4.0 out of 5 stars A definitive edition?, 15 Jun 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lost - Series 1 - Complete [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This review focuses primarily on the Blu Ray transfer of Lost: The Complete First series; Lost itself seems to be one of those programmes you either love or hate, and I think it's extremely good, with the first two seasons being especially strong.

The transfer itself is excellent, and the increase in resolution is especially noticable on facial close-ups, the detail really is better than many BD films I've seen. There is grain noticable on some longer shots and darker scenes, but in no way is this detrimental to the viewing experience - this is definately a huge step up from the original DVD.

Moving onto the presentation, I was annoyed that after loading the disc presents a trailer for the Series 4 Blu Ray of Lost - if you were watching from the start, the last thing you'd want to see is tasters of what happens three years later. However, a BD-exclusive feature is the so-called "Season Play" which allows you to create a profile for yourself, and then whenever you return to the program, even after removing the disc, the show resumes from where you left off. This is a very useful feature, and well implemented.

Finally, the extras. Unfortunately, these are unchanged from the DVD release, and though they are substantial, they offer little incentive for those upgrading from DVD.

And that leads me nicely into my conclusion, which is that apart from the dramatic increase in resolution, excellent as it is, there is little reason for casual fans who own the original set to purchase this Blu Ray. However, if you're a massive Lost fan, or new to the series, then you won't be disappointed in this commendable package.
