ABC (ended 2010)




  • Season 1 Episode 1: Pilot (1)

  • A jet engine produces a tremendous amount of thrust. Therefore, there is no way it would be just sitting on the beach like it is in "Pilot."

  • In the first flashback that Jack has, the attendant announces that the "pilot" has turned on the seat belt sign. The next two flashbacks - for Charlie and Kate - are the same except she says "captain."

  • Having a running engine on the beach made for a pretty dynamic rescue scene, but when the nose section came off, all controls to the engine would be lost, and it would have started spooling down at that point and quickly gotten to where it would not have the power to pull anyone off their feet. In addition, fuel pump power would have been cut off when the plane was ripped apart. The fuel could not even gravity feed as the engine was on top of the wing.

  • Nitpick: It has been suggested that in such a violent plane crash, the dog could not have been uninjured when everyone else had bruises and cuts. However, the dog could have been injured, but they may have just not shown it, or it might not just have external wounds.

  • Just after Jack, Kate, and Charlie are in the nose of the plane, they start running through the jungle. During this scene, off to the right hand corner of the screen, you can see someone standing behind the trees in a blue poncho.

  • Season 1 Episode 2: Pilot (2)

  • Goof: When Sayid says that he fought in the Gulf War, Hurley says he had a buddy who also fought there, stating "He was in the 104th Airborne." There was no unit designated "104th Airborne" that fought in the Gulf War. There was, however, a 104th Airborne that fought in Chechnya for the Russian Federation in 2004.

  • When Sayid and Sawyer are fighting, Sayid says "Ibn al-kalb" to him. This translates to "Son of a bitch".

  • When Kate, Sayid, Boone, Shannon and Charlie are leaving the camp to test the tranceiver, Sawyer is reading a letter and we can see that he is not shaved. A couple of seconds later, when he joins them he is shaved, which wouldn't be possible in this time frame.

  • Numbers: 8

    The ring charlie has in his right hand has 8 point-lane.

  • Boone had no way of knowing that the pilot was killed on Charlie, Kate and Jack's trip to the front of the plane? When asked if there were any survivors, Jack replied no while Charlie and Kate looked away.

  • Numbers: 16

    The message the survivors pick up has been repeating itself for 16 years.

  • As stated by Locke, backgammon is (probably) the oldest game in the world, being over 5,000 years old and dating back to ancient Mesopotamia.

  • When Jack was about to pull out the shrapnel from the marshal, you can see the marshal's legs are crossed. Someone unconscious couldn't do this and I don't think anyone else would have thought to cross an unconscious person's legs.

  • The french on the radio was not really as Shannon translated, but rather: "It is outside, they are all dead, please help us". And then "If anyone hears this, I'll try to reach the Black Rock".

  • Though Sayid's calculation is merely an estimate, the message would have only repeated for approximately 8 years. This is calculating based on the fact that the message was only about 21 seconds long and that the iteration at the end of each message would have been a few seconds shorter when it was initially started playing by the french woman. However, based on a static length message of 30 seconds, Sayid's calcuation is dead on at 16 years.

  • Season 1 Episode 3: Tabula Rasa

  • The farmer tells Kate that he saw her photo in the post office and that her capture would result in a $23,000 reward. However, Australian wanted posters are usually shown in police stations. Post offices never have them and they normally do not specify rewards.

  • Jack tells Kate that the US Marshal may survive "2, 3, or 4 days." 4 is one of "The Numbers."

  • Charlie retapes the finger that had the letter 'F' and writes the letter 'L', now spelling - L A T E.

  • In numerology, you assign numbers to each letter of the alphabet: a=1, b=2, c=3 ... z=26, to find hidden meanings in text. Applying this to LATE (what Charlie writes on his bandages):
    12x1x20x5=1200. 1200 can be divided by 4, 8, 15 and 16, which are almost all The Numbers. Plus, those are 4 numbers. Once again, 4 is one of The Numbers.

  • Numbers:

    Kate's mug shot number is 961136, which not only contains a reversed 16, but is perfectly divisible by 4, 8 and 16. also if you add 961136 you get 26 and 2+6 is 8

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
