    I have recently finished the first three seasons of the show, so I was wondering how the next three seasons (the second half) of the show would be. I figured this would be a nice way to figure it out.



    Which half of Lost is better, the first one (S1-S3) or the second (S4-S6)?

    I'd probably have to go with the first half as it had the better seasons overall.

    I just finished watching "The Shape of Things To Come." I love Season 4 a lot, but so far it seems that the characters have been taking the back seat and the most important thing is shock value.

    Well the second half felt more focused compared to the first half, but i'd say they were equally as good

    The only season from Lost that I don't love is season 2. It is in the first half, so I'd say the first half is worse. Other than that, they are both amazing

    The first half is better for sure, more originality, and less of the strange stuff.


    Ranking all 6 seasons best to worst, it would go:


    3-1-2-4-6-5

    I'm kinda surprised at the poll results so far because I was under the impression a lot of people disliked Season 3 until the end when it started turning around.


    As for me, the second half is definitely my favorite. The biggest draw for me is the answering of questions and cliffhangers. Seasons 4-6 have a ton of both while keeping the insanely good character development. I had so many 'wow' moments in that half that left me speechless.

    Seasons 1-3 are easily superior in my book. The character development and thematic undertones are far more complex and well-done. Season four is decent enough, but then things go down the toilet in seasons five and six, leading to the most underwhelming, stupid finale I've ever seen.

    I like both, but I'd go with 1-3 just because nothing beats season 1.

    To me the big difference is that the second part is where the show really went on to be a full on sci-fi show and that`s not a bad thing. The best episodes of the show is in that period imo.

    Season 1-3 are more character driven, that rely on mystery and asking qustuons, also 1-3 have more episodes which means that the writers could have a individual episode for each character. Seasons 4-6 are more story driven and changes the dynamic of how each season is told, also only a selected bunch of characters gets there own episodes, there are a lot episodes in 4-6 that don't have a central character but focus on everyone, also 4-6 are more sci-fi so if your in to that, anyway I prefer season 4-6 cause all the threads from 1-3 all start to make sense.

    I find it interesting that 1-3 has a lot more votes than 4-6, considering that Seasons 2 & 3 are so criticized. Then again, though, so are 5 & 6.


    My ranking would probably go like this, favourite to least favourite:


    3-4-1-2-5-6
