I have a dear friend who's been warning me and others against getting sucked into LOST for at least four years, probably more like five and a half. But he has never been able to sway my devotion to this quirky show that I consider one of the best written ones on television, present and past.
I've got three hours left (next Tuesday night, followed by the two hour finale the following Sunday) to savor the performances and mysteries of LOST. Some folks are worried the writers won't be able to pull off a satisfactory ending. I'm not worried. Yes, there will be some mysteries that remain unanswered. They can't tie up six years of questions into a tidy bow in three hours; I don't think they should even try. But I still have faith that I will feel satisfied when all is said and done. It will be a whole lot of fun to see what others think when the dust settles.
I can't tell you how much I enjoyed reading the LOST articles in the May 14, 2010 issue of Entertainment Weekly. They were superb, and I encourage all LOST fans to grab a copy before they disappear from the magazine racks this Thursday or Friday.
What say you, fellow LOST fans? Do you fear the writers will fail us in the end or will you be content when the final show is over?
