Lost: Season 6 Reviews

October 24, 2019
Watching "Lost" has been a bit like being pregnant. The thrill of discovery... Until it came down to a few final weeks, fueled by fevered anticipation and the wretched, bloated desire to just get the dang thing over with.

So I've given it another day to sink in, and I'm still profoundly irritated by that ending. It rendered this whole season of Lost pretty silly. And it barely made sense on its own terms.

Lost crashed, and crashed hard... This season wasn't a long con. It was a weak trick.

The richest fantasy series I've seen. But its wrap-up sixth season is a drag: This spidery metaphysical puzzle seems to be dwindling down to a hokey primordial myth of good and evil.

The series, which started with so much promise, stalled some time in its third season and will now be remembered as a monstrosity that fused kitsch to camp.

Like the televisual equivalent of a keyboard-pounding poet... At least we know that we'll only have to suffer through one more season of this foolishness.

The series squandered its final season in a misguided effort to transform its trademark narrative ingenuity into a grand metaphysical statement.

The producer's foolishness in deciding to mix sprinklings of false faiths in with the true not only undercut the spiritual value of the show, it undercut the entertainment value of it as well.

It became a show about placating, even sedating, fans, convincing them that, in the absence of anything coherent or challenging, love was enough.

Does this mean all of Lost counts for nothing? It's another question I can't answer.

The feel-good moments at the end don't make up for six seasons of stringing viewers along without ever providing any real answers or any real closure.
