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.
Well, it started out great didn't it? Alas, the writer's strike shortened fourth season and the major (MAJOR) let down of the fifth and final season merely confirmed what the creators had been denying the whole time, that they had just been making it up as they went along...
