Can you believe it's been six months since Jack's eye closed for the final time? There are a ton of people watching the show on DVD who have yet to experience the finale, and some who have just experienced it recently, but for the rest of us, we've had six months to ponder the meaning of Lost, and discuss possible answers to all those unanswered questions.

What do you think of the series now? The night of the finale, I posted a poll to get an idea of what people thought of the series overall. Forty-four percent thought it was the best show they'd ever seen, compared to 53% just one week later. Twenty-six percent said it was a really great show, with 24% saying the same the following week. Two percent hated it at first, but that number fell to just 1% by the next week. Just one month later, 57% thought it was the best show ever with 29% saying it was a great show. No one said they hated it, but to be fair, those who hated it probably didn't stick around to talk more Lost.

And without much to add, this site will be archived in the next month or so. It will still be here (hopefully forever) as a reference, but I won't be adding to it. <Sigh> Why couldn't Lost have just lasted forever? Well, because it needed an ending. All good things must come to an end. <Super big sigh>

I’m wistful and nostalgic. The site was a wonderful experience and I will miss it. Kudos, Bonnie, on your fine work.

Muchas gracias. Merci beaucoup. I can’t think of enough ways to say, “Thanks a lot!”

With best regards,
Claude

Nooooo! Why does the site close? I hoped it would stay around for a few years…

Anyway, I’ve now upped my rating to “Best show ever”, although I think Lost shares that title with some other shows (Battlestar Galactica for instance).

Bonnie, why don’t you start your own L O S T fan page? not much too it, but at least we could all keep going and reading. I believe if all the regulars on here showed our support for you to do this, maybe it will happen??? I certainly hope so.

So far you have my vote!!!

Hi everyone,

Speaking of my previous comment about Bonnie creating a website after this one is archived. I have taken the liberty of creating a basic L O S T fan page myself. Please everyone who is a regular on here, i strongly encourage you to visit this website. Post comments, photos, videos any kind of feedback you wish. Let’s keep this new site going long and going strong.

losties4life.webs.com

Thank you everyone!

D.Dude, so in less than 15 minutes you come up with a web site with a cool lost graphic….man you are so far beyond me, I guess that makes me “lost”. But you- Dharma Dude- you are the “Dude” and I am lost in 8 tract technology.

You are all so awesome! Who’d a thunk that six months later you’d all still be here?

Sorry meanjean, i must have read it wrong. Well i certainly hope you join as a member to the new site. So far Bonnie and Cyn have joined, I hope all the other regulars on here follow. I need at least 10 members to keep it going. Plus Bonnie just posted our first discussion topic!
