Another one of those "could have been"s...
24 May 2010 | by killdestroySee all my reviews

As my title states, I think this could have been an incredible show. Every time I try to recommend "Lost" to a friend, I tell them that it's worth watching the first two seasons of it and then stop, because it's all downhill from there. I guess the way they actually maintained the series' downfall in a straight long line all the way to the floor of the bamboo jungle does earn some respect.

I refuse to believe that something made with such delicate and subtle grace could have turned into such a sack of platitude. And the funny thing is, Michael Bay had nothing to do with it! The two first seasons were some of the most precious minutes the world of television has ever seen. And yet the rest of the show was like a four year long textbook on both how to annihilate something wonderful and how to make piles of money off of a faithful fan base. I mean, these people proved to the scientific world that pure gold can be turned into inert organic matter! I also refuse to believe that the original creators of the show were OK with it. I guess this is the perfect example of how wealth destroys everything artistic.

I've read some of the reviews here and what struck me the most is that some people have actually just now discovered that the show was about the characters. I can see how they got confused though, with the last four seasons of the show having absolutely nothing to do with the characters themselves and mostly focusing on the unveiling of the Island's mysteries which had also nothing to do with the story itself, rather than a way for the creators to stall the storyline and make a little bit more money off it.

But I could forgive them all of the time I spent on watching all this(given that I put myself in front of that screen every week) but I can never forgive them for making an ending that doesn't make sense. Even the ending in The Sopranos, where everything just blacks out made more sense than this. Maybe I'm just stupid and I simply don't understand something. So if you have any ideas about what actually happened and what the creators of the show were trying to say with that ending, please tell me.
