So I've waited over a week to write anything about LOST. Sill don't know if I'm ready or have anything coherent to say. I've had a few people ask me what I thought about the finale. Poor people at my work whom I'm sure are asking to be nice because I talk about the show so much, but are not followers themselves. And all I can say is that overall I'm happy, overall I'm satisfied.

I had emotional closure with the characters. However, I was left with some uncertainty about the physical nature of the show. I don't know how else to put it. I don't care that I didn't get concrete answers to series long mysteries. But I have a sense of unrest about the "physical" side of the characters and their souls. Perhaps these are spiritual questions which I'm not ready to answer in myself. That the show took such a definite stance on a spiritual level is interesting to me - and a little unsettling. But a show that makes me question such things - a show that makes me look inside and examine my own reaction - how can that be bad?

I actually couldn't ask for more.

I'm still mulling it over myself. What was real? What was a mindgame? What was the deeper spiritual journey? They got us snared into their lives, and we are so conditioned from formulaic writers and programs that we expected logic? This may take awhile. In the meantime, I miss them.
