Lost > The End > Comments Page 3
The finale reeked of poor planning on the part of the writers. Very little answers and a vague conclusion make the whole series feel like an admission of not having a slight idea of how to conclude the story. I can't help but think of an ending of a Simpson epidsode where Lisa states there was no moral to the story. Homer concludes by saying "Exactly! It's just a bunch of stuff that happened." That is Lost in a nutshell.
I was extremely disappointed with the series finale.
I only recently discovered Lost and have followed the entire series with my son since January, so the plot line is very fresh for me. I really enjoyed the series and, as a hardcore SciFi fan, was encouraged when the Dharma Initiative unfolded and was hoping for an alternate universe or two. I guess that's the difference between SciFi and fantasy fans. I was spellbound by the first three or four seasons. Unfortunately, things really unraveled in the sixth season. I believe the writers were scrambling to come up with answers to cool questions that were posed earlier in the series, but most answers made no sense and seemed to be a quick fix. The story line didn't flow or connect correctly and I was dumbfounded that the final "out" was an afterlife experience.
Overall, this was an extremely entertaining television experience; something I wouldn't expect from broadcast TV. I just wish that the full story had been thought o
This idea of exactly how purgatory works disappointed me. Up until now they've left the idea up to personal interpretation. Last night, they threw down rules. Parameters. If it exists, how it exists and how we work our way through it is personal (and oftentimes faith-based). The idea that we can move on as groups depending on others actions to carry us to eternity? Is my grandma in purgatory waiting on me to move her into eternity. Who will I wait on?
I already have a belief system and (try to) live it daily. Should have stuck to the science, boys ... I don't go to TV for answers on salvation.
Extemely disappointed and upset does not even begin to describe how I feel after last night's finale! I am getting so sick of hearing Lindelof and Cuse tell us that this was always a "character-based" story. C'mon - what a cop-out! If it was a character-based story then put character's in real life situations, not sci-fi, fantasy, cartoon realities. Why a smoke monster if this is a "character-based" story? Why magic numbers and magic light-houses and immortal guardians if this was a "character-based" story? Why flash sideways into a view of purgagory or limbo or wherever the new age hell that was supposed to be if this was "character-based" story? This was a science-fiction, fantasy story that got completely away from its writers! They had no idea where it was going, and it wandered all over the map, and somehow they needed it to end. They tell us that after season one that the "characters" are not dead and having experiences on the island. After season six, they tell us that
Oh, by the way. i was kind of disappointed we didn't get to actually see the SMOKE MONSTER. i mean, come on, a season finale without the scary black smoke we've all come to love so much?
but anyway, Elizabeth, if you get to see this, i would like you to know that i've especially loved seeing you on this show, besides the great character AND acting. if you happen to see this, i will probably not be back on this site, so if you see this, i would love nothing more than just the absolutely shortest email (firstname.lastname@example.org) just to let me know that you've seen it. It would absolutely make everything (so much more) worth it (if that is even possible.) Thank you so much. :)
I just watched the finale, and all i gotta say it that yes, i was a bit disappointed at first when i realized that a lot (yes, A LOT) of mysteries weren't solved\explained\answered. BUT then i thought about it again, and i realized that i would probably be a lot more disappointed if they WERE all explained, because then i'd know everything, and i wouldn't keep thinking and pondering for prbobaly the rest of my life about this amazing show.
In conclusion, my next plan is to start watching the whole series all over again. who's with me? :D
cant believe its finished loved it .what happened walt
no real answers
deus ex machina - god did it!
lazy lazy writing by the storytellers
This was not at all the ending I thought it would be, I was almost certain they would go with when jack blew the island up it created this new world cause the plane did not crash. Juliet even told Ford "It worked" The way they took the show was awful, and made no sense, purgatory...? are you serious, ok so what do you do for those characters that didn't die (Kate, Ford, Miles, ect...) How can they be both dead and alive on the island? If they had gone with Jack created the universe when he blew up the island it would have made sense... I have a question that I know won't be answered cause its kind of a goof by the writers... In season one someone is drowning in the water and Charlie gets Jack telling him he cant swim, then why in season 4 suddenly he is a pee-wee swim champ? In season 1 they also give Helen the identity of a Phone sex girl (She tells Locke any longer and hell have to pay $86.95) Why do they suddenly give Helen a new identity in season 2? Why does Charlie seem to know i
I doubt that this is actually Elizabeth Mitchell, but if it is please know that Julliet was an awesome character thanks to your acting skills. V is awesome, keep up the amazing work!
There are still a lot of questions to be answered but the director did say we would still be theorizing once it was over.I wish it hadn't ended where they were all dead and in "Heaven." I wanted more. Btw I dont think "Juliet" from the show would actually be responding on here and using her "friends account." I think she is too busy filming V.
Those idiots almost ruined the show! A couple of sorry guys got excited about the success of the first season SO MUCH that they almost completelly ruined the next 5 years! Sorry guys but you're wrong.
What can I say though... good that there is enough room to undo the damage, i.e. for another seasons! Yes, that's correct - another season! Why? THE CREATORS HAD MANY MORE LIFE IDEAS WHICH THEY COULD HAVE REALIZED IN THE SHOW, AND THEY SHOULD HAVE, BUT THEY NEVER DID! NEVER!
Here's some insight:
1. No answers about why Walt was a "very special boy"
2. No answers why smokey sounds like a mechanical robot.... ??
3. What's so special about those numbers? Reason???
4. What about the Ancient Egiptians building the Statue and the bottom of the temple with corresponding symbols and drawings all over the place? What's the connection?
5. Makes no sense about what "dead guys wispers in the jungle" are.
6. No explanation why ashes were holding the smokey back... or the "fences" ?
7. And m
Elizabeth... I've been waiting for you all season! You were the reason I began watching the show.. I have a thing for blondies, lol.. but I really wish you the very best with everything post-Lost.
I have to say it was the most amazing thing shooting Juliet's final scenes & we all had a really emotional journey. It was my birthday at the same time & everyone was so lovely & we actually celebrated it after the hospital scene so yeh it was very moving & I was just happy to ever be apart of it let alone be in the finale. So thank you all, all those fans out there who routed for Juliet to continue to be on the show.

love Elizabeth Mitchell aka Dr. Juliet Burke.
