A steady part of my life ended last night in a 4.5 hour TV marathon. I sat in my living room with Mike eating Swordfish, green beans, and fingerling potatoes, with a Wachusett Country Ale and enjoyed my last night of being lost watching LOST. I got hooked on LOST after watching the whole first season on DVD straight through after two of my friends, Nora and Jeff, loaned it to me. The next five years I worshiped the show and looked forward to watching it every week.

There’s articles out there calling the season finale of the show a cop-out. Here’s a quote from the NY Daily news summing up the meaning of lost:

It turns out that the “Lost” alternate-reality world where the plane crash never happened was just a limbo where the gang’s dead souls from the world where it did happen could meet up and travel to the afterlife together.

I also love this final Quote from the NY Daily News:

At least the powers behind “Lost” aspired to be something special: an island of originality in a sea of cookie-cutter reality TV shows represented by yesterday’s other big finale, “Celebrity Apprentice.”
For all its imperfections, it was better to have loved “Lost” than to have never loved at all.

I’m not going to give my opinion about the ending, I’m still as lost as ever. But, today I’m a little sad that there is no hope that my curiosity in seeing what happens next to Hurley, Sayid, Jack, Sawyer, Kate, Claire, Juliet, Jin, Sun, Locke, Ben, and every other character on the show that I’ve grown to love will be answered next week on one of the most creative TV shows I have ever wanted to watch.
