The final season of Lost is my favorite
The final season of Lost is my favorite... and here's why
WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD! IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE FINALE OF LOST AND DON'T WANT IT BEING SPOILED, READ NO FURTHER!
Okay, now that's out of the way, I can say this: the show had a great narrative, incredible characters, and it was without a doubt the most unique show on television, maybe ever. If you've not seen an episode of the show yet, I urge you to buy it on DVD or Blu-Ray, and watch the entire series from start to finish. I promise you won't be disappointed.
I'm not going to lie. I cried like a baby during the last few minutes of the finale. I'm not sure if it was because of what happened or because I was sad that there would be no more new episodes of the show. Probably a combination of the two.

Lost: The Complete Series - Prepare to be blown away!
This is really the best way to watch the series: from start to finish! If you tried to watch an episode here and an episode there, you'd get Lost pretty quickly. See what I did there?
Calling this show "one of the greatest ever" doesn't really do it justice. It was so much more than that! It made you laugh, it made you cry, and more importantly, it made you think.
This show sparked conversations around office water coolers from 2004 until it ended in 2010.
The title of the show wasn't so much about where they were physically
It was more about their souls being lost
The island represented a type of purgatory, where all the inhabitants came to meet and resolve their countless issues.
You had Jack (Matthew Fox) the troubled surgeon who was for all intents and purposes the central character in the show and the de facto leader of the survivors. Then there was Kate, the fugitive, played by the lovely Evangeline Lilly. You also had Hurley, the unlucky lottery winner, who was played by Jorge Garcia. Josh Holloway played Sawyer, the con man, and the character everybody loved to hate.
There was Sayid (Naveen Andrews), the former member of the Iraqi Republican Guard, who got to torture quite a few people during the show's six year run.
Then there was the mysterious John Locke (Terry O'Quinn). The guy who was in a wheelchair up until the plane crashed on the island, but once he set foot on it, could suddenly walk again.
And there was Claire (Emilie de Ravin), who was pregnant when the plane crashed.
