Lost Series Wrap up???

Well, there were a variety of ways to take this series e.g. the island with the hatches was actually a buried alien space ship, whatever, the sky was the limit. I distinctly remember saying after the first several episodes,"If this just ends up that they were killed in the crash all along I'm really going to be pissed!" Well guess what? Working Ben Linus and crew into this concept was haphazard at best. This was supposed to be a series with a specific shelf life from the get go, so the writers should have carefully cast the thing in concrete; however, it's obvious they instead took a lot of rabbit trails while thinking/writing on the fly until they painted themselves into a corner and threw together an ending usually expected for wrapping up a canceled show. If this wasn't enough, their arrogance during the commentary show in stating that they somehow "changed television" is galling. Changed whaaat? Are you kidding me? It's hard to accept their praises to the fan base when most folks had to suffer thru 45 min. of commercials on regular TV to see the big letdown.

I feel cheep and used and am therefor going into the shower to scrub until all of the hot water runs out!

Yeah the 45 min of commercials was terrible.
But I think you missed the point, they didnt all die in the crash.

You don't seem to understand the end. They didn't all die in the plane crash. Everything that happened on the Island happened. The Flash Sideways was the only "Purgatory" like world, and one they created so that they could all let go and move on together. Some died in the series, some died years later after Jack lays in the bamboo and dies, but in the end they all found their way back to each other.
I personally loved the idea of Hugo running the Island, being the new Jacob, with Ben as his Number 2, and this was confirmed by them saying so in the "Flash Sideways/Purgatory". The image of the plane wreckage at the end was just Lost's "Full Cirlce" symbology. It wasn't that they all died, it was a symbol, a monument left on the island, representing the survivors and what happened there.
