    When the first season of Lost aired, it was like magic. I thought it was fabulous. I guess I bought into a version of the show that was going to be more of a mystery, not a supernatural fantasy. I couldn't watch anymore after the beginning of season 3 ... don't know if I can get back into it. People say it's better ... but I would have too much catching up to do.

    I'm ticked.

    I left a spot in my evening to watch the show as it aired... and it was a rerun?
    And with all those crazy "liquid TV" blurbs at the screen bottom? They're so distracting!
    Disappointed.

    I've actually said it in another thread, but Lost was so much better in mystery. Too much is being, or attempted to being, explained. And too much mystery, isn't really mystery anymore, but rather "wtf" indeed. It's not even possible to ponder about explanations anymore. First few seasons, the viewer could still take a guess about what might be going on. It was intruiging. Now it's just a show being thought up by kids trying to think up the weirdest possible things they can think off.

    I agree.

    While closure brings some sort of internal relief to the viewer, I've invariably found that mystery outlasts resolution, and the answers are never as satisfying as the question. While the purpose of the island is becoming clear and is satisfying on some levels, it's also disappointing and limiting... and some of the other minor points (like who the ghosts were) are disappointing as well.

    Although to be fair... people were bitching the whole way through the series run about all the mysteries that were not being resolved. I think a writer is damned either way.

    I don't really know a way past this.
    If the series ended with everything in mystery, people would complain about it.
    We aim our entire lives toward resolutions and revelations that lessen richness in some ways.

    And children the lesson to learn in this story is that if you see a man who could take the shape of someone who has passed away by day and turn in to a smoke monster by night you should never talk to him because he is a Demon who had been trapped on an Island for thousands and thousands of years but has managed to escape.

    I didn't start watching until season 4 started. I refused to watch it before that and only started because I was stuck at home with a broken arm. Season 1 was boring. Subsequent seasons have been more interesting.

    I don't expect the show to be 100% without inconsistencies. It's a television show, not a scientific paper.

As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    My favorite show all time, The Wire, was flawless from start to finish, 5 complete seasons with no plot holes, superb storytelling and characters, so I guess I'm spoiled in that regard.

    Crime dramas don't take many risks in this regard, so it's not hard to accomplish.
