I am not sure about Lost. I liked the first season, but then I started realizing that there is no unified logical plot to it which explains everything. That made it suck. A lot.

There is still, you know, a whole few seasons left to run. Wanting everything to be explained after one or two seasons is a little much There is already plenty of evidence to a unified plot governing the events of the island.

But yes, the best show on television, bar none. LOST > Life.

If I were stuck on an island for 60 days with characters like Charlie, Claire, Jack and (previously) Boone, with no hope of escape, I'd hang myself from the nearest coconut tree. Coincidently enough, that is the same general desire I am filled with when I watch the show.

My problem with the show was not that after two seasons there are unexplained things, my problem with it is that many things will not be explainable

Think for example about the episode that showed it could all be just Hurley dreaming.

i highly doubt it is all jsut a dream. besides why watch a show where everything is cut and dry. why not watch a show and enjoy the mystery of not know. i enjoy that way more then knowing whats gonna happen every week...

That is exactly why I liked it in the first season, and for large parts of the second season. Because it was mysterious etc. Trying to figure stuff out is the fun of it. Now it is largely reduced to random incoherent nonsense.

I've come to the exact same conclusion. I thought the series had great potential, and I liked the way they were taking it for most of the first season. Later, though, it became obvious that they didn't really know where to take it. Just one more unexplained out-of-place weird event after the other. I still watch it though. It's decent enough, and either way I'm too much curious by nature to just stop watching it. I just hope they reach a conclusion.

I agree with the guys saying first season okay but the it went downhill. It was hard to figure stuff out when you miss alot, but from what i gather its just disaster after disaster and the ending will be crappy.

1/5 (the 1 is only for the first 1/2 of teh first season)

Simply the greatest show on television. I've watched both the 1st and 2nd seasons about 5 times now, and I'm not surprised that most people can't see where this is heading. Nothing is unexplainable, at least I can't believe I've missed anything that is. This is a ficticious show after all, and how can there be limits on fiction? Not to mention that Abrams and Lindeloff have *promised* that the series ending and explanation will not be a cop out, such as a dream or anything like that. They've also stated that by the end of season 3, all the questions from 1 and 2 will be answered. So perhaps people should be tuning in come February.

5/5

Yup, it started out promising, but after 1 serie, plots kept being added without anything being solved. Dont get me wrong, i have nothing against mystery. Hell, i love mystery and this is exactly why i liked it in the first place. But you gotta solve SOMETHING! Anything! So i skiped most of the 2nd series and tuned in at the end of em again. It was like tuning into the bold and the beatifull. NOTHING had happened and still nothing was solved. I didnt miss a thing. It's just a very expensive soapserie on an island. there's no storyline.

I agree with alot of the above!

First season AWESOME! But then it just got confused. I think it is mainly because it didn't finish the story lines quick enough, they just let it drag on, over numerous episodes, and then kept extending the ideas to make it too farfetched.

So now, I don't watch it.

Dear god that was an awesome fianle.It had me at the edge of my seat.The sheer amount of killing was amazing.I've watched war movies with less people dying.And it caught off my guard so many times.Really didn't expect Locke to kill Naomi or Hurley's stunt.And Mikhail?That man is like the terminator i wouldn't surprised to see in the next season only missing an arm..And the end.What the hell?The flash back was from the future?The lost writers really outdid themselves.Can't wait for the next season

The flash forward was brilliant. He kept referring to his father, but obviously he's so messed up that he doesn't realize his father is dead.

It's a bit lame that Locke came back and the three hostages weren't really killed, but they're great characters so I'm happy they're not gone. Charlie dying is fine with me. The actor played his role really well, and I have nothing against him. The personality of Charlie is annoying however, and I have something against him.

I wonder where the hell Naomi came from. Since Penelope made it clear that she didn't know a Naomi, it would seem that Ben was right about Naomi being with "the bad guys". That would mean there's yet another group of interest.

No kidding.Did you saw what he takes?Oxycodone thast stuff is supoused to be more powerful then morphine

I liked Lock'e comeback.Altough did he really have to kill Naomi.She was so cute

You know i wouldn't be surprised if Naomi worked for Penelope's father.That might explain a few things

I totally agree with Cloud. I've watched all up to season 4 ep 1 and I just started to dislike it more and more when all logic was removed from it.

Hmm, strange. I really enjoyed the first season, but then I felt it started to get too crazy in the second season. Then the third season was very good I felt; they actually started explaining stuff. Think the fourth has started off well too.
