Three years ago, on May 23, 2010, 13.5 million people tuned in for the series finale of "Lost."
After six seasons of barefooted Others, Dharma Initiative snacks (specifically ranch dressing), Saywer's zingers, smoke monsters, "Walt!" and flashing backward, forward and sideways, fans of the series -- which was run by Carlton Cuse and co-creator Damon Lindelof -- were hoping the "Lost" finale would answer their many questions.
What viewers got, though, was a happy ending wrapped in a bow: All of the major "Lost" characters, dead, in a church, lovingly embracing and "moving on" to the after-life.
But after watching the two-and-a-half-hour series finale, many "Lost" fans and critics were dissatisfied ... to say the least. Gawker's Max Read wrote the show "ended in the worst way possible"; Charlie Brooker of The Guardian said "the plot made less sense than a milk hammock"; and Jace Lacob of The Daily Beast noted that fans were "infuriated."
Now that we've had three years to think about the "Lost" finale, titled "The End," HuffPost TV asked fans to share their feelings on Twitter. Lindelof is not over the show, but are others still upset? Check out the slideshow below to find out.
