Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Since Lost made its debut as a cult phenomenon in 2004, certain things seemed inconceivable. In its fourth year, some of those things, like a rescue, came to pass. The season ended with Locke (Terry O'Quinn) attempting to persuade the Oceanic Six to return, but he dies before that can happen--or so it appears--and where Jack (Matthew Fox) used to lead, Ben (Emmy nominee Michael Emerson) now takes the reins and convinces the survivors to fulfill Locke's wish.

As producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse state in their commentary on the fifth-season premiere, "We're doing time travel this year," and the pile-up of flashbacks and flash-forwards will make even the most dedicated fan dizzy. Ben, Jack, Hurley (Jorge Garcia), Sayid (Naveen Andrews), Sun (Yunjin Kim), and Kate (Evangeline Lilly) arrive to find that Sawyer (Josh Holloway) and Juliet (Elizabeth Mitchell) have been part of the Dharma Initiative for three years. The writers also clarify the roles that Richard (Nestor Carbonell) and Daniel (Jeremy Davies) play in the island's master plan, setting the stage for the prophecies of Daniel's mother, Eloise Hawking (Fionnula Flanagan), to play a bigger part in the sixth and final season.

Dozens of other players flit in and out, some never to return. A few, such as Jin (Daniel Dae Kim), live again in the past. Lost could've wrapped things up in five years, as The Wire did, but the show continues to excite and surprise. As Lindelof and Cuse admit in the commentary, there's a "fine line between confusion and mystery," adding, "it makes more sense if you're drunk." Other extras include deleted scenes, featurettes, a "lost" episode of Mysteries of the Universe, and commentary from writers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz on "He's Our You," a reference to Sayid, who tries to change the future by changing the past. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

I'm going to get one thing out of the way... I LOVE IT; it's a great little set with lots of little things that the completist-consumerist geek in me absolutely craves. That'll come last though.

FIRST, MY PROBLEMS WITH THE SET

There's nothing of any real consequence. Now I can't deny, the Geronimo Jackson CD is nice and unexpectedly fun, but the song has been available on iTunes for months, and it offers little insight.

Unlike most, I dig and understand that they wanted retro with the VHS, even if a VHS isn't technically authentic to the time period. What bugs me, like most, is that given that it's truly the only thing about the set with real weight and value to the experience, being VHS is just truly inconvenient. The end result is that the major player of the whole line-up gets seriously shortchanged; it's a brief but fairly important and entertaining video, but what are the odds that you're going to dust off that beast of a machine (the VCR) for viewing this thing more than once.

Everything else, which again I DO love, is pretty much fluff. It's written materials and creative packaging with 2 or 3 inside jokes (Hurley's famous garlic mayo), but nothing lengthy enough that you're going to pour over it again later...

*hypothetical complaint--why make one of the patches unique to a select few sets? I'd be pissed if I didn't get it (the submarine patch) given the price premium. Having said that... I GOT IT, lol. But sadly, my co-worker did not, and is thus sad.

ENOUGH COMPLAINING, I LOVE IT!!

It's big, and impactful. You're basically getting a 3" ring binder packaged in a cardboard box.

4.0 out of 5 stars Why disappoint a kid? December 10, 2009
Format:DVD
We bought this for our daughter who got the whole family turned on to Lost. Because of her we have bought each season on DVD and/or Blu-ray. Now we bought the "Dharma" special edition to wrap-up our experience. The overall scheme of the "Initiation Kit" is clever and fun, including the contents of the pamphlets, the sealed envelope, and the "authentic" VHS tape (although the video is identical to what one can see on youtube). No big surprises, just some gentle memorabilia. All-in-all some fun geek stuff, indeed.

The biggest disappointment is the random omission of the "rare" submarine patch. What marketing loon thought of this? Were they trying to get us to buy boxes in bulk to get the prize inside like this was some cereal box? To be clear, this cost a true premium as others (no pun) have already noted. It's like buying a deluxe edition of a car that may or may not have a working CD player. We will be contacting Disney/ABC to correct this situation. It's up to them to do the right thing and not cheat the loyal fans.

This is an amazing box set! One of the best box sets I have ever seen. Instead of a normal 'Special Edition' box set that my have one extra item. This comes with papers that makes you feel like you were actually just brought into the DHARMA initiative. It comes in a white 3 ring binder which automatically had me jumping. Everything inside makes you feel like you were about to start your new job. The DVD's themselves come in very nice plastic holders ,although, I don't know about their choice of paper covers instead of actual cardboard covers. One of mine were rather crinkled and bent (I might talk to amazon about exchanging it but I don't know yet). I am one of the crazed fans who refuses to open the back of the envelope so I can't say much about that.

My only concern and complaint is after spending all this money- they chose to have a patch be very specific to certain kits. I didn't get the patch but it bugged me to think that they would make it seem like we will run out and buy another kit and to think that those kits (because they were in short supply) will end up being worth more than the none extra patch kit bugs me too.

Like I said though, GET IT IF YOU ARE A LOST FAN! This made my day to open! I can't wait to see what they do to the sixth season, it will be hard to top this!

4.0 out of 5 stars For the hardcore LOST fans only... February 23, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is defintly a product for the hardcore fans of LOST only, any casual fan would probably feel cheated. It is a fun little kit though. The pamplets are fun to read, the orientation tape is pretty cool, and of course (if you can bring yourself to) the cool dharma patches can be added to whatever clothing you choose. You shouldn't expect anything that will solve some of the show's mysteries though. Even though the confindential folder does have some interesting info, this set really is just a fake DHARMA Orientation Kit and you shouldn't be expecting anything more.
I can't give this product a full 5 stars though for two reasons. 1)The submarine patch should have been included with all the kits. If you're going to charge $100+ for a fan only product, then why have something that is only going to be included with a few of them? 2)The pages that hold the DVDs and CD broke off during shipping so now they're just loose in the folder. They should have made something stronger to keep that stuff more secure.

If your a big fan of the show and can't get enough of LOST stuff, then you should defintly get this. If you just like watching the show then you're better off just buying the regular Season 5 DVD set.
