Lost > The End > Comments Page 2
i think overall the final series was disappointing and kind of expected an anti climax ending the writers really could have satisfied our questions a bit more but seemed to tease and somewhat manipulate the viewers to the end i was an avid fan since the first ever episode and really did expect to have more answers at the end even a few more we never saw if the plane succeeded getting off the island in the last episode and what happenned to hurley and ben the sun and jin sideways story was confusing but all said and watched i really was in love with the whole thing and will really miss it
Was that a serious question? You obviously don't watch the show, why even ask?
The End doesn't matter.
The Ride did.
Could you please try and explain this please anybody how are they at the two places at once and get those "flashbacks" or are they even at the same time?
If I where to take on your point in watching the show, I would've watched the first season and made up the rest in my head after that and quit watching....not the way to follow a story. You simply don't END a series like this with questions.
Sure it was a character based series as well, but are you saying it wasn't based on mystery either? Because it was! How hard is it to wrap up the character aspect AND the mystery aspect of it? Well it's hard to do when you're lazy! When you tell a story of mystery, you reveal it at the end. Have you ever read a mystery novel and found they don't tell you who the killer (or w/e the mystery is) is at the end? No...but thats what they basically did with this series which makes it a terrible ending.
Like I said, they posed so many mysteries they didn't know how to close them all...and sadly that's where the writers failed.
I find it very sad they ended it this way. It could've been such a GREAT story!!! To bad they got lazy. I suppose i
I feel I've been a pretty avid fan of Lost. However, I was terribly disappointed in the final season. I thought the Jacob/MIB background story was downright crab. Surely the writers could have come up with a better origin for the smoke monster. I thought the finale stunk as well. This show had the potential to be one of the best series ever create, if not the best. However, it almost seems the writers were forced to come up with things to keep the show going. I think the whole alter-reality idea was the kiss of death for the show. I also can't believe they never explained where the ancient parts of the island came from (temple, statue, bottom of waterfall) given that they were such an important part of the show. I guess I'm one seriously disappointed Lost Fan.
the last episode was boring and so cheesy.its sad really.im so dissapointed
To all you people that thought that ending sucked, I feel sorry for you!! Does everything have to be spoon fed to you people?
All the un-answered questions were left open for each and every one of us to determine the answer in our own way. Use your own imagination people!!!! There is no way that Lidelof/Cuse could ever write an explanation for all those questions and the end result being satisfying to all us viewers. You want to know what the Smoke Monster is? you want to know what the Island is? you make that part of the story up on your own, cause I promise that whatever theory you come up with is going to be better to you than any answer the Lindelof/Cuse could ever give us! LOST has ALWAYS been a story about the Characters, The ending could not have been executed more perfectly. All the real fans of the show know this…..so please, stop crying about not getting any answers, I and a lot of other people are getting annoyed with it!
I for one I thought that this was one of the greatest endings. It didn't answer all the questions that plagued us for 6 seasons, but that wasn't the point. I understand the show started with more questions than answers but the show was about the people and their journey's. I give great praise to the creators of "Lost" for giving us a masterpiece of entertainment for 6 years.
I never expected to see all answers. And I kind of like the "island-Ending", but the alternate history - edning just didnt made any sense - Atomic bomb? Desmond as a failsafe? Widmores plan? All the extras in the sideways (inklusind the bad guys)?
I thought the Lost would end with everybody on the island dead and the flash-sideway-people somhow travel to the island to wrap things up. That would have been much more logical.
In the end the writers were "LOST" their creativities. Poor ending... They left millions of questions behind. I think they will try to continue... for the answers...
But once again final was horrible....
Anyone who thought this was a great episode watched this series for the wrong reasons IMO.
This series was about posing mysteries and when you do that...you ANSWER them. Instead they where extremely sloppy and got lazy in the final epsisode. The writers found them selves with so many loose ends to tie up they just didn't feel like doing it...and decided to plop them all in a church...boom all dead...all together...there ya go happy ending. WTF?? TERRIBLE!
Just a list of things there where not answered and they where lazy about
The true nature of the islands energy..and how it was discovred?
How did the energy create the smoke monster...and where did his humanity go?
Where where characters such was Charles, Daniel F, Robert, and a TON of other characters in the "afterlife?
And what was with all the extra story lines in the "Afterlife" if it never actually happened? Pointless!
Ugh, so many more loose ends it's terrible. I should've know they would leave so many things unans
The writers of "Lost" ran out of material and imagination around the 3rd season, then they filled the screen with too many back stories, flash forwards and flash sideways. What is a sideways flash anyway. Then, they used the trite deus ex machina to end the series. We viewers were left with many unanswered questions. And to use purgatory is just hokey. It had a terrible ending that let its viewers down.
