This was a Christmas present for my daughter. We are fans of the T V show and this was being added to our collection. If you love Lost then you should get Lost: The Complete Fifth Season Dharma Initiative Orientain Kit. It Has nice extras.

This is a great DVD set! Love it. And Lost is a great TV show. One of the few that is still on TV. And so I hear it is coming to a End soon. One more great show gone! But we can still watch it on DVD.
I was at Best Buy yesterday and they have this set for $109.00... And it was not Blu-Ray.. So I got a great deal here. $85.00 and it is Blu-Ray.
All the disc are fine, the papers are fine. And I can get everything out no Big EEE.. ...... No Sub patch.... ;(... O well can't have it all...
Great Box Set!!!!!! If you are a true Lost Fan. This is for you...............And I am Glad I still have my OLd VCR... You just never know!!!!!!!

This set is designed to steal the money of people who are dedicated to the show. Everything about the packaging amounts to the most cynical sort of explotation.

What do you get for all the money:

(1) A song thats been available on itunes for months.

(2) A VHS tape containing an amaturish reworked version of a orientation film already seen in the show. Why do I want to go find a VCR to watch something I've mostly already seen and which adds absolutely NOTHING to what was already seen. Its not important. Its not entertaining.

(3) A bunch of printed extras full of bad jokes and without any interesting content. There is only one exception. There is a truce document included that is the kind of content people want. But it requires that the packaging be damaged to look at it.

(4) A bunch of patches. And they cared *so much* that some packages have an extra patch (the submarine). When your down to putting bonus items in something this expensive, its just tacky.

(5) Its nonstandard size. It doesn't fit on shelves and it doesn't fit into most DVD collections.

I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who actually wanted to watch the season. This is strictly a rare collectors item that you never open and put somewhere for a few years in the hope that it increases in value. I mean given all the features (the damage-to-open packaging, the VHS tape, the submarine patch), thats the market this thing was really designed for.

plain and simple i ordered, it came when it was supposed to and as hard as the delivery service tried to destroy the package, everything was well protected by sender and was in perfect shape

The show is great! One of the few left on TV that is not Trash! I did see this Box Set at Best Buy today for 109.00. And it was not even a Blu-Ray. For [...] buck I got the Blu-Ray here. I am getting more and more
at Amazon. The price here is not bad at all. Thank God For DVD's and NetFlix and Block Buster. As there is very little on TV now that is not Trash.
I will give it about two are three more years and I will not need Cable TV at all. Just my Nice TV set up and my DVD's...
And it really is to bad all the good shows are going off, and more trash is coming on...
Long live DVD's and the great OLd Shows.....

Nuff said.

spend your money on junk and you'll certainly be parting with your hard earned money for something that a few years from now will certainly end up in the trash.

but, it's a free world, if you don't have ANY better use for $80.....go for it.

I am getting the regular edition of this season, because the extras that you paying nearly $40.00 for is a vhs tape (who still has vcr's), some stickers and a a map, etc.., $10.00 maybe.

I was at first excited to see a fifth season set which included an explanation for the show. I rarely was able to keep up with all the episodes of LOST, so for me it was much more like a jigsaw puzzle with half the pieces missing. I was excited to hear there would be an explanation that would explain, and tie everything together in the end, but I must say that I'm very disappointed that the studio decided to use a VHS tape to convey the show's ultimate explanation. Who has, or even wants a VHS VCR in this day and age of digital DVD's and BluRay? It's stupid and ridiculous, especially considering the $75.00 to $85.00 price tag. It now just seems like a very bad joke played out on the show's viewers. I'll be spending my money on something else this season, and the studio's can keep their stupid VHS tapes. Bah Humbug!!!!!

It's completely ridiculous to cost as much as it does considering the current economic environment. I'm sure it may be nice to own for collectors and they should have a right to own it. Maybe the timing is bad or I simply want it and refuse to pay that amount. I just feel it takes away from an awesome and creative show.
