    You know I am predictable.

    Thought this was effective despite not liking the song; not dwelling on Shannon's death until the end is always a good call, because DEATH DEATH DEATH (and did I mention death?) can get a bit too heavy/dull in videos.

    Generally well-constructed; I thought the grayscale wasn't overused. I got the connection between the song and the footage, which is the most important thing in my book.

    Critiques:

    Flickers as mentioned; won't dwell.

    I was a bit thrown by the footage from Pilot 2--since Sayid and Shannon aren't talking to one another for that first bit, it didn't feel connected, and nor did the pan around to Kate talking.

    Didn't get the Hurley bit or the countdown clock, but TBH I am not a Coldplay fan so maybe it has something to do with the lyrics. Does it?

    A couple of credits clips: Michelle Rodriguez, Jean Higgins.

    Song issue, not your issue: I felt like maybe it could have ended at 3:49 without a loss, because the song never particularly picks up.

    Thanks! I'm glad you liked the voiceover, I kinda thought of it at the last minute but I thought it was a good idea. ^_^

    Aw, a Shayid vid! Still, some very good lyric intepretation there! Quite a bit of flickering though. Loved the end, Sayid's voice over was a great idea =] Poor Sayid
