Re: Would ATlantis or Universe had benefitted from extensive Flashback

all flashbacks do is ruin the flow of the tv show. If you got a good story to tell then you dont need flashbacks or flash sides ways. Keep it simple with a good story.
I disagree. Lost handled flashbacks perfectly. The flashbacks always served a purpose, to show life before the island, to explain why characters were on the plan, how some of them knew one another; in short, to shed more light on the background of the characters. As for the flash sideways, not using them would not have allowed the producers and writers to tell the story they wanted to.

Well ive never watched Lost so i take your word for it. Ive just never liked them and ruined The Event.
