Well, what a load of bollocks.  So it was purgatory all along even though the writers said it wasn't going to be ages ago.  And how about all the unexplained crap they left out. 


At least it wasn't Sue Ellen waking up hearing the shower and Bobby coming out in a towel.


Who were the Dahma Project, how did an A-bomb from the 50s get there etc etc.

(That was Pam waking up to find Bobby in the shower)


I've never watched Lost, and feel so glad today, after reading all the moany comments on Facebook & elsewhere about the end. At least my shows have the decency to just peter out and become unwatchable after a few years, so I can just stop watching guiltlessly (X-Files).

I entertained (while doing other things, paying little to no attention to the droning) a friend on the phone last night, as she droned on and on about the Lost finale and what it all meant, lingering questions, etc. I wasn't a Lost-watcher. Never could find a reason to like or get into it; I tried once or twice and found better things to do.

Ditto (Alias, Heroes).

Though I'm still bitter over the premature plug-pull on ROME, and the recent demise of Law & Order.

I thought it was the best that could be hoped for.


 


Not that it was good, just no more that I expected.

I was happy with the ending, at least they didn't go and give us a run down on everything and ruin it like that.

I hate it when shows feel the need to explain everything to the viewer - that's when I turn off.

A lot of the things left unanswered were unimportant anyway or the answers were implied/inferred.

The number of people harping on about not knowing the MiB's name - who gives a flying h*ck it's not really important to the story only to building intrigue....

ETA: Oh.. and it wasn't purgatory, and they didn't kill the dog... you may need to rewatch it.... from the beginning

i think they should have had Mr Roarke and Tatto show up, "ok Dr Shepperd (if he even is a Dr) your visa is maxed out its time to go down to the end of the dock and get in the seaplane"

I must say, I'm looking forward to the finale of Law & Order tonight (in 35 minutes), in that there's nothing "to resolve" about the show. There is only to be sad that 20 years of consistently current entertainment is over. I didn't watch it weekly, but I watched often enough. It will be missed by both its long-time audience, and NYC itself (where will out-of-work or between-gig theater actors go for steady paychecks now?).

It really jumped the shark this past year. It's too bad, really. But at least we'll always have the good reruns!

Oh yes please! That would be great.  The return of the Sopranos would be good too.

The whole point of lost was the questions.  Every episode they introduced more question.  We tuned in for the intrigue.  When ever some one was going to explain things to Jack (or who ever) they were always called away just before the explaination.


So maybe not purgatory in the true Catholic sense but some where between life and death.  Oh yeh, somewhere between life and death accessable by captain nemo and his sub.  Or is it supposed to be a spiritual plain where random crap (except explainations) can happen?


The ending does tie it together, but it just pisses me off because the question was asked of the writer are the characters dead? Are they in some sort of limbo? The reply was no they are not.  It was also implied that it was something different and they were alive. And now we are told 'well yeh they were dead or in limbo all along'.

^ On the island they weren't dead....(as we were told continuously - what happened, happened) in the alternate world (their collective waiting room) their souls came together to journey onwards well that was when they were all dead, but it exists out of time. Miles, Desmond, Kate, Hurley, Ben all lived their lives Hurley and Ben on the island (for who knows how long) and Miles, Kate, Desmond continued their existence off the island. And when they eventually died their consciousness, beings whatever met together in their construct (waiting room).

I can't see why people think they were dead on the island... living people came and visited the island, when they died on the island they went onto the waiting room, or in some cases were trapped like Michael as a whisper...

The mysteries on the island were the intrigue that kept you guessing - but the story was about the redemption of the 'lost' souls of the people stranded there... of them making choices and changing (or not) their ways. It was a story about people, not about the island

Yeah, that's exactly how I took it too. I found the finale really satisfying actually.

I really enjoyed the way they made it about closure and summary for the characters, and not so much about 'the mysterious electromagnetic properties of the island'. I think its cool that in the end, all any of the characters know about the island is what other people have told them. Even Jacob and his brother - they didn't know what it was or why it was there - they just knew what their surrogate mother had told them and we can only presume that it was the same for her.

Yeah, I was happy. I'd been kind of let down so far this season because it had been more about the action and the mythology and less about the characters. Seeing all those characters happy together in that final seen was really worth it for me.

Well, now my mind is a pile of mush.
