Created by successful television producer J.J. Abrams (FELICITY, ALIAS), LOST became one of the most popular and critically acclaimed programs of the 2004-2005 season. Utilising a ripe premise and well-drawn and acted characters, LOST attracted a huge following and was proclaimed the saving grace of a television year otherwise marred by derivative reality programming. The story concerns the survivors of a terrible plane crash, who find themselves stranded on a tropical island with seemingly little chance of a rescue. Medical doctor Jack takes a position of leadership, helping to rally the survivors and prepare them for a period of difficulty as they learn how to survive on the paradisiacal island. But everything is not as it seems, as the island offers potential danger in the form of a large, mysterious creature, and evidence is found that the plane crash may not have been an accident. As they struggle to survive, each of the characters forms alliances and makes enemies, all while dealing with the unresolved issues of the lives they've left behind. LOST distills the difficulties of society down to their essence, exploring these problems with compelling characters and with a setting that's equal parts paradise and mystery.
This DVD contains the full first season.
And so it begins. Its hard to pinpoint just when you realise how good Lost actually is. Granted, the opening episode is an astonishingly assured way to start, replete with an almighty plane crash on a seemingly deserted desert island. Yet as those who have followed the hype are well aware, theres far more on offer here, with carefully woven plotlines introducing a series of characters who are slowly and intriguingly fleshed out throughout the 25 episodes in this set.
At its best, Lost is a delicately layered adventure, laced with some stand-out moments. Youll find ample instances of them here, as well as umpteen examples of the quality of writing that underpins the show. Far fetched? Yes, occasionally, and you could also argue that it takes a while to recapture the energy of those dramatic opening episodes. But this is still a lavish, compulsive show that benefits heavily from its clearly substantial production budget.
Naturally as there are more episodes made and planned, there are plenty of building blocks being put in place for later on, both through the evolving life on the island and the plethora of flashbacks that back it up. Yet its at this point that the quality of Lost really hits home, thanks to lots of short term excitement with plenty still to enjoy as the show progresses. That makes Lost Series One a rewarding purchase, and one that promises even greater things ahead.--Simon BrewSee all Product Description

The basic idea of the show has been done before, plane crash on a mystical island, passengers survive and hope for rescue but this is where the magic of Lost kick's in and all sort's of strange happening's start scaring and surprising the survivors.
Each episode is based on one of the main charecter's and with how they are dealing with the island while showing flashback's to their past so you learn about the type of person they were before the crash.
The mystery and suspense had me hooked, the location and scenery was beutifully shot and the music compliments the show perfectly. There's not one weak episode out of the 25 and the end of season cliffhanger was brilliant and left me gasping for more.
There's something for everyone in this programme and i would be amazed if you don't enjoy it! Brilliant!!
I had heard so may people raving about the series and hell were they right, its so addictive, you find yourself having to watch the next episode, I have watched the whole of the first series over 2 days.
I have now also ordered series 2, 3 and 4, hopefully they will be here in the next few days. The boxset comes in a nice sleeve with 7 individual discs also in their own cases, its well presented and well worth the £18.
Anyone who missed the tv series and is thinking of buying this go for it you will not be let down, i was not a lost fan but i can quite honestly say that I am now.
Firstly, the main story line is going to take six to eight seasons to complete.
But the main thing i feel people are missing is, although the events on the island are the most important parts of the show it's not what the show is about. it's about how the decisions in our lives lead us to where we are going. as with all the best tv shows, Lost is a character driven show and is nothing without the complex back stories of who these people really are. over time, i feel lost will become a part of TV history as it's this character depth that makes this show stand out above the rest.
If your one of these people who want everything spelled out for you, Lost is not the show for you. But for anyone who enjoys a show on a more personal level and not only enjoys what happens in the seen but how the characters are involved and affected by the events then Lost is the show made for you.
If it were a matter of simple surviving, these survivors might have had a chance. But that's not all there is. A strange creature kills the pilot. A group finds a radio signal calling for help that's been going for years. And this group is not alone on the island.
Of course, as the group settles in, they get to know each other, and relationships begin to develop. Other relationships begin to fall apart in the stress of the situation. And everybody has a story, which is told to us in flashbacks, complimenting the action on the island.
I tuned in for the pilot for many reasons. Survivors on an island always interest me. And I'm a big fan of ALIAS, also from one of the creators of this show. I was hooked from the beginning and couldn't wait to tune in each week to see what was going to happen. With 14 main characters, some only get a scene or two in some episodes, but we might learn about them in the next episode with a series of flashbacks.
Everybody seems to have their favorite characters. Many people tuned in for Dominic Monaghan, fresh off of LORD OF THE RINGS. Matthew Fox was also a well-known name before hand. Personally, I was thrilled to see Daniel Dae Kim, who I've been watching show up on various shows since his days on CRUSADE. And I've also enjoyed seeing Mira Furlan from BABYLON 5 on another show, even if it's only as a guest star.
It seems the more we learn about the characters, the more questions that are asked.

Most people are aware of the central premise, but I'll summarise it briefly here. A plane leaving from Australia crashes on a seemingly deserted island, with the survivors forced to band together, despite their differences and build a camp on the beach, whilst they await rescue. Unfortunately for them, there doesn't appear to be any sign of rescue, their plane was off-course before it crashed and a strange creature roars throughout the dense jungle.
The thing that attracted me to Lost in the first instance was the mystery nature of the show. Within the first episode, you are hit with several intriguing mysteries, such as: Who was the convict on the airplane? How did a certain animal get onto the island? What is the monster in the jungle and the biggest question, which is the last line of dialogue of the pilot, "Guys, Where are we?"
However, there are some brilliant character moments which instantly help you identify and love the large cast of survivors. This Season in particular focuses on our survivors and builds up their history through `flashbacks' which cut back to events before the plane crash, ensuring that the action of the island events is given some relevance against past memories of one of the survivors. Some of the characters have very interesting pasts, filled with enough mystery as the events on the island.
The cast of characters is pretty eclectic with a vast range of races, genders and classes amongst them.Read more ›
