At first I thought it was purgatory but then they said it wasn't… but now I'm 99.99% that it's God.

Yeap—I mean there's no other explanation, it's all God.

And I want you to remember this that Fern said it was God first.

What's your theory?

At the end it wipes to Hurley who is writing a novel. He finishes and the title of the story says: Lost.

Yes, that's right. Deus Ex Machina.

if you arrange the letter it spells “lots”
meaning there will be a lot of lost people and guest actors before they tell you the whole story

I wholly agree with this one. I'm sure they had an idea at the start, and it probably was something like purgatory, but too many people guessed it and they're just dragging the series out until they can figure out what they actually want to happen.

I've still sort of been enjoying LOST, but as it goes on I've started to get this fishy feeling that Inkmonkey and Subcultured may be right. I'm going to give it a while longer, and if it doesn't start to go somewhere I'm going to devote my time elsewhere.

This seems to be the most impressive thing related to “Lost' ;)

To be honest, I can't get into any of these ‘soap opera’ shows that keep you hanging for more than 2 episodes. ‘Lost’, ”Desperate Housewives', ‘24’, ‘Prison Break’, etc, etc. More and more soap shows seem to be cropping up, too. It's enough to put me off TV entirely.

The appeal for broadcast companies is pretty obvious; keep the viewers hooked and wanting more. But eventually, you gotta tie things up!

I like self contained stories. Something you can watch, enjoy, and walk away from.

“To a rational mind, nothing is inexplicable. Only unexplained.”

They all should die before anything happens.

The only show I really watch anymore is Psych.

Better than that LOST thing.

Some of the Lost writers are former comic-book writers and writers for animated shows like Batman: The Animated Series. That's why the show is paced like a comic book. The series started off pretty weak, but once they started spending more time on the island and less time with the flashbacks to the predictable lives of the characters, it got really good.

For creative people, the show is also a very interesting media experiment to watch.

Have you noticed the fake commercials that sometimes run during the normal commercial breaks? The Dharma Corp / Hanso Corp have some cool fake Web sites too.

The writers are telling the story across different media and the audience can experience as much or as little of it as they want.

“lost” stands for:

Lots
Of
Stupid
Tales

I DID care what was going on… but after this many years without ANY revelation of WTF is going down, I've given up.

And someone tell me why Hurley is still fat?

I'm with Kevin Parera of G4 TV. Screw this show… I've got “Heroes” to watch now!

I'll wait until LOST completely ends as a show… get the DVDs from Netflix and watch it in its entirety without worry of being kept in the dark for forever.

watch, as ratings start to go bad, they'll never get to teh last episode. same thing happen to a fox show “reunion” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reunion_(TV_series) which had someone be a murderer, but they never showed who it was cuase it was never filmed. so for 9 episodes people watched and was gyped in the end.

it seems lost is heading in that direction if for years they didn't even reveal any major plot

I watched Season 1 of LOST on dvd and was blown away. I thought it was a bunch of overhyped crap, just like Buffy and Angel was when I was in High School. thing is, I watched Buffy and Angel on DVD thanks to my friend who is a huge fan, and they ended up being a great show. So I decided to watch LOST, and when I did, it was great. Thing is, Season 2 came out a week later on TV, and now I was going week by week. While for me, I was into the whole thing that a new season was out, I was glad new eps were there, looking back, Season 2 was mostly miss than hit, but I'm glad I stuck with it. The season finale was shown here on a big screen at an AMC Theaters and was amazing. I had hope for season 3.

That seemed somewhat lost, pun intended, at first, as the first episode off the bat, while good, wasn't full of answers like we were wanting. Instead, it raised too many more questions.

Since the return from the lull/christmas break, the show has gotten amazingly good again. Thing is, the writer's jerked everyone's chains for so long that, everyone is pissed and no one cares. In the past few weeks since it's return, they have answered a few more questions that were asked (even a stupid one like what does Jack's tattoos mean) and the show is up there with Season 1 quality.

Love it or hate it, LOST is a cautionary tale to other writers. A good story, (which they had, and still have, I believe) can start off great, but if you dick the reader/viewer around, they get tired of it. I'm glad YOU know where you're going, but half of us lost interest, again, pun intended, so snap to. It's a shame that Season 3's second half is as good as season 1, but they fucked everyone over.

I don't know. For what it's worth, for all the haters on Lost, I just find it a great show/writing exercise. I watch movies not as a director sometimes, but more of a writer, disagreeing, rating,complaining more about writing, etc.

And I hate to say it, cos of it's lacking in direction for the audience, that makes Heroes # 1 in my book.

How the hell are they going to explain the gigantic polar bears, the computer with the button the needs to be pressed, the crazy french woman, and the random suburban town on the island? Especially the random suburban town.

possible spoiler?… meh.

you can't compare LOST with “reunion” that show was a complete piece of crap, no one should watch fox anymore ‘cause they cancelled the greatest show of all time “arrested development”

and LOST is going to end around the 5th season… so if you’re going to blame someone for the slow pace blame the network because they wanted more episodes ‘cause in the end… it’s still based on the almighty dollar… but the LOST creators said no, that it was their intention (and still is) to end the show around 100 episodes. they even said it themselves that:

season 1 was about the backstories
season 2 was about the hatch
season is about the others
season 4?
season 5?

I had envisioned myself not being able to enjoy LOST beyond three seasons… at least at the rate and fashion it has been going. Don't get me wrong, I'm still enjoying the show right now, even if I'm not happy with a few things. But I say screw the flashbacks, I only care about the island now. Soon we'll be running out of past memories and they'll be showing that one time when Jack was a baby and his pacifier fell out of his mouth.

But the writers told NBC that they're not going to stretch the series out for any reason. I sure hope they hold to that. Some would say they're stretching it already.

fox cancels a lot of good shows…i'm boycotting TV now

Futurama's cancellation is still a sore spot with me.

I know, and that makes me happy, but I still hold a grudge against FOX.

Well I am hearing conflicting stories in the news. I heard Season 7 at the most is how far they wanna run it (while ABC a few years ago was wanting to keep it going non-stop for $$) and then I heard season 5 which is around 100 episodes. Personally, I think 100 episodes are just fine.

I think that Flashbacks, as long as they are actually meaningful, like last night, Locke getting into his wheelchair, to me, is friggin important and needed. Juliet's, is needed. But while I like some of the others, like Jack and Sayid… um, their flashbacks? No one cares anymore.

the only people I'd like to see more flashbacks from the initial cast on are Sun &Jin, Hurley, Desmond, and that's about it. People like Ben, some of the Others like Juliet, Tom(Mr. Friendly) I could do with the flashbacks, but I agree Hawk, they need to scrap them completely or somewhat, and do so with Season 4.

You know, we had a lot of LOST complaining earlier, but I gotta say, these last couple of episodes have been great. Actual things have happened and interesting things have been revealed. Some of this stuff I thought they'd take AGES to tell us!

And how Locke got crippled? FINALLY!

I'm rehooked, especially after this last one.

Same here. :)

Jack's latest episode was the low point of this whole Jack/Kate/Others thing, and after that I think it started to drag itself back on track.

We're getting ANSWERS! Small ones, but still. Plot movement! Those old survivors we'd almost forgotten about. ;)

I really loved this latest episode.

Lost is a story about a writer of an anime, a really stupid anime, even more stupid then the average anime, and it turns real and that is lost and it ends when they get stomped by giant robots.
i will also like to know you the more
