Two+ years after the final episode, my thoughts on Lost
Not going to say anything specific, in case there are others like me who want to see this series but haven’t yet. Truthfully, the big ending isn’t that much of a surprise, but there are specifics that are cool to find out in the course of watching.
I don’t see what all the bitching and moaning was about when the series ended. It took a long ass time to get to the end – that I’d understand complaints about. But the ending pretty much made sense to me, given all that had come before in the story. Nothing came out of left field or should have been unexpected. All the major characters got what they had worked towards and needed to find.
Maybe it makes more sense when you watch it all together instead of waiting each week for a new show.
I do know that it causes many, many dreams about characters from the show when you watch it 5 nights a week and all day and evening on Sundays for weeks.
Overall, my review is 3 out of 4 stars. It was fairly well acted – excellently in some cases, had good characters, the story was pretty classical in origin, and the production value was pretty good. Deduction of one star for having to back burner characters in the last season to catch everyone up to the same point. I get why it had to be done. With every season potentially being the last one, they had to wrap things up at least partially every season. Which left some character story arcs pretty well done while others were still waiting to be filled out.
If you have a lot of time to kill, I’d recommend this series.
