  • Chris Brannigan

    Making my way through part 3 now, can’t believe the finale was number 17! I’m in the camp of LOST fans who hated the finale and it would have been MUCH lower on my list.

    In my summer rewatch I was coming home and eager to put the next disk in and work my way through…I got about 5 episodes into season 6 and then the rewatch started to feel like work…was getting through seasons in two or three days and it’s been a week since I started season 6 and I just can’t bring myself to push through to the finale.

      Concur. In general, the Lost rewatch series would have been much more enjoyable with some opposing points of view rather than solely finale apologists. You guys were willing to criticize Kate, but not the overall failure of the individual story arcs or lack of payoffs thereto. Personally, I’d love a podcast about Lost’s greatest plot blueballs screwups. The overwhelming optimism is wearying, after a time, and disingenuous to a huge part of the fan base for whom it doesn’t represent.

      The reason we were so rabid for answers is because Damon and Lindelof egged us on, online. To then come out later on with their bs about it being about the characters is insulting, especially to a genre audience. I wish you guys would address this, or at least do one podcast addressing the backlash specifically, or include someone on your panel who feels this way. It was difficult to listen at times because of the fanboying.
