    A good season of intertwining plots and moments that paralleled our first meetings with this group of characters we grew to love for years.A good season of intertwining plots and moments that paralleled our first meetings with this group of characters we grew to love for years. That is what I enjoyed the most about it, that it was a homage to all things that started this crazy, confusing ride. It is one of the best shows to have ever been made, and yes, it had such a polarized ending but I enjoyed it, it was great. My love for the show triumphed my opinions on its ending. There were some loose ends that I would have liked to have seen wrapped up but I suppose what made Lost work so well was that it was all about questions and curiosity and fate. Fascinating. I'm still fascinated now. Expand

    I'm a big fan of series, i saw dexter, prison break, breaking bad and many series of this decade, but Lost are a serie at a was a greatI'm a big fan of series, i saw dexter, prison break, breaking bad and many series of this decade, but Lost are a serie at a was a great expectation to see.
    i love all the seasons and the episodes of the serie, it i all expected, have action, fights, desperate peoples, bad peoples, black smokes, pollar bears, crazy scientists, pretty womans, good actors, photography, geniality, ...
    But was much have fixed me, has the love, friendship, human capacity in take care of another peoples don't matter if you never seen there before and the highest value of all, the faith, despite everything, everything will end ok, those things are really bad, but you have try to fixed that.
    You never will die alone, and that people you love, the people that you live together, will always be your biggest fuel is that you will have up after when it's over, so even if I never see you again there is still the possibility to see you in another life brother!

    it's my frank conclusions of the serie LOST

While it wasnt the ending i had envisioned, it was still satisfying, very much so. Jack Shephard became the hero he was always meant to be. The bitter-sweet ending made me cry. The story telling is so nuanced that you can interpret it how you would and no one could tell you that you were wrong. Expand

    One of the most iconic, mystical and debatable tv-shows ends in a perhaps too rushed way, but that still manage to grip some of the magicalOne of the most iconic, mystical and debatable tv-shows ends in a perhaps too rushed way, but that still manage to grip some of the magical aspects that made ‘Lost’ so great.

    ‘Lost’ have always been about the strong characters. They are often described in a very nuanced, relatable and mystical way but also deep that brings emotion and feel to all of them. The continuous fight between destiny and the already set future is always present and we still get more questions than answers. Lost is a genius example of the human curiosity. We want to know more, and here we are in the sixth season and it still manages to bring such love to both the plot and the beloved characters. It’s always fun to see our main characters in brand new situations and places that we never have visited before. We also get to see new and uncharted territory of some of the characters, and to make one of them a brand new villain is a bold but clever and well welcomed move by the writers. The show might have lost some of the deep characteristic moments that truly defined the show. We don’t see that much depth nor power to the characters anymore, but it’s still there, but not as suspenseful as what it once was.

    Full of twist and turns, and packed with teases and hints on what really is going on; that’s ´Lost´. This last installment got of course tone of that, but perhaps a bit less than the previous seasons. But one aspect it got more of, is answers. We see events that transpired seasons ago, get a somewhat explanation to them. We see connections to past events and characters, and it gave the show a sympathetic feel because we really want to get some of them answered. But then again, it might be one of the most debatable shows in the world, so don’t just assume anything. One aspect on the other hand is that it’s definitely not as flawless nor creative than season three to five. The dialogs are one part, and they’re much more “dry” if you can call them that. They try very hard to explain things, and they even feel forced from time to time. The whole ending is actually a bit forced too. The entire ending is just introduced in the last (2-4 ep), and it really is rushed due to non-perfect writing which really is noticeable in the plot and the lack of the ‘Lost-magic’ we have learned to love. The story also lacks that complex and high paced tempo we embraced in the fourth and fifth season. But there are still some strong moments that really defined this last installment; two are definitely the meta-references, and the inside-jokes, they totally made me love this season. Surely, the creativity-department isn’t as great as what is once was, especially with this rushed ending, but it also got a slower tempo and a somewhat less entertaining plot than what season four or five had. But it’s still one of the best in my opinion.

