Re: HBO's Boardwalk Empire
I can't speak to how the Lost crowd felt about there ending since I've never seen a minute of it. However as someone who sat there through 5 seasons where the first four were fabulous then suffered through a meh last season. I found the ending of BSG turning out to be a story from the Morman bible as being very meh.
