The Last Word on Lost

“Heaven, Heaven is a place, a place where nothing, nothing ever happens.” – Talking Heads What should be the last word on LOST? Cheesy? Lame? Cliched? Cheap? Vapid? Insulting? All good options, but I think there’s really only one word that ends up describing what LOST became in the end. Stupid. I’m not trying to  … Read more

“The End” thoughts by Gatesy

You can let go now. For years I have imagined LOST’s future and its resolutions. I have greatly anticipated “The End”. Some of my ideas were good, some were not.

It thrilled me. It frustrated me. It thrilled me in frustrating me. I love this show – now as much as ever.

“The Candidate” Recap by Gatesy

None of us thought that all the characters would have happy endings. And we certainly didn’t think that they would all survive. But even with those expectations, watching it hurt nonetheless.

All season there has been a theme of nostalgia as we’ve revisited people, places and scenarios we have seen before; drawing on previous seasons to evoke in us a fondness for the show’s history coupled with a sadness for it’s passing.

“Everybody Loves Hugo” Recap by Gatesy

During the long and tortuous 8 month hiatus I spent many hours envisioning what season 6 episodes may be like. ‘Everybody Loves Hugo’ was exactly what I had imagined. This episode matched the heights of this season’s previous installments in every area; plot development; character growth; mythological answers; emotional satisfaction. It was gripping stuff. And  … Read more

The story of Desmond has its own mythology. There is an order to the HumeVerse. There are things we can predict will happen. Like lights flashing before eyes. Unexpected magnetic side effects.

“You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.” – Einstein I’ve often wondered whether LOST is a game we are playing, or whether it’s a game that’s being played on us.
