10 Best Lost Episodes

Filed under: 10 Best, Lost — petertypingfaster @ 5:17 pm

James Poniewozik has a list of his 10 favorite Lost episodes, and I gotta say that it’s a pretty darn good list.

Pilot: Though the series evolved to become something much different, when I went back and re-watched it, I was impressed again how much the pilot set up, and how well and economically it did so.

Walkabout: The episode where Locke got his legs back, and Lost revealed that there was much more to it than first met the eye, too.

Man of Science, Man of Faith: The season-two return, which delivered on the teaser of the Hatch, and opened up the playing field for the rest of the series.

Orientation: “We’re going to need to watch that again” – this might as well be the official motto of Lost fans.

The Man Behind the Curtain: The backstory of Ben Linus, the man who went from plot device in a parachute to Lost‘s most mesmerizing character.

The Brig: An underrated episode in my opinion, and a searing moment of closure – or, maybe, non-closure – for Locke and Sawyer.

Through the Looking Glass: Best season finale of any series ever?

The Constant: Probably needs no explanation to this crowd.

The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham: An episode that as much as anything set in place Lost‘s endgame, while bringing a heartbreaking end – of sorts – to the tragic character of John Locke.

LaFleur: Once again, what could have been a jump-the-shark risk for Lost – sending half the principals back in time to 1977 – becomes richly rewarding both in story and in character, as Sawyer finds a peace that we and he know can’t last.

Man I’m going to miss this show when it’s gone.
