I never really too much about Scooby Doo until I watched MI. SO SUE ME.
The 52-episode series flat-out beats LOST at its own game -- setting up an overarching mystery and delivering on it.
Oh, sure -- LOST lasted a lot longer, was “smarter” and had “smarter references” -- but in the final season it delivered for shit.
SD: MI has references up the wazoo, a great sense of humor and pathos, history, and delivery.
