Mine too, though it's been displaced from my top 3 recently. Still think from the last few episodes of S3 through S4 was some of the best TV ever.

There are people who defended it even after the finale. "oh, it's not about the mysteries, it's about the characters". When the characters were completely boring and static, beyond like Locke and Ben, and terrible acting. King of the Hill has better character development than this turd. The only reason to get hooked on this show was the mystery aspect, and thinking there was something that was going to tie together. But instead, it was obvious there was absolutely no plan and everything was just thrown together, and you just have constantly having weird stuff happen with any explanation being more weird stuff without any answer. Then they try to do the epilogue on the box set as a way to try to appease fans saying "oh look, we gave you some more answers", when it all was pretty awful.

Basically is one terribly acted soap opera with some mystery elements in it. "Oh, it's about the ride". That's like saying going on a roller coaster is about waiting in the line.

The acting is fine. I agree with the other points.

I mean there were some legit good actors in there, Sawyer, Ben, Locke were pretty elite. But, omg Kate, the worst. Trying to remember some of the other awful ones, but I've blocked it out. Jack pretty terrible as well.

For me, this show is the perfect example of "the journey is important, not the destination"

I loved watching this show week to week, from the pilot to the end. For me, each show was like a 5 hours experience, watching it, reading about it here and on other forums too, listening to the Jay and Jack podcast and the official podcast. Talking about it with friends.

But it's bittersweet to think about it now, because all this time I was watching it, I kept looking forward to the end, having all the mysteries explained, all the easter egg make sense, all the thread connected and then having a glorious complete rewatch where it would all make sense.

The ending robbed that away from me. But it did not erase the experience I had during 6 years watching and really enjoying this show. It still ranks as my favorite show ever. And one day I will rewatch it completely, but not yet...

I couldn't imagine ever rewatching. I loved the show up until the last season, but a large reason for that was trying to figure out what was going on. When so many "answers" are then so unsatisfactory or missing, you've realized a sort of false enjoyment and there would be no point watching a 2nd time as "enjoying the journey" was in large part the mystery of it all. when the resolutions are so bad, the clues becomes meaningless

I thought the ending stood up better upon rematch tbh. I'd guess that people who still think that purgatory has anything to do with anything would disagree

Totally agree. I think that many people still don't even understand the ending. The final season was 1/2 wrapping up the island story and 1/2 epilogue that was interwoven throughout the final season and nothing had anything to do with purgatory.

There was a blend of sci-fi and faith, and I think the faith part is what rubs many the wrong way.

Marc Desjardins,

Couldn't agree more.

I agree with the ending being better on a rewatch. I love how the show ended now. Once you let go the expectations of discovering secrets then you can appreciate the incredible journey it allowed you to be a apart of.

There's a website some guy made that basically answered 100 or so questions that were asked by a video made by college humor that Lindelof ended up linking to on his Twitter saying something like "I don't answer stuff anymore, but this is pretty accurate for the most part". It's like lostanswers.com or something. He goes in to great detail on the final season and cuse/Lindelof more or less sign off on it.

Many do. Not the GOAT show in terms of quality, but somehow probably the show that left the biggest mark in the last 10 years. More than Breaking Bad and half a dozen clearly superior shows. A decent show we loved like a potential GOAT show, that's an interesting thing when you think about it.

We all loved the journey, even those that have been saying otherwise !

This show is the GOAT example of a tvshow you should be "there" with, not marathon watch it but wait for eps week after week, because the show was 75% discussion with friends, even arguing with friends re: Island theory etc.

Without this and the hype wanting the next season and so on id go and say it would be pretty terrible.

If i were to marathon this id probably quit it, and very likely call it WOAT / days of our lives quality if i managed to the end marathoned it(having every mystery fresh etc) and realize so much were just made up as they went on and eventually decided to ignore most of it because they cant come up with a answer.

An absolute writing disaster after S2(?). Prior to that best idea/show ever but they didnt exactly wrap it up Nolan-style, satisfactiory but enough to make ppl have to discuss it/go to internet to be perfectly clear with it all.

I find serials and soap operas [what will happen to him next?] are not as much fun to rewatch as you know who's behind the curtain.

I'm feeling the same thing with TWD. The early ones where they are introducing the characters are rewatchable. But lately the island hopping squad of elite survivors is only good for seeing what kind of wierdos they meet next.

I've rewatched the Constant a couple times for sentimental reasons, otherwise I will never go back. I still feel the pain of utter disappointment from S6 rambling around going nowhere leading to a bitterly disappointing contrived finale with only nonsensical resolutions.

+1 to season 5 being underrated. When the outro screen went to white instead of black in the last ep. I thought this really does have a chance to be GOAT series.

But no.
