Lost's Greatest Hit
19 May 2007 | by rick_crossley6See all my reviews

I've been watching Lost since day one, and I have to say this episode is easily one of the best yet. Even as good (if not better) the moment in season one when the raft sets off. I'm not an emotional person, but this episode really made my eyes swell, as Charlie is easily one of the most likable and funny character on the island (he is also from my hometown, and lived very near me, which is also pretty cool :P). I loved how the flash backs were arranged as well, it felt very final, and the way it matched what Charlie was writing was genius! I found myself through out the whole episode gripping the edge of my seat, you could have cut the tension with a knife. The appearance of Rose and Bernard was a nice surprise as well, in fact I could go on and on about how awesome I thought this episode was, but you can watch for yourself, although if you have never watched Lost before it might not have the emotional impact, and if you have never watched Lost before, what are you doing?! Go out and buy the DVD! You may have to wait till season 3 to get some answers, but it just makes the revelations all the more satisfying.

Being only one more episode left of season 3, the final episode will really have to be amazing to top this one. Somehow I can see an explosive ending ahead...
