Storyline

Following a horrific plane crash, 48 survivors of Oceanic Flight 815 from Sydney, Australia to Los Angeles, California, USA, find themselves on an uncharted tropical island in the South Pacific Ocean that is full of secrets, as they come to learn. The first day on the island is full of monsters, countdowns, screams, stories of the past and an unfolding love story between the quick-thinking Jack Shepherd, a doctor, and the level-headed Kate Austen, a mysterious young woman. Jack, Kate and Charlie, a former British rock music player and heroin junkie, venture into the jungle to locate the pilot cockpit to find the transciever and come up against a mysterious and unseen island "beast". Other survivors with mysterious pasts are introduced: The Iraqi with personal demons Sayid; the bumblingly awkward Hurley; the determined John Locke; the unpleasant and unfriendly self-serving swindler and sociopath Sawyer who tests everyone's patience; the very pregnant Australian teenager Claire ...

Trivia

The numbers: Jack's seat on the plane was found on row 23, one of the mythical, recurring numbers. It is visible during the flashback when he stands as Charlie rushes past him. This marks the first appearance of any of the numbers. See more »

Goofs

During the flashback sequences for both the pilot and the finale, different characters are meant to be traveling through different sections of the plane, although it appears that, with the exception of business class, the same section was used for filming but with different people. This becomes a problem when spoken lines referring to seat numbers as well as the footage from right before the crash doesn't match at all to the boarding footage in the finale. See more »

Quotes

Kate: So what does a transceiver look like?
Jack: A complicated walkie-talkie.

Just Started Watching on ABC.com
28 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had seen the sixth season because I had nothing better to do. People complained it didn't come together and that the ending was awful. I, on one hand, loved it and decided to watch the whole thing and see what my opinion was after all five other seasons. So here goes.

"Pilot Part 1" I knew this show was promising from the first 3 minutes with the excellent plane wreckage effects and it all seemed so real. The rest of the episode was even better. The ending was fabulous and you could totally relate to the characters. The don't really tell you all their names, but so far, my favorite character is Sayid. It makes me sad about what he goes through in Season 6. Overall, great cast with great characters and a great plot for a mystery/sci-fi/fantasy/drama show that I hope will come together. 10/10
