"Laughter through tears... my favorite emotion."

In case you didnt know we are HUGE Lost fans. Several years ago, Daniel had a loan assistant whose husband bought her the first 2 seasons of Lost for a Christmas present, and she and he stayed up several nights in a row and watched them. She was obsessed, and brought them in for Daniel saying we had to watch. I remember not wanting to watch cuz it didnt look like my kinda show. I'm not big on drama/suspense/sci-fi. I am totally a romantic comedy/chick flick type.  But we watched it. And pulled several all nighters in a row watching all of the episodes to that point.  Waiting months in between each season was torture. And waiting each week to get more story was even more so. But after these years, it has now come to a close. And while it didnt give us answers to several of the "what the?"s we asked, Daniel and I loved how it concluded. I even cried. And I'm totally not a TV show crier. Certain movies (Charlie, Steel Magnolias, My Life) I can not watch without the water works. But a TV show? Please! But watching the moments of connection the characters had, and the coming full circle, not to mention the comedic tones amid the emotion, well I was weeping. Over a TV show. Sheesh. But I LOVED IT! And am now in mourning that the story has come to an end. Whatever shall we do on Tuesday nights now?

I'm just going to say it. "I'm glad it's over." It was fun while it lasted but season five just about drove me off a cliff, and I've never fully recovered. Great show, great ending.

P.S. I was a little disappointed not to see more about Richard at the end. It would have been nice to see him reunite wtih his wife or find happiness off the island.

I've thought about trying to get Ian to watch that show with me, but I still don't know. We both really like comedy. Not so much drama people. And it drives me INSANE to be left hanging after an episode and from what I hear, that show is pretty bad about that.

Soooooo, I still don't know. But I'm glad you were happy with the ending.

My girls and I enjoyed Lost, and bonded over it. It was fun tossing theories around with them, and comparing notes on who we did and did not like. I liked the show, but I will not miss it that much, because I get to keep the girls :)

That said, I have definitely enjoyed reading your thoughts about Lost.
