LOST Recap from a First-Time Viewer

Rate: 3 Flag

I never watched LOST till last night. But with all the hype, I felt compelled to tune in. I watched the first half-hour of the recap, then the last hour of the finale.

So, near as I can figure, this is the recap. Correct me if I’m wrong.

A plane crashes near a tropical island.

A bunch of extremely attractive and/or quirky people representing every race and ethnicity are stranded.

They fight.

They suffer.

They fall in love.

They triumph.

They have babies.

They enter in and out of time warps.

They battle evil and conquer the elements.

They somehow rebuild the plane that crashed and get it to fly, rescuing three stragglers at the last second. Something about battery power.

They reunite at some church.

A cute guy is left behind on the island, injured. Something about fire and water.

He dies.

He and his dad reunite at the church.

They cry a lot.

All the attractive and quirky people turn out to be dead.

They hug and cry, accompanied by a lot of cheesy music.

Then they smile and enter heaven.

Close enough?

With all due respect to my friends who are shell-shocked diehards. I feel your pain!
Thanks for saving me the trouble of watching six years of reruns. You have truly provided a segment of the population (like me) a public service.
pretty close, although the plane is not the same one that crashed. I'm a long-time fan of the show, but I must admit I was underwhelmed with the finale.
Oh! So how did they happen upon an intact plane on a deserted island? Or maybe I don't need to know . . .
Well, the plane was brought there by Benjamin's nemisis, Widmore, who Benjamin murdered two episodes ago...You don't really need to know!
i stopped watching a couple seasons ago when it hurt my head to follow the story anymore. i think your recap about sums it up, though i'd be guessing. ;;;
