A couple things. First, a shitty ending doesn't retroactively ruin the show. It doesn't make seasons 1 or 4 any less amazing television from start to finish from the writing to the acting.
They really are. I just wish he let viewers know up front that these videos are split up and titled to feed into the ending, rather than let the be a mystery up until the 5th video. I get that it plays into how Lost executed its main mystery, but too many people are put off by its daunting length.
Its funny, when I was rewatching this and he got to the part about Lost fans I thought for sure he was being hyperbolic or that his experience wasn't really representative of the fans who defend the show. Then I bumped this thread and saw walter white literally saying "you just didn't get it" which reetae extensively goes over and I was just like, oh well I guess he wasn't exaggerating how some die hard fans react.Enjoyed these overall, but the endless 'Lost fans did this or said this' references were a bit annoying.
This show had/has some toxic fandom associated with it. I don't equate that or the faults of the showrunners with what MrEkoFan2 might have been a bit over-passionate about on a forum like this during the show's glory dates
Yeah he nailed that point perfectly. Not only was there mental gymnastics to justify the Losties detonating that bomb, but it completely nullified the ending themes Darlton claimed at the finish line. I did all but clap out loud when he brought that up again at the end.Just want to say that after rewatching this he was right on the money. The show jumped the shark long before it got to that ending but honestly the culmination of everything leading up to a "youre all going to heaven and the island was the most important thing that ever happened to you" was so incredibly stupid and nonsensical when viewed through the lens of events on the show (reminder that the island was so important that all the main characters went on a suicide march to set off a nuke to destory themselves and the island-and that this was the best thing that ever happened to them).
