For six long seasons, LOST writers kept us twisting in the wind — wondering what it all meant. Oh, they knew what it meant in season one. However, because the show started off so strong, the show’s producers extended the series by three seasons too long. If LOST would have stuck to its original plan of a few seasons (and kept the storyline mean and lean), it could’ve been one of the greatest shows on TV. Instead, the bloated run gave us polar bears, mystery hatches, and smoke monsters that never summed up to anything. A lot of us wasted six years on this plodding mess.
