LOST and found

I admit that I am a LOST junkie and have mixed feelings about the upcoming season finale on Sunday. The storyteller in me wants closure while the story still has a chance of having it, but I admit I am sad to think the magic is over. Sure I can watch the series as I often as I want in years to come on DVD but part of the whole LOST experience was the mind-bending episode-enders that left you paralyzed and perplexed and prickled with questions.

After Sunday I will know too much. Probably not everything. I seriously doubt the LOST writers will explain everything after spending six years explaining nothing. But I will know too much. It won’t be the same. The thrill is gone.

On that happy note, here is a link to a YouTube video that takes that unhappy thought and turns it on its head. Good for a Friday chuckle. And wow, does this video show us the power of soundtrack and images to influence a story.

Monday we shall discuss LOST’s final hours. Until then, stay away from black smoke . . .

    I'm more curious than anything else about the finale. Maybe half the time, the writers take the story where I think it's going; which makes the other half of the time frustrating yet intriguing for me. I can admit I'm LOST (for the most part) at this point, and I'm looking forward to having a huge chunk of my brain free once this thing is over. But I will miss the challenge, the puzzle. The adventure of it all. Like with any good book, I'm sure the writers will leave us wanting more.
