Readers of this blog will know that I’m a fan of Lost. Or was. Spoiler warning, of course. The ending has bummed me out the more I thought about it. Still, it was 6 years of good television, so much that prior to the ending, I speculated what the end would be, and after the ending I noodled on what the ending was. Now Damon Lindelof, co-writer of Lost, has given a couple of answers in his recent interview on The Verge:
There’s also a very much extended interview with more tidbits.
The ending of Lost was ambiguous and fairly hard to grasp, some would say disappointing. I think I’ve finally gotten it, and I’ve decided whether I liked it or not. Here’s what happened.
Spoilers. Stop reading if you haven’t seen every episode of Lost.
It seems like just a few weeks ago; I watched the season 5 finale of Lost. It was only after the final LOST logo came on to the screen that the reality of a 9 month wait started to sink in. So, impatient as I was, I decided to speculate my way to a series conclusion. Because Lost is the best thing to happen to television since color. Lost is why cave-men painted shows on walls.
Now I’ve had 9 months to speculate on these mysteries, and for the very same reason, this post will be massively spoilerful (unless I’m completely off the mark and even then). Do not read this post unless you have seen every available episode of Lost first. Otherwise, you’ll be ruining a great experience for yourself.
Warning! Don’t ruin this for yourself.
Still here? Okay, I trust you have, in fact, seen Lost. So read on.
In a few days, the remake of the 1983 TV series, V, will air across TV screens in the US. If you’re a US citizen, I urge you to watch it, for two reasons:
It’ll be a tragedy if the show starring Fireflys Morena Baccarin doesn’t even get a chance at a full season. So, come november 3rd, tune in and help give it a chance. Here’s a trailer.
While every government is busy buying up bad dept and obsolete car companies and every company is busy firing people (out of a cannon, into the sun), it may be hard to see what there is to look forward to in 2009. But there is stuff. Good stuff. Here’s my top 7.
What are you looking forward to?
The most recent episode of sci-fi island adventure Lost is, in my opinion, the best episode of a television show, ever. If you haven’t watched it yet (or followed the show), now’s the time to do so. If nothing else then to not be spoiled here. Lost season 4 episode 5 is a re-interpretation of Star Trek’s “All Good Things” episode. That means it’s full of awesome. Chock full of awesome.
