LOST Has Found Its Way!

ABC announced its plan to bring LOST to its final end in 2010 with a self-proclaimed "highly anticipated and shocking" finale. Over the next three years the 48 remaining episodes will be broken up into uninterupted 16-episode runs beginning with the 2007-2008 season.

Thank goodness. Now that they know when they're going to end, they can start building towards a resolution and actually develop the story again, instead of floundering around and stalling for time with useless plot derivations and new character introductions.

This announcement breathes new excitement and life into a series that has clearly Lost its magic, and gives us former diehard Lost Fans something to hope for and look forward to again. Now they'll be forced to give us answers and have every new plot development mean something to the overall progression and eventual conclusion of this intriquing story. I'm excited! I just hope some crazy contract things don't happen with the cast members that makes them start dropping out of the island like flies. There'd be no point to finish out the series without its signature Jack, Kate, Sawyer, Hurley, Jin, Sun, Locke, Sayid, Claire and Charlie. The rest can "die" a contractual death...especially the new characters like Juliet. So over the Elizabeth Mitchell of it all...

I wouldn't count on anything so decisive. The dharma project is about a time machine which is why they had the one guy entering the numbers every 108 minutes. It helped them know if the timeline has changed.

The plots are going to get more confusing, not more concise. It will start being sci fi, only dumbed down so you non sci fi folk can understand it.
