Goofs

When Desmond is speaking with Mr. Widmore in the restroom, Widmore washes his hands by grabbing a towel from a tray to the right of the sink. He leaves the water running and leaves the restroom. Desmond then flashes back to the boat. When Desmond flashes back to the restroom it is obvious that the tray is to the left of the sink that was left on by Mr. Widmore in the previous scene.

When writers put on their thinking caps...
28 February 2008 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This episode was probably one of the best moments in modern television. It had all the parts: suspense, intelligence, heart, all intricately woven into a fascinating original story with a beautifully uplifting ending. I literally sat stunned on my couch for minutes after the credits rolled into commercial. Kudo's to the cast, crew, writers, editor, and director Jack Bender for making this a very enjoyable hour on Earth.

99% of todays programming is complete garbage which is why the 18 to 50 year old male demographic has left television.

Episodes like this is a good start in bringing them back.
