LOST: The Greatest Show of ALL TIME!

Wow! Okay, I don't know where to begin. It has now been 13 hours since I watched LOST come to an end and I'm still reeling. Nothing I've ever seen has ever brought that type of emotion to me. It was perfect in every way.

Ya know, I always had faith that the writers would give us the best possible ending but there was always a small part of me that worried that mysteries left unanswered may leave me a bit unsatisified. I couldn't have been more wrong.

The genius of the writers is that they have proven everything LOST stands for, in the fans themselves. We are men of science/men of faith. Even though the writers have left many things open to interpretation, it doesn't matter to me anymore. It all makes sense. It was always about these people, they were always going to be the ones to end the cycle, and Jack was always meant to die to save them all.

I went from being a man in science who didn't want a total mystical ending to embracing the faith that has been right in front of us from the beginning. The show was always about science vs. faith and like Jack said Locke was right from the beginning. The reasoning for everything doesn't matter. The characters never found out the answer to everything because they didn't need to and neither do we. This was their story. I believe the writers killing the Man in Black halfway through the episode proves just that.

Another important thing everyone needs to remember is that everything that happened on the island was real, like Libby said to Hurley all the way back in "Dave.. I'm real, you're real, this is all real. Jack dies and saves them all finally fulfilling his destiny. The Ajira plane leaves and Kate, Sawyer, and company went on with their lives. Hurley and Ben stayed behind as the new Jacob and Richard. This is the truth. The ALT was their reward. The place that they could all come together to move on and let go.

Ben choosing to not move on was beautiful and fitting. Whether you contribute it atoning for his sins or because he had unfinished business, it doesn't matter. I believe he needed to have a family and experience real love before he could ever reach the peace the rest of our Losties do. Eloise Hawking knew all along what was going on, probably from the very beginning when we meet her in "Flashes Before Your Eyes." She finally lived in an existence where she was able to be the mother to her son that was robbed from her before he was even born. That's all the explanation on Eloise I could ever need.

Finally getting to see Jack and Christian come face to face was worth all the time I've waited. I love that they didn't put into words how much love and guilt they felt for each other because they didn't need to. One thing that came out of Jack's time on the island was acceptance. He had to forgive his father and understand his own pain. As much as this show is about all our characters, a lot of it was directly about Jack.

Jack is the one who had to come full circle and really sacrifice himself for the greater good of possibly the whole world. The final image of the show being Jack's eye closing in the very field where it all began was poetic and spoke volumes. As he watches the Ajira plane leaving the island once and for all, he is at peace and has done his job. "All roads lead here."

Asking questions about the Dharma Initiative, the Others, the Egyptians, and everyone else is unimportant now. To me, they were all the people who have come and failed, allowing the Man in Black to be right. They've all "come, fight, destroy, corrupt" but the Losties are the ones who ended it all, who figured it all out. They proved "It only ends once."

There are so many more things I could say about this episode and I'm sure I'll say it all in time. One thing I know for sure, the podcast for this episode with be epic!

Thank you for listening to my thoughts. I've never felt so fulfilled from a television show before in my life.

Namaste, Marissa

My Thoughts on Happy Town

Okay, okay, okay I know I promised to have an entry up the other day and it never happened so I'm sorry! I'm just veryy tired lately but that won't stop me today! I was gonna talk about Big Love and The Office but a show I've been kind of anticipating just so happened to air it's first episode a little while ago.

ABC has been trying to find it's next LOST with each new drama they've given the green light to and so far they've fallen flat. Flash Forward was advertised as being the next show of choice for all us crazy LOST fans.. well they couldn't be more wrong. Flash Forward is a mess of a show. The actings horrible, the dialogue is forced and unrealistic, and the whole feel of the show is nothing, I mean NOTHING, like LOST.

I kind of feel like the show is doing poorly in the ratings department due to said advertisment and it's ABCs own fault. You do NOT try to compare a new show to something as developed and well received as LOST is.. that's a big no no. The plot can't even save the show! It's an interesting concept but when you already have talks of another blackout in the first season, it just raises questions on how much material they really do have and how long it could possibly last. They probably should have made it a mini series and called it a day.. speaking of mini series..

V was something I was very excited about. The moment I saw the first episode, I downloaded the original and went on a watching spree. The original was a two part mini series that was satisfying in every possible way. They tried to make it into series back in the 80s and that failed, so what makes them think it'll work now?

I must say of the two shows I've mentioned, V is the superior. I mean I've even been thinking about basing my second podcast on it. But again it's been compared to LOST and the ratings aren't very good. It doesn't help that they showed 4 episodes like 6 monthes ago then put it on hiatus till March.. this is not a very good approach. They also did this with Flash Forward after about 1/3 into the season. You can not expect a viewer to become a super fan of a show that isn't even given time to develop before putting it on hiatus. It's absolutely pointless!

I still believe V has a lot of promise but I wonder how far the show will be able to go on. Anyone who's seen the mini series knows shit hits the fan pretty quickly and doesn't stop till the last episode. I understand that for a mini series format, it HAS to be that way but it worked because there's not much to be done once you find out the V's intentions.

But whatever, now on to possibly a future favorite show of mine.. HAPPY TOWN!

I've been seeing commercials for awhile concerning Happy Town and it def. caught my attention. I didn't even realize it was on tonight and lo and behold, the moment I opened my eyes from a nap, it was minutes from starting.. talk about luck.

Let me say that if any show can be compared to LOST, it may just be Happy Town. The writers of this show understand how a show based on mysteries is supposed to go down. Granted, this is totally premature but the flow of this first episode was perfect. The writing is on point so the sense of foreboding and mystery starts and continues through the entire episode.

Sheriff Griffen, played by actor M.C. Gainey (who was Tom Friendly on LOST =D), raised all our eyebrows when he has random spouts of questions that make no sense. Now this is where I have to mention LOST haha LOST has a way of leaving trails of questions that, as viewers, we know are not only important but possibly vital to everything. With LOST, I always feel like something big is about to happen and it makes every second of watching enjoyable. I can see Happy Town going down a similar path.

The setting is very important in a show and just like the island is to LOST, Bon Temps is to True Blood, and Miami is to Dexter.. Happy Town has def. picked the right setting. A cold Minnesota town where nothing bad every happens.. except for that crazy Mystery Man guy who just so happens to make victims seem to completely disappear lol

As a pilot episode, this show def. delivered.. mysteries were opened, a minor one was solved, and it gave us enough introductions to get a feel for these characters. The pacing was very good and I was throughly entertained for the whole hour. One of the things that makes LOST one of the best shows of all time was it's pilot. It was original, scary, funny, crazy, mysterious and the list goes on and on. It made us think for a change! There's so many mindless shows on tv and LOST is def. not one of them. You have to pay attention and catch the little things.. I mean I honestly feel like I'm a professional LOST viewer sometimes haha =)

Look, all I'm saying is that everyone should give this show a chance. I could be totally wrong, being that it's only the first episode, but I know a good show when I see one and this def. is. I'll def. be tuning in next week and my brain has started thinking of a Happy Town podcast? hmm.. i don't know.. def. a possibility.

Did you watch tonight? Did you enjoy it? If you haven't watched, will you now that I've praised it? LOL! All in all, this show has potential to be GREAT!

Thanks for reading and hopefully, I can stay motivated and update more frequently!

Namaste and Good Luck,
