The show was famous at the time for its high production values (the pilot alone cost $14 million and led to the firing of a ABC executive for greenlighting such an expensive endeavor), [[SlidingScaleOfContinuity inhumanly dense plotting]], [[KudzuPlot a tendency to raise more questions than it can answer]], and somehow remaining a smash hit despite all these "hurdles". The show also heavily involved its fandom in the storytelling process through the parallel Alternate Reality Game ''The LOST Experience''. The success of ''Lost'' inspired network TV to commission [[NoughtiesDramaSeries a slew of imitators]] (''Series/TheEvent'', ''Series/{{Jericho}}'', ''Series/{{Surface}}'', ''Series/TerraNova'', ''Series/{{Invasion}}'', ''Series/FlashForward2009'', ''Series/{{Revolution}}'', and Creator/JJAbrams's follow up show ''Series/{{Alcatraz}}''), all serious and densely plotted serialized dramas based around a central mystery and tinged with a sci-fi edge. Unfortunately most of these shows have failed to recapture the lightening and almost all of them were cancelled after one or two seasons.

** Lapidus: [[spoiler:Took a 3-inch thick steel door to the face '''and survived''', then pulled off a short take-off with a 737 as the island fell out from underneath it ''[[TwentyTwelve 2012]]''-style]]. "Amen, Frank" indeed.

** A number of episodes are directly named after works of classic literature - ''Literature/TheShapeOfThingsToCome'', ''Literature/OfMiceAndMen'', ''[[Literature/AliceInWonderland Through the Looking Glass]]'', ''Literature/TheLittlePrince'', ''ATaleOfTwoCities'', ''Literature/StrangerInAStrangeLand'', ''Literature/CatchTwentyTwo'', etc. Some of these books are directly referenced in the episodes as well. Other episode titles are less direct - for instance, "The Man Behind the Curtain" and "There's No Place Like Home" are both references to ''Film/TheWizardOfOz''. The episodes [[JeffersonAirplane "White Rabbit"]], [[BruceSpringsteen "Born to Run"]], and [[Music/TheAnimals "House of the Rising Sun"]] are named after popular songs.

** The Man in Black is very similar to Creator/StephenKing's world-hopping villian Randall Flagg, especially his incarnation from ''TheStand.'' In Ab Aeterno, the scene where he makes a deal with a chained and starved [[spoiler:Richard]] (who at this point has been chained in the ship for several days) parallels the one between Flagg and a starved and imprisoned Lloyd very closely. Then again Lost seems to have quite a few similarities with ''TheStand'', which makes sense considering Team Darlton says the book was influential on the creation of Lost.

** Michael had already taken a pretty brutal beating from Jin before. Still, when Jin gets a bit too rough with Sun in "...In Translation", he immediately runs over and threatens to beat Jin if he does it again.

* YouCalledMeXItMustBeSerious: At the end of season 3 of, Sawyer's in a funk after finally killing Cooper. Sawyer repeatedly addresses Kate by her name instead of "Freckles" or another nickname when she confronts him about what's wrong:
-->'''Kate:''' Ever since you got that tape from Locke it's like you've been sleepwalking. You don't care about our friends, fine, but it's like you don't care about anything anymore. And since when did you start calling me Kate?
** It's a sign that things are getting really serious when almost ''everyone'' begins referring to Sawyer and Hurley by their given names (James and Hugo, respectively) instead of their nicknames.
