Tv Season Info

The highly-anticipated sixth series concludes this enigmatic time-traveling series on two fronts: the story of survival, escape and understanding among multiple factions on the island; and an intriguing "flash sideways" to present-day Los Angeles in which Oceanic flight 815 never crashed. The latter is highlighted by Ben (Michael Emerson) and Locke (Terry O'Quinn) as schoolteachers; Sawyer (Josh Holloway) as a cop; Jack (Matthew Fox) as a father; Kate's (Evangeline Lilly) flight from the law; the return of Libby (Cynthia Watros) in a touching episode with Hurley (Jorge Garcia); and, ultimately, two unexpected characters on a scrambling mission to round up passengers from the flight. On the island, revelations are made about Locke's dark and destructive character, who wars with both Widmore's (Alan Dale) crew and the group led by Jack and Hurley, who look to carry out the all-important intentions of Jacob (Mark Pellegrino). Two of the most satisfying episodes feature flashbacks to the island's earliest days that provide long-sought background on Richard (Nestor Carbonell, in episode nine) and Jacob (episode 15). By the moving finale, not every piece to the six-year puzzle fits neatly into place, but series die-hards are hard-pressed to leave without an emotional appreciation for the exhilarating ride.

Critic Reviews for Lost: Season 6

All Critics (34) | Top Critics (16)

Lost crashed, and crashed hard... This season wasn't a long con. It was a weak trick.

October 24, 2019 | Full Review…

So I've given it another day to sink in, and I'm still profoundly irritated by that ending. It rendered this whole season of Lost pretty silly. And it barely made sense on its own terms.

Top Critic

Satisfying in a sentimental way, the eagerly anticipated finale was neither as challenging as the series at its best, nor as convoluted as the series at its most frustrating. And it left enough questions to keep the watercooler humming for weeks.

October 23, 2019 | Full Review…

The series, which started with so much promise, stalled some time in its third season and will now be remembered as a monstrosity that fused kitsch to camp.

Top Critic

Certainly it was more rewarding than The Sopranos and Seinfeld, both of which didn't end so much as stop, and we're grateful the writers didn't go the the route of Newhart or St. Elsewhere.

March 6, 2018 | Full Review…

The richest fantasy series I've seen. But its wrap-up sixth season is a drag: This spidery metaphysical puzzle seems to be dwindling down to a hokey primordial myth of good and evil.
