Lost Finale

I guess I better write about "Lost" while it is still a news story. I have to confess that I have been a faithful viewer.

I am amused at the response to the final episode of "Lost" from other viewers. Many were disappointed that a grand unified meaning of every quirky thing from six seasons wasn't provided. Others were content with the "happily ever after" finale.

Here's my analysis:

The writers had a responsibility to sell each 1 hour show and try to get people to come back for more. Fortunately, the writer's were intelligent and made the story interesting: interesting characters and crazy situations. Some of these situations were resolve in the 1 hour, others took several episodes, and some were never resolved (kind of like real life). I think it is unrealistic to expect anything more.

I appreciate what was created, I enjoyed it, but I'm glad it is over. That's an extra hour I now have every week.

Renting the first season is how I got hooked.
