Lost Discussion Group: My Favorite Episodes, and Yours
Posted by James Poniewozik

I'll be spending much of the next 24 hours or so getting psyched and prepped for the final-season debut of Lost, part of which involves simply trying to remember all the story we've downloaded over the past five years. Which means a lot of re-watching and looking back. So what better time to pick our fave Lost episodes that have aired so far?

After the jump, my list of my ten favorite episodes—I'm not sure if they're objectively the "best," or the most important—in chronological order, and pretty much off the top of my head (it's entirely possible I've forgotten a good one):

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.

A few honorable mentions, in no order: The Other 48 Days, Exposé (sue me, I liked the Nikki and Paolo experiment!), ?, Live Together, Die Alone, The Long Con, The Variable

I tried to spread the list around among the seasons somewhat, but I was struck, having put it together, that the much-maligned season three actually contains many of my favorite episodes, while the much-praised (including by me) season four—which was probably stronger than season three as a season—has only one individual episode that made my list. ("The Shape of Things to Come," for instance, was a mind-blower in terms of mythology, but I don't recall loving it that much as an individual piece.)

Your turn.

  1. Greatest Hits. I'm not sure if that's season 3 or 4, but it's when Charlie wrote his favorite moments in life for Desmond to give to Clairewhich annoyingly never happened). It was such a touching episode, the only one that made me misty eyed.

  2. The Constant is severely overrated. I can't believe Lost fans get misty eyed over that SAP. I find Desmond and Penny to be such a dull clichee straight out of grandma's song book, I've barely rewatched this one since it aired. An overhyped sugary confection.

    There is no more thrilling moment of Lost than Through the Looking Glass. So that would have to be my favorite ever. Also on that list: Orientation, Pilot, All the Best Cowboys Have Daddy Issues (best flashback of any character EVER thanks to the marvelous Christian Shephard), One of Us, Psalm 23, Do No Harm, The Man from Tallahassee and the one solitary bright spot of the horrible fanboy-fodder, dead-eyed and devoid of any soul season 5: 316. There's a beautiful scene that stands out there, Jack putting his father's funeral shoes on Locke, but it's just a very solid hour of television with outstanding work from the actor who plays Jack.

  3. Desmond and Penny are not dull nor sugary, this is true love and only the cold would not understand it. I think The Constant was amazing too. Best yet has to be Season 6 episode 5, that made me very misty eyed. All of LOST is brilliant though, every single episode and if anyone on here can write as well then go ahead.
