Like a handful of other reviewers, mine play (on both a PlayStation 3 and standalone Samsung Blu-Ray player) with menu text that I assumed to be Japanese but may instead be Korean. That is, in order for the episodes to play, I had to blindly navigate the non-intuitive menu system, all in...Korean? in order to play the episodes, and once they played they still had subtitles in an Asian text.
Unfortunately, I had waited several months before trying to watch these. When they arrive, nothing at all on the packaging indicated that they would be anything but English; all of the text on the box is in English, and English is the first language listed on both audio and subtitles, so I saw no reason to question it on its arrival. I'd call it an inaccurate listing, but who knows, maybe there was something like the marginal "not your region" warning then like there is now. Not that I would have even noticed it then if I wasn't looking for something. Blech.
Still, I'll request a return and see what happens. I'll edit if I get anywhere, but in the meantime, I strongly recommend not buying this 6-season box set unless you're okay with reading whichever language its menus are in, which I to this day don't see listed anywhere on the Amazon listing. Guess I shouldn't have tried to laugh at the ridiculous $400 price tag on the collector's edition box set, when it IS my favorite show of all time.
But after watching five seasons of the show, I was hooked. And then the final season aired and I was angry. I honestly felt like the show had focused more on character resolution and had barely addressed how its complex mythology fit together.
So I bought this collection and I watched the entire series again, just to see the show in its entirety to see if I could make sense of what the show was intended to be. And after watching 6 seasons all over again, I changed my mind.
I'm not going to say patronizing things about how Lost is so much better than any show and that it's only for intelligent-minded people or that it's only for open-minded people. What I'll say is this:
Lost is a truly unique television show to watch. It's imaginative, surprising, affecting, emotionally-touching, audacious,and it has some of the best characters you'll find. And, yes, it has plenty of mysteries (and also plenty of answers along the way), but in the end, Lost stays true to itself: great characters, compelling stories, but just enough mystery to keep you watching.
I've watched the series a lot since it ended, and every time I watch it, it still has the same sense of surprise and mystery and emotion as it did when I saw it the first time around. And though that might be frustrating to some (and if you feel that way, you're certainly entitled to), I'm glad that Lost never had that part of itself taken away and that it will always retain the characteristics that made me enjoy it.
As for the packaging, it's great! Includes some surprises, some cool collector's items (read the Black Rock diary--you may find a long-awaited answer), and it looks well put together with lots of details that hearken back to moments in the series. The DVD case is a little flimsy and a couple of the episodes in Season 6 have very minor frame jumps (only like in 1 or 2 spots in the whole series), but if you enjoyed Lost the first time around, it's worth buying in my opinion.
Bottom line: Lost is a truly unique experience, one that I'd recommend without hesitation.
My partner and I are very much loving this set, especially the immense number of bonus features and extras. A must for any die hard LOST fans!
