The Last Lost


Tonight is the big series finale for LOST, and I am really going to miss it after it's gone, but I think it ended at the right point in the show. Some shows just keep dragging on and on after the real beauty and creative spark is gone, and it become obvious that they are just bleeding a corpse for money {cough*xfiles*cough}.
Frank Conniff (TV's Frank on MST3K) If you've never watched "Lost," the finale will make so little sense that it'll seem like you've seen every episode.

TV's Frank is right. It doesn't make sense. I don't want it to make sense, either. Where's the fun in that? The fun part is the speculation - and like the real location of The Simpsons' Springfield {notquitePortlandOR} I don't think the answers will be handed to us on a platter - or maybe they will. Speculation...

There's a pre-show special that is on here from 6pm to 8pm, then the episode is from 8pm to 10:30, then Jimmy Kimmel has a LOST-themed show later in the night. Lots of frenzy over a TV show, but still a few hundred times less frenzy than there is over the Super Bowl.

The Cafe Society area of the Straight Dope Message Board is always rich with smart threads, and there is already a spot readied for discussion of this episode.

It's a real cult show, isn't it? I've never watched it and I'm kind of sorry now.

If you decide to watch it, make sure you start at the beginning.

That bit with Charlie and Claire was the one that got me the most. I have to say though that I would have liked it a lot more without that last 15 mins to half hour. I was really loving it up to that point. Now I want an alternate ending. Wait for DVD... maybe they will provide something... or maybe I will get a new perspective on it.
