It's a shame that that's the lesson from Lost. A better lesson would be that you can drag out mysteries as long as you tie them up in satisfying ways in the end. Of course, Lost may have damaged the ability of future shows to do that by failing to deliver and making it less likely that viewers will trust shows with complex, ongoing mysteries.
