The episode sucked, but still..."There is no purpose in life greater than watching Lost" was the only answer I could give on that one. Never missed an episode, never will! I just won't be rewatching that one in the future.

Well, actually...maybe for Titus. Hahah.

And the "Which show blows" Q was kind of hard. Almost every single sci-fi show dropped the ball by the end and became nearly impossible to watch. Most dragged it on and on too long.

If the answer does turn out to be some kind of mystical, God kind of crap on Lost though, I'll be disappointed. I can handle religious/supernatural explanations for certain things, but the way they revealed it and set it up on Lost was so weak (Golden cave! Vague answers about purposes and life, death, and rebirth!), that it made it almost unbearably lame. I would prefer science and physics with a dash of sci-fi creativity tossed in. I could believe Smokey was created by an electromagnetic explosion (Like Desmond, only ten times worse than his accident). Him going into a golden pit of Hell that was poorly explained and coming out dead and smokey? Yeah, no.

Hopefully next week all will be forgiven.

Ahhh, you are still the most devoted Lost fan that I know of! :) So I'm glad we're on the same page about the super suckiness of this episode! Yeesh! What a waste of time.

I'm opposed to tv "mythology" in general. The bigger and more epic writers try to be in stitching all the pieces together, the worse the episode, usually. I remember dreading the "Cigarette Smoking Man" eps of X-Files as those were always the worst. You'd think Lost, ending while it's still a hit, more or less, could have avoided such ridiculous explanations. I'd still rather be mystified, honestly.

Let's just move forward and forget this week of Lost ever happened!
