Not so.
It was a lazy ending..lazy writers.
Any azz can lead you down a garden path. It takes a genuine WRITER to pull it all together in a closer, validating kind of way.

WHO was the smoke monster? WHO was Jacob????

Ancinet Gods..

How about the Australian gilrls..oh so important baby??

So many storylines over years left..dangling

L-A-Z-Y writing.
Color me as dissapointed as I first predicted I would be.
Yet..somehow they kept me watching over the years.

So..there's that.

Yeah, the problem is that the questions that needed to be answered were answered. The baby was important because none had survived on the island since the incident. Jacob and his Brother were not ancient gods, they were a split between the woman who raised them...the brother taking on the smoke monster form, Jacob taking on the protector form.

I don't see how the ending was not validating? It was a perfect representation of the power of our Constant. Each of these people were brought to that place to find their Constant, they were together because the the time they spent on the Island was the most critical parts of their lives, and when they touched their Constants, they remembered their lives, allowing them to "move on." (and no, it's not a Christian theory.)

The series was about the characters, and the plot and the questions that surrounded them were only there to explain the character's journeys. I can see why some were more interested in those questions than the characters, but in a show that spent so much time explaining character back story, how can it be anything other than a character driven show?

I respectfully disagree with the lazy writing argument. It just wasn't what you wanted it to be, which is a story about the island and a tale about what it all really meant. It was about the characters.

Zounds!

I really really liked the ending, Sparty.
Everyone else I know was at least partially disappointed, but not me. I loved it. 😀

Well, that's because unlike the troglodytes here, you have good taste! I know that your taste is good, because it matches mine, and I certainly have good taste. It's true.

troglodytes

hmm...

You must be one of the writers..or a friend of one of them..I'm deducting

It was lazy writing and any 'troglodyte' with half a brain can see that..it was still kind of a neat ending..but all that build up and so many danlging or half danling story lines...it deserved a REALLY COOL ending

People tend to like CLOSURE

But hey..they warned us early on..
Turn that screw

this is me 'respectfully disagreeing' with you :mrgreen: ..troglodyte, that I am

There are about a million pages like that on Lostpedia.
You must REALLY be in love with that one to keep linking to it. 🙄
