    What type of ending did you expect?

    Speaking of spoilers.....

    This has nothing to do with Lost, so it is safe to read. I used to always "spoil" movies for my friends by saying "yea it was good until the end when everybody died". Gets some good reactions from people. Of course don't say that if in fact, everybody dies at the end.

    Did I spoil something by saying the ending sucked? I don't see how that's a spoiler. I was just answering the question of whether it's worth watching.

    I think I can talk about what kind of ending I expected without spoiling anything, but people should stop reading now if they don't want anything even close to a spoiler.




    Last warning...




    I expected an ending that fit within the sci-fi tone of the show. I did not expect it to veer so far off into the world of the magical.

    I attempted to watch the first season of Lost twice and I could not get into it.

    Be sure to keep an eye out for season 4 to be released very soon. You should watch it and then be prepared for season 5 to start in July.

    We'll certainly disagree, but I loved the last season, the final episode especially. If you focus on the sci-fi element, yea, you'll probably be disappointed. But in my opinion, the show was always more about the character relationships and parallels more than it was about the mysteries.

    The show was character driven IMO and it ended very character driven. I've never seen a show do such a good job with character development, the bonds and overall meaning of people relationship on a show.

    Just my opinion.

    I've seen a couple of episodes of lost here and there never really got into it. Probably because I didn't understand what was going on.

    The show I love right now is Breakout Kings. I saw the first episode of season 2 and got hooked. Just watched the season 2 finale last night. The whole season was great. The first season is on Netflix so I plan on watching it tomorrow on the ride down to florida

    It's good at first but after a while get's over convoluted and in the end of the series left too many plot holes open and was very lacking.
    The further you go into the series the harder it is to follow and the more it loses it's narrative.
