Confession: I am a dedicated Target shopper.

“Lost”: Stick a fork in me, I’m done

Well, “Lost” is definitely over and done with. Too bad the ending wasn’t as enjoyable to watch as this:

Jeff freakin’ Probst!!! How awesome is that?

Anyway, I digress. I guess I’m trying to postpone expressing my feelings about the finale, which not surprisingly is polarizing “Lost” fans into separate camps: those who loved it versus those who thought it was a cop-out. But for now – maybe some distance will help – I’m erring on the “not-too-satisfied” side of things.
