This box set covers the third series of the 2004-2010 TV series in which some passengers of a plane crash find themselves stranded on a mysterious Island. Continuing the story 67 days after the crash, this follows on immediately from the second series as our ‘4 musketeers’ awake as prisoners of the ‘others’. The first third is a bit like watching Tenko, Colditz or any other POW story but the main thrust is ‘getting to know’ more about the others although the technique used is becoming overused. Quite engrossing from the start this maintains a steady pace as Jack still refuses to let everyone move on. The plane crash, general ‘survival’, the ‘magical’ island, even the bulk of the original survivors are all pushed out of mind –its all about Jack and understanding the ‘others’ reason for being there. The 23 episodes are held on 7 discs which are in individual slimline cases within a stiff card outer carton. The first six hold the episodes and the seventh holds a host of extras. The discs open to a menu offering English and most European languages, then goes to main menu offering play all, set-up and some extras. Rated as a 15 these discs do contain some graphic brutality, sexual references, drug references and religious ideologies. The seeming glaring flaws and contradictions remain but you have to move on to stop this sinking into the ’run-of-the-mill’ thriller/dramas as around the middle of this you do get told the ‘real’ situation [if you haven’t already figured it out] but even so this still remains a good piece of ***** entertainment.
I really enjoy watching Lost as I find all of the mysteries so intriguing and can't get enough of all of the plot twists and turns. Things really seem to get going in this series as we learn even more about the inhabitants of the island and the strange group known as 'the others' Not to give anything away, series 3 picks up from the cliffhanger of the Series 2 finale 'Live together, Die alone' and keeps you hooked from there on in! Character's links with each other from their lives off the island come into light and we have flashbacks a plenty, focusing on characters such as Juliet, which makes for interesting viewing. I find that I can't watch just a single episode in one evening and end up watching about 5 just to get my fill. If for some reason you have never seen Lost, then my advice is of course start with Season 1 and in no time at all you will be addicted! I am anxious about reaching the end as I don't really know how I will replace it. Best TV series out there.
Even though this was shown a few years ago ive just only started watching it glued to the screen after watching season 1 and 2. The cast from jack to sawyer and my two favourites Sun and Jin the Korean couple has me hooked. Hurley is in a league of his own and john lock mesmerises me with his knowledge and speaks more like a guru. I just love this series. Charlie is also a favourite even with a band name like Drive Shaft I warmed to him from his role as one of the hobbits in Fellowship Of The Ring trilogy. Ben the islands dictator we shall call him who monitors them all is a full time creep after he watched the plane crash above them and disperse over the island.
Fantastic season of new hights !!!The second season was in my view a new dimension to the first season which was very elementary in my view !The hanger took season two to new levels . The third season examines the `others ` and the relationship between the Dharma initiative with the character of Ben being revealed , and his background whilset leaving unanswered questions as to how or why the Dharma initiative were there and others .The introduction to Juliet is great and the escape of Kate , sawyer is fantastic . The revelation of Lock`s past and present journey creates more awesomeness in the show . This is a must buy season of lost !!
Best series of the first 3 ive seen so far, Theres no pointless episodes of Sawyer looking for a frog or Sawyer looking for his roof. The only pointless one was the 2 foreign new characters who die in the same episode there introduced...strange
But overall brilliant series...more answers but also more questions.!
Brilliant - totally addicted to this series - even though I haven't a clue as to what is going on!!! No seriously if you want a good series to get to while away the dark winter evenings you cant go far wrong with this series - 6 seasons to get through so plenty of entertainment.
Robinson Crusoe meets X-Files! I just love this series... probably the best TV-series ever. It's on it's sixth seaxon now, and still very interesting. I've only had time to watch half the box yet, so I'm afraid I can't say anything about what's most interesting, when you've already seen the series on TV: the extra material.
