Here's what I wrote about Lost the day after the finale:

I am one of those infuriated by the Lost finale. It is not because I do not understand it, or "get" it, or grok it. It is not because I was watching the show for the "wrong reasons." It is not because I require an answer to every single little mystery.

However, I do think the mysteries on the Island were important, and that they deserved much more attention than some hand-waving as ill-conceived hokum. I feel that the flash-sideways and the culmination there were trite, sappy, and robbed all the emotional power of the various sacrifices made. It was fanservice for a very specific type of fan. I am not that type of fan. Spoilers. )

And my further thoughts concerning the flash-sideways resolution:

Spoilers like whoa. )
