I'll start. For those watching or caring about LOST, please don't read this post past this point.
I am glad I didn't watch Lost. Well to be honest I watched the first three seasons and some of the fourth. Then I started hating the show. It went from a "Island Survival" to a philosophical freak-out with so many time skips/ flashbacks you had to watch it with somebody otherwise you'd misinterpret things. Not that there aren't things that are so vague that Philosophy classes are actually studying the series.
When I was first watching the series, I was hoping for a "Lord of The Flies" kind of approach and play out. It was actually working that way too. Lots of differences between the people. Jack is a Doc. Kate is a ex-con. John is a cripple. The psychological and physical strains on the people would break into conflict that would shatter the group.
Hell, that episode with the diamonds and the spider was so Stephen King at the end, it was my favourite. They could have done that on an Island Survival.
Oh, and why for the life of me can't Michelle Rodriguez pick a goddamn character in a movie that doesn't die? Lost, Avatar, Resident Evil. C'mon. I see her and I know she is going to die. Except for F&F.
Instead I get Dharma (spl) and some insane theory and completely unbelievable plot. Then Charlie dies. Then crazy guy takes over. Then John gets all spiritual. Then Kate goes all psycho-fuck-over-two-guys. Sawyer goes from a funny Dick to an annoying asshole. Sayid went from cool ex-military to a pussy to something I can't describe (then an assassin). Then all the characters annoyed me.
Then I stopped. Life became better. I stopped looking for more episodes because after all the cliffhangers, I was numbed to them and just ended with "C'mon, just fucking end it" and not in an anticipating way, just an annoyed "whatever" way. Charlie dying was the deal breaker I think.
Anyways, I never really thought about Lost again until I heard about the series finale. As soon as it came out... I still didn't care. It wasn't those "I care but I don't care" either. I didn't care.
So I randomly thought of it tonight. I looked up the ending on Youtube (Bless the Internet) and guess what? I called it. Dead. BAM Dead. Knew he was gonna die.
The satisfaction of yourself knowing that you are right is so awesome I am so happy I didn't loose those hours on Lost and spent them on Dexter, Cowboy Bebop and How I Met Your Mother.
End? Lost sucks, I was right and I am awesome.
Now you rant.
