Don't Read This!!!

If you didn't watch the series finale of Lost yet, don't read this. Wait until you've watched it, then come back.

First off, Boone is hot. Just had to get that out of the way. I was glad to see him for just a few minutes at least.

But where was Michael? And the annoying kid? Walter! How come they didn't get to come meet up with everyone in heaven? (Not that I minded too much - I didn't really like them.) Basically, if you weren't a couple, you didn't get to heaven. Except Boone, probably because he's hot.

And how unsatisfying that they call it a resolution, when all it was is everyone meeting up in the afterlife, since they're all dead. I mean, sure, they held true to the "dead is dead" philosophy, but seriously? That is not closure.

I was with it right up to the point when Jack started talking to his father. At that point, it became just another Dallas moment - where an entire season was a dream just so they could get Patrick Duffy back, or Newhart... "Honey, you won't believe the dream I just had." Lame.

As Brad said, "I just wasted 120 hours of my life."

Okay, maybe not all wasted, I just feel cheated. There were no answers here, just another intense, very good episode. Only this time instead of leaving us hanging and wanting more, they wrapped up with five minutes of crap.

I'd go so far as to say I think even Seinfeld ended better. Leaving the main characters in jail is better than saying "Hey, we're not going to tell you what really happened to any of them. We're not going to explain anything about the island, just introduce you to a new shiny place there. We'll just let you know they all got to the afterlife. Because they all died at some point. Just like everyone else."

I am done now.

Oh my heck... I don't watch LOST so I really have no idea what you are talking about... Except that I googled Boone and he is Damon on the Vampire Diaries... Just thought I'd share, and um, can I add him to my list?

Just watched the finale, and I couldn't agree with you more! I'm making up my own ending. Also, what about Echo, and Daniel and Charlotte and Miles and Lapidis?

Okay. I am also done now.

I'm with you about the whole "where all all the characters" thing. Don't they all get to go to heaven? But this was Lost. I didn't expect them to tell us all the answers. That is what the show was genius about - leaving you hanging and wondering. Why would they change anything for the end?

The other thing is that I don't think the writers ever could come up with the answers, thereby making the show a lost cause from the very beginning.

My wife is no longer allowed to read your blog. There are enough "HOT" influences in all her other shows, I don't need you pointing out new ones to her.
