    I always found the characters in LOST to be a major strongpoint of the series, and one of the defining criteria that will make this series stand the test of time.

    The brilliant writers have meticulously defined more than 20 main characters adding a plethora of traits to their personalities, and sometimes making them perfect Shakespearian characters.

    [SPOILERS]

    One of them that really stands out to me is Elizabeth Mitchell's Dr. Juliet Burke. Her stroyline over 3 seasons fleshed her out as a perfect tragic character. She was bound for suffering in her two lives off and on island. Her pivotal role at the end of the 5th season showed the height of desperation and suffering she went through to choose to believe that a nuclear detonation will be a valid way of her to reach her happily-ever-after.

    A little consolation comes to her in the afterlife, and to all others with her, but her character is one of the best developed on the series IMO.

    What's your favorite character on LOST?

    By Elizabeth Burke you mean Juliet right? ;)

    I liked Charlie a lot, then he was killed off. Personally I found his death the most pointless one, he still had time to get out of the room before the water completely shut him in! icon_sad.gif

    I also liked Sun & Jin, there's a ton of change between them as individuals and as a couple. I was so happy for them to reunite at the end..only to be killed off icon_sad.gif

    Needless to say, all of my favorite characters were killed off, so I stopped growing an attachment to them all lol.

    Jack was my favorite, not just because he was the best looking guy on the show, but because I identified with him the most. (I like to fix every problem too.)

    I was really ticked off when they killed Charlie. He was such a lovable buffoon.

    Claire and her baby ended up seeming pointless in the end.

    Yes, Juliet was amazing ... both the character and the actress. And I particularly loved Locke ... well the first 2-3 seasons. He was my desktop image for a long time, lol.

    I was also very intrigued by Mr. Eko. I had read how the actor's parents were murdered in their home country in Africa and he asked to be written off the show, because he wanted to film a documentary about their life. So they did. But I have always wondered where his character was destined to go. He seemed so thoughtfully written and seemed to play such a central spiritual role in the series.

    Juliet?!

    I gave up after season four.. but oh my god I hated Juliet. She was the worst character - such a condescending bitch.

    Dominic Monaghan (Charlie) was by far the best until he died.. icon_sad.gif

    Sawyer was my favorite by far, basically because he was just a badass.

    Trollileo saidI could never get into Lost. It just felt like a giant clusterfuck.

    I liked the guy with the beard.


    hahahahha the guy with the beard, right. it was definitely a demanding show, very high-maintenance. had to put in the hour every week. after every episode I'd yell at the TV like "FUCK I HATE THIS SHOW" but couldn't not watch the next episode. loved it

    Mr Eko was the most intriguing for me in his one season. I do agree that Juliet was awesome too. I cannot understand why Elizabeth Mitchell did not get an emmy nomination! Hurley might have been my favorite though.

    endo saidNikki and Paulo

    Nikki and Paulo were a bizarre toss-in. I guess the producers were getting a lot of fan mail wanting to know what happened to the other survivors of the crash. Nikki and Paulo weren't likable, and weren't hitting it off with viewers, so they killed them off again. Rodrigo Santoro was pretty to look at while he lasted.

    I was always partial to Hurley. He was the most genuine character on the show, as was Charlie. Charlie did NOT need to die. Keeping him around would have made Claire a much more relevant character at the end of the series, instead of the feral bitch she turned into.

    Juliet always seemed condescending to me, though considering her predicament, I can't say that I blame her for acting the way she did. She was a good balance to Sawyer, who was just an asshole most of the show.

    Lostpedia has a great breakdown of the entire series:
