i don’t know if it’s possible to ever write an ending that will either satisfy my curiosity or answer all the questions that the show has raised so i’m bracing myself for that already. but this is one more way that the show is like life. my take so far is that they’re all on the island, lost, looking for something that life hasn’t given them or trying to find some meaning or utility in life. when they all solve their life problem they will return back to the real world and be ok. just a thought, there’s a lot more to this rabbit hole left, though, so it could get really far out there before it’s done.
in a way it’s an absurd show and a bit like the proverbial slippery slope. if i’m willing to believe that these people survived that crash then i’m willing to believe that john locke can walk all of a sudden and if i’m willing to believe that then i can believe that a polar bear has found its way to this island (though that gets explained-ish in season 3).
i think the production and acting have gotten better as the series has gone on, though it’s still an obvious tv production at times.Watched on TV
