I ****ing LOVED this show when it was still on TV. Watching all the mysteries and stories play out as well-written as they were was just amazing. Lost is probably THE best original drama I have seen in recent years (Mad Men coming at a close second). Hell, I'm such a huge Lost fan that I won the complete series boxset on Blu-Ray in a contest last August and later bought the encyclopedia when it came out (I even got the tie-in book "Bad Twin" as a Christmas present)! I even loved the final episode of the series. Yeah, so what if no more mysteries were answered in it, but in the end did it even matter? Either way, the series ended the way it was suppose to end IMO: with a satisfying bang. To those who have yet to see it, all 6 seasons are available for streaming on Netflix, so I'd say you'd better get started. You WON'T be disappointed!

Overal Rating: 10/10

P.S. Screw the Emmys. Lost should've won last year and rightfully so.

I never realized that the season 6 DVD had a 12 minute epilogue to the finale episode. I just watched it and am depressed that that's the last new thing I'll ever see

It was nice seeing Ben, Hurley, and Walt again though

No I have not. There are more comics than animal species on this planet. The plot just sounds stupid for a serial tv show. Movie...maybe. A season ending with someone finding out that they are really Snow White just sounds dumb.

So I just finished S5 in my rewatch and have a couple of questions about the cabin. Did Jacob put that picture of the statue there so Illana knew where he was? Did MIB manipulate someone into disrupting the circle of ash?

At first I thought the MIB had stuck the picture against the wall but after watching The Incident, he seemed to genuinely not know that Jacob was residing in the foot of the statue.

That is one of the questions I have as well. After MIB orchestrated Jacobs death. He cut a piece of one of Jacobs rugs out. When Illiana goes into Jacobs cabin she finds a piece stuck to the wall with a knife. MIB had just done that, so how did that get there?

The only thing I can think is that the entire island flows in time. So one part of the island could be in the past. While another is in the future.

It was probably Jacob because it was a piece of his tapestry and the knife used to pin it to the wall was the same knife he used to filet the fish at the beginning of the episode.

Yeah, but we don't know who. It was probably Claire.

He definitely knew, because he told Richard in "Ab Aeterno" that he could find him in the statue.

The rug MIB cut to ceremoniously wipe Jacob's blood from the knife wasn't the same as the piece of tapestry pinned to the wall. The piece in the cabin was from the tapestry Jacob was making at the beginning of the episode.

Just finished Lighthouse, got a bit teary-eyed during the last scene with Jack and David. Definitely one of my favorites now.

Also, Jacob wanted Hurley to turn the wheel to 108 degrees. Can I safely assume that 108-Widmore? Obviously they couldn't show his name on the wheel because that would spoil the surprise later on.

I need to get the complete series on blu-ray. I've been lazy about that.

Just finished The Candidate. I found it somewhat odd that Claire and Sayid were holding hands as they walked to the Ajira plane.

Also, I went to lostpedia to look at some of their theories and those regarding 'Mother' are some of the worst I've ever read on any topic. Here's an example:

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Taweret - It make sense that the mother is in fact Taweret herself, as many of the mythos related to her can also apply to the events between her, Jacob and the MiB. Also the statue of Taweret was protecting the island just like her. See http://lostpedia.wikia.com/wiki/Stat...eories/Meaning for info about this.

Yes but that statue was built after mother was long gone.

My theory is that the statue was built by Egyptians to try and appease the goddess Taweret, the god of fertility, because women could not have babies after a certain point during their pregnancy on the island. They were all dying off like the Dharma women because of the massive amount of magnetism and energy under the island.

I think Juliet mentioned once that being on the island increases one's sperm count several times over so I figured the Goddess of Fertility statue was built because of that. I also believe that the electromagnetic energy didn't affect the fetus in such a way until after the Incident in 1977.

I thought that at first. But, Jacob and MIB were born on the island but the mother was about to give birth before she washed ashore. Ethan was born on the island but for all we know Amy could have spent much of her pregnancy off the island so as the baby would be not be terminated in the third trimester. We see her in 74 and then again in 77 when she is about to give birth. Claire would have died as she was in her third trimester but she got the injections she needed. If you get pregnant or come pregnant to the island during the early stages of your third trimester, your baby dies and so do you.

It also explains why mother had to bring a pregnant lady to the the island and why she just couldn't get pregnant herself. She could have just ran into the village and raped a guy, had a kid, and made him the leader. Same thing for Jacob. He could have just got a girl pregnant, took the kid, and raised him to become his replacement. It makes being the island's protector a little bit of a more secure/permanent job.

What I want to know is.... was the skeleton in the cave in season 1 really meant to be who it was that was revealed in season 6, or was that something that they made up as the show went along? If it was planned all along, then wow, the writers are crazy to plan something 6 seasons deep

Lindof said that after the Pilot they sat down and wrote most of the series plot points. So I'm presuming that Adam and Eve were planned all along.

Well... it might have been planned for later because they had to speed up their timeline when they made the deal to end the show in Season 6.

Well, the first half of season 3, 4, 5, and 6 felt like nothing was happening... especially 3, where Jack, Sawyer and Kate were stuck in cages for so long. And in season 6, it was the temple thing right...

One thing that still bugs me up till this day is how Danielle Rousseau died so easily...

The first half of season 4 felt like nothing was going on??? Wut? Season 4 was fast and furious the entire 14 or so episodes. It was short due to the writer's strike. I will agree the first half of season 3 sort of lulls. It gets more into the mystery of the others before picking up half way in.

They didn't know they'd have six seasons until about halfway through season 3. But as far as Adam and Eve go, they knew they would be important characters that directly influenced the main cast being on the island. They probably didn't have Jacob and MIB as character pinned at that point, considering the first season they had no idea how long the show would last, if it even would.

Whatever the creators originally intended, it doesn't really matter at the end of the day. All that matters is if the finished product works on its own, and I think it does.
