    Could you elaborate, for us more casual watchers?

    Somehow, they all ended up on the Newhart set.

    :D

    I felt the same way, to a degree, from all the Western aspects--I'm just not a heavy Western guy. (I found the same thing in the original "Westworld" movie.) But once the show started featuring more of the harder core SciFi aspects, it picked up for me.

    I loved the original, deeply flawed as it was. But, I grew up with Roy Rogers, The Lone Ranger and the Cisco Kid, among many others.

    :)

    But, I’m also a sucker for sci-fi, mystery and action/adventure. Westworld is right in my wheelhouse.

    Yeah, when other kids were out playing cowboy, I was inside reading Isaac Asimov's "I, Robot." ;)

    Sadly, I did the same thing buying the series just before the final season for re-watch. Didn't sell but never watched them. The two moronic brothers "explanation" killed Lost it for me.
    Gotta say I love Titus Welliver as Bosch though. No harm, no foul.

    What is confirming multiple timelines here?

    Yeah, I wondered the same thing. Didn't see anything on that sheet to indicate that.

    Flashbacks was their thing from day one. If the scenes for those dates appeared in the same episode chances are they would have been filled in the same timeframe. So same day isn't that unusual.

    By the way, I recently found out that Lost is on Prime, and I've started a re-watch. Only a few episodes in (watched Walkabout last night). Still holds up after all these years. The writing, the music -- perfection.

    It was a joke based on a typo.

    The music is phenomenal. When I re-watched the show a few years ago with my son, this is the thing that really stood out for me. I honestly don't think the show would have been nearly as good without Michael Giacchino's brilliant score. It gave the show such a unique and palpable feel.

    Coming at the same time as the finales of two of the most iconic shows of this decade (Game of Thrones & Big Bang Theory), let's celebrate the first big finale of this decade, LOST. Nine years ago today, May 23 2010. While it certainly wasn't the first finale to become a cultural event (Sopranos, MASH, Breaking Bad, Newhart, Seinfeld, etc), it was the first of the widespread Internet era, what I guess has now morphed to "social media".

    Controversial endings seem to be the norm for these biggest of the big TV series (Sopranos, Lost, GoT, Seinfeld). It's much harder to stick the landing (BBT, BB). And while a great ending can move a show into the Pantheon of TV history (BB), not even a provocative one takes away the years of enjoyment it brought us. Online discussions, water cooler talk, cultural coverage (TV, newspapers, magazines, etc). It seems fewer and fewer shows are able to jump the hurdle and become a "Lost".

    Happy Anniversary LOST!

    PS: I think we should be careful and not let any conversation drift too far into talk of other shows. Spoilers, plus thread drift. Thanks.

    Just one nitpick, BB finale was after Lost ended (2013). Thinking of the finale and the last season of Lost still gets me PO-ed. Some of the more controversial ones that I initially didn't like I've grown to appreciate over time (Seinfeld and The Sopranos are two that come to mind). Lost is one that I invested a lot of time in and the last season to me just made no sense. I've talked about it probably ten times in this thread. The ride was great, but the destination sucked. It's if you were driving cross country to go to the Grand Canyon and when you got there it had been filled in and shopping mall had been built on top of it.

    That wasn't my point in that sentence. I was listing finales that became "big tent events". But I can see how it's confusing. I'll edit it out.
