A few weeks ago, I posted a link to what I thought was a fairly poor list of the Top 25 moments in Lost. The top of the list isn't terrible, but some of the inclusions are kinda weird, given all the great moments we've seen.
With that being said, I'm currently compiling a list of the Top 108 moments (scenes) the show has to offer. I've gone through every episode summary on Lostpedia and my tally is up to 99 favorites with ten episodes to go.
The way I'm structuring the list is as follows - the top of the list will be for iconic moments only, the ones you'll think of immediately when thinking back over the series. Shannon translating Danielle's message, Locke and his wheelchair, "We've got to go back," Jacob and Smokey on the beach, Desmond and Penny, etc.
As the list progresses it gets less exclusionary. One of my favorite scenes from Lost is Eko telling Michael a parable as they wipe up Libby's blood in the Swan (starts at the end of the clip, goes right into Part II). Is it one of the absolute best moments from the show? No, but it is probably one of the best character moments the show has to offer. Most of the humorous scenes fall into this category too: Hurley and Ben with the candy bar (and with the burrito), Miles and Hurley talking Star Wars, Jack spiking the football. Great scenes all, but I don't think they belong at the absolute top of the list.
I'm not going to start counting things down until the series ends (since there certainly will be more between now and the end of the season), although I'm starting to write up the ones I do have in the meantime.
My question to y'all is what is your favorite lesser-known scene from Lost? I think most of us can come to consensus on the top of the list, but is there a personal favorite scene you love like Eko parable - something not as momentous, but a great scene nonetheless? Put it in the comments - I'll start counting down shortly after the show ends. :)
