To My Friends Who Are Lost Fans
So I wasn’t in the office today, but I’m really curious to find out what Lost fans thought of the final episode.
Six years in the making is a long time, and it seems to me that there’s no good way to effectively (with any real satisfaction) wrap up such a large, sweeping timeline of characters and events.
A few questions for you all: what did you think of the final episode? Did they do the best they could, given the time? Do you feel let down in any way? Cheated?
I saw some rumblings about this, but was the ending sort of a “and it was all just a dream” type of endings?
Here’s a final loaded question (which I think I know the answer to). Was it worth it? Worth six years of watching and theories and discussion? My sense is that most would say yes, and the bulk of the enjoyment happens outside of the show, talking with others and trying to stitch the different details together.
It’s neat, from my point of view, to see so many people moved and interested in story. While I haven’t watched many episodes myself (I just watched the Pilot, which was very good)… I understand the draw.
Just curious what you all think of it, now that the story has come to a… close?
