This is good news. Especially since they still have so many questions to answer!

But they won't be answering everything.  As a matter of fact, they have admitted that we will be left wondering exactly what they meant when it's over.  NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

They literally can't answer everything, but I think the majority of big questions will be put to rest.

What I want to know is, in tonight's episode, did Sawyer remember how to get a fish biscuit?

I totally agree with your statement, but as far as not giving us answers, I got the impression that they were going to intentionally CREATE more questions in the finale.  I could be wrong...or they could be messing with us. ;)

All I can say is, no matter how it ends, they better have some comprehensive bonuses that explain the show and mythology and loose ends.  They once joked that if Lost was ever canceled, that the final episode would've cut to Joop the Chimp sitting in a chair smoking a cigar and he explains everything about the show.  I think they should really do something like that for the DVD.

Alert!  DVR's set to record the series will probably stop recording at 11:00!  Be sure to set your machines to record the news that night also if you aren't going to be watching it live.  Imagine waiting all this time for the end and then getting the last half hour cut off!   :o

I don't think so. Mine doesn't work that way anyway. When the episodes go past 11 (like they have been 11:03, 11:05...) mine keeps recording. I think its based on the "block" that represents the show in the listings. As long as that block extends to 11:30, the DVR recordings should too.

Yes, if TPTB at the station have programmed the block for the extension.  But when shows like Idol go a minute or so over, it cuts off.  Hopefully the people in charge will see the problems this would cause and will change the tv lineup to reflect the extension before then.

Mixed feelings here. Excited for when I actually see it - but still angry/jealous that I won't be watching the same night as all you guys - as I'll be in a hut without phones or electricity in the middle of a rain forest in northern Thailand that night.   Booooo! (kind of).

Maybe I'm just a cynic, but my first impression was, ok so they have 10 mins. of extra Lost and 20 mins. of extra commercials.

No worries, there is always DVR, but there isn't always the chance to be in the jungles of Thailand.
Fantastic Journey, Zeek!

Just kidding... that sounds like an amazing trip.  Have a blast and just think that coming home from vacation won't be so bad, now!

I hope we get more answers in that extra half hour, even if it's only for what they think is silly stupid stuff. I kind of think they owe the loyal fans something here. A lot of the interviews lately from the producers have been, "you're not going to get the answers you want" statements and the reaction from loyal fans has been negative. I'd like to think they're like, "Hey, you know, we should probably toss them a bone or two and reveal some things." (A girl can dream, can't she?)

I'm sure for every one of us fans out there who have stuck with Lost, there are five who at some point - whether they got tired of (a.)unanswered questions or (b.) ABC jerking Lost around the schedule or (c.) too many re-runs interrupting the season - gave up and quit. We've stuck with it, defended it and supported it and dammit they do owe us some kinds of answers here.  I've gotten so tired of hearing for years, "Oh, don't worry, we know how it will end" and then the end approaches and they're all, "well, yeah, we said we knew how it ended, only we're not so sure we're going to tell you now." >:(

Was it just me, or did there seem like an Oprah ton worth of commercials during the finale? I fear my prediction might have been pretty close to the mark. lol

According to EW.com, there were about 45 minutes worth of commercials during the 2 1/2 hours, but that is inline with a standard 2 1/2 hour period (again, according to them).

At times it seemed like they would show one scene and then go to commercial. It may have been a standard amount of commercials (jury still out) but the pacing certainly wasn't well done.

Another question that has been bugging me...

What was the deal with Aaron. Why was he so important? Or wasn't he? Or did I just imagine that?
Title: Re: LOST Finale extended by 30 minutes!
Post by: Madam P on June 08, 2010, 05:45:20 PM
Darlton would say you just imagined it.   :D

Pay no attention to the baby and the psychic... nothing to see here... move along now...  shoo!  shoo!  Stop asking pesky questions for which there are no answers!   ;D

The whole "he HAS to raised by you" thing... the only thing I can come up with for that is that maybe originally it was going to be a way to encourage Claire to stay with Aaron rather than leaving him lying in the jungle and wandering away to be with Christian/MIB.  Or maybe to encourage Claire to finally decide to come with Sawyer and Kate on the Ajira plane to leave the island for good.  But neither of those things really were tied into that "he HAS to be raised by you" thing at the time they happened, so... *shrug*  I can only assume it was one of those myriad threads that just got dropped before they had actually decided what the "mystique" of the island was, and they never needed to take it up again.

I'm half inclined to agree on this one Madam. The thing about a 6 season series is that it does evolve, as I think everyone would agree Lost did. The issue with the psychic is one where you COULD buy Darlton's explaination that he was a hack and happened to get it right, but I don't really think that is the case seeing as how he returned her money. Maybe what he saw was a forshadowing of the events that would happen to Aaron. Maybe he saw that and then tried to convince Claire that she should not get on the plane to give Aaron away. Maybe all that happened while Jacob was watching, and went to see the psychic to inform him of the part Claire may be destined for as a candidate. Jacob tells him he needs to make sure Claire is on that plane.








Or like you said Madam, they had a plan to develope the story with this theme at the center and then were forced to abandon it when the full scope of the story took shape after season 1 when they decided there would be a Jacob and a Man in Black, and the Light and all that.

I think he foresaw Kate raising Aaron and also saw that it made Claire crazy so he wanted to make sure she raised him and not a squirrel baby. He may have even been seen her following Christian/MIB into the jungle and abondoning Aaron.... this is the theory that makes the most sense in my head even if TPTB had originally had a different idea about it.

If all of that elaborate storyline was just to get to "explain" Kate being crossed off the list, then I say, DAMMIT TPTB...WHAT THE FREAKIN H?!?!?!?!?!? 

Sorry. Just had to spew some hate for a second. Just a lil bit. I'm okay now. Really.                                           meh.

I really think they accomplished their entire purpose in the start we had WTF's , Theorist and Huh/Duh's and in the end they left the door slightly ajar for the WTF's and Theorist just to see how far and how long we would be on the "fringe"
