Lost-"The End": One Year Later

Everyone "moves on" on Lost

I wish I had time to put together a full post about my feelings on the Lost finale after having a year to think about it.

Personally, I loved the finale. Sure, it didn't answer all of my questions or explain every little detail, but I didn't expect it to do that. For me, it was a fully satisfying 2.5 hour telecast that kept me engaged the entire way. I still tear up every time that the final music cue turns up in my iTunes, when I think about the passing of the baton from Jack to Hurley, when I remember Sawyer and Juliet's kiss in the sideways, when I remember Jack and Smokey's final battle, when I remember the scene with everyone in the church, or the final image of Jack closing his eye.

Whenever I think of those moments I remember this show as one that took me on a roller coaster ride that had me hooked from the first turn. When it finally pulled into the station, I had no hard feelings, only thoughts of what a great ride it was.

Now, it's your turn. Has your view of the Lost finale changed over the course of the year? What moments remain your favorites?

  1. I really liked it when I first saw it about six months ago (I didn't start watching the show until after it had already ended), but the more I think about it the less I do. It wasn't a bad final episode by any means, and the emotional pull was definitely there. But it failed to answer some of the most basic questions, such as what the sideways universe was and how it got created. I wasn't expecting a huge amount of answers, but there were almost none.

    Like your blog, by the way. I'll definitely be reading these old TV posts you've got planned, since "FNL" and "Veronica Mars" are both excellent shows.


Some ground rules for you to follow when commenting here:
1. This is probably the most important rule: be nice. I will not tolerate any rudeness towards other commenters or myself.
2. Be relevant, comments will be deleted if they are not relevant to the discussion.
3. No spoilers, I and many other people don't want to know what your mother's, sister's, best friend's, brother said about what's going to happen on Chuck. There are many places for discussing what's going to happen on the show in the future, this isn't one of them.
