LOST: Final Thoughts.

I gave myself a day to ponder on the show as a totality, as the sum of all its parts which I’ve picked on and needled and enjoyed and appreciated and hated and dogged and questioned quite extensively for the past six weeks. Here’s my final conclusion: It just wasn’t a good story. It had its moments, absolutely. Stripping it down to the bone, Jack had a fully realized and ultimately satisfying character arc. He […]

LOST: The Big List (final version)

As you all doubtless know by now, about six weeks ago I decided to run a marathon of Lost. If for some reason you don’t know then I recommend reading Intro to a Lostathon. Sunday night was – as pretty much everyone also knows regardless of their personal interest – the finale. I already posted my notes for that episode, but those were episode specific. With this post I’ll be going back to look at […]

LOST: Top Things I Need Explained

This’ll be a quick and dirty post, as I’m cutting it to the wire and want to stake my claim now. Here are things I really want/need explained in this finale. I’m going to skip the big stuff that I’m sure will be addressed (ie: who survives, how the two timelines come together or are resolved, etc.), but be sure that if they’re not that I’ll be back to talk about it. In no order […]

<i>Lost</i>athon: 6x11 to 6x14

**Note: With 6×14 we have only one episode to go before we’re caught up with everyone else. Unfortunately we won’t have any time at all to watch that episode before Sunday. So Sunday morning we’ll watch 6×15 and I’ll post my notes. Then I’ll go back through my Questions list and integrate Season 6 up to the finale. I’ll also probably gather my thoughts and expectations (as low as they may be at this point) […]
