THE TIME WARP MOMENT
7. The first flash-forward on Lost
The phrase “game-changer’’ has become overused and, therefore, meaningless. But when “Lost’’ delivered its first flash-forward in the 2007 third-season finale, after years of flashbacks, it was truly a game-changer. All of a sudden, the canvas of the entire series doubled in size. The art of TV storytelling took a few steps forward, too.
