Season two of the television phenomenon that is Lost is where the questions, in many senses, started to be asked. Picking up directly after that first season cliffhanger, it sets off at a belting pace, continuing the adventures of a group of people stranded on a desert island following a place crash. Only, as becomes increasingly clear, the island is a mysterious place, and the survivors appear not to be alone.
In true Lost fashion, the second season of the show is far better at firing out fresh questions than resolving previous ones, although again, it delights in throwing out clues that the web-inclines can research across the legion of unofficial fan websites. For the viewer of the second series of Lost though, theres plenty to like, and plenty to tear their hair out over.
On the downside, after an intriguing beginning, too much of the second series settles into a comfortable rhythm, conforming too rigidly to a recipe of plenty of backstory, and not too much advancement of the main narrative. Its a device that worked first time round, but becomes tiring during the saggy middle episodes. Its a fair argument too that things move far too slowly and for little good reason.
The upsides? Again, quite a few. Theres little doubt that the premise still holds intrigue, and the top and tail of season two are excellent. The last quarter, for instance, is both meaty and very entertaining, even offering clues to how the whole show may eventually end. So while even the Lost purest will surely conclude that season two is an uneven dish, theres still much to feast on, albeit with the hope that season three gets round to answering a few more question.

Season 2 approaches things differently and to get the most out of it you need to be prepared for a slower and more thoughtful story.
As new characters are introduced the overall story expands and as the survivors explore what was beneath the hatch we slowly learn little bits of what the mysterious island may be about.
As before peoples backstories are revealed and the 'others' begin to exert a stronger influence.
Now confident and reassured of a hit show unlikely to be cancelled those responsible for the show take their time to allow the characters to grow and to explore. While this can sometimes slow things down a little the shocks and surprises are still there and as before they begin to pile up as the season gets into it's stride at the halfway point and sure enough come the finale you're left to pull your hair out as another cliffhanger leaves you looking forward to season 3.
The introduction of new people is particularly well handled as they are interesting and pretty feisty.
Needless to say there really isn't much else on T.V that can compete with Lost and if you have yet to see any then start at the beginning and enjoy. This programme is very well suited to DVD as it allows you to let the story-line flow more by "just watching one more".
The series is very well served once again on DVD as the 5.1 surround is atmospheric and clear as a bell and the picture quality is exemplary and extras are plentiful and most are more than just the usual backslapping.
Lost evolves into a more considered and mature programme in season 2 and is all the better for it.
The first episode continues straight on from the cliff-hanger finale of the previous Season - Jack, Locke and Kate head down into the bizarre hatch they found buried in the ground of the island, whilst Michael, Sawyer and Jin attempt to stay alive on the remains of their raft, blown up by the sinister group of Others who stole Michael's son, Walt. The first four episodes take place over the events of this chaotic night, and there is some play with the narrative structure, with overlapping stories which might annoy people as it feels like there is no real advancement at first.
The main threads for the season are Michael's hunt for his son, Walt, who remains captive, the discovery of a new group of survivors and whether Locke's faith in the island (specifically the contents of the hatch) is misplaced or not. As a whole, this season works really well although it did attract a lot of criticism at the time of broadcast for the change of pace from a character-driven show into a more science-fiction based drama. Some of the episodes are less vital than others and the flashback sequences begin to repeat character motifs that we already knew from the outset, such as Jack's `father issues'.
There are some answers to the mysteries that bugged viewers from the first season.Read more ›
Season 2 continues on from where S1 finished with the door to the hatch being opened. Opening the hatch was supposed to answer questions.....as you'd expect from Lost it does answer some questions....but it poses a whole lotta new ones! A few more characters join Lost this season as more survivors emerge from the other side of the island. Their introduction to the main group doesn't quite go smoothly and their characters definitely clash on one or two occasions. While S1 gave us the background to the main characters, S2 shows us the darker side of them as suspicions, jealousy and tensions soar. I don't want to say too much or I'll give the game away but one things for sure.....I'll be getting S3 as soon as it hits the shelves. I'm dying to know what happens next already......and I only finished S2 a few days ago!!!!
When season one finished we were left with the hatch being discovered, and thus a whole line of events followed swiftly and carefully. ABC, the broadcasting network in the usa of lost, have allocated this show to be of the ARG (alternate reality game) genre, and have launched a whole mass of media to comply with the show. For example, a hanso foundation website which allows clues to be discovered about how the island came about (please note the website is now 'closed'). But how good is this? Although not all the hatches are discovered in this particular season, i get a feeling in season three we will discover a lot more. For example, there is the possibility another hatch is underwater due to the mysterious "Dharma Initiative" symbol that was imprinted on the shark that attacked the raft. We also discover other weird landmarks and camps on the island, outlaying just how huge this place is! The "others" make more elaborate appearances, and the tail plane survivors make a few appearances of their own. I know a lot of people are saying that Michelle Rodriguez (Ana-Lucia) was a bad choice to the show, but I think she gave a fantastic appearance alongside Kate as queen bee! Finally...we find out how the plane crashed. And what happens at the end is proof that these people are definitely not in purgatory as i had imagined they may have been. They are very much ALIVE!!!
