Find the answers you've been looking for in the explosive third season of the show USA TODAY calls "the most gorgeous, audacious, expansive series on network TV." As the power of the island to both heal and destroy comes into sharp focus, the lines between good and evil are blurred and loyalties are challenged when the survivors of the crash become tangled within the lives of the Others. Plan your escape, and immerse yourself in all 23 episodes of Season Three. Go deeper than ever before with hours of never-before-seen bonus features, including secrets from the world of the Others, behind-the-scenes featurettes, unprecedented access to the LOST writers' room, and so much more.
When it aired in 2006-07, Lost's third season was split into two, with a hefty break in between. This did nothing to help the already weirdly disparate direction the show was taking (Kate and Sawyer in zoo cages! Locke eating goop in a mud hut!), but when it finally righted its course halfway through--in particular that whopper of a finale--the drama series had left its irked fan base thrilled once again. This doesn't mean, however, that you should skip through the first half of the season to get there, because quite a few questions find answers: what the Others are up to, the impact of turning that fail-safe key, the identity of the eye-patched man from the hatch's video monitor. One of the series' biggest curiosities from the past--how Locke ended up in that wheelchair in the first place--also gets its satisfying due. (The episode, "The Man from Tallahassee," likely was a big contributor to Terry O'Quinn's surprising--but long-deserved--Emmy win that year.)
Unfortunately, you do have to sit through a lot of aforementioned nuisances to get there. Season 3 kicks off with Jack (Matthew Fox), Kate (Evangeline Lilly), and Sawyer (Josh Holloway) held captive by the Others; Sayid (Naveen Andrews), Sun (Yunjin Kim), and Jin (Daniel Dae Kim) on a mission to rescue them; and Locke, Mr. Eko (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), and Desmond (Henry Ian Cusick) in the aftermath of the electromagnetic pulse that blew up the hatch. Spinning the storylines away from base camp alone wouldn't have felt so disjointed were it not for the new characters simultaneously being introduced. First there's Juliet, a mysterious member of the Others whose loyalty constantly comes into question as the season goes on. Played delicately by Elizabeth Mitchell (Gia, ER, Frequency), Juliet is in one turn a cold-blooded killer, by another turn a sympathetic friend; possibly both at once, possibly neither at all. (She's also a terrific, albeit unwitting, threat to the Kate-Sawyer-Jack love triangle, which plays out more definitively this season.) On the other hand, there's the now-infamous Nikki and Paulo (Kiele Sanchez and Rodrigo Santoro), a tagalong couple who were cleverly woven into the previous seasons' key moments but came to bear the brunt of fans' ire toward the show (Sawyer humorously echoed the sentiments by remarking, "Who the hell are you?"). By the end of the season, at least two major characters die, another is told he/she will die within months, major new threats are unveiled, and--as mentioned before--the two-part season finale restores your faith in the series.
The extras are as well-stocked as a Dharma Initiative food pantry on this seven-disc set. Commentaries by producer Damon Lindelof, show writers, and numerous cast members reveal a whole lot of juicy trivia; plus, the DVDs even provide a subtitle track for the commentary (rarely seen other than on foreign-language director's commentaries) so you won't miss a thing. "Lost Book Club" goes through the parallels between what characters are reading and the show's storylines (The Wizard of Oz and Stephen King are heavily referenced). "Lost: On Location" gives a lot of insight to some of the biggest episodes, and "Lost in a Day" gives a 24-hour glimpse at the drama's arduous production. If you're a Lost fan who gave up during this season, the bonus features alone might lure you back for the next round. --Ellen A. Kim

But I gave it more thought and I decided to go ahead and "try" and see if I could "get through" the first few episodes before telling him "well I tried and it's just not that good". Well, I was WRONG!!!! I could not believe how HOOKED my girls and I got from the very first episode and we still are! We cannot get enough of LOST. My 17 year old loves it and my 13 year old is absolutely obsessed with it!! She even started watching it from the very first episode ALL OVER AGAIN during times we aren't watching where we currently are at!! She's on Season 3 on her "own time" while we all watch it together.
We have watched Season 1-5 now with last night being the finale of season 5. We are VERY sad that season 6 is upon us already and will be very sad when we're all caught up and we're done. I bought season 3-6 on Amazon and I am SOOO glad I did!! I HOPE you will watch every single episode of LOST and give it a chance. We think it is the BEST show we have EVER seen!!
Heck, I even dream about it pretty much every night. The only thing I don't like is that there aren't enough episodes in season 5 and 6!!!! I cannot recommend LOST highly enough! There just isn't enough "stars" available to rate this show!!! You will fall in LOVE with the characters (we LOVE to list our favorite characters IN ORDER and discuss why and what's going on during each episode), LOVE the plot, LOVE the scenery, LOVE the humor!!! LOVE the whole CONCEPT of the show and LOVE LOVE LOVE being engrossed in it!!!!! Thank God we can pause the Blu Ray player because we always have to pause it and go "no way!!! what!?!" and discuss what is going on!! It is SOOOO exciting!!!!!!
I heard alot of things about season 3. Mainly that the first couple of episodes were not really all that good, but the shows start gaining momentum for the season finale. When I finally got my amazon copy, I immediately put it in. Honestly, I don't really know what people were talking about. I have loved it from the start!! Lost has grabbed me yet again and I don't mind being along for the ride.
In my earlier review i mentioned not seeing the entire season yet, well now I have and IT'S AMAZING!!!!! One of the things people have been getting angry with is that they really haven't been answering many of the questions the show has posed. I feel that in season 3 we're finally getting some answers. At the end of just about every episode I found myself thinking... well what happens next?! I needed to know more! It caused me to lose some valuable sleeping time cause Iwould just keep watching. The show seems to grip you like no other show on television. I wish January 31st could come sooner!! Everyone should own Lost, and be Lost along with millions of people! Great Buy!
Season 3 picks up where the season 2 cliffhanger left off. Kate, Jack and Sawyer were taken and held prisoner. So the first half the the season is essentially telling three or four parallel stories. Those of the people still on the beach. Fleshing out the others' story and following Kate Sawyer and Jack. Most, but not all, of the character development in this season revolves around who the "main" Others were, and how they came to be there. Although we do learn some other things along the way like how Locke was paralyzed, a familial relation that is revealed only to the viewers along with a lot more of the Jin/Sun relationship.
Like in past years the characters do not get through the season unscathed, and the season ends not only on a cliff hanger, but with the first flash forward of the series. It definitely ends the season on a high note, with again some questions answered, but many others left open. We also get cameos from a few characters that were killed off in prior seasons.
As for the blu ray set for those who get the discs. The series looks and sounds great again. The season play mode is not as seamless is it was for the first two seasons, but it does work essentially the same way and you do not have to create a profile. There are a lot of extras for those who like to go through them. There is a good 2hrs plus worth of bonus material from behind the scenes features, deleted scenes, a gag reel and commentaries.
Lost is definitely not a show that is for the impatient or people who cannot accept weird twists. You have to be able to suspend your disbelief and realize that you will not learn everything at once. I is probably an easier series to watch on disc than it was when it aired because you do not get all the time between episodes and you can follow all the plot points better. If you like fantasy, action, drama, and/or mystery this is definitely a show worth checking out because it blends them all together very well.
