Goofs

The number for Penny that Desmond retrieves is before the London area code switch over. When he dials it in the present it would have changed over. No amount of money Penny could have paid would prevent this. See more »

The Best Episode of Lost EVER
28 February 2008 | by brad_317See all my reviews

The Constant is without a doubt the best episode of Lost ever aired to date. From the sheer mass confusion of Desmond's first flashback to the brilliance of Daniel Faraday to the raw emotion of Desmond's conversation with Penny, it was undeniably amazing from beginning to end.

An episode like this is the reason many of my friends and I, along with so many others, tune in every week, shaking with anticipation and excitement. An episode like this is the reason I fell in love with this show.

Kudos to the writers, actors and behind the scenes crew of Lost. And here's hoping that next week's episode is even better!
