I've loved "Lost" since halfway through the first season (never seen the pilot BTW). I've delved into the mythology and talked over the water cooler with friends about every little nuance.
Since I've never written about it here, I'm not going to start now. And I'm not going to give away anything. But let me say this: for all the terrific acting in the finale, the moments where my wife and I teared up (more than once), it was Michael Giacchino's musical score that really hit a grand slam. For most of the six seasons, his minimalist score echoed the uncertainty of the story, the mysteries, the unknown. Tonight, as things fell into places and characters had their "enlightenment," his music soared with a lush beauty that propelled the story forward. I absolutely loved the music tonight.
Bravo, Mr. Giacchino!
