LOST and found... It's all over

So lost comes to an end, I must admit - I was saddened at the prospect of no more LOST but I'm glad I stuck by it for six years. Heck, I don't think I've stuck with anything so consistently for so long! lol.

So the finale, was it worth it? Trauling the internet, it seems like a fairly even split between those who hated it, those who loved it and those who's brains were fried and will take a few more viewings to make up their mind's. As for me; I loved it. It was moving and resolved the most important issue for me - Will there be a happy ending or doom?

I've stopped myself from dissecting every scene or analysing every plot-hole or dead end as I'm not trying to find answers that the show did not provide.

What I took from the last six years is that many of us hope to one day be in a place where we can be with the people who we care deepest for and resolve the hurt of being departed from them.

That is exactly what LOST depicted. We all get lost at various points in our lives doing things we believe we are "supposed" to do, solving mysteries, seeking answers - all in the hope that one day we will be at peace - what ever happens. How anyone can have a complaint about a show that has taken us on such an emotional and intellectual roller coaster is beyond me. There are mythologies and concepts I may have never read into and discussed had it not been for this show. For the entertainment, for the knowledge, for the one-liners, #jackfaces, fist pumps and tears; I am thankful.

LOST >>>> Any other TV series made yet (in this timeline) ;)

If you've never watched it or if you started and got lost somewhere between Season 2-3 - I encourage you to give it a go.

Thank you Janelle,

Michael's "trapped" on the Island (Remember the conversation between him and Hurley in the Bushes?)

and Walt didn't have a significant enough role in Jack's life to be a part of his send off.
