DBIM: Lost (Episode 14): Special

Severity: 2
Genre: Television
Date: 2001

Description: Walt, a kid with psychic powers, gets angry and causes a bird to fly into his window and die.  In some of the web-only content, we see he's summoned (and killed) more birds, for no readily apparent reason.

Mitigating Factors: It's a pretty violent show.  In one part, a character shoots and kills a polar bear.  However, that's a clue about what's going on in the show.  The bird doesn't seem to have any purpose other than to die.  So, I'm not deducting points.

Aggravating Factors: I'm not thrilled about the ending of the series, but other than that, none.
