Back in May I said I was going to watch all of Lost in one year. Today, I finished it.
Without ruining it for anyone who hasn’t watched it… Well, maybe I’ll ruin it.
Bullet number one: they should have quit after season 5. A nuclear explosion would have been a glorious way to end this series. Sure, it would have left lots of questions unanswered. It would have left a lot up to your imagination. However, it would have been wonderful. Wonderful I tell you. I’d have opted with the opinion that it was all erased. None of it ever happened. I would have bought the series on Blu-ray.
Bullet number two: the last 20 minutes of season 6 were so incredibly stupid I was starting to be irritated with myself for watching the whole series. The magical rancid poison for a perfectly well written science fiction program is to explain it all away with some kind of religious dogma (not to be confused with Battlestar Galactica which is built around religion – and a fine series).
If you follow the above link, you’ll notice that I said that the writers of Lost seem to be very good. After the last 20 minutes of season 6, I have looked up the creators and will avoid, like the plague, anything else they create. They are: J.J. Abrams (stupid ass number 1), Jeffrey Lieber (stupid ass number 2), and Damon Lendelhof (stupid ass number 3).
I wonder why Michael and his son didn’t get to go to heaven with the rest of them? Racial tension? And how did Claudia manage to spawn two white children?
