More Lost - and Loving It

Forget all this talk about The Sopranos. So Tony keeps beating people up, having sex with women way too hot for him, killing his relatives blah, blah, blah...

Let's talk about the best, most creative show on TV... Lost. What a frikin' finale last night.

SPOILER ALERT: If you haven't seen the episode yet do not scroll down!

Last night's episode was borderline ingenious... setting us up for the past three years by structuring the show around flashbacks and current events on the island and then last night pulling the rug out from under us with a flashFORWARD... but doing so in a way that we all thought it was just another flashback...UNBELIEVABLE!

What balls to show us, basically, the outcome of the show three years before it ends. Now it's no longer IF they get off the island, but how. And like a moth to a flame, George The Animal Steele to a turnbuckle, I've been reeled even even more than before... hook, line, sinker.

I mean just imagine it... it's like watching Wrestlemania after not seeing RAW for a whole year, and then going back through the DVR to see how all the angles led up to this great culmination... the swerves, the schmozes, the double-switches, the bad ass faces... just kidding.

Seriously though... that show is incredible. Even seemingly insignificant things turn out to be important in the overall scheme of things.

The show doesn't come back until after Jan. 1 next year I've heard. It's going to be a LONG 6 months.
