It only ends once. Anything that happens before that is just progress.
No longer concerned with holding anything back, Lost is making confident strides toward its 23 May finale, building momentum in the overarching plot while still providing satisfying episode-by-episode story arcs. For the first time, I’m watching new episodes as they come out, rather than waiting for the DVD release, and have been surprisingly comfortable with having to wait each week for the story to continue. What can I say, this is my kind of show.
While Lost may not be everyone’s cup of tea, it’s clearly one of the best-executed series in history, and in many ways has led the television industry into a new generation of storytelling.
