The writers of Lost really didn't know what they were doing with the ending, didn't they. It's not that it's unclear what happens, it's just a mystery what kind of frankenstein's monster of a philosophical framework it's supposed to represent.

@Gargron Weren't they just making it up as they were going along? They didn't really have a full story, nor a cohesive plot to the whole series?

@Ertain @Gargron

Lost (and Alias before it) pioneered a new kind of long-form TV storytelling:

rolling dice before every episode and letting a very small ad-libs generator create the story

What surprises me is how long they were able to just keep doing this, and how much it pervaded all of Hollywood.
