I’ll not give any spoilers – other than to say the series has been up to its usual standard of twists, turns, and edge-of-the-seat drama. It still remains probably the best thing on telly.
However, in episode 7 they committed a major faux-pas. In a flashback sequence, a character passes an army recruitment office in London and is briefly distracted by a poster in the window, which contains two unforgiveable errors.
- The poster is advertising the Royal Scots. Why would they be recruiting in London?
- The caption at the bottom is “Honor and Adventure”.
There are few things I hate more in life than American spelling, and the arrogance and ignorance with which the show’s producers used it in a British context was startling.
I’ll forgive them, though. It’s Lost, after all.
