Day 09 - Best scene ever

Well, I don't know about ever, but it's the first one to come to mind. it's all [livejournal.com profile] brinshannara's fault, getting me hooked on Lost: that opening scene when Jack wakes up. Interesting to watch in light of the series finale. Link to the video on YouTube.

Wow, for me that came through gigantic and impossibly sloooooow to load.

It was a hell of an opener, though.

Yeah, I have no idea why it was so huge. I resized it.

It completely hooked me, that scene.

it showed right away that this was not going to be standard storytelling (which would probably have started with the various people intersecting in the airport, or on the plane, then led up to the crash).

The structure of the first season episodes especially impressed me, from a writing perspective. It was amazing to me that they managed to make the flashbacks as engrossing and suspenseful as the main timeline... you weren't going, 'oh, another flashback,' and fretting to get back to the 'real' story... you were impatient for both stories.

They didn't always sustain that later, but the first season was so well crafted.

The way they returned to that first image in the finale was amazing too, of course.
