Lost in a galaxy far, far away ...

If you're like me, a little part of you died a few weeks ago when Lost ended.

Hugo "Hurley" Reyes, the show's main source of comic relief, provides the bulk of Star Wars references. However, the homages to Star Wars don't end there. From a strategically placed Millennium Falcon toy to thematic similarities, the references abound.

Consider, for instance, the scene where Sawyer strangles Anthony Cooper:
