Season 4 was the best, but I have a feeling it's going to get pretty silly now. The foreshadowing for the plot now is pretty weird.

You really have to try and roll with it. But, yeah, season 4 is very good. Season 5 isn't too shabby though.

The haters on Seasons 5/6 of Lost are a vocal minority.  Ignore them and continue to bask in Lost's greatness.

No, really, the show ended terribly. Terribly. I started watching on the premiere date, and was captivated. The writers were stringing us along. I admit to a few "wow" moments during Season 5, especially the ending bits, but I absolutely loathed Season 6. They didn't tie up a lot of the loose ends. And the whole bit about Widmore ended... awkwardly.

Anyways, the ride from Season 1 to Season 4 is pretty awesome. From there onward it becomes pretty disappointing. The whole "Flash-sideways" parts were annoying and tedious.

Yeah, Eko was pretty epic. I remember being so sad that he died. I liked Desmond, Eko, and Locke. There were a few other cool characters.

Oh so even you disliked the last two seasons?

It seems like it's at a good place to end now, going BACK to the island after getting off is taking the plot to ridiculous levels. Sure there's still some plot threads hanging (not much revealed about the island, whatever the smoke monster is, and of course the people still stuck back there), but this seems like if those were covered it'd be a nice place to end.

I'm pretty sure I've said that before, yes. It pains me to say that I disliked something about the show but so much of it just got too damn bizarre.

I liked the last two seasons and enjoyed watching them save for one episode.  There are several truly excellent episodes that dig deep into the characters.  I appreciated that they explored some metaphorical and allegorical elements, even if the resolution to many threads was lacking.

If so, then I'm weird with you.  I thought it was really just Season 6 that was terrible.

This time travel stuff is kind of ridiculous, and gives me the impression the writers ran out of ideas.

Season 5 actually got good about midway through it turns out. The time travel stuff was still kind of silly but the finale was really good and I guess they needed to be in 1977 for it to work.

But I'm really not big on these Not-Locke and Ben stuff...I'm actually finding the "alternate" or whatever reality stuff where the plane landed in the premier more interesting than the stuff on the island.

The ending was abominable.

"I'm sorry you had to see me like that."

I have to say, that should go down as one of the all time classic TV lines.

Done with the finale now.

I didn't hate it like many did, but there were a lot of obvious Handwaves that were basically just "because the writers said so", like why Jacob and his brother couldn't kill each other ("I made it so you can't hurt each other", that was seriously the entire explanation) or that deal with Desmond and the electromagnatism. And if that alternate reality was some type of purgatory after all the characters are dead, it opens up some questions in regards to the characters who survived and presumably died of natural causes, why does Claire have any memories of Aaron as an adult for example? Oh and the final battle with that smoke monster shapeshifting thing was REALLY anti-climatic.

But no ending really could've been satisfying so I won't complain as much.

As someone who has only watched the first season and the first half of 2, I feel almost compelled to watch the rest of it after reading through this thread and how completely up it's own ass that show apparently went.

Those who shout the loudest about respecting “diversity” and the culture of others, cannot stir themselves to respect the French enough to learn their language and understand their culture.

The first 5 seasons are great IMO. It's only the sixth which is an abomination.
