"It's not about the story, it's about how it's told". Yes, because the story is awful.


"If you thought this was interesting watch the show". LOL, gold Jerry, GOLD! If you thought that was interesting, try smashing yourself in the face with a tack hammer.

Weird, I randomly open to this thread to this post and I totally agree. Seeing this thread is the first I've thought about the show since the week the finale aired.

I just rewatched the last 1/2 of the finale. Intellectually it was such a disappointment, but emotionally it was awesome, even the 2nd time around. That last scene switching between everyone hugging in the church and Jack laying on the ground with Vince, watching the plane go by, that's such an awesome and emotional scene. Disappointing when you think back at all of the crazy story lines that they just dropped that can't be explained away nor should they have to be, but if you can somewhat accept that and let the finale appeal to your emotional side, it's an awesome episode.

Same...I think this is in large part due to what the poster above me talks about. They ended it so strongly - emotionally speaking - that you're basically satisfied in that regard and you aren't as attached to it and the characters etc(especially since they are all dead and essentially lived happily ever after).

Your brain may still be thinking about random questions/storylines/could they have done this instead plot wise etc...but character wise you kind of let them go.

In hindsight they didn't handle the last season all that well in terms of keeping the awesomeness of the first 5 seasons going and ending with a bang...story/twist wise. But overall it was still decent.

I do find it funny that TC is still in here whining about how bad the show is/was and how it was such a waste. I'd suggest doing himself a favor and not wasting anymore of his life thinking/posting about such a waste of show...but something tells me he wouldn't listen.

wait like a year...and then just randomly re-watch the pilot, Through the Looking Glass, Do No Harm, The Constant, or any season opener etc and you'll suddenly feel the urge to watch more episodes of it. I'd bet money on it.

It's already been invested. I can't go back in time. What happened, happened. However, I can still get enjoyment out of parodies, mockings, and other nonsense. I don't think about it often. It's amazing how fast it disappeared. I went from checking every website about it, always reading up on Lostpedia, etc... to really not caring one bit. The only real time I think about Lost is when this thread pops to the top. I'm past being angry about it. I accept I was conned.

I was hoping that British guy's video would have been making fun out how dumb the plot was, but the dude actually thought it was awesome. There is still plenty of room for enjoyment from Lost, though.

I'm the same way. I was so pumped for the show to end, then I was going to buy the Series DVD from the store and watch from Episode 1.

I think after the Jacob/Mib/Allison Janney episode, I realized that I was no longer going to do that. I thought season 6 was decent, I thought the finale was good, those aren't my problems.

My problem: From the beginning of season 3 I was lead to believe the writers had a plan, and when I went back and watched the show from the start, there would be tons of, omg moments even though I know what's going to happen. Like watching Memento or the Sixth Sense or Shutter Island. Watching the second time, KNOWING all the answer and being omg'd by how it's all set up.

But yeah, watching entire episodes dealing with subplots that don't mean anything, and just knowing they didn't know means that wont happen. I liked Lost, and I know I would like watching some of these episodes again, but the luster is gone.


Lost could have been in the top 5 shows of all time, but after the MiB/Jacob flashback, I realized it would never be. It's great, just not the GOAT, which still is much better than most shows, ie, FlashForward

I think you can split lost in half for that purpose. You aren't going to get many references to the finale from seasons 1-3 as they were (or appeared to be) on a different track.

This is pretty much exactly how I feel. I am a huge Lost fan, didn't have any hate during the final season. But I was definitely preparing to watch the whole series thinking, like you, that it would be just as good to see all these omg moments knowing how they all fit together. I didn't hate the ending at all, the character moments were moving, but I'm not jumping to re-watch it all anytime soon. Still loved the journey, though.

so the light alters or impacts time and space and essentially allows one's energy or consciousness(not using soul given that is a religious term and this seems to intentionally not be religious hence the constant re-enforcement of energy and use of science) to transfer dimensions or planes of existence. Time on our dimension is a constant so when one travels thru time they simply move through their consciousness both forwards and backwards as Desmond did, though he appears unique in that his current material self is aware of his transcended self though he doesn't know how to interpret it. Once you die your consciousness continues on to another dimension where time doesn't operate how we perceive it to when we are alive. The losties consciousness can't move on to the next dimension? without each other because they became fused/linked together while on the island.

No way LOST could have reached top 5 show of all time in my view no matter what.
What are your top 5...more curious than anything else...I'm gonna assume you join the hive and place The Wire #1.


Tbh I can't really think of any serialized drama that I find inherently re-watchable. It's why TV networks don't like serialized tv shows. They are inherently poor/boring the second, 3rd, 4th time around.
Def. BoB, Def. Firefly, maybe West Wing...that's about it.

my top five fav shows, in no order

Six Feet Under
Sopranos
Wire
The Shield
Frasier


I really thought Lost had a shot at being up there, if they had an epic season 6 that made you go 'omg'

like, if they still had omg moments in the finale, that's what I was looking for.

not "omg they actually are trying to shove shannon as sayid's love of his life on us"


the more time I have to reflect on s6, the more annoyed i am by it. seasons 1-5 were about the time on the island, and their time together.

Season 6 starts out and there is an 'omg they are on the plane' moment. then we try to figure out if it's a flash forward or sideways or whatever. They spend half the season on this other place, and it turns out, they just invented it for season 6. It's not like it was foreshadowed or even remotely possible before season 6 started.

Like, hey, if we just have Jack die on the island, that's only going to be like 10 episodes.

so yeah, the altville is annoying to me because this:

what's the ****ing point?

Agree if they cut out 50% of the time they spent in "altville" and spent that time doing island whatever the season would have been about 3x better at least.

Actually I think it was heavily foreshadowed, with Desmond and Faraday, but the way they ended up explaining it kind of blew that. They made it way more like religious than just about time/space/energy/etc.

But yeah I don't argue with that.
The biggest problem with alt purgatory universe is it was too easy a solution and it was written and laid out poorly. A few touches/edits etc could have made it 10x more effective.

Def. not GOAT TV show imo, though it's probably my favorite to date, but def. on a week to week basis it was GOAT viewing experience.
So I guess you could say GOAT TV ride.

i love that 'Frasier' made an appearance itt. such a great comedy and somehow still underrated even though it won a zillion awards. one of the best ever.

that being said, not sure its fair/possible/practical to compare shows like Frasier with The Wire, The Sopranos, etc.

i'd love to see top 5 lists from a bunch of people to get an idea of good shows that i've never seen. i'd break it into top 5 comedies and top 5 dramas. i would start a new thread but something tells me i don't have the clout in ootv to start that thread?

for me top 5 comedies

1-seinfeld
2-cheers
3-frasier
4-
5-

these are the only 3 that are worthy of my list for now, but sunny in philly is making its way up the ranks.

top 5 dramas:

1- the sopranos
2-
3-
4-
5-

i've never seen The Wire or True Blood but both have been highly recommended. i just started watching Dexter and i LOVE it. i honestly cannot say what #s 2-5 would be.

Dexter is fantastic. Have you not seen Arrested Development or not your type of humor? Should probably be on the top 5 comedies until you fill out your list. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia might be able to crack top 5 for now as well, although I have only seen the first two seasons.

my sister has been urging me for years to watch Arrested Development. i've never seen a single frame.

i forgot that Fringe is sweet and has potential to makes its way up the ranks.

i'm sold on Dexter - absolute genius! i'm pretty much a sociopath (not a murdering one ;-) and i can relate to the show in many ways. only trouble now is finding a good place to watch it online other than iTunes. suggestions always welcome

it's on netflix streaming if you have that. If you don't it's worth the $8 a month or whatever it cost.
