One Last Time

It's over.  Six years and it all ended last night.  I know, I know, not another Lost post...but how could I let it end without saying good-bye?
It didn't go out with the same bang it came in with, but did we really think it could?  
While it still left the door open for questions and interpretations, I completely enjoyed the final installment.  It did leave me with a few musings, but nothing that makes me jump ship and say the last six years have been a waste of my time.  I will still say it is one of my favourite shows...probably my #1 favourite (but maybe it's because we got so much Desmond over the last few episodes!)
My only quip with the finale was the unnecessary making me cry over the dog.  We don't even know for sure what happens to the dog, but let the waterworks flow.  Just typing this makes me want to start crying again.  Death and dogs...combine the two...just give me a thousand boxes of Kleenex already!
Anyway, I won't go on and on about it, but I just had to have one more mention of Lost on here since come January/February 2011 I will go into withdrawal without a new season to get excited about.  Maybe I will have to re-watch every season so I can be in denial that the show is actually over.
Congratulations to Lost.  An excellent ending to a most excellent show.

Agreed Melanie. I thought the finale was a good episode even though the ending was just meh for me. Wish they had left it more scientific-y than religious-y, but that's just me.

So glad you enjoyed the final chapter. We were all tempted to call you over and over again last night just to be the pests that we are. So do you think they will come up with something similar for all of the Lost fans? A guy from Pocatello won the van from the show for guessing the ending. So, when you are in withdrawal you can come to Idaho and see the van.

I just barely watched it and am still wondering- "what the heck just happened?" Parts of it I get, but I guess I was hoping for a little less vague ending, and, like you said, less open to interpretation. I sort of get it but I'm not sure!?! I didn't really get the dog part at the end, only thing I can make of that is, isn't that how the show first began? Jack laying on the sand, then he opened his eyes, was the dog there licking him or something? Yeah, I gotta admit, I still don't really get it. But I personally am glad it is finally over; one less stressor in my life. Glad you enjoyed it!
