    So I finished last episode of Lost and .... well what Im trying to say is that Lost is very lost. I need some help explain what happened. I mean the planed did crash and they were all dead from the beginning? They didnt landed on the island?

    No, everything on the island happened. The "flash forwards" that you saw in the final season were the afterlife which took place after each one died (whenever that was for the individual). Personally, I think it was a brilliant series and a great finale.

    You should prolly google it, there are tons of websites dedicated to explain that final episode, I only watched the first season, I became bored after that one.

    plot cancer. it died of systemic plot cancer, with many many lumpy ugly festering plot tumors.

    what really killed it was time travel and all the BS new characters they threw in with it. made you lose a connection to what was happening in that you werent seeing characters you grew to like and you didnt know if what was happening was 'real' so to speak. so it really didnt matter at that point what the hell happened because we were all expecting some sort of dumb reset button to get things back to 'normal' but that never happened.

    Check out http://lostpedia.wikia.com. It's by far the most comprehensive guide to all things LOST.

    We ended up watching the entire series all at once via Netflix, and are glad we chose that route. I couldn't imagine waiting 6 years to get through the whole series. Over all, I loved the series, and ended up buying thie DVD box sets after we finished.

    The whole gist of the series is this: The island where they crashed is a "plug" that covers the life force for the entire planet. It changes location over time, and seems to be somewhat sentient. Humans have occupied the island for millennia, with a person in charge of protecting it. The scientific research stations were built in the early 70s by the DHARMA Initiative, who accidentally tapped too far in to this life force, with disastrous results. The whole series ended in an alternate reality where all the main characters had eventually passed away, and were reuniting in the afterlife (potentially thousands of years in the future, depending on how long Hurley was in charge of the island in the end).

    I thought the series was brilliant, though admittedly I didn't like seasons 3 and 4. I thought they were too soap opera-ish, and nothing was advancing the storyline. We almost stopped watching it because of that. However, the writers got their act back together in season 5, and I found it very enjoyable all the way to the very end. Te season 6 box set also has a very clever epilogue that ties a lot of loose ends very nicely.

    I hope that hopes to answer some questions for you. I'm kind of of a LOST junkie, so feel free to ask me anything.

    I do think the show is brilliant, I got lost halfway but I think I found my way back. I specially like the last scene where Jack was laying down in the forest and the dog ran out from nowhere, it like the scene from the first episode, and the plane was flying instead of crashing. I thought it was brilliant.

    Thanks for the links. I was bored, browsing Netflix and clicked on Lost by accident. I thought Matthew Fox was kinda cute and charming in a way so I watched the first episode and I couldnt stop watching after that. Finished the whole series in 2 weeks matter of fact lol True season 3 and 4 were the weakest one, when they introduced "the Others" I thought they would be like evil and such but turned out it was a blah. Though I did enjoy it.

    so basically, what ever happened happened, the planed did crash, and only 5 or 6 survived (the people on the plane in the last episode) and they got back to their life. died eventually and reunited in afterlife. I think I got it now icon_lol.gif OMG WHAT AN AMAZING SHOW !!!!!
