.... bar the last 30 minutes.
The ending didn't do the show justice IMO. Too easy to close it like that, as if to say the Island doesn't matter, they're all dead anyway.
Don't get me wrong, it was an absolutely epic series, some amazing acting and truly brilliant scenes, but personally I think the ending was a let down. If I'm honest it just feels like what I already feel about religion. You can't explain anything, so lets just throw some mumbo jumbo into the equation to help. The ending in the church was pretty cringeworthy, but suppose that reflects that it's an American show.
I do kinda get it, don't get me wrong, they all lived together but all eventually died and the FST was their afterlife I'm assuming .... but they've just left it feel…Read more >
This blog is more for me to get my thinking down, but also for those that aren't sure how amazing this episode was in the whole Lost adventure
1) We learnt that Jacob and MIB were brought to the Island
2) They were touched the step mother and this made them unable to hurt each other and explains in part where the rules came from - I've seen people moaning that they could beat each other up, but it's more they can't kill each other, just look at Jack and Sawyer fighting, it's the same thing. They were touched by Jacob, MIB and Jacob were by the step mum. They can hurt each other, but not kill each other
3) Smokey was created by his soul being seperated from his body in the light tunnel
4) The source of the Island is paramount. MIB first, Dharma…Read more >
One thing I've been thinking since The Package is when Jin shoots Mikhail in the eye .... I can't get my head round whether it fits into the 'Whatever happens happens' philosophy, in the fact that irrespective of the two timelines, he's always going to get shot in the eye .... or if it means that the FST is behind the OS and after being shoot by Jin, he's going to end up on the Island ....
I've been thinking the two timelines has been a bit distracting considering the fact this is the last season, but I'm hoping that it's going to click into place and make me wonder why I ever thought different ....Read more >
Man, the end of season 5 was quality. So many answers, but yet so many more questions because of it. Is Jacob really dead, what does it mean that Ben has killed him, which side are illana and her team on, why are Charles and Ben set the same rules as Jacob and his nemisis about not being able to kill each other, why did Jacob meet the Oceanic 6 and why was Richard talking in Latin.
Anyway, my point is very small to all of this, but when we saw Juliet as a child, was it me or were the surroundings reflective of a more modern time, rather than when you would expect her to be a child considering she is in her late 30's. She should have been born around the 60's or 70's, yet it didn't look like this at all.
Could it be that either I'm thinking t…Read more >
