Life After LOST

24/05/2010

There has been a lot of chatter over the internet surrounding the finale of LOST last night, I feel partially obligated to inject my feelings on it all as well.

First of all, I watched the show when it started airing in the first season, as it started to move into the science fiction territory, I stopped watching. What I failed to realize is that this entire element is present from the very first episode. Either way, I ended up getting back into the show during the 4th season, and I am glad I did.

After the episode ended, I didn’t know how to feel about the conclusion. It took time to really sink in; in fact, I woke up for about an hour and a half this morning (5:00am) and pondered the events that had happened a few hours before. Now I am sitting here having a coffee and I have to say, it was an extremely fulfilling end to a great 6 years of television. It was both profound and poetic, dancing over many concepts in science and faith. Something they have done steadily over the years (See: Man of Faith/Man of Science).

I don’t want to go into details about anything, because I don’t want to ruin any plot points. It is an ending that really seems dumb on paper, but it was executed so perfectly that you (well, I) can’t help but feel contented with.

I’m going to continue working on the LOST themed portraits I have been doing, whilst trying to figure out how I am going to spend my Tuesday nights now.  I think I need to get my hands on another copy of season 1 (which will be my third copy now) and start the whole series over again. I cant wait to listen to the commentary tracks on the last episodes.

Damon, Carlton, thank you.
