Brilliant ending, worth getting only 4 hours sleep for

Support Desk: Good morning, Magical Island Support Hotline
Jacob: Hello, my Mum gave me this magical island to look after, and it's got black smoke coming out of it that's killing people
Support Desk: Have you tried turning it off and on again?
Jacob: Let me try. . . . . . . .
Jacob: Thanks, worked a treat!

I did thoroughly enjoy the whole thing and as a grown man in his late thirties the glowey love bubbles of realisation brought a tear to my eye at least three times

The more I think about this the more underwhelmed I am. All the island stuff, if it did happen, was just about Jacob's brother trying to get off the island. That's it. Nothing else lead anywhere. All the rest, the Dharma stuff, the Others stuff, the time travelling, people trying to get on/and/or off/ the island and even what exactly the island was and meant was in the end utterly direction less and had no bearing on the ending whatsoever.
I don't mind some things being left open ended, but leaving everything open ended?? Explaining nothing?? Please.


Note to sci-fi writers: can we have a show that doesn't end with people moving on please? Thank you

HHhhmmm. Still not sure about this. I was loving it up until the final twist, think I'll have to watch it again. The final scene was great though.
