Lost's Final Season: The Endless Debate Continues

August 25, 2010

An amusing (albeit exasperating) critique on the tortuous “revelations” in Lost‘s sixth and final season, by Adam Quigley

Q: Why does falling into “The Source” turn you into a smoke monster that sounds like a machine and judges the lives that people have lead?
A: It just does, ok? [ … ]

Update: Not surprisingly, the article fueled a heated debate in the comments section, which are just as entertaining.  One really managed to stick out, however, as very compelling and zen-inducing:

I’ve come to the conclusion that the two camps of Lost (those who disliked the finale and those who liked the finale) are just like religious nutters and empiricists. The empiricist constantly asks questions, looking for trends in nature that unify all of the little details they’ve been analyzing over and over. The religious nutter doesn’t question and just accepts the world as it is without any curiosity. Authority figures are always right and what they say is always the truth. Once you can see that dichotomy, then you understand why people either liked the finale or didn’t like it.
