The End

The End

We just watched the last episode of ‘Lost’ and have been thinking about what a big role the show has played in our lives. We started watching it soon after we got married, we lived in the place it was filmed, we sat on the beach with thousands of other people to see season premiers, we’ve watched it religiously our entire married life. I admit that last season and much of this season I haven’t been as engaged in the episodes, but I did really like the emotional closure of the finale. Yes, there were lots of dead ends and unanswered questions, and yes, any number of shows with completely different plots could end in a similar way and be satisfying. But still. It made me happy. I’m glad we’ve been fans and I look forward to years from now, when we can afford Netflix (or maybe the box sets), to watching it all over again.

What did all y’all think?

Oh, and JATERS RULE!!!!!!!!

  1. I too had not been as engaged in the last couple of episodes, but I loved the finale. I felt that a lot of characters who had lost some of their voices (ie Sawyer’s ridiculously huge number of nicknames) finally got their voices back and they were the characters I had come to know and love back in season 1. I agree that the finale could have been interchanged with a number of shows, but the closure it gave me for ‘Lost’ was exactly what I needed. Hhhmmmm, I loved it.

  2. I loved it as well. I have to admit that Jon and I had to read up on it on line to understand it better, but I remember decidedly liking it even when I wasn’t sure what to make of it all. I agree that I still have some unanswered questions, but I felt like I was able to get to know the characters and watch their relationships grow and felt like that was one of the biggest ideas in the series- that of relationships and how important they are. I thought it was fantastic.

  3. I loved the first 5 seasons of Lost, and there were some really great episodes this last season (my favorite being the one about Richard/Ricardo), but I was let down by the finale. I felt like we just got more questions and it was fairly predictable. It didn’t help that someone told me there was a HUGE shock at the end which never came (we watched it a few days late); I think expectations play a huge part, and I would have enjoyed it more without that false expectation. But at the same time it gave you a lot to think about, and there’s definitely something to be said for that.

    Overall, I definitely loved the show, and they had some of the best episodes of TV I’ve ever seen. My favorite episode of all 6 season is The Constant – I just loved Desmond and Penny’s relationship, they did so awesome with that. So with all that being said…

    “It’s the end of the world, brother!” :0)
