Could somebody summarise the end of Lost
in a paragraph? I can't wade through the post on the green; it appears to be all reaction and not a lot of content. Assume the Wikipedia article doesn't do it for me. Take this summary of BSG (Spoiler!) as a benchmark:

Half the main characters were Cylons. We find out that this clash between man and machine and the ensuing voyage has happened again and again across the ages. BSG arrives at Earth in our prehistory. Starbuck turns out to be some sort of mysterious space angel. Head 6 and Head Gaius appear to be some higher form of supernatural being, possibly deities. All the events of the series appear to have been driven by them for some mysterious divine purpose. The Cylon-hybrid kid turns out to be mitochondrial Eve, the mother of what we know as humanity. Many viewers thought the ending was a deus ex machina cop-out.
Apologies if Lost is complicated enough for this not to be possible. Please don't take this post as some sort of disrespect for the show - I've enjoyed it when I watched it, and I will watch it all eventually.
