Lost: Series Finale
"Through the run of the series, there was much talk among its characters of being on the island for a purpose. As it draws to a close, "Lost" has sustained the eerie feeling (eerie for TV, anyway) that it was on the air for a purpose — a special purpose beyond selling products and filling time, or even entertainment.

Ummm, gimme a break.
I've watched it from the start. They have thrown in lots of mysteries and I wanted to see the answers, which weren't provided in the finale. I think after awhile the fans continue to watch because of the characters and the mysteries become less important.
The finale was not what I was thinking it would be, and was a bit of a letdown. However it wasn't nearly as bad as it could have been. I think it was important for the characters to come together and put all of the turmoil behind them, and at least they did that.
My feeling has always been that the creators didn't know how popular the show would be or how long it would run, so once it became a hit then they had to make up story lines and figure out how to make a lot more show out of it than they first had in mind.
What a great ending! Everyone dies.
No, the creators always had in mind for the series to run as long as it did, which is why they ended it while ratings were still really high. Most shows in the US don't do that, and try to milk something for all it's worth 'til everyone hates it. For example: Family Guy.
