Everything I want from Lost is in 24. This last week's episode of 24 was perhaps the best ever. They resolved a ton. I actually know the answers to questions I've been asking and then in the last 30 seconds, they reveal a much, much bigger mystery. Oh baby!
Lost, however, revealed tons in two story lines, and yet I really don't know anything new, and in the last 30 seconds creeped me out second only to Walt being taken off the boat. It really is funny that Henry Gale's story line was really pushing toward Purgatory (Shaun Grove's suggestion) and Dave's story line was really pushing for either all in Hurley's head or psychological experiment (Julie's suggestion). It really has a feel to me of their playing with us.
The problem with resolving a Lost is that the resolution can never be as satisfying as the mystery. 24 knows better than to hold out a mystery too long.
