I've got a love/hate relationship going with Lost. I love it when I'm watching a new episode and new things are revealed and I start hating it near the end of an episode when it's clear that not only are there still some old things left hanging, but there's usually a whole new plot twist to absorb, adding more, new, unlikely, unresolved content.
This dual reaction (love/hate, good/evil, light/dark) may be just what the producers are going for according to mirror matter.
Or maybe it's just for fun...
