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.
Lost started out as a series about a group of castaways stuck on a mysterious island. Throughout the 6 seasons it veered off in a lot of different directions. The final season was really about telling the backstory of the island, and revealing the fates of the characters. I think your level of enjoyment of the last season will really depend on what you think of the story of the island and the big reveal at the end.
In this season we finally get to see Jacob and we learn who and what the smoke monster is. The monster takes Locke's form and Terry O'Quinn plays a great bad guy for really most of the 16 episodes. We are also shown flash sideways which shows an alternate timeline for the characters. It is based on the premise that the plane does not crash (that detonating the bomb at the end of season 5 worked), but we find that the characters do not exactly go back to their old lives. That things have changed significantly. It also provides the opportunity for bringing back some of the characters that had been previously killed off. That story is shown concurrently with the bomb not working and everyone still being stuck on the island.
The ending is really open to interpretation. We find out that the sideways world was not real but a kind of limbo, hence Desmond waking everyone up. In the end we learn that everyone has died and is meeting again in the sideways world. We do not know however if they died in the initial crash, if all the events on the island really played out as we saw, or if the plane really makes it off the island in the final shot of the show.Read more ›
