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.

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

I agree with others who disliked the ending. Felt like we could have easily gotten a little more closure with the whole conspiracy. Up until that point though, loved it. Cant wait for season 2

My take away was the conspiracy was too big hence the guys just "getting theirs." I'm not sure where the disappointment for so many comes in unless they wanted a full take down of the govt and church, highly unrealistic, OR the void swallowing up Marty and Rust, neither would have fit what was happening in the overall story. I still find the butt hurt hilarious in the egg hunting crowd. The final lines of the series are among the best. “Once there was only dark. If you ask me, the light’s winning.”

I also can't wait for season two, they have big shoes to fill.
