Was LOST a sexist show? Let's look!
- Kate: Season 1 - A interesting character with her own goals and history.
Season 2 to 5 - Exists solely as a prop for Jack and Sawyer's development.
Season 6 - Allowed a relationship beyond Jack and Sawyer, this treated as shocking.
- Sun: Season 1 to 4 - A interesting character with her own goals and history.
Season 5 - JIIIIIIIN! WHERE IS MY HUSBAND? BEN (who she's holding hostage for killing Jin, even though there's no possible way she could know he was responsible for the explosion of the freighter) WHERE IS MY HUSBAND?
Season 6 - Silent, later dead.
- Claire: Season 1 - A interesting character with her own goals and history.
Season 2 to 3 - CHARRRRLIIIIE. MY BABBBBBY.
Season 4 - Nothing
Season 6 - Only worthy of development now that she's insane, backstory glossed over, relation to Jack completely unimportant, all mysteries around her and Aaron ditched because according to Darlton they were never important and why are these stupid fans thinking otherwise.
- Juliet: Season 3 - A interesting character with her own goals and history.
Season 4 - Kisses Jack, nothing else.
Season 5 - Becomes Sawyer's happy girlfriend, dies twice to motivate Jack and Sawyer.
Season 6 - Dies again for extra motivation, almost instantly forgotten by everyone, becomes Sawyer's happy girlfriend for eternity.
- Shannon: Season 1 - A interesting character with her own goals and history. Hated by fans for being self-obsessed and irresponsible, unlike such paragons of selflessness and responsibility as Sawyer or Charlie.
Season 2 - Senselessly dies in order to motivate Sayid.
Season 6 - Becomes Sayid's happy girlfriend for eternity.
- Ana Lucia: A interesting character with her own goals and history, who is hated for being too much like the male characters, and then dies to motivate Sawyer and Jack.
- Libby: Season 2 - Her history is left completely unknown (while the backstories of the male characters such as Jack or Locke are driven into the ground), she's a glorified extra in most episodes and she's eventually killed to motivate Hurley.
Season 6 - Becomes Hurley's happy girlfriend for all eternity.
- Charlotte: Season 4 - A interesting character with her own goals and history.
Season 5 - Dies to motivate Daniel.
Season 6 - Goes on random date with Sawyer, almost becomes Daniel's happy girlfriend for all eternity.
- Ilana: Season 5 - A interesting character with her own goals and history.
Season 6 - Shoved into background, story cut for "lack of time", dies meaninglessly.
- Penny: A interesting character with her own goals and history. Well, maybe she would be if we saw anything of her personality or backstory except for her being Desmond's happy girlfriend.
- Eloise: Awesome first appearance that is forgotten about except for one throwaway reference (because weird time shit is only interesting when it involves men, like Jacob). Becomes a interesting character with vague goals and a mostly unexplored history.
- Danielle: A interesting character with her own goals and history, who is killed randomly. Backstory later told from the POV of...a man.
- Alex: A interesting character with her own goals and history, who apparently had little reaction to meeting her real mother, and who is killed to motivate Ben.
- Cindy: A character that is very suspicious, given her quick disappearance and brainwashing. Naturally, she's never more than a bit part and may have died off-screen. Or not. It's never really said.
- Naomi: A mysterious character, who is murdered in cold blood by Locke because the voices in his head told him too. Murder forgotten after next season's premiere, and later everyone's mourning the death of the good, heroic and right John Locke.
- Nadia: Spends years looking for Sayid, only to be killed off to motivate him. Oh, and she's not his destined happy girlfriend; instead that's some blond girl he was with for a week.
- Zoe: Hated by fans because they felt she was ugly and pointless. Since previous henchmen like Mr Friendly were so attractive and necessary to the plot.
- Rose: Actually, her storyline was pretty good!
So there you have it! Lost was obviously a very female-friendly show.
