said some died before Jack and some died after. In the sideways they all needed their constant or a reminder of everything that happened to them.

    Total agreement.

    I called it a year ago that the show would end with a closeup of an eye.
    Other than that, I had no clue.

    2 1/2 hours, at least an hour of commercials, and just a terrible ending.

    I really liked the BSG ending.

    I liked the LOST ending too.

    My problem with the way the story was resolved is that it makes everything about the "Flash Sideways" universe pointless. Why are Sun and Jin not married? Why is Nadia married to Sayid's brother? Why does Jack have a son? Why is the po-po after Kate this time?

    A ton of other questions, and none of it meant anything. Why would their version of purgatory be a world where the island is under water starting in the 1970's? If they created this purgatory for themselves, why make it different from the reality of the show?

    I disagree here. If you go back to the first few seasons, which I'd admit was before the characters were developed, the island WAS the story. Everything that we loved about lost was wrapped up in the island's story. Then, over time, the characters became well developed and their stories took focus. But that doesn't mean that the island's story, or the need to tell it, went away.

    The writers spent most of this season creating, and then explaining, a new story which was did little to advance the story from the first 5 seasons. This was my disappointment - so much time was spent on this new story that could have been spent on answering the original story, that when these questions remained unanswered one feels cheated.

    So in short, the feeling of fulfillment I have comes from the answering of this season's side story. :up: The feeling of disappointment comes from the failure to answer the story of the first 5 seasons. :thumbsdown::thumbsdown::thumbsdown:

    Just posting for the official tivo forum record- loved it and never went through a box of tissues within a 2.5 hour period so fast.

    It may just be me - but I found it satisfying for someone who has experience a lot of loss and grief. That's all that you want in the world, to be able to be reunited with lost loved ones, in some capacity - via a dream, heaven, or whatever you believe in.

    I don't get the hate. You can't look at the small details and say things like, "What about the time the sand was blue?! Huh?! What say you?!"

    it doesn't matter. The show was about bigger things. It was about the journey. The whole last season was about the island finding a new protector and the Losties finding themselves after death. Seriously. Anything else was window dressing.

    Lost. A bunch of broken people crash on an island. They are not the first to end up there. The island has a seriously odd mythology. There is a protector on the island, keeping humans from destroying it. There is also a monster. The bunch of people join together to fix eachother and survive. The island screws with them every chance it gets. Its magic. They have many adventures. They create such a bond, that they must enter Heaven as a group. The End.

    AND they pulled something off that is nearly impossible - they got me to watch something live, and with commercials! I guess they win in the end :)

    Well I caught up to the live feed around 10PM but when a commercial came around I paused it and did something else and came back to continue watching after a few minutes. I'm not going to watch commercials for any TV show, no matter how much I like it.

    A thing is a phallic symbol if it's longer than it's wide.

    Jack has a big one.

    I'm not saying it was bad, but that i am just not sure how satisfying it was for me personally.

    Yes. Jack came out of the jungle toward the beach after waking immediately after the crash and then laid down and died, that is how the story ends. In the pilot he comes out of the jungle thinking he is alive and starts saving dead people and that is how the story begins.

    It was sad when they showed the real wreckage and there were no survivors.

    The Island was a purgatory were the dead from many different crashes and wrecks over the years tried to figure out what the heck was going on. The light was what your supposed to go in when you die. They did not know they were dead and that is why they were so interested in the light and energy. That is all I can explain for now. Bedtime.

    I'll miss Lost. Best network drama ever.
