Trivia

Desmond's condition following the mishap during the helicopter flight to the boat is very similar to that of Billy Pilgrim, the main character of the novel 'Slaughterhouse-Five', who becomes "unstuck in time" and has multiple experiences in which his consciousness jumps backwards and forwards to different points within his own lifespan.

A modern TV Masterpiece ?
3 March 2008 | by danytruck2See all my reviews

Lost is really a great way of calling our attention on modern entertainment. Despite the fans who goes too deep into symbols, signs and theories I feel touched by the story itself. The way it's narrated, changing focuses and voices. Sometimes it's related to books i've read, sometimes goes to science topics, but underneath there are a beautiful humanism. But this episode...God!. It deserves to be taught in TV schools. Desmond character is simply fantastic. Equal parts of sadness and faith. Marvelous interaction with Faraday and Sayid. The script is awesome, the acting, everything.

And only in 42 minutes !!! I can't describe my feelings after watching this episode.

It has to be nominated to Emmys, Globes, etc. No doubts.
