I am watching Series 3 at the moment and two new characters Pablo and Nicki were introduced with then a flashback to the original plane crash. I just wondered, did they re-film the wreckage first moments to add them in or did they film it originally ready for the third season? In addition, did they do all the flashbacks first to make them look younger before they filmed the island stuff?

1. Pablo and Nikki were added in digitally to the pilot footage, they weren't there when they originally filmed it. Some of the footage is new but the bits that look like they were from the first episode were from the first episode.
2. Make-up!

The flashbacks were filmed at the same time as each new episode, they didn't do it in chronological order, as above they just used make-up, wigs etc.

There's a behind the scenes featurette showing how they filmed a lot of scenes from "Expose" on the DVD. I'm not sure if you could find it online somewhere. It's in the "Lost on Location" series.

Lost has been my favourite American TV show from America ever. I loved it, my wife loved it. I was enthralled from start to finish and can't pick a single fault with it.

Enjoy viewing, jonjons

Yeah, I've always loved behind the scenes stuff.
It's well worth a watch with Lost on Location, lots of interesting facts and surprises.

Lost has been my favourite American TV show from America ever. I loved it, my wife loved it. I was enthralled from start to finish and can't pick a single fault with it.
My interest did decline significantly in the last two seasons but the first three seasons still hold up as possibly one of the best pieces of television I've ever watched.
Regardless of how I didn't like the ending, and found lots of plot threads unsatisfactory in the end I just love those early years.

Wasted an hour of every week for 5 years watching that guff. Will never forgive their writers for that cop-out at the end.

IMO the best ending in any TV series for a long time. Sadly, it was misunderstood by many viewers.

Only thing that could have be worse was if the dog came out of the shower and realised it was all a dream. Actually that might have been an improvement.

You're absolutely, positively not on a gee-up.
Seconds out.

I enjoyed Lost, gladly I didn't go up the Garden path spending hours speculating of what things meant.
I felt sorry for those who bought into the whole thing and spent hours discussing it.
I was hugely annoyed by the ending.
Those who bought into the whole thing must have been fit to be tied.
Written on the fly, on the back of fag packet, comes to mind.

Nina and Pablo? C'mon Sawyer, you know their names, it was Nicky and Paulo.

(I realise you got Nicky's name right, I am quoting Hurley's line.)

Actually OP, I think that they decided to kill them off rather horribly because the audience did not like them, they were put in the crash aftermath flashbacks interspersed with various bits they had in the can, but a few things were shot later, in particular Boone asking whether they had a pen.

I am not sure why the end is so hated and I suspect it is not really, it is just pretence by people who don't actually like Lost at all. After all, the end is that most of them escape, some stay to become the Island keepers, Jack kills the monster but is fatally wounded himself and dies in the start place. What's wrong with that? Nothing.

I liked Lost (I've got all the shows on DVD and threw a sickie when Sky1 showed the final episode at the same time as America), but I think why most people didn't like the end because it was exactly what they said it wouldn't be in 2004 (i.e. purgatory).

My case proved.

It was filler but still a fun episode.

Which is more than I can say for half the episodes in the diabolical final season.

my feelings exactly, Lost was one of the few series where I genuinely was dismayed as the episode ended because I was going to have to wait a whole week to find out what happened next, and while waiting for the next series to begin I would re watch previous episodes so try and spot the clues I had missed first time round.

And then we got to the last ever series and with every episode my heart sank and I hated it I would have rather been left with all the questions unanswered, all the mysteries left unsolved than that twee skipping around in heaven that we were given, I have all the series on dvd except the last one, I never want to see it again

It wasn't so much the final episode and the way the show was resolved that I hated, just that the majority of the final season was spent on some absolutely bland plot points we didn't give two turds about.

The show had slowly built itself up over several years and spent its last year moving people from one side of the island to the other, swapping groups for no conceivable reason.

Well, the Island wasn't purgatory, so...

Purgatory or not, it was still $hite IMO.
Lots of loose ends and storylines not clearly explained = $hite.
'Understanding' the ending doesn't affect that.
Hey ho, I don't want to start getting irritated about it all over again, best to wipe it from my memory.

Yeah, it was clearly purgatory from the start. The early episodes are quite blatant with the purgatory allegories. When the show was renewed they couldn't just admit it and had to pretend people were on the wrong path so the show could continue and hold a lot of viewers with the mystery aspects.

They even said themselves at the beginning they just wanted to make 13 great episodes after the whole debacle over someone being sacked for greenlighting the pilot to begin with.
They were surprised the show took off as much as it did.

So as they had to expand on the show, it moved away from purgatory (they get off the island etc) then came back around to that purgatory idea in the end. They created the flash sideways to shift the idea onto something else but it was clearly the foundation of the show from the start.
