    we know the story had to change for various reasons/casting over the years, and that multiple teases/hints by darlton in the early goings were also altered so they couldn't happen as they said. sometimes people paint them as LIES, when it may have been things they couldn't help/were out of their control.

    if anything IMO it's a sign that creators shouldn't talk to fans directly about anything while it's in production. not stuff that can be misconstrued or thrown back in their face. lots of 'fandom' interference in a lot of IPs these days from creators talking to their fragile fans.


    So finally after all these years you agree with it. See it wasn't that hard.

    Truth bomb drop rite there.

    Not really, as my reply kind of undoes this 'bomb' with reasons and why that might have happened. =)

    and if it IS a truth bomb from your point of view, he still says "sure the flash sideways is purgatory" LEAVING THAT THE RESULT OF THE SHOW lol. 'but it was probably originally intended to be the island' IS TRUE AND I AGREE WITH THAT AS I EXPLAINED, BUT THATS NOT WHAT THEY DID IN THE ENDING OF THE SHOW, WAS IT? lol.

    Yep, i do agree the end result the island wasn't "actual" purgatory. man, took YOU a while to come around too! ""





    seriously though if all we are doing is fake agreeing that the other guy actually agrees, what are we doing? =)

    just want to hear you admit it man, no smirks, no smileys. one more chance! if the joke is that you simply are trolling and want to disagree that's fine! but tell me if that's the situation because i am tired of... wasting like a couple minutes of typing the few times you reply. =)

    i think i big part of this show was that it came about really during the birth of social media. the writers were very much into that new wave of interaction with their fan base and i think a lot of that translated into the show as a result. as theyre writing the show they would also be getting instant feedback on the mysteries they were writing and would sometimes toy with fan theories while still trying to remain ambiguous. the end result being that it gave people a voice played out like an improv show on screen, but it also muddled the cannon.

    on a sidenote: whenever i get to rewatch im skipping the whole sideways purgatory throughout the last season. it serves no purpose other than being a cheap reunion ploy imo. the only person who really deserved that redemption afterlife story wouldve been michael. maybe it wouldve played out better if he just showed up and pulled up a seat near ben without saying a word after everyone goes inside. to exclude him kind of insinuates hes just condemned to be a jungle whisper for eternity.

    Admit what? The fact that the island was purgatory and the everyone figured it out early on so the writers said it wasn't even though it was and you can except that.

    It was pretty pathetic wasn't it? All the focus on Kate running away and doing so much stupid shit. I found it annoying for sure.
