LOST - The End

That's it. It's done. There will never be another new episode of LOST on TV. I suppose they could create a TV movie or something ridiculous like that, but why would they run the risk of giving us too much of a good thing.

There are a lot of negative things floating around the net right now. About how there weren't enough answers and that it just didn't make sense. But really, why did anyone watch it in the first place? Because we loved the mystery. As much as we all wanted to know what was going on, we were just as intrigued by what we didn't know.

I loved the finale. I wouldn't change a thing. I love that I don't know everything. This reminds me of something I read in a book called, Deadline. I won;t get into the whole detail of the book, but in part of it, a man is in heaven walking around with his guardian angel and getting acclimated to heaven. He stops and asks his guide why he still has questions. Now that he's in heaven, why aren't all the answers known and easily available. The guardian responds by telling him that to assume to know everything is to assume to be God, since He is the only omniscient being. Everything is not meant to be known. It never has been.

Now, I'm not implying that Damon and Carlton are like God. Not in the slightest. But who cares that we don't know everything? I love that because of the unanswered questions, people will be talking about this for years. I mean, people are still wondering who really shot J.R.

I could go on about what I liked specifically about the show, but I won't. Just know that I was smiling when the credits started. I felt as though there was significant resolve and plenty of redemption to go around.

In any case, I applaud the creators, producers, directors, and of course the actors, in a job well done. I laughed. I cried. I even scratched my head a few times. What a great ride.

My pallet is satisfied.

Here are a few pictures from the mini LOST party we had in the man cave.

Liz made us some great food. As always.
