for someone who is as logical and rational as i am, sometimes to a fault, a show like lost can be challenging. however, it can also be rewarding. the final episode reminds you of the mystical and unexplainable in life. jack embodies the hyper-rational more than anyone else in the show and locke is a good foil for him – constantly embracing his destiny and role in the island ecosystem. if nothing else, the show’s finale is a reminder that not everything needs an explanation.
all that said, i can’t say it was an entirely satisfying show or ending to the show. ask me in a month what i thought of the show or why they were on the island or anything else and i probably won’t be able to tell you much. i guess the most interesting long term thing about the show is the characters. their changes throughout, their evolving relationships, their frailties and strengths, etc.
in the final analysis this isn’t a great show for me, but i can see how some would think it is. i just don’t have the stamina to keep interested in the plot twists and cliff hangers.Watched on TV
