    I only watched it live. I very intentionally stayed away from rewatching it online, and have not seen any alternate endings. I think I watched it on CTV, and it was viewed in a prairie city that I will rep to you.

    (Unless they replayed the ending on the Jimmy Kimmel thing after and I'm thinking of that, because I stayed to watch the first 15-20 minutes before I went to bed.)

    You know what's kind of interesting: people who liked the first season generally didn't like anything after the second; people who liked the middle seasons generally disliked season 1.

    I personally think the images were a bad call, since they were so misleading. If they wanted to help people decompress, they could have put anything in those photos... but since it was executives making the decision, they managed to completely gum up the viewer perceptions by putting something confusing there.

    I was fooled by them and was wondering if it meant it had all been in Jack's head, and him ending in the same place he was starting was a way to "reboot" back to the reality that everyone had orignially died.... despite everything his dad had said. (because it's easy to forget specific bits of dialogue a minute later, but the images linger).

    Season #1 for any series is usually both a testing ground and also has some of the strong original bits imagined by the writers. Later seasons, things change as the writers and actors fall into a groove and the story starts writing itself, but it also means they are probably into material that was never pre-imagined for the series. Which means there's often an evolution and/or discernable difference from Season 1 to the following seasons.

    I wasn't bothered by the plane wreckage images, I got what they were instantly.

    I was sitting about 20 feet from the TV (it's a decent widescreen but too small for the room), and I couldn't see enough details to tell what I was looking at in terms of specifics, and I couldn't remember if the engine and stuff had stayed on the beach all that time or had been swept away during the course of the series, because it wasn't shown for so many episodes in the series.

    And too, the wreckage looked aged and distressed, not fresh. I'm not sure I totally believe the ABC backpedalling, but ah well, as I explained earlier, I'm feeling more peaceful about the show now ...

    Backpedalling from what?

    The plane wreck images ... over the credits at the end of the show. ABC execs have said they added them, not the writers / producers.

    What reason would anyone have to lie... especially if the writers have shamelessly ruined the rest of the series for you? Why should they backpedal now and blame execs?

    it makes more sense to take it at face value.

    ^ I don't know ... maybe just to make it more controversial? Generate more talk and spin? I'm just going from the press statements.

    And LOL, taking LOST at face value? That's almost impossible!

    But as I said earlier, interpreting LOST as a soap makes it all make sense.

    I am at peace.
