Our Beloved Lost ...

... born September 6, 2005 in the United States, entered into sudden yet planned rest on Sunday, May 23, 2010.  Lost was preceded in death by many greats.  Greats that include: Seinfeld, Arrested Development, Gilligan's Island and Fantasy Island.  Lost is survived by not much.  Perhaps a 30 Rock and sometimes an Office or Modern Family.   Some argue that Lost is survived by a Dancing With The Stars or other silly reality-on-crack extravaganza.  But most of us agree that the television is no longer worth turning on.  At least until the Tour de France starts in July.

Lost, our cherished program of choice, brought us drama, wit and creative story telling.  Clever characterizations and way-out-there science fiction, were among the many traits that produced countless hours of analytical discussions and predictions.

Lost, we will miss you.  We will miss the intrigue, the suspense, and the bounteous blessings of Sawyer's nick names.  We will miss Hurley's Star Wars references, the sarcasm of Miles and everything about Ben Linus -- both when evil and good.  We will miss your Easter-egg book-references, thought provoking scenarios and the hauntingly emotional music of Michael Giacchino.

Lost, we will miss almost everything about you. Except Juliette.  We won't miss Juliette because we cannot stand Juliette and her Dr. Seuss pucker.  We won't miss Anna Lucia either and thank Michael for taking her snarling ass out early.  Oh and Keemie.  Keemie was the baddest dude there is.  Hated Keemie.  And Sayid was turning into MacGyver -- what with the turning a mango into a telecommunications device -- we won't miss that.  But we will miss Sayid...

Last but not least, dear Lost, we will not miss your unanswered questions.


p.s.  That finale of yours was one fine way to go out!  Well done!  Bravo!

What about the 4 toes?

I am still in mourning. I love Jack, and that ending was emotional torture for me. But gosh, it was so, so good.

I am satisfied. That was well written.

I am effected by the finale in the same way I was effected by Star Wars Episode 3. I can't stop thinking about it.

I really liked the way that everyone came back for the finale. I loved Sun and Jin and was glad to see them come back. And happy to see Sayid too. It was perfect for closing the show. And I liked that at the end, everyone was happy and smiling. It was so well done.

When we were an hour into the finale, I looked at the clock and told Ethan that we still had an hour and a half left. And he said, "Oh my hell, I love my life."

I'd take Juliette over Kate any day. Although, they are basically two sides of the same coin.

It was quite the finale. I'm sad to see it go and I'll need to watch it again today to really let it sink in.

OMG- I not as into Lost as you.... but OMG- watched the entire series and LOVED IT. loved the way it ended and loved just the entire series. I am truly going to miss it. I am a Kate fan... and Jack... Oh good lord... yummers.

Ninny! You and your four-toe-upset. There are four toes, not five, because the toes represent something. What, I'm not sure, but they represent something. It's all about the representation.... perhaps, it's the three degrees of glory plus outer darkness? Yeah. That's it.

Rookie - I loved it too. Can't get enough of it. We opted out of the "Lost Party Scene" because, duh, we want to watch it, not socialize. I'm thinking a Lost party is necessary now. Could make it a wake.

Jessica - at least Kate can climb a tree. That's what sets her apart from Juliette.

Janice - if you calling Jack "yummers," I would venture to guess that you are just into lost as I am.
