    What saves this episode is the phone call at the end. Very emotional. I'm not into all this time-travel stuff, though, I do appreciate the nifty twist on the method in this episode. You see, here, it isn't your physical body that time-travels, but your mind/consciousness. Clever. The experiment with the mouse is great, and the use of cuts in editing to show the jumps is also well done. But my problem, as it has always been with Desmond, is that his character is not really connected with the other castaways or the island or really the overall endgame of the show. He's in his own little world, caring about one thing and one thing only- Penny. It's a beautiful and epic love story, and that's why he works, but I admit I dread his episodes because they disconnect us from the overall main story going on.
