What's down the hatch, you say?,
This review is from: Lost - Season 2 - Part 1 [DVD] (DVD)
I know what you want to know. What's down the hatch? Well, I'm not going to spoil it for you, but I will set you this challenge. Think back to the great cliff-hanger from season 1 (the hatch has finally been blown open by dynamite) and try to come up with the most creative and imaginative idea you can for what could be down there. I guarantee you that whatever you come up with, it won't be as good as what the writers of Lost came up with. I will say this, though: the washing machine was a great touch!
The things that made the first series of Lost a word-of-mouth phenomenon do not fizzle out in series 2. Instead, they get stronger. Big questions are answered with even bigger questions. Clues are everywhere - on the belly of a shark, on the label of a medicine bottle and in the total sum of adding Hurley's lottery numbers together. New characters appear with a great twist and some of their back stories are the best so far.
If you've seen series 1 and you're considering buying part one of series 2, there's no question as to whether or not you should. I have seen the first 12 episodes of season 2, and its much more compulsive and addictive. I watched the 12 shows in marathon sessions, waiting patiently for answers. I would recommend buying the box set because when you see things like the dead priests in the private plane linking up with a great back story and when you see things like a missing reel of film from the hatch's initiation/welcome film, you just have to keep going. You can't possibly wait another week for your next fix!
