Pre-Order the Final Season of LOST (Season Six) Now!

The final season of arguably one of the greatest TV shows ever made will be released this August with a ton of great extra features especially if you buy the complete collection that includes even more goodies; like the Senet game played by Jacob and the Man in Black and a collectible ankh and a black light along with a custom LOST island replica.  I have to say that I loved this show even though it’s deliberate machinations sometimes maddened me to distraction.  This is a show that you need to watch in order and with your full concentration. While it expects a lot from it’s viewers it does offer a lot in return to those that remain loyal to the show.

LOST is  such an intricate show that there are countless websites devoted to discovering the smallest hidden details contained within each episode and most of the time, those hidden clues help you achieve a deeper understanding of the underlying themes of the show.  Some people were turned off by the seemingly never-ending questions that even when answered usually raised a new set of questions, but it just added to the mythos of the show. Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and their talented writers pulled off an incredible feat of setting their own finale deadline and working their way to it on their own terms and it made a huge difference.  I remember the X-Files having several episodes that could have been the series finale because they didn’t know if they were returning and it ended up hurting the show.  LOST went out they way it wanted to and while the finale was controversial, it was hugely emotionally satisfying to me although I wouldn’t have minded some more answers.

The biggest reason I’m excited about this set is that it has an extra scene that’s never been shown showing an epilogue of sorts that may answer some lingering questions.  I don’t want to offer any more detail than that as I don’t want to spoil the ending for those of you that haven’t seen it yet but I highly recommend everyone watch this show from the beginning if you’ve never seen it and explore the mysteries of the island along with a brilliant cast and enjoy the TV show that raised the bar for all other shows.  Read the full press release below:

BURBANK, CA, May 27, 2010 – Since its highly-anticipated premiere in September 2004, ABC’s LOST has revolutionized prime-time television, bringing big-screen adventures home with a powerful story of survival.  Attracting a massive fan following and huge critical acclaim, LOST has already become a pop culture phenomenon.

With the release of LOST: The Complete Sixth and Final Season, audiences can relive every episode in the landmark final season, as the fate of each character and answers to long-pondered mysteries from the previous seasons, are revealed.  In addition, the Blu-ray and DVD releases contain hours of never-before-seen bonus footage including deleted scenes; bloopers; an often emotional featurette where cast, crew, writers, producers and other Hollywood notables discuss ending the acclaimed series; a much-anticipated new chapter of the island’s story from Executive Producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse; and much more.
