The complete collection of If you were a devoted viewer of "Lost" like I was, you sat on the edge of your seat for six years through every twist and turn. You wondered what the significance was of 'the numbers,' where or what the island was, and whether these unique characters were brought together by fate or coincidence. You waited impatiently during programming gaps, yelled at your TV, discussed theories with friends, and wondered if you'd be devastated or relieved when the series came to a close. So... are you ready to relive it all again?
Sure, "whatever happened, happened," but now that we finally have a clear comprehension of the show, there's so much to experience again with newfound appreciation and significance. Like Desmond's popular phrase, "see you in another life, brother." Kind of mind-blowing in retrospect, right? Well, thankfully for us Losties, there are still mysteries ahead!
I received my review copy of "Lost: The Complete Collection" last week (don't hate me), and have already re-watched the final season and the bonus features. First I explored the incredibly packaged box set itself. Designed to look like the temple, complete with stone-like texture and hieroglyphics, the box itself is a real collector's item and hands-down the most uniquely packaged sets ever. Here are the contents:
- Replica 'Senet' game with black and white rock game pieces
- Ankh symbol that contains a secret message from Jacob
- Recovered Black Rock Journal entry
- Island replica
- Black light torch
- Exclusive episode guide
- All 117 episodes on 36 discs
- Over 32 hours of bonus features from all 6 seasons
- Bonus chapter: "The New Man in Charge"
- Over 3 hours of never-before-seen bonus material exclusive to the collection
The bonus chapter, And though all of this sounds incredibly impressive, let's just say there is more than meets the eye when it comes to exploring this box set!
I am thrilled to own every episode, but the bonus features are the real draw here. They contain hilarious blooper reels, Comic-Con appearances, an inside look at the props and tour of the island locations, and much more behind-the-scenes footage.
The complete series is available for purchase on DVD ($230) and Blu-Ray ($280) tomorrow. If you don't want to break the bank, pick up a copy of Season 6 ($60 on DVD or $80 on Blu-Ray), which contains many of the final season extras, including the bonus chapter. If you're a fan, you don't want to miss out on these, so enjoy and Namaste!
