    I loved the actors, but the story line just got away from me.

    Indeed, but the story line was so good until the writers got LOST, that its possibly worth a revisit.

    I loved Lost but I feel like it wrapped up. Unless it’s a spin off or something, I’m hesitant

    Sage words indeed. A new series means a lot of time commitment and if the payoff is missing again...well.

    I wouldn't necessarily place the blame on the LOST writers. If you followed the BTS stuff like the podcasts, Lindelof and Cuse had a clear start and end point for the series and wanted to get to the end on their terms, but ABC made them drag the series out a season or two farther than they wanted to go simply due to the show's popularity. This created filler episodes (seasons really) and the creation of many potentially interesting story lines that were either never explored, or never followed through to completion. The writers were unsure how long they would have to be writing the series for so they created plenty of potential material, or 'made things up', as they went so they could circle back to them later if needed. ABC simply chose quantity over quality.

    I was and am a huge LOST fan and I'm intrigued by the idea of it coming back in some form. Map it out for something like 4 or 5 seasons and stick to the plan. Sounds like a job for the Duffer brothers.

    Bottom line is... If they reboot they have got to fix that original finale ending first. WORST ending to a series in the history of television ever.

    I think it could work but you would have to give it a different take. I thought most of the Island's mysteries/mythology were pretty well wrapped up by the end of the series anyway.

    I've heard that numerous times in the past, and to me it definitely shows in the way that a good portion of episodes were just used as filler. Heck, the entire SEASON where they went back in time...season 5???...seemed like filler, as when that season ended they were basically right back where they were when the previous season ended. So it was like they literally did an entire season as filler in the overall story.

    Like you, I'm a huge fan...and I don't even COMPLETELY hate the way it ended, though I know I'm in a minority in that respect. I also feel that if done correctly, with a very definitive map for a very specific number of episodes, that it could be pretty successful. That said, I have absolutely no idea what it would be about...would we be brining the same characters back? Would it be a new plane crashing on the island?

    The only filler\treading water episodes were really in season 2 and 3. Half way through season 3 ABC agreed to let Cuse and Lindelof end the show according to their plan.

    I think in all honesty it was 3 episodes wasted on them, the last episode we saw explained the pervious 2

    Funny how we never saw those scary spiders again!! Heh heh heh!

    Nikki and Paulo were prime examples of of the type of filler material they had to come up with when they were unsure of how long they had to play out the main plot. The fan reaction was so bad, that it helped to convince ABC to let the showrunners end the show when they wanted. Its a shame that a talent like Kiele Sanchez was wasted on that character. She's always been great in whatever she's in.
