We watched Lost on ABC this evening.  We've been watching since the beginning, and are still trying to figure out what the heck is going on .I could have become frustrated and just quit watching rather than trying to figure out what is going on, but that is not how I roll.   It's been an interesting ride, but I am glad that the show is ending.  A show like Lost needs some sort of ending rather than being dragged on for years after anyone is left interested. 

I have been reading a few blogs about the show, to help me figure out the puzzles.  The Man in Black and Jacob don't seem to be definitely good or definitely evil.  There is a murkiness about both of these characters, although the viewing audience very definitely appears to see Jacob as 'good'.  But his 'goodness' only extends to doing what he has to do for his island.  Toward that end Jacob appears to be willing to meddle in the lives of others that he deems to be "candidates". 

Jack has always been my favorite character on the show, and I am glad to see that he has started heading in the right direction.  The first season showed Jack as a decisive leader, but he lost that in the other seasons when he was morally and spiritually bankrupt.  Now it appears that he has become a man of faith, as his 'duel' with Mr. Alpert demonstrated. This viewpoint seems to be opposite of what we saw of Jack in earlier seasons.  I am glad.  I like this version of  Shepherd.  I hope that they let him be strong again. 

I also liked Locke in his earlier incarnation, before he becomes a psycho hosebeast.  Locke is always sure of himself, even when he steps in the proverbial doo-doo.  I don't really care for Claire or Kate or some of the other characters, mainly because their stories don't seem to add anything to the mythos .But I could be wrong!
