The show's biggest artistic achievement is to make every viewer realize whether they are a man of science or a man of faith.

Men of faith will accept the show on its own terms, are generally uninterested in having an answer for every little thing.

Men of science see the literally like hundreds of dropped plot threads and unresolved issues and hold those against the show (I am one of these people for the most part).

In the vast, vast majority of cases, one's reaction to LOST is a great predictor of their real-life religious/spiritual beliefs.

I've still never seen this show. I mean obviously I've seen little bits and pieces plus promos and commercials from TV, but that's all. How great is this show? I know a lot of people absolutely adore it, and there are some people who loathe it. Just makes me wonder if the people who hate it only hate it because it was popular.

Fair enough. Not every single, little, tiny, thing was answered. But they answered all the important questions. I'm not sure how the questions you're asking here have much barring. Jacob was old. He was there a long time. Since before Egyptians. Why does it matter exactly how old; exactly how long? That has nothing to do with the story being told - the story of the survivors of Flight 815.

If these are the kinds of questions you are angry about being left unanswered, I can see why you hate it so much. And I imagine there is no way to answer any other questions you have in a satisfactory way.

They explained how Widmore traveled back and forth from the island. And Michael died. We saw it happen.

The island wasn't destroyed by a nuclear blast because... well.... probably because that's just suspension of disbelief. It's a TV show. The writers would probably tell you the special properties of the island had an affect.

Not only that but they did answer a shit load of stuff. Things changed along the way that didn't allow them to do what they wanted, and that accounts for some of the things.

Sure they didn't answer everything, but who cares? It was entertaining as all hell, you can't deny that.

I was sucked in like everyone else. I managed to watch every ****ing episode of that show only to miss the very last one. I was pissed off to the point of no return. Then, I realized that they probably didn't answer anything anyway, so I said **** it. Maybe I should go and try to watch the last one just for closure.

You should. The show didn't answer all the questions many of us wanted answered, but at least it was an ending.

On a related note, I watched every episode of the first season of 24 and then had a commitment I couldn't avoid for the final episode. That was a bummer. (I eventually saw it in reruns, but I'd already been exposed to spoilers so it wasn't really the same).

Yea, I've had people tell me what happened, but I don't really remember now. It's amazing how something can piss you off so much time and time again, yet you keep coming back for more.



Kinda like being a Chiefs fan






















or being married.

Entertaining? Sure. A ton of WTF moments.

It would have been SO much more entertaining had they explained everything.

It's like masturbating and getting close then stopping without ejaculating.

What was the point?

What wasn't explained that left you wanting? Just curious.

Here's a pretty extensive synopsis from IMDB. Needless to say, it's full of spoilers.

That show had no payoff at all. I felt like I had just wasted the last 6 years of my life after that finale.
