The End Has ComePosted by Dr Snyder on May 22nd, 2010
Pardon me for a small divergence from the usual today. You see, tomorrow evening marks the end of a mini-era: the final episode of Lost. Yes, I admit it, I am a confirmed “Lostie.”
Perhaps it has something to do with my undergraduate degree in radio, TV, and film production, but I truly enjoy and appreciate quality work in storytelling. For me, that’s what Lost has been.
While it is not explicitly a Biblically themed story, there has been quite a dialogue on the issues of faith and science, fate and free will, and purpose in life. Some of the characters have demonstrated that the greatest love is to lay down one’s life for another. Overall, it has been thought-provoking and the character aspect has remained strong over all six seasons.
I also don’t mind a little sci-fi along the way.
That is not someone you want to have in charge of your audit.
For those of you who couldn’t care less about the program, file this posting under “what was that all about?” For those who share my interest, I hope you come away from the final episode satisfied with how it ends.
