Casinodad & I love LOST, but we haven't been hooked from the beginning. We watched the first episode, but for some reason it just didn't capture our attention. It wasn't until the end of the first season, when we caught bits & pieces of a couple episodes, where we actually said, "Hey, this is pretty good, after all!" Once the DVD set came out at the end of that summer, we spent a couple weeks catching up so we'd be ready for Season Two.
Throughout the series, we've loved the character development & relationships, the Christian themes, the mystery & wondering, & just LOVED getting LOST each week! This past Sunday's series finale did not disappoint. Sure, it answered some questions, but left many more unanswered, but we expected that. I had an idea of what the island was & surprisingly, I was partially correct.
As soon as it was over, I went directly to several sites/blogs to read their reviews & thoughts, hoping perhaps they had answers to our questions. Rather than go into a deep, personal reflection, I thought I'd share those sites/blogs w/ you. I loved what they had to say.
1) I LOVED Kimberly's perspective. She caught some great references, not only to Christianity, but to the Buddhist, Muslim, & Jewish faiths.
2) Danielle Bean wrote up her thoughts for National Catholic Register.
3) Danielle linked to an blog post by Tony Rossi. See his thoughts HERE.
