Status: Deceased?

Lydia gets poisoned in "Felina" and will die soon afterwards but technically she doesn't die during the course of the show. Am I the only one that thinks her status shouldn't be "deceased"? Is there a term for "about to die" that could be used here?

Lost wasnt that bad. I was more pissed about them all being in the afterlife the whole time. I don't think they couldve explained the smoke monster any mroe than they did. He was evil incarnate - i saw it as a sort of Cain and Abel story. Cain kills Abel because God loves him more (or in this case their mom loved Abel more). Abel drinks from the river of youth while Cain slides down it and is transformed into evil incarnate by the smoke monsters core. Obviously your never going to get any scientific explanation behind that -

but there's no mystery behind it. JJ just left some stuff open to interpretation. That's very common in philosophical and psychological fiction. You want the viewer to come to their own conclusion on some aspects. If you watch an anime called 'Serial Experiments Lain' you will have a helluva lot more unanswered questions. In fact you might not even know what the hell is goin on

Off topic now but I hope you mean Season 6 because they were not dead the whole series.  Also, J.J. left the show after getting it started.  He had nothing to do with the ending or anything passed the intial concept and pilot, if I remember correctly, that would be Damon Lindeloff along with Carlton Cuse from Season 2 on.

Nope. Problem was in J.J. Abrams original end to the prequel. Both Lindeloff and Cuse claimed that they've kept that original end, when it was just end to prequel, instead make their own ending which was more logical thing to do because story overgrow that prequel years ago. They've should drop J.J. Abrams ideas and think of something new, instead ruining the show.

"However, this was before Katzenberg knew where the “Breaking Bad” creative team were taking the storyline, which meant his idea was a non-starter."

The only thing that was said to be known about the ending of Lost was that it ended with Jack's eye closing in the forest where he started according to Fox himself.  Not gonna search out the article cause this is a Breaking Bad page and Lostpedia can answer all this.  It's also been reported that the Jack character was suppose to die in the pilot originally at the end with Kate becoming the leader so there were obviously a lot of ideas flying around at the early parts of making the show...but and answers, explantions, time travel, MIB vs Jacob facts...all Damon and Carlton.

No, there is lot more then that. Damon always praised about that ending and that series was always concepted around that pilot. First, they made it Lost as self contained with that pilot, because they didn't know there would be more. Pilot was like a movie. Then, they expanded it onto Season 1. Then, on season 2. They where always just expanded it around that same ending where everyone were dead and in purgatory and everything else they add to the story (hatch, others, time travels, man in black...) everything ended the same no matter where story go around.

Hmmm that 75mil Katzenberg was offering is close to Walt's stack size.....

The producers themselves would have to break bad to bring this back...

yeah the money

It would figure that Jack and Lydia had amassed mucho dinero.

When Todd and Jack and Kenny drove away from the diner with the Methlamine tank trailer, it appeared to be about 2/3 full. If Walt was correct stating that they were running low, they musta made a lot of crystal blue.

Following the money would be a good starting point to continue the story, Jesse has none, Lydia has some time to make arrangments for hers.

That $75M looks like a big number (what, 6 barrels of cash?), but it's chump chnage to Hollywood.  Katzenberg just this year plowed $250M into that stinker "Rise of the Guardians" (Never heard of it?  Guess why it lost so much money) so gettig a guaranteed hit for just $75M is an easy call.