    Season six might be a non-perfectional version of four and five. Forced dialogs, lower tempo, lack of creativity, less complex and of course a rushed ending. But I still really enjoyed this last installment, and most surprisingly; the ending! Indeed, it might not have been the ending I was hoping for, but it certainly is a beautiful one! It could have been even better yes, but I loved it! A wonderful, plot-twisty, mystical and fateful ending is exactly what this show really deserves, and what it just got. This is one of the rare tv-shows that I hope everyone will keep close to their hearts. It’s just wonderful.

    Overall personal rating for each episode: 8.52/10.
    (-0.20 since S05).

That being said, it's still mostly fun and worth your time. The series finale is very good, but beware: it won't answer every single question (mostly just the major ones). Every good story needs an ending, and Lost gets a good one that will probably leave fans wanting a little more. Alas, we finally can break away and move on to other great shows. But Lost will be remembered as one of the greats, and deservedly so. Props to J.J. Abrams and the writers for keeping it interesting even while giving you a hundred questions and rarely offering even one straight answer. Expand

    No matter what is said about Lost it will go down in history as one of the greatest shows of all time. There's no doubt about that whatsoever.No matter what is said about Lost it will go down in history as one of the greatest shows of all time. There's no doubt about that whatsoever. For six years the Island has dominated millions of people's lives with the endless mysteries and myths, and had us breathe every breath with each one of the members Oceanic 815. The big question was how would it all end? Sadly, not the way a show of this magnitude deserves. Whilst I can only speak for myself, i'm sure im not alone in feeling hugely let-down and disappointed in what was an average ending for an exceptional show. Rather than answer any questions, they created more! But I suppose in away that's what made Lost what it is, and the one thing that cannot be faulted regarding the ending is the emotional aspect in bringing closure to the protagonists stories which is carried out superbly in some deeply moving and poignant scenes to bring each characters story to a close, also they have thought carefully about how each person will interpret it as you can interpret whatever way you wish, which in a way is very clever but in a way is a cop out as surely its the writers responsibility to bring a definitive ending? Season 6 itself picks up straight where season 5 left off and returns to the present where Jacob has been murdered at the hands of The Man In Black, who is soon revealed as the Smoke Monster in the human form of John Locke (keeping up?) who reveals that he is going to leave the Island and intends on destroying it in the process. The alternate timeline in the final season seemingly indicates that the bomb in season 5 worked and all of the members of Oceanic 815 land safely back in LAX, and this is ultimately the key part of the final season. Thus setting up the main story for season 6 both on and off the Island. Whilst they (being the writers) do provide some answers regarding the numbers but their no hugely significant their merely each Candidate's number, as it turns out Oceanic 815 were crashed with a view to replacing Jacob as the guardian of the Island. There are some amazing episodes amongst the 18, and some not so. Ab Aeterno is a phenominal episode, where as Across The Sea is a disappointment. There are deaths along the way but thats to be expected and the deaths bring around some of the most heartbreaking and touching moments Lost has produced. Ultimately it all leads to The End, the inevitable showdown between Jack and Locke isn't quite what it should have been, destinies are fulfilled, heart-rending and tender goodbyes shared, the fate of the Island is solved and the shock truth about the flash-sideways (alternate storyline) is revealed, concluding with Lost's unforgettable and genius final scene. All in all an epic tv series which delivered some of the best TV ever scene as when it was good it was at times unbeatable but in the end had the impossible task of bringing it to an end. Either way, you can be sure that Lost will continue to be the centre of heated debate for years to come!! Expand

    Absolutely fantastic first season. The premise was unique and fascinating, and the ensemble cast was wonderful. I honestly couldn't believeAbsolutely fantastic first season. The premise was unique and fascinating, and the ensemble cast was wonderful. I honestly couldn't believe how good this show was. I was hooked, but then their best writer left after season 1, and they proceeded to make those OTHER seasons. The fact is that the remaining writers never even came close to recapturing the clever storytelling of season 1. The additions to the cast starting in season 2 were all disasters, and from that season onward the writers just seemed to have no solid direction whatsoever for the story. By the end of the series, it established itself as one of the greatest disappointments in television history. Expand
