For some, the series finale of ABC’s LOST is still an oozing source of anger. This guy makes all other pissed off LOST guys look Island agnostic.
“A lot of people invested a lot of time and energy in following LOST over the years. I was one of those people. A lot of people were satisfied with the way the series ended. I was not one of those people.”

The LOST Revised Project, a so-far anonymous fan boy initiative to erase all of the “Alt-Sideways” universe from the series’ final season, has begun to do just that. Launched just this week, episodes 1 & 2 have already been posted to the site, with promises of an alt-reality episode 3 to follow soon.
In a lengthy explanatory blog post, the site’s creator described the story arch of the sixth season (when it came to alt-sideways) as a cliched gimmick. “The entire conceit of the sideways world was to bring all of our heroes together again in the afterlife – one of the most cliched storytelling devices there is. Sure, there was a spin on it, but the whole idea that “there is no now” in the afterlife came across more as a cheat than a genuinely interesting twist.”
