The J.J. Abrams World of Lost *Review and Critic

I was waiting for a long time to see the final parts of J.J. Abrams so called "master piece" and I have to say, as many of you have already figured it out, Lost is no longer what it used to be...



so let me explain what happend here in this awful production, they messed really bad when they changed the script... 1 year ago it was all going just fine but then the production team changes with some new guys and they just decide to change a few script lines which turned out to be the wrost thing they ever did (from season 1 they had 14,5 milion tvs watching lost, season 5 only got 5,7 milions)


season 1? amazing, people were hooked on Lost.


season 2? people start to say things like wtf? guns and secret basements on a desert island?


season 3? hmm... this is getting really weird, there's something missing in here like the main part of the story...


season 4? people can't understand which clips are from the past and which ones are from the future which gets even more confusing with the missing parts of story...


season 5? they stop filming for one whole year and they expect people to continue liking this show?



J.J. Abrams has made an incredible mistake in his film making life and I hope he learns from this.


when you have an Idea, you take that Idea to the end and you don't change it otherwise it's gonna blow up in your face.


they had a script and they should've done it just the way it was planned and not something like this... time travel island? smoke monsters? polar bears in the jungle?


I would rather watch some other fantasy film like disney's cinderella.

I strongly disagree. They set out with an idea from the beginning and drove it where they wanted to go, with only a few sidetracks to please fans (tattoo origin anyone?). What actually went bad for Lost was not the scriptwriting, but the writer's strike and the big time-gap it caused. Now that Darlton have an end in sight, we will start seeing the resolve of the older mysteries, with a few new ones thrown in to be solved before it's all said and done. Abrams is a genius, and Darlton have done very well with picking up the baton and running with it.
I for one cannot wait for next week 8)

Obviously, you really just arent interested in the content of the show. Things like time-travel and polar bears on tropical islands are supposed to make you ask why, not wtf. I don't see how you've actually stuck through 4 seasons with that attitude. I mean the smoke monster was the main question of season 1 and you don't like it? If you like your fantasy shows to stay within the realm of reality than you really don't like fantasy shows. I think LOST is more popular than ever, despite any nielsen ratings, the true fans are more into it than ever after the premieres.
You know what? Just go watch Heroes. sigh

what did you want a simple story where the characters sat round waiting for a helicopter and catching fish....theyve created a interesting complex story that has never been so complelling. Theres alot more to lost than bloody polar bears....when i began watching lost i never imagined it would become the show its become today and thank goodness it has become what it is any other way and i probaly would of given up like all those other boring people who dont have the concentration to understand a show like this. Finnaly a show that doesnt spell everything out for you and actually manages to keep you on the edge of your seats. When i look back on series one i actuaaly think it was weak compared to seasons 3 and 4.

ok, I've taken all comments into consideration, and I get the fanatasy thing but here's the thing...
If any of you can even remember the press conference Abrams gave before they got Lost on tv which is on youtube, it promissed to be one hell of an alternative show, actually according to plot lines it was meant to be something to drive tv fans off the boring commercialism tv shows type such as E.R. or any of those other shows who keeps the entire show filming on a studio and goes on to 10 seasons...
So Lost was a promissing Tv Show and I still haven't stopped watching it, because J.J. Abrams is and I never said he wasn't a genious, not only for Lost but for his masterpiece Alias, but even genious make mistakes, but the part of what I said "was a.." it's meant to the fact that Lost is losing or has lost ratings at a really high speed. From 14,5 to 5,7 in 5 season is alot, X-Files kept their ratings just like they wanted, they always had the same ratings they had in the beggining.
Why? because people when read the plot lines, they knew what they were gonna watch, something about aliens and hidden fbi cases.
Now the mistake in this great work of J.J. Abrams was when he decided to hide the secrets of Lost.
People Decided it was going to be so "cool" to watch something so "different" and so it happened, but then most viewers who were hooked on Lost decided, this just isn't what the plot lines that I read or that I was waiting for...
and for starters, you don't go watch a movie and see something you don't understand like polar bears in jungle and say "oh, a polar bear in the jungle, let's see how it got there."
No, you just don't think that in the first place, the first thought to your mind is analyzing the scene and it tells you: this is wrong - there should not be a polar bear in a jungle.
And to end my comment, J.J. Abrams as the genious mind that he is for bringing a television revolution to our times, he more than anyone else should know that the writer's strike was coming and that if he was interested in the the show that he alone created, he would grab a laptop and continue the script, just the way he did for Alias.
