Created by successful television producer J.J. Abrams (Alias), Lost has become one of the most popular and critically acclaimed programmes of its day. The story concerns the survivors of a terrible plane crash, who find themselves stranded on a tropical island with seemingly little chance of a rescue. Medical doctor Jack takes a position of leadership, helping to rally the survivors and prepare them for a period of difficulty as they learn how to survive on the paradisaical island. But everything is most definitely not as it seems, and as the series progresses the island's many dangers and mysteries are revealed; including evidence that the plane crash may not have been an accident after all. As they struggle to survive, each of the characters forms alliances and makes enemies, all while dealing with the unresolved issues of the lives they've left behind. Lost distills the difficulties of society down to their essence, exploring these problems with compelling characters and with a setting that's equal parts paradise and mystery. This collection includes the complete series 1 to 6 of the television phenomenon.

There are several things that never made sense on LOST but we went with them because the narrative was so utterly barking mad anyway that we enjoyed the lunacy that continued week after week with flashforwards, backwards and then even sideways, time travel, teleportation and immortal beings all being part of the mad melting pot, but it did have its own structure and as long as a story stays within that structure and does not break its own rules I'm absolutely fine for the maddest stuff to happen.
Unfortunately LOST had a fair few of these that they posited as being huge things with massive potential importance and then they just decided they had no clue how to carry that forward and in true American parlance they fumbled the ball, I'm looking at you Walt (most important child ever, then not really at all) John Locke (spiritually in tune with the very island itself) which was then conveniently forgotten n the most ridiculous way and then we have Benjamin Linus a noble man and leader on the island (and mass murderer, child abducting and rapist inciting, callous cold hearted dad) who had more about faces than an impressionist.
I have re-watched the show more times than most and still hate the ending to season six and LOST itself with an undimmed fury, I grieve for the unfulfilled potential of the island and the imagination that originally spawned it that then grew unsure and cautious, by all means watch LOST but do yourself a favour and stop at the end of Season five and make an ending up for yourself, it will be infinitely more satisfying.
If you haven’t seen it, you need to get this. Unbelievable television.
The (minor) downsides of this product are purely related to the box set itself.
Firstly, when putting in the first disc of each season, you are forced to skip through several film / TV commercials. This might be commonplace for box sets - to be fair I get most of my entertainment through streaming platforms and rarely use physical mediums (so this may be standard practice) - but even so, it is frustrating, and does nothing to make me want to buy more box sets.
Even worse, when putting in the first disc of Season 2, one of the trailers you have to skip through is for... Lost Season 4! I mean, seriously?? If you're watching the show for the first time, this constitutes a major spoiler.
My last gripe is the Season Play feature. It feels entirely pointless - not least because I (like most people) don't usually sit through the end credits - I turn my device off and then will expect to jump straight into the next episode when I turn it on again late. However, Season Play "remembers" I was watching the credits, and so takes me right back into them. I honestly feel this feature adds nothing.
