    That's actually what I think happened.. after like the second season, the writers had no idea what the fuck to do. It's almost as if they thought "this show isn't going to go anywhere"

    The thing is, it started off great. It was somewhat tolerable and understandable. I personally would have preferred it if they weren't dead, but rather they were on an island in the Bermuda Triangle or something. But they just ruined it.

    And the thing is, no matter how it gets explained to you, it still sounds stupid and makes no sense.

    I watched one episode and lost interest in it.The title really suits the show,once you watch it you'll be lost.

    I hate the damn show, but just wanted to say... they're not dead...
    well they are, they're alive for the whole thing except the city 'flashbacks' in the final season.
    Everything that happened on the island did happen... with very little explanation.
    I'm not good at explaining endings to a show i barely watched though, just google it dammit.

    Lost was one of the best shows ever. Now if you don't understand it, don't undervalue it

    Oh no, I'm basing my thoughts on it for good reason. First 3 seasons, great. 4-6, horrible.

    I think/thought the same thing.
    After about half way through season 3, I lost [​IMG] interest, and stopped watching.

    Basically, the first series made some sense (except the black smoke and the weird kid who read about stuff, which then always appeared, for no explained reason).

    After that, it stopped making sense. They had to push a button every 108 minutes to save the world, then decided they couldn't be bothered, and the world almost ended, then they turned a key and the was a big light and then they didn't have to push the button anymore. Then a boat came, so they moved the island, dislodging it from time. They all jumped about in time a bit, then eventually all met up in the past, and set off a bomb in the middle of the island. After that, they all came back to the present, Hurley took over from Jacob as ruler of the island, changed the rules, and then everyone died and met up in a church.
