Shortly after the finale of Lost, I wrote up some lengthy notes regarding how I felt about the show and its final season.  I then put those notes aside to give myself some time to read comments from friends, fans, and critics alike.   During that time, I thought a lot about why many people were unhappy with the final episode of Lost, whereas I enjoyed it and many of the reviews from mainstream critics were pretty favorable.  A month later, here are my thoughts about Lost and the divisive choices the producers made about the mysteries of the show.

[FYI for those who haven't seen all of Lost yet: there are a couple of veiled spoilers below, and one (marked) paragraph with some actual spoilers, but I'm mostly writing about the design of the show and its attitude towards mysteries, rather than specifics of the story.]
