The epic story of LOST twists, turns and time-shifts in its outstanding fifth season. Packed with bonus material, including a revealing interview with the cast and a behind-the-scenes feature, LOST is better than ever on Blu-ray and DVD. When destiny calls, the Oceanic 6 find their way back to the island. Discover what forced them to return, and find out the fate of all those who were left behind. The answers to some of LOST's most pressing questions are revealed in this spectacular 5-disc collection, complete with deleted scenes and an incredible vault of bonus features. The show that revolutionized primetime proved again in Season 5 why it was television's most addictive and creative series. "You'd be crazy not to watch,'" proclaims Matt Roush of TV Guide.
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.

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!
The special Dharma Initiative Orientation Kit is just perfect for any fan. Yeah, you might not have a lot of use for it, but you have everything you need as a "new member of the Dharma Initiative", including a neat VHS (not that easy to watch, though). The letters and 1977 feel is just awesome. Just if you had traveled in time, like Lost's heroes.
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.
