Lost: The Complete Fifth Season DVD Review


Lost: The Complete Fifth Season DVD Review

You can purchase this season on DVD today!

Synopsis: The epic story of Lost twists, turns and time shifts in its brilliant fifth season. Packed with bonus material, including a revealing interview with the cast and an exclusive behind the scenes feature with Josh, Lost is better than ever.

When destiny calls, the Oceanic 6 frantically race 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, a behind the scenes celebration of the 100th episode and an incredible vault of exclusive bonus features. The show that revolutionized primetime proves once again why it is television's most addictive and creative series.

Review: Lost is finally coming to an end!  Its kind of hard to imagine how television is going to go on without this popular thrill-ride of a show!  I was really into this show for the first three seasons, then I started to get bored when they did the whole 'others' camp thing in season 4, so my viewership dropped off.   When I got season 5 to watch, I wasn't sure what I'd think about the state of affairs.  I mean, a lot of old questions have been answered..a lot of new ones posed and a lot of my time travel theories were apparently accurate.

This season brings a lot of twists as the Oceanic 6 have to decide to make their way back to the island.  It becomes increasingly clear that there is no true escape and that their fates are intertwined with this island.  The story has begun to go beyond mystery into complete and utter writing chaos.  Its very hard to keep track anymore of what is going on and the show has gotten so far off of the original track that I wonder if it hasn't gone on a few years too many. 

On the other hand, the series is now coming to a close.  Next year the final season will begin and in order to make any sense out of this show you will need to be very familiar with season 5.  I have high hopes that the 6th and final season will make more sense and help bring this great show to a fitting close.

Bonus Features Include: 7 Lost on location, A Day with Josh Holloway, Los Angeles crew tribute with Michael Emerson, the 100th episode, Time Frame and Continuity, Bloopers, Deleted Scenes
