I am beginning to become certain of something I'd previously only suspected: LOST was a once in a lifetime kind of thing.
And, while it was just a TV show ... it makes me sad.

Because of how I feel about the show, I'll take emotion out of it. I'll simply disagree completely. While the first half of Season Six dragged, the finale more than made up for it. The only questions left unanswered were questions that were either (a.) not important in the grand scheme of things, (b.) things that were intentionally unanswered for artistic effect, or (c.) things that were answered (but were easily missed unless you're a loser and watch the show a half dozen times per episode as I did).
I'm sorry LOST was one of the worst finished shows ever. Nothing was answered and the last season was the worse. The writing diminished after season three and I am shocked that more people aren't angry that it ended with so little closure.
Seasons Four and Five, setting aside Six, were brilliantly-written - but the show became a very different show after Season Three, so I could understand it becoming not someone's cup of tea (my wife, for example, loved the first three seasons, and then stopped watching after Season Four).

I'm a huge Walking Dead fan.
I was never a big fan of lost. I could just never get into it. But if you are looking for good TV shows I recommend Sons of Anarchy, The Walking Dead, and Game of Thrones (Best show on TV).
...which emphasizes my point: the fact that LOST could be as good as it was on a network for 20 episode seasons (slightly less in the later years) is incredible. Seeing new shows only underscores that for me - even the good ones, because none of them are on ABC/NBC/CBS/FOX.

The old one or the new one? I'll put it on my Netflix-ing list.
You've really gotta give Battlestar Gallactica a shot. It's not what I expected (or had feared). It's a pretty amazing show, with plenty of depth/mystery to catch the attention of you Lost dorks. The show starts off with a 3-hour miniseries and evolves into 4 regular seasons from there. I'd be shocked if you weren't hooked by the end of the miniseries.
