There’s no denying how much of an impact LOST made on television. People who watched it were hooked and people did everything they could not to miss an episode. Books were written, sites were created, comics were drawn and Cable Television services no doubt enjoyed a real boon when it came to their sales figures. LOST wasn’t just a show – it was THE show.
And then, when the ending came, LOST really lost it.
It’s tough to conclude such a sprawling story like LOST in any kind of meaningful and satisfying way. To date, the only multi-season show that really never lost track of the story it was telling was Babylon 5, but that’s a matter of debate for a completely different site.
The really issue with LOST’s ending stemmed from a complete and total disregard for consistency when it came to the writing. With such a massive and interchangeable team of writers, it was bound to happen but the real issue came when so many threads of plot were introduced and then the ending was so abrupt.
Without giving too much away, the writers went for a safe bet and tried to create a character-driven finale. The problem there, however, was that the show became about so much more than the characters and when NONE of that was wrapped up, that’s where LOST really lost.

One of the brilliant things about “Lost” is its title. It works on multiple levels, as the characters are literally lost, as they are stranded on an island, but they are figuratively lost too. Each character was at a crossroads when he/she boarded Oceanic Flight 815. However, these characters don’t really “live” until the plane crash.
As Jack Shephard says, it doesn’t really matter who they were before the crash. What matters is what they do on the island. The Read the rest of this entry »

To borrow a phrase from Winston Churchill to describe the show LOST; “It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma, but perhaps there is a key.” From the very beginning the numbers that kept showing up in every episode seemed that they were going to be that key to unlocking the secrets of the island.
While we’ll never truly understand what the numbers 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, and 42 refer to, we do know they were used to pick the final candidates Read the rest of this entry »

Where was the Island in Lost? Well, since most of the series was shot on location in Oahu, it was in the South Pacific with the other Hawaiian Islands.
The picturesque vacation spot was less than kind to the cast, many of whom racked up their first ever DUI violations. Several of those would go on to blow even more roadside breathalyzer exams during their time on the show. The excuse offered in interviews? Once the paradise became passe, there was nothing to do for fun but drink.
If you’re referring to the physical location of the Read the rest of this entry »

Throughout its six season run the TV show Lost seemed to pose more questions than it ever managed to answer. Each episode was accompanied by a large amount of theories put forward by fans and journalists about what the latest installment meant, and what the overall meaning of Lost could be.
In the buildup to the finale many fans put forward their theories about what Lost was really about; was the island some form of pergatory for the dead passengers of the plane crash, or were events being controlled by an Read the rest of this entry »

Viewers of the hit show “Lost” were understandably confused when a polar bear made an appearance on the tropical island in the second half of the pilot episode. The bears are referred to again in the episode “Solitary,” when a roar is heard echoing throughout the jungle, and in the episode “Special,” when Walt is attacked by a bear. Charlie claims he saw a polar bear in the episode entitled “Dave.” The references to polar bears continue throughout each season of the series.
The DHARMA Initiative first brought polar bears to the Read the rest of this entry »

Part of the reason that “Lost” was so popular was because of the show’s interesting, compelling and intriguing cast of characters. The following characters were some of the most important on the show.
