Re: Sooo..... (LOST)

I'm watching Jimmy Kimmel right now and it seems they're going to explain a good portion of the show.

Re: Sooo..... (LOST)

As an admitted Lost "geek", I was kinda hoping I would get to geek-out with the significance of the numbers, Dharma initiative...all that stuff.

Don't get me wrong, it was upbeat and had character resolution (I'll admit to tearing up at end), but I feel...cheated.

Me too-so I jumped on a spoiler site and they explained it so now I'm happy I really like how it ended!

me too. I still wanna know what is up with the 4 toed foot statue. dangit.

I felt really cheated last night too (and angered at the Jimmy Kimmel false promises of alternate endings) but then I woke up at like 5:30 this morning and thought it over and I accept the ending. I can't really think of another way they could have ended it by answering the questions and keeping hold of the mysticism.

I am terribly disappointed. I have wasted 121 hours of my life to end in an overhyped clips show. It was an ending that did not do the incredibly complex mythology of Lost any justice. Boo.

Re: Sooo..... (LOST)

Okay, I hadn't had a chance to get back on here till now. I think my problem with it is that they went all superspiritual. It was hyped as something that would keep you thinking and wondering, and a show that answered all the questions. It didn't actually answer anything, and I didn't like the "theology" of it, or the "all roads lead to the same place" implications. I've never been a fan of TV shows taking on the big spiritual questions like that, because you can't answer them without offending someone, and that means you don't actually give any kind of insight.
I think I wanted something a little less... Contrived? It seemed a little too perfect, all wrapped up in a little bow.
Also, it was stated by lots of people that the finale wasn't anything that anyone had guessed. But with the ending they gave, everybody could say, "I was right!" No matter what their theories had been.
For the last half hour or so, I was going, "I bet the coffin is empty," and "Watch, his dad will be right behind him." I don't like it when I can guess what happens next.

I woke up this morning thinking about how pointless that was! I am pretty bummed.

Re: Sooo..... (LOST)

Ok, I have to say I was a little disappointed. Maybe because eventhough it was kind of a happy ending (kind of) it really wasnt. It was not what I was expecting.

I saw got mad at jimmy kimmel false alternate endings. DH and I waited up for it and we literally wanted to throw a shoe at the tv. not very funny at 1 am when I was so unhappy with ending.

I didn't get to see Kimmel because I was taking my friend home. I would have probably thrown a shoe, too.
The four toed statue was a fertility goddess. Egyptian, I think. There's an article on Lostpedia.
