“Lost” Ending: Winner or Loser?

Play Youtube Video

The Interwebz are ablaze today with chatter about last night’s “Lost” series finale. A lot of people are anti, a sizable minority are pro. Me? ... I’ve come to terms with it. I got six—well, five and a half, let’s say—highly enjoyable seasons out of the show, have a ton of indelible TV memories and got to watch the cast ride off into the sunset (kinda literally). None of that is diminished by a finale that failed to provide concrete answers to mysteries I knew wouldn’t be solved anyway. Though “The End” didn’t provide the monumental, soul-cleansing sense of closure I was wishing for, it didn’t diminish or alter anything that came before it. Of all the after-show buzz I’ve waded through, Noel Murray’s exhaustive analysis in The Onion’s AV Club is certainly the most well-thought-out. Give it a read here and see what you think.

    The show left us where we found it: lost.

    Not that it was "bad", just that it was nowhere near as good as all that came before.

    For certain is death for the born, And certain birth for the dead;

    Therefore over the inevitable, Thou shoudst not grieve.

    - from the Bhagavad Gita

    IMO, a lot of the folks who think it was great are just doing the "Emporers New Clothes" thing. Or not.

    Stand by for some plagarism:

    "Names in my ears Of all the Lost adventurers, my peers -

    How such a one was strong, and such was bold, And such was fortunate, yet each of old Lost, Lost! The final episode knelled the woe of years."

    Ok, I get it, it's about the people, not the island, but still!?

    We know "hell is other people", and so is heaven. No man is an island, though some women are beaches...
