In this episode, Desmond expresses doubt that "the button" is real, yet in the season finale, we see that he once did fail to push the button in time and saw firsthand that it was very real, as the metal contents of the hatch were thrown through the air by the magnetic energy. See more »


Jack: Are you in contact with the people that made it... the film? Are you in contact with anyone?
Desmond: [trying to fix his computer] Do you think I'd be here if I was?
Jack: How is it that you didn't know about the crash? About us?

Return to form
25 January 2018 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

When 'Lost' was in its prime, it was must-watch television. Remember first watching it, found it remarkably easy to get into, was hooked from the start and was on Season 3 by the end of one week. The general consensus is that the final season is a disappointment and cannot disagree.

Love the second season opener "Man of Science, Man of Faith", which had a Herculean task of matching the quality of the Season 1 finale but proved more than up to the task. "Adrift", while to me better than its reputation, was a few steps down and a lesser 'Lost' episode up to this point in the show. 'Lost' though returns to form in an episode as brilliant as "Man of Science, Man of Faith" and as good an episode as the best of 'Lost' can get.

The hatch and captive storylines are equal when it comes to compelling storytelling and are balanced beautifully, the mysteries of them becoming more intriguing, more suspenseful and more advanced. The flashback is a prime example of how to do a 'Lost' flashback and that it is centred around one of the show's best and most interesting characters helps quite a bit.

All the acting is never less than strong, Terry O'Quinn especially of the regular castaways and a chilling Kevin Tighe standing out of the guest turns.

"Orientation" is beautifully photographed, as always making the most of the island setting. The music is as always chilling and understated, while clearly a lot of passion was put into a very thought-provoking and smart script and the direction is spot on.

In summary, a terrific return to form for the season and 'Lost' overall. 10/10 Bethany Cox
