    Synopsis


    "When am I?" -- John Locke's chronological confusion sums up Season 5, which hopscotches dizzyingly between the 1970s and 2008 as it charts the Oceanic Six's return to the island and reveals important island secrets. On the island, Locke (Terry O'Quinn) is the new leader of the Others. But in L.A., he's dead, and his death plays a key role in getting Jack (Matthew Fox), Kate (Evangeline Lilly), Hurley (Jorge Garcia) and Sun (Yunjin Kim) to return via Ajira Airways. Sayid (Naveen Andrews) refuses to join his fellow former castaways, but winds up being escorted onto the Guam-bound flight by a bounty hunter named Ilana (Zuleikha Robinson). Ben (Michael Emerson) must return, too, to face judgment for allowing his daughter Alex to die. Their flight -- with Frank Lapidus (Jeff Fahey) at the controls -- is a bumpy one, but the final destination is indeed the island. Ben, Sun, Ilana and Frank remain fixed in time upon their return to the island, but Jack, Kate, Hurley and Sayid are flashed back in time to 1977, where they are reunited with Sawyer (Josh Holloway) and Juliet (Elizabeth Mitchell). After surviving a series of time-travel flashes, Sawyer and Juliet landed in the 1970s and forged a close relationship with each other and the Dharma Initiative, which also welcomes Miles Straume (Ken Leung). Meanwhile, Miles' colleague Daniel Faraday (Jeremy Davies) embarks on a time-traveling mission that introduces him to a nuclear bomb named Jughead and a young woman named Ellie. Both play prominent roles as the season progresses. ~ Paul Droesch

      Best looking season yet!

      Having been one of those folks that didn't watch a single episode of Lost until mid 2009, I look back now and laugh as I understand all the amazing hype this show has to offer. I now own seasons 1-5 on Blu-ray and am amazed at the incredible nature of how this show pulls viewers in, doesn't let go and keeps them guessing. If you, like myself last year, decide to give Lost a go on Blu-ray, do yourself a favor and don't start with Season 5. Start from scratch. You will appreciate Season 5 even more.....that and you will have a better idea of what is going on, sort of. Let me explain. Lost is one of those shows that you must watch from the very season to understand what is going on. Having said that, Season 5 is a first doozy. If you thought seasons 1-4 were out of this world then you simply can't be prepared at what Season 5 dishes out. In other words, I felt I was following the story pretty well, then Season 5 comes along and makes my head tilt in the same way when a dog hears a strange sound. I feel Season 5 is the most difficult season to follow but fear not, if you are paying some attention you will follow along fine. Just don't be skipping around episodes. The show does that enough on it's own. The quality of the 1080p videos is incredible. Some of the visuals in this season are Blu-ray demo material. Quite a few times I paused the picture just to gawk at what I was looking at. Even though the previous seasons looked amazing, Season 5 has a sharpness to it that will make you sit back in your recliner in awe. Sound is decent. The DTS-MA track is crisp and clear with lound thundering bass at times. The only negative thing I can say about the overall amazing sound is the rear speakers didn't seem like they got a lot of attention this time. Previous seasons had more and louder surround effects, at least with my system. As always, your system may vary. To be honest, I didn't check out every bonus feature. There are some cool interviews and behind-the-scenes stuff but one of the main bonus features is on Disc 4. For some reason the menu link for one of the bonus features is on Disc 5. When selecting this particular link, a message pops up telling you to insert Disc 4. Overall you can't go wrong with this season. Sure, it may be confusing to watch at times but it does keep you guessing....all the way up until the very last moment. I am now caught up with the series and anxiously away the arrival of the final 6th season. I will be watching it on TV with the millions of other folks that are pulled into this incredible show, with incredible acting, and incredible sound and picture. The only down sides to watching it on TV are the video won't be as crisp as it is broadcast in 720p (which is another great reason to watch the show on Blu-ray - 1080p), commercials, and the fact that I am now going to be one of those people that has to sit on the edge of my seat, waiting for the next episode a week or so later. Oh the agony!!! Aaaaaaaaa. =:^)

      Nice Set

      The Dharma box set is only for the dedicated fan. The orientation materials are fun. I did expect more extras on the DVDs. There were only a few commentaries. About my set: It is supposed to come with a copy of the "truce" between R. Alpert and the Dharma Initiative, sealed in a "confidential" envelope. But when I opened the envelope -- empty. Slightly disappointing, but I'll get over it. The Blu-Ray is stunning, especially with the beauty of Hawaii and of some of the actresses on display.

      Completely worth the money!

      This season 5 box is full of special items and features! Even before you start to watch or rewatch the season, there are so many things in the orientation binder! There are the 4 station patches, and they tell you how and where to put it on a jumpsuit. The orientation tape, papers about Dharma and the different jobs. Also, there is a CD of "Dharma Lady", a confidential letter (that I don't want to spoil what that is!) and of course the whole season 5 of lost! It is really worth the money if you are a lost fan! Very cool, and highly recommended!

      Get Lost in season 5

      Posted
      JStill05

      This is the most thought provoking season of Lost to date. Question start to get answered, but there are plenty of twists that will get you revved up for season 6. The best part about it though is watching the series in High Def. The scenes are much more vivid. Also, season play allows you to play an episode, get up, change the channel, or turn off your blue ray player and still be able to pick up where you left off. Over all a great way to be hooked on the show.

      Loved Season 5!

      This season is GREAT! Apparently, I had missed the last 5 episodes when it aired, including the season finale! For those of you who don't normally watch the "extras", do watch "Mysteries of the Universe: The Dharma Initiative", supposedly an episode of a series which aired in the 1980s. I haven't checked to see if that is true or not. But it's worth watching anyway. The series finale really leaves unanswered questions. Can't wait for Feb 2nd and the final season

      Great DVD

      Posted
      IndyBrick

      I am a huge fan of the show and I really liked the season 5 dvd. The only thing I didn't like was the price. I have bought all the Seasons(1-4) for less than 40 dollars and this fifth season had less episodes and less features and was the most expensive season DVD yet. I one purchased this dvd because I had a 30 dollar gift card. If your like the show and cant wait for the dvd to be cheaper then buy it if not it is not worth the price

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      One of my FAVORITE SEASONS!

      Easily one of my favorite seasons of the show! Love love love the way they used the island time travel to actually show how people in the past ended up on the island BEFORE the plane crash. The arrival of the Black Rock, Rousseau, Widdemore being an "other", the rest of the giant "Foot" statue...just awesome. STILL waiting for Henry Gale's smiley faced balloon though (hope they get that in there for the final season in Feb).

      Couldn't wait to watch this.

      I have been watching the Lost series from day one and couldn't wait to go back and watch Season 5, as I did with all of the other seasons. If you haven't yet watched the series, pick them up, they're great! It's so great you could seriously sit in your house for an entire weekend just catching up and not want to stop watching. The plot is great, the acting is great and it just sucks you in.
