Elegant Scaffolding is Not a Crowd-Pleaser

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook or have had the chance to sit with me in a diner recently, you know that I am not happy with the conclusion of the TV series Lost. I found the pink ribbon, ecumenical, cheesefest that was the series finale to be VERY UNSATISFYING. Not only did it rip off the Six Feet Under finale with the whole, “we all die at some point” BS, but it completely sidestepped the plot that had driven the show for its entire run. All of season 6 was a waste and I wish that it had all ended with Juliet hitting the nuke.  To ignore the elegant scaffold that they had built so meticulously, is a narrative crime.
