It's funny how people think that but the only time they were ever dead was the flash sideways in season 6, hell they even had Jacks father basically say the whole other season were real life but that sideways flash was the afterlife, they couldn't make that any more obvious.
Jack was always the main character and in the end I liked how his life played out, everyone else along the way had an awesome story to tell as well. They could of shot off in so many directions but I liked how they finished it.
Also the end credits with the smashed up plane, I know that confused a ton of people. I think it was actually ABC who put those scenes in on the credits so it wasn't just cut to black with the normal credits. I didn't like the crash credits at the end.
It's one of my fav shows of all time. Right up there with the X-Files and Twin Peaks.
Not everything about season 6 was great (zombie-Sayid, the episode Across the Sea) but the ending was amazing. Fuck the haters!
Fuck all them hatin bitchezzzz
Cracked has a bunch of great articles on lost.
It isn't really that difficult of a show. Just more difficult than most. They crashed on the island. The island is the source of spacetime. Limbo was created by the people trapped on the island. Time is all created at once and needs events to hold it together. Stuff like that.
Spoiler tag mother fuckers :P
Some of us are late to the Lost party haha
