This year, two shows that I’ve watched from the beginning — Lost and 24 — have come to their ends. Not to the end of their season, but to the end of their entire series. Lost ended at season 6 with a pretty good wrap up, and 24 ended at their 8th season with some loose ends. I will miss these shows greatly…
Lost: This show is pretty famous in Korea, because one of the main characters, Jin Kwon, is Korean. The first four or so seasons were really good; it had very engaging storylines with great writing. I started to lose interest in it after more and more mythology was introduced in the show, it made the series really unrealistic. Not that that was a bad thing, but I was just…disappointed. The last episode was very good, it was a good summary and wrap up of the causes behind almost everything. It may not have been as interesting as some people were expecting, but the final scene was brilliant and that alone was good enough for me.
24: Now on the other hand, 24 is a show I truly love, and have loved ever since the first episode. My previous blog post is about 24, so read that one for specifics about the show. The final season focuses more on personal revenge, and Jack goes rogue after about the first half of the season. I can’t write more about it because of spoilers, but as always, every episode keeps me wanting for more. The final episode of the entire series was very good. It may not have served as a good enough episode for the Series finale, but it was definitely perfect as a season finale.
————————There will also be a feature film about 24 to be released in the future, and it has been confirmed it will NOT be a prologue. So I hope it will be an epilogue..
