    The morning after the finale aired my boss told me "well I'm glad I stopped watching in season 3, turns out they were in purgatory the whole time"
    "did you actually watch it?"
    "no, but my cousin explained it to me."
    I then walked away.

    Given that interaction (and every other conversation I've had about lost with someone outside my immediate circle of friends) I'm not surprised that "they were dead the whole time" is the commonly accepted belief. Probably half the people who were saying that never watched the show.

    I had to get over those fucking people quickly so I didn't have an aneurism.

    like, sorry if you interpreted it that way and read this, but I think you're a goose

    also I went to best buy at 1 PM and they were sold out of the blu-ray complete set. so I went to another and they were sold out too.

    so I spent my gift card on Dexter and decided I'm never going to best buy again. EAT THAT BEST BUY! I'll be ordering from amazon soon. would have today but I ended up ordering a new phone instead.

    What's worse is that I started correcting people and was told, "Okay that's fair enough. I don't agree with it, but it's a cool interpretation and makes more sense than just saying they weren't dead at all. How's it deal with Linus and Hurly though?"

    WHAT?!

    I spelled it out and the guy was practically patting me on the head and telling me how cute my little idea on how it really ended was.

    yeah my friend after the episode goes "I love how they left it so open ended" and at the time I didn't like the ep as much as I do now but, even still, my response was what the fuck are you talking about? what was open ended about that?

    I understand and appreciate any work can ultimately be interpreted in any way, but a show goes to certain lengths to tell a story and sometimes it feels like people just ignore it.

    Cant stress enough how much I loved "New Man In Charge".

    And, in some bizarro way, it made me like the finale MORE.

    The finale was the wrap up of the sideways timeline, and the end of the core island drama of good vs. evil. It was the big guns that didn't melt my brain, but were critical to finishing the story.

    The New Man In Charge said "Also, life went on and this stuff happened." and allowed me to watch the Finale without going "I wish someone would ask about..."

    I miss this show so much.

    Got my complete series in the mail today. I could watch Jack doing the flying super punch over and over again.

    Also, I want to echo all of the love for New Man in Charge. It's like they said, he we know you wanted all of these things explained so here you go. I have to say though, I don't think that it fits anywhere in the finale, thematically at least.

    Yeah, I'm glad it was a supplemental thing

    People that say it should have been tacked onto the ending are crazy

    If you seriously think that's a more fitting ending than Jack's eye closing you should perhaps get your brain checked

    *smashes face repeatedly into wall*

    CHRIST!!!!! I can't believe how stupid people still are. This guy made a blog entry asking people to explain Lost to him as he had never seen it and at least half of the replies were people saying, "OMG the ending was so lame, it turns out that they were dead the WHOLE TIME!"

    People still believe this?!
    Perhaps you should review some of my posts in this thread on the matter.

    Most beliefs on Lost form the hardcore fans tend to put full faith into one conversation in the final episode and ignore anything contradictory before it (or contrive a lot of complicated filler). Theories that try to treat each episode more equally and tie together the parts that fit best or make the most sense (which is what I think a lot of more casual fans are doing) does in fact leave it rather open to a few possibilities, up to and including that they are all dead. Despite the fact that this obviously doesn't completely jive with a few things said by one character in the finale.

    Yar. wouldn't you say though that simply because this specific episode is the last episode, it carries special authority with respect to What Really Happened? I'd say that it's not enough that other episodes may allow for different interpretations - there's a certain, well, finality that comes with being the final hour or two of a series, unless that episode in itself undermines its own authority.

    Seriously. There's nothing else on TV at the moment that I have even remotely similar investment in, and none of the new shows appear to be anything special either.

    Sure. There is an understandable reason why many took the conversation between Jack and Christian as the final authority. But even there, IMO most people who scream about people "not getting it" seemed to also themselves really not get all of what was being said there.

    So I was listening to the radio and this fat guy was talking about how they had a local auction on things from the LOST set, and you could take a picture with a lot of these items before the auction. Well the hatch was there, and there were people taking pictures with it. Fat guy sees a family all standing on it to get a picture taken, so he gets in line to get a picture taken on it. When he gets on it and starts posing for pictures, suddenly a security lady from across the room starts screaming, "GET HIM OFF THE HATCH HE'S TOO BIG, HE'LL BREAK IT!" Then hundreds of people turned around from what they were doing to look at him and he said it was the most embarrassed he had ever been. He was also pissed at the fact that they did that to him after entire families were up on it.

    So I want to get that ultimate box set and I already have seasons 1-5 on Blu-ray, 2-5 are still unopened. Is there any place where I could get a decent trade in on these Blu-ray box sets? I mean fuck I'd be willing to just give them to somebody here for 20 bucks a pop if they took the whole lot off my hands.
