I would agree with you. Except that the Lost producers had the difficult task of having to stretch the show out over 100+ episodes. TD only had ten. They were throwing things in there that they knew would go unresolved.

The actors made the show.

But my problem with the ending is not so much the loose threads but it feels not true to character. Doesn't feel like the light is winning. They didn't get their man. They got one lone nut, but the conspiracy goes on. There is a whole bunch of powerful evil people still out there doing their thing. If anything, cohle should be even more depressed at the end.

Completely agree.
The ending felt like a cop-out by the writers.

Only girly-men push The Red Button.

I didn't feel cheated in any way. The worst part was the revenge sex segment.
