That one Jack-centric episode in Season Three where he gets his tattoo is arguably the worst episode in the series. I almost bailed because of it, despite my love for most other aspects of the show.
It was awful
. And absolutely pointless.
My favorite Lost scene is from season 1 when they are still on the beach. They are doing something important as far as supplies go and approach Sawyer to help. He's sitting under a shelter reading a battered paperback of "Are you there God? It's me, Margaret". I still end up laughing out loud whenever I think of this
None of the people I was watching it with had any idea what the book was so it was lost on them.
