    I am not sure if anyone else has desired this...

    I would love to view edited versions of shows that heavily feature flashbacks, such as LOST and ARROW.

    I believe it would be awesome to view all the flashbacks, by character, in chronological order, for all the flashbacks in LOST.

    I would also love to see an episode, or longer movie, that edits all together the flashbacks on the Island for ARROW.

    What y'all thunk?

    Would anyone else watch this?

    I think at least, it would make a great special feature on a box-set.

    (PS: I've picked the obvious shows that I have watched, do any other TV shows regularly feature flashbacks?)

    Somebody did one for John Locke, but half the videos were deleted... bummer.

    That's awesome that an amateur attempted this. Pity this can't be offered on official DVD / Blu-ray releases...

    I think it would be fantastic to see a fully chronological edit of Lost. It would be insanely hard to do though. By character, it's a little more doable. But I'd love to just see the whole show in one chronological edit.

    I mean, the flashbacks are clearly the artistic way to go, but it would still be fun, just as a novelty, to see a chronological version.

    We could write a letter to Damon Lindelof and ask him to do it. I guess the Breaking Bad finale made him hate himself and what he did to Lost (I guess... I love Lost). Maybe this is how he can clear his conscience, or whatever.

    This article he wrote contains more heartache than a Marian Carey album (trademark Ossy... miss you, man).

    I think the flashbacks of Arrow would at least constitute a TV movie...

    Your Potato Farmer sock was pretty good. Vin had me convinced that you were Juli... true story. He's done that more than once, too... I don't know why I still listen to his bull****... the ****er. :p

    Are there any other TV series, apart from LOST and ARROW, that heavily rely on flashbacks?

    LOST and ARROW are...

    I can't remember the password for that sock. It makes me sad.

    HARPUA, why did I have to google your name, and why did I have to encounter this?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harpua

    Father: Jimmy?
    Jimmy: Yes, dad?
    Father: Jimmy, I have bad news.
    Jimmy: What is it, dad?
    Father: It's about your cat... Poster.
    Jimmy: Poster Nutbag?
    Father: Your cat died!

    Poster is dead (2x)
    Poster's so dead

    Father: How about a goldfish?
    Jimmy: I don't want a goldfish (3x), I want a dog... A dog...

    How does this work in edited flashback?

    Because I'm a fan of the band Phish. I also have a Poster Nutbag sock.

    Nutbag sock? That sounds rather sexual.

    I hope you regularly clean your nutbag sock.

    That's way more complicated than I expected it to be. Weird how well the movie flows when you realize just how chopped up it really is.

    I want someone to edit a movie that contains all of Tarantino's films in one single chronological take.

    It's not actually that complicated, the image itself is needlessly cluttered and winding.
