Last "Lost", At Last
Mark your calendars and set your TiVos: on February 2nd, the final season begins of Lost, a TV program that we look upon, in all seriousness, as a non-fiction documentary and a training film, not fiction.
Despite assurances from J.J. Abrams years ago that the show would not, in the end, leave dangling plotpoints and unanswered questions, it seems to me that such will be the case. There's just too much going on, on multiple layers, dimensions, and time tracks, to ever tie up all the loose ends. And that's OK. In reality, loose ends are never truly tied up, no matter how much they may appear to be.
