ABC (ended 2010)




  • Season 1 Episode 4: Walkabout

  • While Norman Croucher is a determined and admirable individual, he did not climb Mt. Everest as Locke states. His best Himalaya climb was on Cho Oyo in Tibet, the sixth tallest mountain in the world.

  • In Locke's flashback when he's in the lunchroom, his boss comes in, puts a coin in a vending machine, and just immediately reaches down and grabs a candy bar. In the real world most folks have to punch the buttons to get what they want.

  • 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

  • Numbers: 8

    Ray mentions that his wife had died 8 months earlier.

  • Numbers: 15

    Ray tells Kate that the closest town is 15 kilometers away.

  • Island events from this episode take place on September 25th and September 26th 2004.
    9+2+5 is 16 and 9+2+6+2004 is 23

  • Numbers: 23
    The reward for Kate's capture was $23,000.

  • Al Jazeera is not only the name of a network, but in arabic it translates to "the island".

  • Near the beginning of the episode after returning from the hike, Sayid has someone collect electronic equipment so he can try to boost the signal of the transmitter. However, near the end of the episode, Hurley has a cassette/CD player complete with headphones. Surely that would have been taken as well, especially the headphones.

  • Kate (under the alias Annie) tells the Australian farmer Ray that she's Canadian. In real life, Evangeline Lilly (who plays Kate) is Canadian.

  • When Locke comes to tell Michael that he's got Walt's dog for him and that he thinks he should give him to Walt, in one frame Walt is clearly facing away from them, towards the camera and then in the next frame you can see the top of his head in the corner of the screen facing them.

  • Truck Damage Goof:

    When the truck is flipping down the hill, you can clearly see the back of the utility tray fly off into the air - breaking away from the truck - but in the following camera shots, the back of the tray is intact.

  • A Hawaiian license plate (reversed by the way) is visible on the Marshal's car for a brief second.

  • More of a stupid action than a goof; but why shoot someone in the heart with only one bullet left? A more obvious, and safe bet, would be the head.

  • At the end of the episode, when Claire (Emilie de Ravin) is sitting on the beach, you can clearly see that her pregnant stomach bulge is fake and made of padding.

  • Looking at the inverted plane wreckage, you see a cargo area above the inverted passenger deck. In all models of commercial jets I'm aware of, the center section on the plane has no cargo hold as it is a structural continuation of the wings, often holding fuel. In addition, anything these passengers checked as luggage, would likely be in the jungle with the nose section, or scattered in the debris field, so keep an eye on the type of luggage they locate on the beach site.
