Add me to the list of people who LOVED this episode. The Charlie swerve at the end was awesome. I also loved all the wizard of oz references in Desmond's re-living of his life. Perhaps that was really just one complicated dream and didn't really happen, just like Dorothy's? (Or maybe that was the Island trying to tell him to save Charlie, if you want to think like Locke would...)
btw, for those impatient and complaining:
Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
3x10 is going to be a Hurley episode. I heard something like he's going to find a car on the island or something????
You believe me, don't you? Please believe what I just said...
Also, a broad sitcom as opposed to a drama. As much as I enjoy the reference-littered interplay between Johnny Galecki and Jim Parsons I don't think there's much energetic, gripping or dramatic about BBT.
