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 production budget for the two-hour pilot was $12 million, far greater than the cost of most television shows. This led to Disney firing ABC Entertainment Chairman Lloyd Braun for greenlighting the show, which went on to become ABC's biggest hit in years. See more »

Goofs

Given that most of the aircraft passengers were killed in the crash - it is extremely unlikely, impossible in fact, that the 48 survivors should come through without a single broken bone among them. See more »

Strong start
14 September 2008 | by See all my reviews

A man wakes up in a forest, and soon realizes he has survived a plane crash on a Pacific island. He finds a handful of other survivors, and being a medical doctor, becomes their de facto leader. Some understand they may be on this island for awhile. Others do not. The doctor and a couple of others track down the plane's transceiver and almost fall prey to what sounds like the world's biggest bull elephant, although they never get a good look at it. The first half of the pilot builds up reasonable suspense, and is very nicely filmed on a beach in Oahu. Too many of the survivors are young and pretty and wooden, a common fault of almost every network TV show on the air. Because of this, it is hard not to believe you are watching a fancy, slightly surreal soap opera. Well, actually, that's exactly what LOST is. But it is definitely watchable.
