For better or worse, LOST wraps up it's six year run this weekend. Can it live up to the hype? Maybe. Will it hold all the answers to our questions? Probably not. Will it be the TV event of the Decade (2000-2010)?
It may not the best show in the world, but it's certainly one of the most intriguing. I have a feeling that whatever happens during the finale will really polarize the fans. Not as bad as The Sopranos did, but something along the lines of what BSG did. Some people will be satisfied, most won't, but everyone will be talking about it.
So in an effort to catch you up to the phenomenon so you can at least watch the finale without being too confused, here's a recap of the first five seasons:
And then just remember that this season the gimmick is flash-sidewayses, where we see the Lost gang in a world where the plane didn't crash on the island. On that world, everyone's almost got the perfect life, but Desmond is about to fuck it up.
The morale: Never trust a scotsman, they're always out to fuck your shit up.
Here's hoping it's good times, and I'll let you all know what I think later in the week.
Just in case you don't hae a full eight minutes to catch up with Lost, here's the whole thing in about a minute... with cats:
