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.Read more ›
Received mine in the mail today. Incredible! There are a few surprises (which I will not spoil). There is one in particular that when you find it you won't be able to help but say to yourself (or to anyone else in the room at the time) "Oh, cool!" I make a humble plea to other reviewers to please, please keep those surprises intact for everyone else (shhhhh!). The island has its way of showing us things we do not expect.
Lost is one of the most profound, rich, and esoteric series to be unleashed on network television since the Twilight Zone. If you are into the deeper questions of existence, existentialism, and the great mystery of good and evil you will not get answers here; but you will get fodder for the questions, and endless material for speculation. I think you have to be willing to leave some things to mystery in order to be satisfied. If you want quick, easy answers, and neat tidy endings - STAY AWAY!
Lost is a journey that does not end with episode 16 of season six. Hey, I've seen every episode and I'm still on the journey. It is the series that will never end - for any of us who let it flow through our veins.
The packaging is fantastic (one of the finest, most creative packages I have seen for complete TV series - and I own a lot of them. This beats my Complete Seinfeld Refrigerator all to hell.). The set is housed inside of a corrugated box inside of another outer display box, so it ships well. The only "flaw" I could find is that 2 or 3 disc in each season had a little glue on the edges. I have seen this in other complete season packages.Read more ›
Also, the extra features are A-MAZING! There are so many easter eggs and fun mysteries to discover in the package itself! Really a fabulous Lost set, perfect for any fan of the show. I enjoyed this collection so much, don't miss out on a great piece of television history.
Although the mysteries were tantalizing, Lost wasn't merely a show about devises and red herrings. It was about people. The Variables. How they affect us and how they change everything that we thought our life should be. It was about destiny and free will and how the two are not exclusive. It's about how a world is only worth saving if there is love within it. Though the story is told through Jack Shephard's rise, fall and redemption, it is truly a tale of community. And it is only with that community that we are really able to transcend ourselves too an enlightenment none of us could ever know alone. It is only with each other that Jack and Locke become one full man. With each other Sawyer and Juliet are able to lower their armor. Hurley and Ben protect the island. Claire and Kate raise Aaron.
The characters and their enlightenment was the focus of the writers, actors and all involved. That is what made Lost great. That is what made the mysteries so compelling. And that Is why i will often revisit this show. It was a gift.
