Happily Ever After

A perfect end to a beautiful episode. Lost is complete. I’m relatively certain many will not share my sentiments, as that wasn’t a Matrix Revolutions-style Architect explanation of an episode that’s going to answer every little facet of every question we’ve ever had on the show. There are significant questions that were not answered explicitly, […]

The End

I’m planning to finish a draft of my recap sometime this morning but will hold off publishing until I get a chance to polish it a bit. “It only ends once” so I best try and provide you all with something worth reading, yeah? In the meantime, here’s a taste: A perfect end to a […]

Lost Reading

Some of the more worthwhile articles, videos and interviews concerning Lost I’ve read over the past week. This should tide you over ’til tomorrow (literature-wise). Lost-ions – My updated list of the “Answers” we’re all looking for. Locke Around the Clock – Former Newark Star-Ledger columnist Alan Sepinwall recaps “What They Died For.” AICN Interview […]

We know that, perhaps, the single most important theme of the show […]

Meant to Be

Wow, I’m not sure where to start. What began as a “feels-like-filler” episode meant solely to move our players from point A to point B turned into an emotional farewell to two of our candidates, as well as re-emphasizing via inference just what our final endgame may be. It’s rare I can get past all […]

Issues with Reality

With all the show has left to accomplish in its final run of episodes, you probably couldn’t blame Lost’s writers for going heavy on exposition while sacrificing storytelling that has really made the show the success it is. You can have all the smoke monsters, Numbers, whispers, polar bears and Dharma stations you want, it’s […]
