LOST is one of the most important television programs in the history of syndicated story telling. Period. Genre-bending, ground-breaking, budget-busting, gloriously epic both in terms of character development and the scope of it's intricately-woven, mystery-laced narrative, LOST is the most unique television show ever produced. This note is me finally attempting to put down in words what the end of LOST really meant, and why it is the most satisfying ending fans could have ever hoped for.
It has been 1 year and 7 months to the day since LOST ended its six-year run on ABC. During that time-period I have watched the entire show over, and had time to really let my thoughts and feelings sink in. I have moved past the point where I believed the show was perfect in every way, and have achieved a new, and even deeper appreciation for what was done right.
To understand what the end of LOST was really about, we need to understand what the whole show was about. The title `'LOST'' proved to be a loaded one. During the first two seasons of the show we are introduced to the lives of all 14 major characters prior to their crashing on the Island. These first two seasons let us know what the show is focused on: the characters. Each and every one of these characters is geographically lost on this island, yes. However, They are also `'lost'' spiritually, emotionally, and in almost every philosophical way you could think of. Jack is a broken man, eaten up by regret and anger stemming from his complicated and often turbulent relationship with his father.Read more ›
Certainly my problem is with the whole season's flash-sideways, which after seeing the season finale, seems pointless and a little bit of a joke, I wish the season had been way shorter or that we got less flashes and more Island. Also even tough we get a lot of answers, some of them are shown in a very simple or even boring way, the final 4 or 5 episodes are gold, the others, seem like filler to me.
Now, there are no complaints for the Bluray edition of this season, the picture and sound quality it's superb, I tought I was gonna have a hard time watching the episodes which I didn't enjoy on TV, but the Bluray experience certainly makes them worth watching again. There are cool extras included here, the usual behind the scenes, spoofs and cast interview's stuff and "making of" of the season, but best of all, there is an epilogue included here, on the "The New Man In Charge" we get to see some of the after-finale timeline, and in a very clever way we are given more answers, more than I expected actually, it was so awesome to watch, I wish they had made more epilogues, but this one's just 'Lost' gold.
Even if you didn't like this season or the ending, I think it's worth getting to complete your collection, and specially because of the Epilogue.
If you haven't seen the entire series of LOST as I did & spent days into weeks streaming & watching each episode from Amazon, my suggestion is DON'T GET STARTED! The first four seasons are great--well acted, well designed, etc. constantly holding interest with each cliffhanger episode & season, but when it comes to wrapping their ever spinning more questions than answers story up, they fail quite miserably with the proverbial phallic finger directed so evidently to the entire world for ever investing time & interest in their lame & evidently as LOST as they are series.
If you stay with the series up to 4 & even through Season 5 you will be a lot happier than EVER watching Season 6. STOP WITH SEASON 5 is a sincere warning! The end of Season 5, yes, leaves you with a lot of questions and wondering of end-stories and unexplained character plots & history, etc. but nothing like the fiasco of Season 6 and how they chose to end the series. If you have any common sense in your brain whatsoever, it will really mess with a huge bunch of "well if you're going to conclude it this way, then what you did before doesn't make ANY sense whatsoever. Also, literary license doesn't even fit or even science-fiction with the miss-mash of storylines & final conclusion(s) to this season.Read more ›

I was about to begin watching Season 5 this weekend (time travel season) and thought about Season 6. Rewatching every single season on BluRay when they came out was a thrilling experience. I took the first disc out and that nagging word "pointless" crept in. It was overpowering. I... Read More

|no commentary on "The End"||
Im guessing they can not explain the ending themselves so they are ducking the commentary. Just a theory.
