"Amazing acting." Check, consistently great acting, the show's main attraction.

"Incredible direction." Check, probably the secondmost attraction -- however, "Jack's greeting of dead friends with his death on the island, should be shown in every Directing 101 class around the world" -- that would be true only if Jack's death weren't senseless in the context of the story.

"Character connections." Check, goes along with the acting, same attraction really -- however, "Admit it, you feel silly wondering about the Dharma food drops and other minute details now, don't you?" -- no, I don't, because they're completely inexplicable, so they detract from my willing suspension of disbelief, and being ultimately unexplained tend to ruin the story for me.

"The show spoke to us." Check, but in the end (literally!) what it said made no sense, and that's rather sad and at least a bit annoying, given the amount of time we devoted to it. :(

Thank you so much!! too often i hear nothing but berating reviews of shows that i love to death. this was an amazing finale, and a wonderful way to tie up the story of the castaways...yes thats right, the castaways...not the island...not the others...just the castaways. IMO it seems to me that the people who arent enamoured by these closing hours are people that wanted this to be the end to the story to the island. they wanted to know all about everything. Yes the food drops (who cares), whats MIB's name? (not the poinbt at all) or any of the other things they dropped 9or didnt drop on us) during these 6 seasons. they came their to do what they had to do and thats it. the islands story isnt over yet so why should we see an ending to it...but the story of the 815 survivors is over. they each played their parts, defeated the monster, saved the island and now their done.

Gah, I just really wanted Sawyer to end up with Kate, never liked Kate and Jack as a couple.

too bad theres haters of the ending.. not sure what they were expecting. All along the island was just the backdrop and setting for these characters and there stories. The Saywer/Juliette scene was amazing. I loved this ending, Jack dying on the island while at the same time all of them moving to the afterlife was so moving and powerful. Truly fantastic writing.

I agree with what said above. If you had all the answers where would the mystery be. Show me a TV show that was perfection for 6 seasons.That answered every single question in one neat little package. You have to admit though. Even the hardest of us fought back the tears at least once. Some of the best dramatic acting on TV ever. The best had to be Juliet and Sawyer's reunion.

I think the writers of LOST , did exactly that, they LOST their minds when writing such an insane plot. EXTREMELY sad to be led on for so many seasons only to have it end like that!!!!!
