    Why don't you whip out an ending nobody has thought of before you.

    You are, indeed, not a screenwriter, but you just make it sound so easy to write an ending. All I'm saying is, don't pretend to be better than they are unless you can do better than them.

    This. I would say that even the premise of LOST itself is not new and it never pretends to not be influenced by others. Mythologies, concepts and names were borrowed from every source possible. The only thing unique (at least for me) are the character arcs and how the writers tell their stories.

    On another forum, some people suggested to have the ending set at LAX rather than the church - that, I can appreciate and get on board with. I even mentioned that they could have Jack there to collect his father's coffin and the ending would make better sense. But I honestly don't like the endings suggested by the people on this board. To me, they are neither fresh nor more interesting ideas themselves but different strokes for different folks. Naturally the posters think theirs are much better. I don't get why they discount others' opinion as stupid or whatever - both pro and con opinion have merits and we can agree to disagree.

    To answer the OP though, Passengers comes into mind - very different yet somehow similar.

    You've seen this ending before from multiple places. Probably the most direct influence is the wonderful film "Jacobs Ladder."

    you know what,i am better than they are.i can see and admit everytyime i screw something up.if the producers game is deception than they did a great job,if it's making a great show than they screwed up the last season.this last season is a huge game changer in terms of how the show attempts to aproach the mystery.

    I don't mean to be unnecessarily rude here, but, honestly, if you think you're better than them only because you thought you got screwed by the ending of a TV show, then I don't think I need to waste anymore time reading whatever you have to say.


    Get a life.
