Default Where do you rank Lost amongst other GOAT tier shows?

I watched all of LOST when it originally aired, but I was a kid. Now that I've watched The Wire, BB, Sopranos, GOT, S1 of True Detective, I can appreciate Lost a lot more. I've began rewatching it and every episode is just so magnificent.

Its my fav show ever.

But Id say top 10 all time if I was objective.

No show is perfect and Lost had many flaws.

So now that you've watched a bunch of infinitely better shows you appreciate it more?

When it aired I watched up until the timer thing in the hatch..
Anytime I saw bits of an episode after that they were in a city or back on the island or something, completely lost interest in it..
From what I hear the ending is lame also

there was never going to be a "great" ending. i put it in quotation marks because there is simply no ending that could possibly satisfy the masses. the greatest thing about the show was the journey itself, from episode one to the final episodes. every single episode has more substance than most shows do their entire lifespan.

I don't have Lost at the top of my list for GOAT drama shows, but it's one of the few I was "meh" on where I can understand why you'd love it so much. The journey itself was definitely awesome, but I do think Lindelof is the poster boy for making crap up as he goes along and just throwing a bunch of crap at the wall. S4/S5 I was bored to tears, then the time travel arc... just not my type of thing.

The buildup/suspense was the best part of the show; if people watch it looking for "all the answers" (or, tbh, even semi-satisfying answers...) then they will never get that. Which is part of why the earlier seasons are almost universally considered its strongest. Lost had a ton of flaws that its defenders like to just hand-wave away which makes people over-hate it. It was still a great show and the first of "its kind". It paved the way for a lot of shows and you can see traces of it in a lot of shows that came after it.

But yeah, my Wire/BB nut-riding pisses my Lost-loving friends off more than anything. Hot take, True Detective S1 was mediocre story and writing-wise, and was carried by top-shelf acting/directing.

Have you seen Deadwood? Noticed it wasn't on your list. Not trying to hijack your thread, I just wanted to mention it if you hadn't seen it. I really think you'd like it. Has that HBO production, and stood the test of time when I rewatched it
