Its season finale time! All of the major shows that run on a fall-spring basis have begun closing down shop for the summer, leaving us with 2-3 months of wondering what will happen to our favorite characters.
Of the many season finales I've watched in the past weeks, none got to me as much as Lost and Grey's Anatomy did.
Say what you want about the shows, but those were some damn good four hours of television.
I'll begin with Lost. Lost is a show that I used to make fun of, simply because I didn't have the patience to deal with so many unanswered questions. Yet, this season I decided to give it a chance - it played either before or after another show I liked to watch (Life on Mars. Was great, but the ending left me with mixed feelings) so I figured I'll stick around and see what all the hype was about. I thought that since Lost was entering its fifth season and already had a locked fan-base that I wasn't apart of, I wouldn't get into it.
Boy was I wrong.
Week after week I watched and slowly got dragged under. So much so, that during the season's ending, I was at the edge of my seat. As a nifty bonus, there was the prospect of the nature of time through out the season. Anyways, here are the final scenes:
I swear I had a fit when the screen flash to white. I can't believe I now have to wait till 2010 to see how everything wraps up, but in the mean time, I'll just have to catch up by watching the first four seasons.
As for Grey, I must say that throughout the ep I was rather bored. It was a fairly pleasant two hour ride with a few bumps, but nothing I thought was be too shocking. Izzy had went under the knife to remove a tumor in her brain, George joined the army, and so on. But then, in the last five minutes, it all shot to hell.
I completely didn't see this coming. And that double O seven scene - I just couldn't get it out of my head for days. I personally think that George is dead, but we'll see in the fall.
All in all, it was a well spent four hours. Nothing to do now but wait. Damn it.
