I can’t believe its over :( Im not going to go into specifics of my interpretation of the show or why I liked or disliked the ending..I could ramble on all day about that, but for those who complain about all the answers not being revealed, I think we forget why we loved this show in the first place. So many of us stuck with this show for 6 years from day one, and will always hold a special place in our hearts … It would have been impossible to end something like that with everyone satisfied. It may be “over” but I know at least for me, I’ll be thinking about this show for a lifetime.

When we last saw the “Lost” gang, they had set off a nuclear bomb so the timeline would be reset. Well, obviously things don’t go so smoothly, or the series would have ended LAST season.

And it serves as the springboard for “Lost: The Complete Sixth And Final Season,” which serves as a brilliantly brain-twisting finale for this unspeakably weird series. JJ Abrams doesn’t quite manage to wrap up all the countless plot threads he’s introduced, but he does manage to provide a semi-satisfying finale for the vast “Lost” saga and its many characters.

In the aftermath of the nuclear bomb, the survivors find themselves being taken captive by a mysterious man (Hiroyuki Sanada) at an ancient temple. At the same time, the Man in Black begins seducing people over to his side, while Jacob’s ghost works to get a replacement for his position on the island. And Charles Widmore has finally arrived on the island for reasons of his own, dragging a reluctant Desmond with him.

In another timeline (one where the island is underwater and nobody ever went there), the plane lands safely in L.A. But the fates of the people who were on that flight are still drawn together inexorably — even though their pasts have been radically different. The history and secrets of the island are revealed, as well as why the people aboard Flight 815 were drawn into the island. And for the evil Man in Black to be stopped, one of the survivors will have to do something unbelievable.

“Lost” has never been like other network TV shows, but the final season goes all out on the strange stuff — we’ve got flashbacks to centuries (even millennia!) ago, two separate timelines, a large number of deaths, and the revelation that basically the entire series has been a yin-yang battle between light and darkness. The biggest problem: Not all the plot threads are neatly tied off, and not all questions are answered (why are the numbers BAD?).

And the finale is a rather mixed bag — it’s not entirely satisfying, but things end on a haunting, philosophical note. Disappointing as a sci-fi story, but very powerful as a personal story.

And the writers spare no emotion, wrenching out some truly powerful moments that mingle tragedy and pure beauty, such as the heartwrenching “Ab Aeterno” (in which we find out about Richard’s past) or the painfully sad finale of “The Candidate.” And hanging over every episode is the haunted feeling that something terrible is about to happen (“‘Cause if you don’t… todos nos vamos al infierno”) and that it will be epic.

I still find Matthew Fox’s Jack annoying (I laughed out loud when Dogen started pummeling him) but Terry Quinn is brilliant as the “evil Locke/Man in Black,” a genial villain with icy eyes; Michael Emerson’s creepy Ben is fleshed out to perfection; Josh Holloway’s hatred, sorrow and pain are explored; and Yunjin Kim and Daniel Dae Kim are ideal when their characters finally reunite. And Jorge Garcia is, as always, the show’s heart.

There’s also some brilliant performances from the supporting cast — Nestor Carbonell will break your HEART, Hiroyuki Sanada has a brief but excellent role, and Mark Pellegrino is eerie and a little sad.

“Lost: The Complete Final Season” does not answer all the questions raised, and the finale is too oblique, but it does conjure up a brilliantly complex, powerful final arc for this unique TV show.

The last season, as well as the ending itself, resonated not only with other themes, symbols, and motifs within the show itself, but with major literary and religious works. The show was, from the beginning, made to entertain and instruct people with a little bit of education about the serious struggles of life itself. If you don’t have that education, or at least some experience reading canonical books with depth (literary, scientific, philosophical, religious), you will only see the show as a mish-mash and think there was nothing there to see simply because you have no eyes to see them. You may even think that those who defend the show don’t see anything either, and only defend it out of some fan-boyish tendency the way other lesser shows are defended.

This is just not the case. The quality of “Lost” overall, as well as the last season, can be easily defended on literary grounds, most heavily relying on a mythological context. Some large portion of today’s audience, however, needs “answers” distilled down to some catchphrase, or something so simple that it makes the journey of the story pointless–and the journey cannot be pointless (“meaningless” in the Adversary’s final words; the journey is not only theirs in the story, but our wider journey as humans in life). Clearly some think the answers given made the story pointless, but those were the only kind of answers we could have gotten given the scope of the questions. What are the numbers? The Valenzetti equation. But what are the numbers? Uh, they correspond to our losties who are candidates. But WHAT are the numbers? A sign of Jacob’s influence on the world akin to the way other constants, such as pi, are found throughout nature in many different contexts. But WHAT are the numbers? A symbol of our interconnectedness as human beings, how our experiences overlap and are often very similar thematically and emotionally which tells us “we’re in this together”. But WHAT are the numbers? Then they say, “See? You didn’t answer the question.” They want an answer that isn’t possible for the writers to write, an answer that literally cannot exist hypothetically (in an imaginary world) or in reality, an answer that is so simple a child would say “ah-ha” and wander away to play outside. There literally could be no bottom line, drop-dead answer (imaginary or real) to “what are the numbers” that would make the story better. It simply would have turned the entire show into a math problem, the point of which was to solve for X, and once you do that you can move on and never think of the show again. The show was better than that. The show was about life, and life isn’t a math problem to solve for X, although it is often a mystery in a variety of ways. The story was a story the way a great book is a story, the way the great myths of the world are stories, NOT the way a television show is a “story” (if we can call something like CSI a story). But as such, many people watching television would have never opened the “book of Lost”, had it been a book, not just for the reasons they complain about the series. They never would have gotten past the first few pages before becoming bored and wandering away. But at least they were exposed to something greater, something better, than everything else on television.

