Appareently, ABC (who produced Lost) will be running several "explainer shows" in the next year or so.
As well as a Reality show, based on all the people who just wasted 6 ears and need a game show to explain that fact to the baited breath millions in America!
They were not all dead and in purgatory and was a rip off of Ashes to Ashes, they were alive when they crashed on the island and many died at different times throughout the series, some lived and stayed there and some escaped
It was the sideways story in the last series where they never crashed was a sort of purgatory, whats confused people is that there were people there who didn't die in the show, this is because the sideways world was set way in the future after everyone had died including those who escaped.
The frustrating thing is that many things were left with a "just because" explanation, I enjoyed it, including the finale, but feel the second half of the last series was a bit repetitive and explained very little.
Apparently the complete blue ray box set is to include extra scenes depicted after the plane leaves and Hugo dies, so not much of a marketing gimmick then ?!?!?
My bold.Like lots of other loose ends.
Are the paving the way for "Lost - The Movie"
Where all will be explained in a white knuckle ride of roller coaster excitement that will have you on the edge of your seat?
I was in the whole satisfied with the ending, then again I went into it with lowered expectations--too many finales often disappoint. I appreciated the final scene dove-tailing with the first scene of the first episode.
The part with the real Locke forgiving Ben was poignant though the multi-religious symbolism of the stained glass window w/Jack and his father at the end was a bit over-bearing.
I thought the ending would be Locke/Hurley/Sawyer sitting on the beach having taken over Jacob's job with the evil brother/smoke-monster/Locke sitting down next to him having a chat between antagonists.
It was a damn bit better than the Sopranos finale.
