I gotta say... yeah. I'd be up for a continuation of LOST.
I am very pleased with the finale, and I don't really know what else they could do since no matter what happened between the Hugo/Ben reign and everyone's dying, we all know everything turned out ok in the end.
But I'd still watch it.
However, if they tried to have any other actors portray our people, that would NOT go over well.
AN EYE BLINKS, THEN OPENS FULLY - LARGE PUPIL CONTRACTS IN SUNLIGHT - UNSTEADY - IT'S SHAKING! THE EYE IS SHAKING AND BLURRY THE EYE STRUGGLES TO FOCUS WHILE SHAKING - CUT OUT to see who the eye belongs to ---- It's Jack!
(screaming - hands on Jack's shoulders - shaking him violently)
(sitting up slowly - trying to steady himself)
Kate? What? You were on the plane!! What happened?
VINCENT THE DOG
Yes Jack - we were on the plane and...
CUT TO BLACK
INT. PLANE - DAY
Kate, Claire, Sawyer, Miles, and Richard seated
(contemplative - staring into distance)
(much louder - her Australian accent more noticeable)
OH MY GOD! WHERE'S VINCENT??
I'd like to see Mother's story. How she ended up being what she was.
That's got to be one of the biggest mysteries. If she was actually the Smoke Monster before the Man in Black, then you have to wonder if there was a Smoke Monster before her. I've always been a little foggy on where the whole Smoke Monster thing started.
I would mostly favor a prequel story as well. To pick up where they left off at the finale (plane leaving) or to do a separate future storyline (i.e. Hurley and Ben) would be tougher to do. Fan criticism, endless loose threads, and actor availability would be the biggest concerns for me.
Like with what Boutte and lostcom said, a Mother story would work well because they could use nearly limitless ideas to develop the history of the island and its early inhabitants. An idea I had would be to incorporate the ancestors of our favorite characters into this mix.
There lies in the Ocean an island which is called The Lost. In Charm and all kinds of fertility it far surpasses every other land, but it is unknown to men. Now and again it may be found by chance; but if one seeks it, it cannot be found, and therefore it is called The Lost.

I like the idea of a prequel as well - maybe seen from the point of view of Ben - who is sent into the distant past. Another route would be for the new story to begin in the year 2036 or so (like they're doing on Fringe).
