How do we know its 1974?
I’m aware that Lostpedia (the bible) refers to the time period as so, but where in the episode was this explicitly said, or a clue given that this might be the year? I tried to watch carefully, but I may have missed something. Did Lindeloff and Cuse confirm in a podcast or interview that its 1974? If you could point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.
