This is the final season of Lost. 

When JJ Abrams and the other main writers started out the show, they had one vision.... how it would end.  Do you know of any show like that?  Most shows start out with the pilot, then if ratings are good enough, they'll go on for season after season.  Then after ratings die down, they'll finally attempt to conclude the mess of spaghetti they tangled through all the seasons.

But Lost is different.  The writers had one thing in mind--how to end the show.  From there, they worked backwards and started at the beginning--the pilot.

You can read the other reviews on Lost and get a general gist of things--a plane crashes on a mysterious island.  Mysterious people called "The Others", a black pillar of smoke, and a devious scientific company inhabit the island.  Then, six of them get off the island.  Oh, and a rich mogul tries to take control of the island.  There's also time travel and a dude that never ages.

Lost has been a whirlwind of experiences--but most of which has been utterly confusing.  Throughout the seasons, several questions have been answered--Who's Jacob?  Can they get off the island?  Who's the Dharma Initiative?  Why are they on the island?

But this season promises to finally tie in all the loose ends.  No more questions, no more confusion... just exactly what the writers wanted us to know--what exactly is going on.

You NEED to watch this series.  Netflix it.  It's on ABC too.  Heck, torrent it if you have to... but just watch the show!

There are blogs out there that are entirely devoted to the series of Lost. An examination of the characters, the mythology, how the entire world connects. I thought that by doing a post on the series would be a discredit to what others were doing. I was saddened to hear that people didn't like the series finale of Lost. This post will not change the minds of people who did not like it, but rather provide a defense as there was no other way to end the series.    If you plan on …

There will never be a show as good at this, but I can not still to this day get over the ending

Very well done and I loved the episodes with the hidden meanings explained. Sorry to see it end.

Good until I realized they weren't going to tie up any loose ends, but just wave some smoke and mirrors instead. Not thought provoking, not interesting.

I really never followed the show, so I was a bit "lost" jumping in at the end of the series. It looked interesting and hope to catch re-runs

It was a long journey and sometimes frustrating to watch but is one of the best "Sci-Fi" television series ever created.

The series is produced by ABC Studios, Bad Robot Productions and Grass Skirt Productions and airs on the ABC Network in the United States. Its soundtrack is composed by Michael Giacchino. The current executive producers are Abrams, Lindelof, Bryan Burk, Jack Bender and Carlton Cuse. Due to its large ensemble cast and the cost of filming in Hawaii, the series is one of the most expensive on television.

Critically acclaimed and a popular success, Lost garnered an average of 16 million viewers per episode on ABC during its first year. It has won numerous industry awards including the Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series in 2005, Best American Import at the British Academy Television Awards in 2005, the Golden Globe for Best Drama in 2006 and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Ensemble in a Drama Series.
