Lost: The Complete Sixth and Final Season DVD ReviewEric English
For those unfamiliar with the series, its really worth starting from the beginning. Being deeply invested with the characters and wildly shifting plot arcs is necessary for a true appreciation of the kind of television history being presented here. Its almost impossible to pick up this DVD set without knowing how the it all began, where it all went, and know who exactly to root for (the end result will surprise even the most seasoned veterans of the series)
If you've stuck it out this long you know the characters, you know their motivations (mostly) but you probably still have questions. It get even more convoluted in the season 5 finale. Without revealing too many spoilers, the "flashback" and "flash forward" focus of the series become somewhat of a "flash sideways." Characters have different perspectives and much is invested in the dynamic between good and evil on the island. This is a theme that was presented very early on with Locke and Walt playing the board game backgammon and Locke explaining "that there are two sides, one black, one white"
The overarching theme of this season, and the series, is that some of the people who crashed on the island are the candidates to take "overseeing" the island. It might be heaven, it might be purgatory, it might be hell. If you've watched it this long, (and if you are reading this review before watching it... stop now.............. you have your chance....)
You probably won't be surprised they are already dead. The last episode "The End" is all about how people found purpose when, in their afterlife, future life, or sideways life, had none. Jacks final sacrifice is for himself. The Dharma initiative, the others, its all irrelevant. It was all about the relationships of the people on the island in their past, their present, and the afterlife. There may never be a television show as ambitious as this...and that is ok. It was terrifically acted, produced, and written for 6 years of great television. Recommended.
