Huh???? Yes...I am LOST
Note: If you have not watched the episode yet, there are spoilers ahead!
So, I am already ready to anoint this alternate universe(?) enhanced season premiere of LOST into my top five favorite episodes and am incredibly intrigued at the possibilities of this new thematic device being introduced to show.
The big cliffhanger of the previous season was Jack wanted to detonate a nuclear bomb at the swan site and in the process negating the incident that led to Oceanic 815 crashing on the island and erasing all of the castaways experiences that led them up to that point since crashing. The other school of thought, the nuke is the incident that causes the need for the button and Jake was always supposed to blow up the bomb. So what was the result?
Apparently both, and we spent the first two hours of the season jumping back and forth between Flight 815 safely making the trip to LAX and the castaways on the island sent forward in time to the island present of the show, which is 2007, and dealing with the consequences that were unfolding around Jacob and the Man in Black. If this doesn’t make sense to you, you shouldn’t be reading this or jumping into LOST right now, go get caught up on Blu-ray!
Now the first major clue that the show gives us that things aren’t quite the same in the 815 timeline as they were in Season 1 is the fact that the island is under water and and this happened at some point after the Dharma Initiative showed up on the island. Now what does that mean, we obviously will have to wait to find out, but we quickly learn from some clues on the plane that this isn’t playing out like it did when they first crashed. Join me in some bullet points:
-Desmond is on the plane, well maybe, he was very illusive. And oh yeah, what the f*** is up with that? Is he skipping through time? (oh, I like this idea)
-Shannon does not come back with boone
-Charlie is choking on drugs not doing them
-Cindy “the flight attendant” only gives Jack one bottle of liquor
-And there are a lot of faces we do not see on the plane that should be, and might be and just haven’t seen yet but in the instance of Shannon it was made very clear.
I can’t wait to see where they take this plot line, from Jack possibly curing Locke, whether Claire and Kate get into trouble and whether Aaron is in Claire’s womb as I think them not showing Claire below the neck was is a deliberate tease. What kind of trouble are Jin and Charlie going to be in, did Sun never learn English in this plot line, and the countless of other encounters are destined to have with a bunch of friendly faces from throughout the show. (My not so bold prediction, Faraday will end up being a great musician whenever we eventually run into him.)
These little bits are incredibly intriguing and once we get around the whole WTF of it all, this plot line of what would happened if they never crashed becomes very intriguing and almost as engaging as the on island coming and goings and I am really excited at the prospects of this bifurcated universes unfolding simultaneously as the show moves towards its end and can’t wait to see how the two compliment each other, the interactions these seemingly random individuals end up still having, and whether or not the pre-existing timeline and this alternative ever end up running together. (And the ramblings of a dying Juliet seem to lend themselves to the idea they are connected and she at the moment is caught in between the two).

Spectacular product! Exceptional value for the money!!!!
| Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Lost is a great series that undoubtedly will always blow your mind. I purchased this product because I own all seasons of Lost and started following the show during season 4, after watching all the previous seasons first, of course. I like having all seasons because I can always watch the series that kept me captivated for so many years. Season 6 is the final chapter and best by far and I do not regret purchasing this product. I've already had friends asking to borrow it.

The final season of the TV series LOST
I believe the six year TV series of LOST was one of the most well written, indepth and enjoyable TV shows ever produced. Although I had observed every episode televised, it was something that stuck with me and there was no doubt I had to eventually own it. I think the additional segments provided in the sixth and final season DVD package were worth every penny themselves. It will remain in my collection for a very long time, and viewed repeatedly. Go after something your interested in, you won't regret it, I never will..

The last and final Season of Lost
My son and his friend got so involved in this story line that they kept bugging me to join them...I finally gave in and after getting him he box set of Seasons 1-5 and watching all of them one after another until I caught up with the story...It was only natural that Season 6 should be included...I loved watching this show with my son..He normally doesn't get that excited about a show, but I can see now why he was so caught up...Season 6 is a special ending to a very exciting series..thanx for creating a series that brought us together for a very special time before he left for college..Although it was exhausting to watch, it was well worth it... a grateful mom

I, for one, absolutely loved it. What a great final season for "Lost". It is fantastic that they got to wrap up the series and give the viewer an opportunity to unravel many of the mysteries that have puzzled us since the first season. As with the previous season DVD packages, the bonus material in the final season package are top notch. If you liked "Lost", this is a must buy. The entire collection including seasons 1-5 are also amazing. In season 6, the ending was exciting, funny, emotional, well acted, wonderfully directed, and it gave the whole story a satisfying conclusion that was just beautiful in my opinion.