If you didn’t like “Lost” or its final season, fine. But at least turn off the tv and take a hike to the local library and read some of the books referenced in the show, books that contain ideas that influence every aspect of your life even as you are unaware of it. Since “Lost” is over, there is nothing else worth watching on television, and the history of human thought awaits your discovery. Perhaps start with some of the island books just to get your feet wet: Lord of the Flies, Mysterious Island, The Island of Dr. Moreau, Swiss Family Robinson, Robinson Crusoe, even Shakespeare’s The Tempest, among dozens and dozens of others.

If you’ve never seen Lost, and you are moderately educated, and you don’t often watch television…give disc one of season one a spin. All you need to know about what the show is and isn’t, is on that disc. Namaste. And good luck.

My review won’t break down the story bit by bit because if you made it this far and don’t watch season 6, then I don’t think I can help.

The reviews here are all over the place and people love it or hate it. Why?

Because we, as a species, are lost. The entire show is a metaphor for life itself. It’s not going to answer questions about life and death, good and evil, love and hate because as in life, so is it in the imagination and the show.

I’m going to buy this when it arrives and watch all of them back to back over the shortest possible period that I can. I’m sure to wonder why this or that happened the way it did, or wonder why this person was left out of the ending; however, it’s fine by me. EDIT: Mostly fine. I took away a star from my review after some discussion within. While I’ll still certainly buy the season and watch it again, I’m still open to removing more stars.

If you are willing to sit back and enjoy a thought provoking series and happen to be here reading this review after dropping the series for some reason, I offer this: Buy the rest and invest the time with an open mind. Let it spur your own thoughts about life and what it has to offer before and after it ends.

*Minor spoilers*

Storytelling-wise, this was the weakest season of all. Some of the previous seasons may have started slow (like Season 3) but the story always picks up toward the end. What we have for season 6 is a choppy, uneven narrative with too many characters, major and minor, fighting for screen time. At times, the pace is too chaotic; key events feel rushed and certain subplots are hastily concluded. Other times, the action stalls; all we see is one group of people going from point A to point B while another group is going from point C to point D. The problem of the pacing can be attributed to the fact that too much time was spent on two plot elements: (1) The Sideways Universe (2)Explaining the Jacob v MIB conflict.

I admit some stories in the sideways universe were interesting. And the sideways universe was necessary for the setup of the happy reunion scene in the finale. However, a substantial amount of time had to be devoted to a universe that essentially was not real. The inclusion of the sideways/afterlife universe disrupted the pacing of the story in the real timeline. This was not a problem with the flashbacks and flashforwards in previous seasons since the viewers could see the connection between the flashes and the present timeline. But we were not aware of the the connection between the two timelines for season 6 until the very end, so for most of the season, it felt like two separate stories were being told in every episode. Sure the reunion scene in the finale was very moving, but does the payoff at the end justify the disruption of the flow of the overall narrative?

Another problem was that the writers waited until the very end of season 5 to reveal the whole Jacob v MIB conflict. So they needed a lot of time this season to set up the story and explain the origins of the two beings and the nature of the conflict and the “rules” of the game and the candidates and how this relates to the island, etc. They even used one whole episode (“Across the Sea”) to try to explain the mythology, which ended up not being too informative at all. I felt too much information was being crammed, and like the sideways universe, it had a detrimental effect on the flow of the narrative. At the very least they could have revealed parts of the Jacob/MIB story in season 5 to avoid this problem.

My other complaint was how the story arcs of certain characters were concluded in a very unsatisfactory manner. My two biggest disappointments: Claire and Richard Alpert. If we exclude Claire’s appearances in the sideways universe (which essentially is just a “flashback” to the old Claire we’ve seen in season 1), then the only thing memorable about her character for this season is her crazy hairdo. The whole “insane Claire” seemed promising at the beginning but failed to deliver. By the end she was simply reduced to a bystander in a lot of scenes. Why did the MIB want to recruit her anyway?

And then we have Richard Alpert. A mysterious character we’ve seen in previous seasons that seemed to know a lot of secrets of the island. Well, it turns out that he does not really know anything. He spent the first half of the season running around in panic after learning that Jacob was dead; at one point he even tried to commit suicide. Then after calming down a bit, his objective for the rest of the season was to “destroy the Ajira plane.” And he did not even accomplish that. So what was the purpose of his character for this season? Or the entire series? I admit the Richard-centric episode was well done, but if that’s all Richard has to contribute to this series, then why create his character in the first place?
