Best. Episode. [Possibly.] Ever.

My husband is not big on TV shows. And yet, tonight he told me: “When ‘Lost’ is all done, it could only be called a masterpiece“.

No, no, no, no, no. I am not going to rant about “Lost”‘s latest episode, “The Constant”. I will let others do, from DarkUFO’s comment section (check the amazing poll result on that page too, never a Lost episode had such a high rank before):

“I don’t even know what to say.. by far the best episode this season, maybe ever. I must have said “F..K YOU!!!” to the TV like ten times. My mind is blown. Oh man…”

“I probably haven’t cried in 10 years. That ending opened up the floodgates. A perfect mixture of emotion, science, wonder, easter eggs, and all that LOST usually delivers each week, only this time, on HGH. Incredible episode. Probably the best 1 hour of TV I’ve ever witnessed.”

“Undoubtedly the best episode of LOST ever. The writing that went into this episode was phenomenal. Absolutely amazing.”

“Freaking awesome episode! An instant classic. It’s like Back to the Future Part 2 on crack!”

“Best episode of LOST i have seen in forever… seriously! so incredible.. im speechless…”

“I can’t believe that such subject matter as we saw tonight ever made it to prime time network TV! That’s seriously like Discovery Channel stuff right there. I agree, one of the best episodes ever.”

“I agree that we need a new category to fit tonight’s episode. One that says ‘it blew my head apart’, or something like that.”

“One word..WOW!!!!”

“That was maybe the best episode they have done yet, right up there with ‘Flashes Before Your Eyes’ from last season. Desmond has surpassed Locke as my favorite character. Ever since they pulled Locke’s dad out of the magic box last year, Lost has gone from a wonderful show to maybe the best show ever on television.”

“How did that episode get on primetime network television? WOW!”

“Wow! Wow! Wow! Its unanimous!!! The best episode of Lost ever, with the exception of the pilot. To the writers: We’re not worthy!! This episode has officially given Lost the Emmy for best drama this year. Awesome. Freakin awesome!!!”

“It was the polar opposite of a flashback. It was a Flashforward from the past.”

“This episode was amazing. It blew my mind. This is why LOST is truly the best show on tv.”

“Finally, Lost has recognized the fact that its primary audience is VERY INTELLIGENT people. […] This is the most intelligent show in the history of television, written by some of the most intelligent writers in the history of television.”

“Effffff-reakin’ awesome! Holy crap, my mind is still reeling!”

“Usually I rank episodes out of 10 and so this episode is an 11! Brilliant writing from Damon and Carlton.”

Warning: Don’t watch this episode stand-alone if you have never watched “Lost” before. “Lost” is so serialized that what makes this episode amazing is not just the actual direction/writing of the episode itself, but how it makes you feel after having watched all the previous episodes.

“We learned so much tonight.”

Well, who knows me also knows that Lost has lost me. All I have to say now is that I find the quote above quite typical for this series. After long and long periods of fan-speculations and frequently ridiculous ideas of what the show is really about (I still laugh my @ss off from time to time when I happen to read such pages), once in a while you get some actual hints and informations in the show itself, and then everyohe goes boing, bouncing around happily like a bunch’a kids on crack 🙂 It’s the most fun part of the whole Lost history to see such events happen 🙂 Hehh.
