It was about a fire in another part of the state, relevant to a teeny tiny percent of the local viewing audience who I'm guessing were not going to burn down in their houses while they were glued to Lost - they needed only smell the fire and hear the sirens to know they had to evacuate. There was a split screen during the first 10 minutes or so with half of it being Lost and the other half the fire, and throughout the whole thing a huge ticker ran across the bottom with a giant KOAT-TV logo in the corner. It was so infuriatingly obnoxious and distracting, especially the split screen. And it's not the first time. I actually started writing an angry email but realized I missed the whole first 10 minutes being pissed off.

intersting about all the degrees of agnosticism....

-------------------------------------------------

I can absolutely see whyyou feel cheated for your characters, VP.


And VP, i posit that we of the Western Scientific world, i think, tend to think maybe we are "above" (rationally) caring so much for fictional charcters. It's fiction, after all.

But human beings tend to be storytellers among other things.

Stories are a major way we make sense of the world & ourselves, and here we are with a story dealing with Big age-old Issues: life/death/love/friendahip/seperation/reunion/remdemption (non-religious type)/faith/science, etc.....

.....we are not so stand apartish (unaffected) by these inquires/explorations presented in a good story as our rarional part says we "should" be, perhaps?

I've been entirely unproductive at work today in large part because my brain keeps shifting back to the finale.

I'm sad that we'll never know what happened to all of them, but I'm glad that they finally got together in the end.

Am I the only one whose favorite character was Jack? Almost everything that I've read has complained about all the air time that Jack got.

Jack was always my favorite.

And I am so not ready to even look at those screen shots.

I woke up this morning with my heart still aching a bit.

Dalton, I've always liked Jack. I got a little tired of the love triangle with Kate and Sawyer, as well as his relationship with Juliet....but, Jack in and of himself I've always liked/rooted for.

sure they may have throw in a little of this and that but

Lost was very heavy in the Christian religious themes


and they closed that way.

'Lost' & Religion: Christianity and faith played big role in ABC series

I pretty much liked them all

the casting on this show was excellent, much better than Flash Forward

and the writing, the character development, especially early on was great.

The episodes with their back stories were all generally well done.


I even liked the ones they killed off, Ana Maria, Mr Eko,
It seemed there were a few unsatisfying episodes over the six years, it was not the actors or the characters, I remember many in here saying things like, nothing happened this week, now I wonder if some of those episodes were laying some kind of foundation for future events

Not sure if it's legit or not, but that was very cool.


Dazzled, maybe it's the people I associate with, but I've never really felt that most people are opposed to letting their fan freak flag fly (holy alliteration, batman) proudly.

Dalton, I've always liked Jack. I like Kate, too, and honestly don't understand the hatred of the two of them. They're both deeply flawed, but imo, ultimately good people and likable. I guess I tuned a lot of the love triangle/quadrangle stuff out, I didn't find it that interesting, but I can understand why Kate was attracted to both Sawyer and Jack. They both fulfilled different needs for her at different times.

Heh...thank God it's Victoria Day here in Canada, because I've been the same way.

holly illerteration, indeed!

it seemed to me you felt you were saying about yourself that you were caring too much about fictional these characters

which is why i responded as such.


I don't understand the big hatred either. seeing thier flaws yes.....
