Storyline

Jack, Kate and Charlie return to the group, but the transceiver is broken. Sayid Jarrah fixes the apparatus and organizes an expedition with Kate, Charlie, Shannon Rutherford and her brother Boone Carlyle and the dangerous James "Sawyer" Ford to hike and climb a mountain to transmit a SOS. The group receives a sixteen years old distress call from a French woman in the island instead and kills a polar bear. They return to the survivor's base and decide to hide the information to preserve the hope of the group. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

[first lines]
Charlie: [as Jack fiddles with the transceiver] Anything?
Jack: You keep asking if there's anything.
Charlie: Pardon me for appearing desperate, but before the pilot was *ripped* from the cockpit, he did say that no one's going to find us unless we get that transceiver working. So... is there anything?
Jack: No.
Charlie: Okay.

More pilot brilliance
24 November 2017 | 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.

There is the agreement that as far as pilot episodes go, that for 'Lost' is among the best of them. It couldn't be a more perfect beginning to a wonderful show and six seasons on it's still among the best episodes. The second part of the pilot is richer in characterisation and the character development than the first part, Charlie and Kate here are especially interesting (very nice twist on Kate), and establishes the featured characters very well, making them easy to root for and feeling every inch of their emotions rather than getting frustrated at them.

"Pilot Part 2" is excellently photographed, made with a lot of atmosphere and slickness and with no cheapness at all, while the setting is both beautiful and mysterious.

Even for so early on, the writing is smart and taut as well as provoking a lot of thought. The story is absorbing, with a lot of emotion, mystery and suspense, not with the same edge-of-your-seat tension of the first part but it has a tension in its own way. The ending will give chills up the spine and make one anxious to continue.

Acting throughout and across the board is very good indeed, Dominic Monaghan, Josh Holloway and Evangeline Lilly has the meatiest material and in particular stand out as a result.

In short, like what was said for the first part pilot episodes don't get much better than this. 10/10 Bethany Cox
