LOST.

Finishing up in a week or so.

I have a lot of thoughts.

The short: It's a valid criticism to say it's a big mistake to craft a show so it has to be watched twice—and then very closely—to be understood; particularly when it's roughly 100 hours long.

But it also makes for a fascinating close watch the 2nd time.

It ... does, with the pretty big caveat that most of the characters are either ...

* Lying
* Or have believed a lie
* And there are very powerful entities who can take on many different forms

So it's very careful going. But yes, most of it holds.

Also there are the usual straight-up story mistakes that you'll get in 100 hours or so of TV.

Some things are just "yeah, that part doesn't fit."

But *far* fewer than I thought.