I really expected more of an actual explanation, not an excuse not to explain anything. Why compass bearing 325? Eh, doesn't matter; all part of purgatory. Why did Walt appear on the island after he "left," and why was he so special? Not important, apparently he was a figment of everyone's imagination, since he didn't "move on" or even appear in the final episode. What exactly is the black smoke monster? Don't know, don't care. He was just there to torture poor souls in purgatory. Who are all the people who travel to and from the island? Whitmore and his henchman, the scientists, etc. Were they just there to move along the purgatory plot? Were they imaginary or are they other souls? What happened to Alex? She died on the island. Why didn't she get to come along? Well, she just wasn't ready to move on, I guess. Circular reasoning is what it is, begging the question in the true sense of the phrase. For example: Question: Why was purgatory an island? Answer: Because that's what purgatory
if you expected answers and things that would make you feel complete, then you were not true fans. Lets face it, Lost wasnt going to spill out every secrets it had. Trust me, I wanted to know more about the Dharma initative and why they took Walt. But I dropped my questions and embraced those happy moments of love that made me melt. So if you thought the ending was shitty, too bad for you. You invested 6 years into this show, the last thing you wanted to walk away with was dissapointment. But that's your choice.
I will never forget the ending. They were right, this was a changing moment.
it was such a cheesy ending ... they managed to ruin everything that had made the show so exciting :(
I just didn't like the ending.It seemed more developed for the cast than the viewer. The Bright Light turns out to be such a disappointment. The MIB comes from that??!! What?! And all Desmond does is pull off the rock?
I really expected the two realities to merge or something Epic to occur. Obviously it didn't.
there is no way that that is the real Juliet you guys are so gullible its not even funny lol fyl
I loved the final episode!!!! It was fantastic.
There is nothing more boring than a series like this ending with everything wrapped up with a pretty bow around it. Those are the mindless dime a dozen programs that have filled television viewing hours for decades. I love the fact that much of what we wanted to know is left up for our interrpretation. That's how life is. We don't have the answers we might like in our relationship with our spouse, children, friends, etc. Why do we think we must know everything about the Lost world and its characters? That would be unrealistic.
When I saw so much negativity at this posting site, it reminded me how much people like to wallow in "what's wrong" with things in the world. The show, in fact, has been a heck of a ride for six years, inclunding the final night. Count me in as someone who has been priviledged to enjoy this program from start to finish, and prays that another show in the future can bring the same kind of interest and exciteme
i would have really liked to have seen Locke turn into the black smoke b4 our eyes i thought for sure they would show that, and i would of liked them to have gone more in depth w those on the plane and what happened when they returned like Richard , disappointing
Extremely disappointed! I had such a high expectation of finale and expected at least main mysteries to be explained and it ended up so boring and with no excitement, no mysteries were answered, some characters dies, some stayed alive, some left on the plane (that was actually the most ridiculous thing!). It felt like producers just ran out of ideas or were not able to agree how to end so many loose ends to ended it in the most trivial, undefined way... Also with that many mysteries they created over the last 6 years I guess it was hard to put it all together at the end to make sense. At least I wanted to have clarity of what island IS and when characters dies (if assumption is they are all dead). Anyhow...i felt like i waster my time and wish there is a way to redo this ending!
I enjoyed the finale because I was in it for the character and emotional driven moments. I could care less about the mythology of the island. And while Shannon could be considered Barf-worthy from the pilot episode on, I believe Sayid deserved some happiness. He was never going to have it with Nadia.
I thought that Lost had as good an ending as anyone could ask for. With such a dynamic show, everyone had their own interpretation of EVERYTHING that happened, so it's obvious that at least half of the fans would be disappointed by the finale. However, I was looking for only one thing from the finale that I felt we all deserved as fans: closure. Anyone who watches Lost and had any sense at all knows that if you look for answers, you will come away disappointed. The show isn't about the answers, it's about the search for answers. Yes, it would have been nice to have a little bit more of the typical Sci Fi flare that fans fell in love with (ie Smokey), and the scene in "Hell" (the underground pool) was definitely lacking in the epic scale that I had grown used to from Lost. However, I felt like the message delivered by the show's writers was perfect, and no one can beat ending a show the exact way it started. What I would be interested to hear would be how all of the critics of the final
Horrible, i would not waste a minute of my life for this BS if i knew it would end like this. The only thing good about the lost finale was the target commericals.
I was led to expect "WOW!" All I was given was "awwww"... boatloads and boatloads of "awwww". If that's what I wanted, I would go to the pet store and watch the kittens and puppies.
