    I love, love, love Season 1-5 of LOST. Season 6 is definitely a disappointment on a lot of levels, but it also answers all the big questions of the show so it's definitely worth watching. Just lower your expectations :ouch:

    I liked it. And, honestly.... form your own opinion by watching. Never watch or not watch something simply because of what others say.

    It's certainly bot what a lot of fans expected for the show's final season, but I thoroughly enjoyed the "sideways" turn it makes and I think the payoff is worthwhile.

    Plus, it managed to do something I didn't think possible: It managed to make me like Jack for the first time since Boone died.

    I really enjoyed it; yes, some things get answered and some things don't. But I enjoyed the ride just the same.

    I can't imagine seeing Lost 1-5 but not ever seeing 6, myself. I understand some viewers' frustrations with it, but I also think it has some of the better episodes of the series.

    If you've made it up to five, then yeah, I'd finish it off. It does answer some questions.

    I enjoyed Season 6 just as much as the rest of the series. If you enjoyed Seasonset 1-5, then I would recommend watching Season 6.

    If you're paying attention, it answers 90% of the questions about the show. All the important ones.

    You should for sure finish the show. However, watching it in real time through it's run and the drama the creative team put out about how it would wrap was disappointing. The fandom figured it out years ahead but they insisted it was something else, it wasn't. I owned all 5 seasons. I did not buy season 6 and sold the 5 I had. It's one sic-fi show I've fully divested myself of and don't care to ever rewatch.

    I'm sorry but you are incorrect on this. The writers added the "fan speculation" part because of the speculation and it wasn't what people were actually thinking it was. (I'm sure that's a confusing sentence.)
    Season 6 is a lot of fun and answers all the important questions while providing enough background to allow you to speculate on the rest. It also pulls a couple of twists that you just don't see coming. Finally the sense of closure to the series was very satisfying for me.
    Fans criticisms tend to be similar to the ones people have about nuBSG. By the time you finish season 5, you know it's a fantasy show so just don't expect any "real world" explanations for the events.

    Season 6 is disappointing and the weakest season, but it's entertaining enough and gives a lot of background information about the first five seasons. You should finish it.

    @Captain Craig
    If you're talking about the theory I think you're thinking about, that's a misconception based on a misreading of one line in the final scene. Only certain scenes in the last season apply to that theory.

    FWIW I think Lost's ending wasn't nearly as disappointing as NuBSG's.

    It's flawed, but the series finale is only one of two that's ever made me cry (the other being DS9's) so... yes IMO.

    "Moving On" on the soundtrack chokes me up every time I listen to it. :wah:

    I wasted something like 90 hours of my life watching Lost but that could be said of most television and so it's only a small percentage of the total wastage.

    If you've watched 1-5 I'd recommend 6. It's not great, but it does answer a lot of questions. I liked Lost, but I found it's not a fun show to re-watch, like Babylon 5. The fun of Lost to me was the mystery, and the episodes always ended with a cliff hanger, but once you know what's coming it's not so much fun any more.

    There were some good things about it but overall I felt the arc of the final season felt like they tried to cram too much into too few episodes, a couple certain things they prophetically teased for over a year didn't leave up to hype, and what really pissed me off was it turned out
    God did everything.

    As for Lost season 6, the overall arc was weak but there were some fantastic episodes. Like, there were full episodes for Richard and Jacob's origin stories.

    I've heard that some folks weren't too thrilled with the Jacob episode, but I believe pretty much everyone loves the Richard episode, and if nothing else I thought the music in the latter was great. I think that pushed me toward picking up the soundtracks.
