George Lucas Syndrome takes many forms. This was a perfect example: destruction in place of real drama.

Yikes

Actually, I haven't felt an emotional connection to any of the characters. I figured it was because I watched 5 seasons in 2 months.

Aww, I liked "Fail Sub!"

We did the same, and those were the only characters I've ever really cared about.

Yeah. A (viewer) year and a half for them to get back together and that happens. Hmph.

Well they are together in the alternate timeline. Where, apparently, killing off Daddy's first set of thugs will somehow prevent him from sending others....

Better than how she covertly bought out her father with the settlement from an airplane crash.

VERY true - dude, if I hit the MegaMillions tonight, I couldn 't buy out Daddy, and I doubt the airline gave her $266 million.

This year has been a special kind of bad - pity, because last year was actually pretty good. Go out on a low note, that's what I always say.

I figured they'd kill them off. I'm not mad about it, or disappointed, and I've spent 6 years watching. I'm sure there's an ultimate reason.

(If not, THEN I'll be mad.)

I lack ALL faith in an ultimate explanation. But I haven't devoted six years of my life to this, so it's not as big a deal.

Well I actually liked that episode. It does suck that that the characters died like that, but I'll wait until I see the ending before coming to a judgement. And how can you even compare this with George Lucas's crimes. This is not even close.

I definitely think that LOST is over all better than those last 3 Star Wars films.

But I don't know if they will wrap it up the story well....so the jury is still out on that.

What I'm talking about is a loss of vision. It feels less like, "where does the story go" and more like "how can we fuck with the viewers."

Compare the deaths in this episode of Lost to the deaths in Serenity. One had zero emotional impact, the other was a kick in the gut. For me, at least.

What was somewhat unbelievable about the Sun and Jin was neither of them gave a single thought to their daughter. Sure, it would have been a cliche, but was killing them both off any better? Of course, if they're all already dead, what does it matter?

Exactly. Particularly since they had been talking about her earlier. Sun really wants her mother - and by extension, her father - raising their daughter? I didn't buy it.
