The series Lost bent fans' minds one more time thanks to a Netflix mix-up. Reddit users noticed that the show's finale, as aired on the streaming service, was missing scenes that made it 18 minutes shorter than the original version. That got the attention of creator Damon Lindelof, who told Entertainment Weekly, "love it or hate it, the finale that aired is the definitive finale and to alter it in any way defies explanation." However, he quickly added that it was likely a simple error, and recalled that ABC-TV had created a cut-down version for syndication.

Netflix quickly replied, saying it had been unaware of the problem and wasn't happy about it either. (A similar issue occurred several days ago with Xavier Dolan's unusual 1:1 ratio film, Mommy.) The company vowed to correct the Lost problem, prompting Lindelof to quip, "If governments moved with the same determined alacrity that Netflix just did, there would be worldwide harmony."
