I forgive Michael for being annoying in season 2 since he explained the whispers.

I think that was a real commercial break because we got it too.  And then after the commercial, the fight continues.  And Ben getting freed from the tree was a plot hole I noticed too.  If anyone else say anything differently, please share.

Yeah, the island being underwater is bugging me too.  I can't buy into them engineering a reality where the island sunk when they could've just engineered one where the island didn't exist at all.  I feel they should've done something more symbolic and meaningful with that.  Like having the island rise up from the water at the very end and they all step into the light and are back on the island to live out their lives in paradise.

I love how the thought police come out and tell everyone who doesn't share their opinion is wrong. 

There were other people on the island that weren't in the plane crash.  They could have died in other ways and ended up on the island.   Ben, Desmond, Richard, Juliet.  They got on the island different ways and times. I'm not saying the other option is wrong, thus the term 'option.'  I'm saying there's another way to look at it. 

So if I said "I think that Oceanic 815 took off from London", no one is allowed to point out that the show explicitly contradicts my opinion?

The fact that Ben and Juliet are at the church is further evidence that they survived as these people did not meet the survivors until after the crash.

Especially since they show the crash during the credits.  No one is around.  And the plane isn't torn apart to be a camp.

No bodies, either, so the plane must have been empty and flown by an artificial intelligence which imagined this story of survivors to keep itself occupied until its batteries ran out and it died.   ::)

lol... yeah... to be fair, the end credits does confuse things and was pretty pointless.  If it had some hidden meaning, I don't know what.  But I'm positive they didn't die in the 815 flight.  Even if you say that the island was some afterlife that led to another afterlife, which could explain Ben and Juliet being there, then you still have to explain people dying and becoming ghosts and then escaping the island and time traveling to a time when Dharma lived on this island that wasn't real with people who were already dead, and it goes on and on...

Yeah, we were blaming Time Warner until we started getting the scrolling messages.  It was funny how they kept advertising the Lost live chat during the show.  I wanted to check it out to see how many people were complaining.  But yeah... standard def played mostly fine.  There were a couple split seconds of flickering color, but that's it.  Still sucked watching it in chopped up low resolution crap.  Like watching with one eye through a screen door after seeing it in HD.

Jack laid in the pool though as the light came back on, which I think would count as crossing the threshold.  I have questions about Desmond too.  So he basically had knowledge of both timelines, yet he was surprised when he uncorked the island and "it didn't work."  What was he expecting to happen?  Did he know he was dead in the other timeline?  Was he expecting to die right there?

So if the island was left uncorked, you think it would have destroyed the world or something?  I don't think MIB would have been a threat if he made it off the island.  I never bought the whole "spreading evil" thing.

They didn't die in the original 815 crash.  Why would they have memories of a life that never happened then?  How would they know each other?  That would mean the island was an afterlife within an afterlife.  And it would mean the plane crashed into Ben and killed him in the pilot like the Wicked Witch of the East because he was there too.

Oh yeah... why is the island underwater during the sideways if none of it was real?  That was bugging me last night while I tried to sleep.

Yeah, I don't understand what David was either besides a soulless illusion.  Jack just forgetting about him doesn't sit well with me.  But I guess it could kind of be like when you have a dream about some other life and you wake up and realize it wasn't real.

I have too many questions to list.  The finale brought up some new ones, like what's the deal with David if they're all dead?  He's just a soulless illusion who doesn't matter anymore?  And didn't everyone who made it off have lives and loved ones during however long they were alive for?  They don't matter and not worth seeing in the afterlife?  I imagine Kate and Sawyer who start new lives and possibly families.  Same with Claire.  I can even see Sawyer and Kate staying together in a relationship.  And Miles never met anyone?  He just wants to chill alone?  I just had a thought... what if the wreckage at the end was the Ajira flight?

If the magic box is a metaphor, then where did Locke's dad come from?  I don't think it's possible that he was transported by any natural means.  Just doesn't seem to be enough time.  And people in general seemed to appear off the island very quick, like Tom when he visited Michael.  For now, I'll just have to chalk it up to creative freedom the same way everything was within less than an hour's walking distance in the finale.

There were lots of people missing.  It can easily be explained by saying they weren't ready to move on or something along those lines, similar to why Faraday and Ana Lucia were left behind.

Huh?  That all really happened.  The sideways stuff is the only stuff that wasn't real.

I didn't really like the whole moving on thing either.  I think it would've been better if the place they were moving on to was the island.  Like have an extra scene of them stepping into the light and being back.  I thought maybe the scene of the beach during the credits would have a hint of that, but I didn't notice anything.
