Farewell


Never before has a TV breakup hurt so much. Sadly, last night marked the end of one of our favorite shows, Lost. It's really over. After six years and 121.5 hours of episodes, we finally have closure.

On just another Wednesday night, way back in 2004, Will and I flipped the TV channel to ABC, and on the screen we watched as Oceanic Flight 815 exploded and landed on what appeared to be a deserted, tropical island. We immediately realized Lost wouldn't be another "Gilligan's Island". And thus began our infatuation with a show filled with relatable characters who weave a web of mystery and fantasy, telling a story over such a huge canvas and drawing from so many literary and philosophical sources.

Last night's episode was shrouded in secrecy, and possibly one of the most talked about finale's of all time. No one knew what to expect, and many expected to be disappointed. And, to tell the truth, I had pretty low expectations that the producers would be able to wrap up six years worth of mysteries into one extended episode. But now, on the morning after the finale, although I can't get over the fact that it's over, rather than feeling, well, lost, I feel exhilarated. I expected to be mad, sad or confused. I'm not really any of those things. Instead, I'm happy that we stuck with such a great show, that could sometimes be completely puzzling, to say the least. Tonight's finale was perhaps the most emotionally gratifying series ender of all time; the creators gave fans exactly what they promised—resolution on the things that mattered most to the characters. It's over, and it was wonderful. Thank you to the creators of Lost, and thank you to the cast for the best six years of TV ever!

I'll miss my favorite show, but to repeat that famous line from Lost.... "I'll see you in another life, brotha".
