Rewatched this a few years ago, and although its style is a little generic; for me one of the greatest series of all time. Such mystery and excitement during this one.. A shame these kind of super shows which run for seasons and season don't seem to be happening anymore (24, Prison Break, etc)
There was a before and after Lost in my life. Lost was not only about figuring out if the multi-ethnic cast was floating in the ocean on the top of a giant turtle or if the smoke monster had psychological complexes. It was about that six degrees theory and ultimately, the deep connections between the characters bla bla bla. Ok, I am aware I've been dramanipulated. Post series depression is a real thing.
Everytime I'm on a plane I think of J.J Abram's outstanding opening in Lost's Pilot(heh). I mean, I think about this a lot,have been thinking about it since 2004.And you know what? There is only 1 TV show as much or more of a masterpiece that Twin Peaks and it is Lost. To me,it's an eternal classic,all in its breadth & wonderfully entertaining filler,from this wistful time where TV was 24 eps a season.Just ask me why
I know many fans would punch me in the face, but I don't think the ending was all that bad. Actually, I think much of the show's suggestive power lies in it. Finding within yourself the meaning you want to assign to that island can be a powerful and deeply changing experience.I know it was to me.
However, I do agree that too much time was invested in details that would go on to become plot holes or loose ends.
