Yikes guys, it’s been two weeks since I’ve posted. I think I am going to have to make this a weekly blog, if anything. Just can’t keep up as a I used to.
So, what has brought me back, you may ask? LOST.
Last night was the LOST finale, and honestly, I am almost rendered speechless at how amazing this show was and how the writers weaved everything to conclude with this amazing ending. Many are complaining that we are still left with questions unanswered. But really, that is the beauty of it. That is the beauty of the show. LOST was about life, death, good, evil, redemption, and to me – the meaning of life. In real life, we don’t have all the answers. Many things make no sense to us. So for the writers to end it as they did, with many of the sci-fi questions still unanswered; this was fine for me. What mattered most was the relationships developed, the bonds forged, the love created, and coming to peace with the fact that things may not turn out the way they thought they might in the end. It all comes down to this – love and happiness. Making the most of life and righting any wrongs so that you can move on to a better place. To me, that was what this show was about. And I am happy with the way it ended because it all came together for me in the end.
WOW. I’m not sure how much more I need to say about this show. If you are a viewer, I think the finale spoke for itself. I watched the show with friends, and frankly almost wish that I hadn’t because I was crying like a baby for the last half hour. I walked home feeling as though something was “off,” as though there was now a void created in my life, as if I had just gone through a horrible breakup. Is it really over? Yes, it is. But after thinking about it more, I have come to peace with that fact. While yes, it is sad that the show is over, like any breakup, I realize that I am happy to have gone through the experience. I have learned so much; it wasn’t all for nothing. As crazy as it may seem, my life has been enhanced by a TV show. Yes, a TV show. I didn’t think this was humanly possible. The writers did an incredible job with this one.
Before I take off, I’d just like to add that my LOST experience has only been enhanced by reading the Filmfodder blog by Mac Slocum. His summaries combined with his sense of humor made this a great read every week post episode. Not only that, but an incredible amount of insight was gained by reading the comments (all 400 of them) on each post. I will really miss this as well.
On that note, it’s bon voyage for me for a while. I need to take a minute, sit back, and think about my life, where it is going, and what I want to accomplish. We only have so much time to do the things we want to do and make the most of our time here. Yes, I realized this before LOST, but it was only enhanced by this viewing experience. LOST was an incredibly moving show that had to come to an end, but it’s legacy lives on. Thanks to the writers for creating this masterpiece.
Until next time,
