May 24, 2010 03:47 AM EDT views: 1456 4 Talk about a bait and switch scheme! The series finale of ABC's hit series 'Lost' tonight didn't even attempt to answer any of the lingering questions that have kept fans tuned in for the past six seasons, instead opting for a cheesy reunion of the cast in a church, dead or alive - your call.

Don't want to rewatch the series after the finale. Heck, I'll watch BSG, even though I was luke warm on its ending. It kinda stayed tried and true, Lost just played me for the long con, and I don't have to and didn't care for it, my person opinion. I understand the ending, like some of the awakenings, but it seems such a waste of time with it running parallel as a story telling device to bait and switch on split time line. It's brillant and infuriating, so no harm no foul, it's the writer's show but my dime, and none of it will be worth or spent on the DVDs. For those who enjoyed it, fine, I am happy for you. I fall in the meh category, meh like the epic battle between depowered smokey and ?ever empowered Jack.

They promised 2 things that I can recall.
#1 They would tie up all loose ends and answer all questions. They lied.
#2 They said NO ONE would be happy with the end. Yeah...I can see that.
So in the end..50% isn't too bad. I was prepped to be pi**ed. Just pleased they didn't "kill" Desmond before everyone else! What a sight!

Yea, somewhat disappointing finale. But the series is sorely missed.

Lost was the greatest TV show of all time, except for the ending, which was very disappointing. However, it was still six years of great TV! I have the entire series on DVD, and look forward to watching it again in a few years, just not the finale.

"Lost" ?

That show sucked before they ever aired the first show. Reality shows are for gaybies.

Your wife seemed to like LOST, although she didn't see much of it. Her head was usually buried in my lap during the show.

The ending was very bad, agreed. I would like it if they had not had the "sideways flashes" and utilized that half of the final season for more fruitful ventures related to the island. We could have seen episodes teasing Richard's origin to the plot before his backstory episode that included even more info along with context for: insert random plot device or ambiguous concept here.

The same could be said for Jacob and the man in black and (possibly an actual name for him), more details on the golden light that needs to be protected and why (without spelling it out entirely of course). Charles and Eloise's characters could be explained more, as well as more about the black smoke without ruining the mystery. The actual ending could go many ways with these changes and I am not sure what exactly I would do instead of the actual ending because it is a huge story. It is not my story and I do not want everything I enjoy to always fit perfectly with what I want, I am being entertained by someone else's story and I realize that.

The ending is bad enough in my subjective opinion though that I would like to at least suggest alternatives. I think the show would have been much better off without any of the portions not related to the actions occurring on the island in the final season, so it is wide open from there. Some kind of ambiguous ending involving how Hurley and Ben protecting the island will work out, Desmond and Penny's story from there, the fate of "the others" and whether or not the people on the plane will ever return to the island could be a possibility. This sets up a potential spin-off or continuation of the series in some form at a later date if desired.

One thing I have noticed in a lot of complaints about the final episode and the show in general is a supposed lack of explanation about the presence of polar bears on the island. While not explained in great detail, the polar bears are addressed when Dr. Chang threatens Hurley with having to dispose of polar bear feces after the Dharma Initiative scientists have concluded experimental testing and weighing of specimens. That is the answer, the polar bears are there because the DI brought them to the island. How some of them survived for decades in the wild before their appearance in the first season without housing conditions similar to those of zoological parks the DI must have had is another question.
