There will be approximately 4,815,162,342 articles written on Lost in the next week, and I can't hope to keep up with even a small percentage of them. But I'll keep updating this post with links to a few pieces, primarily from the tried-and-true TV critics I'm familiar with who have been following it all along.
Pre-finale, Myles McNutt reflected on reviewing Lost, Jace Lacob said goodbye, Eric Deggans offered fandom reflections, and Todd VanDerWerff ranked every pre-finale episode.
Reviews of the finale from Myles McNutt, Eric Deggans, Ryan McGee, Cory Barker, Noel Kirkpatrick, Todd VanDerWerff, Noel Murray, Linda Holmes, Alan Sepinwall, James Poniewozik, Christopher Rosen, Maureen Ryan, Ken Tucker, Jace Lacob, Matt Roush, Matthew Gilbert, Jason Mittell, Drew McWeeny, Emily Nussbaum, Laura Miller, Instant Dharma, Jeff Jensen, Henry Stewart, Todd VanDerWerff.
Myles McNutt reviews some of the reviews, Metacritic has more review links, and TVtattle has more links and yet more links. Marjorie Sweeney considers the split fan reaction. Jason Mittell considers the questions and answers. James Poniewozik reconsiders season six. Emily Nussbaum says Lost seduced and then betrayed viewers.
Rick Paulas tries to answer some questions (and not with complete seriousness, thankfully). Bradley B. Onishi tackles Lost's religiosity. Diane Swayer talks to Cuse and Lindelof about the finale. Jonathan Gray tells Lost anti-fans to lay off for at least a day. The finale had more than 45 minutes of ads, 107 spots in total.
