The epic story of LOST twists, turns and time-shifts in its outstanding fifth season. Packed with bonus material, including a revealing interview with the cast and an exclusive behind-the-scenes feature, LOST is better than ever on DVD.
When destiny calls, the Oceanic 6 find their way back to the island. Discover what forced them to return, and find out the fate of all those who were left behind. The answers to some of LOST’s most pressing questions are revealed in this spectacular 5-disc collection, complete with deleted scenes and an incredible vault of exclusive bonus features.
Since Lost made its debut as a cult phenomenon in 2004, certain things seemed inconceivable. In its fourth year, some of those things, like a rescue, came to pass. The season ended with Locke (Terry O'Quinn) attempting to persuade the Oceanic Six to return, but he dies before that can happen--or so it appears--and where Jack (Matthew Fox) used to lead, Ben (Emmy nominee Michael Emerson) now takes the reins and convinces the survivors to fulfill Locke's wish. As producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse state in their commentary on the fifth-season premiere, "We're doing time travel this year", and the pile-up of flashbacks and flash-forwards will make even the most dedicated fan dizzy. Ben, Jack, Hurley (Jorge Garcia), Sayid (Naveen Andrews), Sun (Yunjin Kim), and Kate (Evangeline Lilly) arrive to find that Sawyer (Josh Holloway) and Juliet (Elizabeth Mitchell) have been part of the Dharma Initiative for three years. The writers also clarify the roles that Richard (Nestor Carbonell) and Daniel (Jeremy Davies) play in the island's master plan, setting the stage for the prophecies of Daniel's mother, Eloise Hawking (Fionnula Flanagan), to play a bigger part in the sixth and final season. Dozens of other players flit in and out, some never to return. A few, such as Jin (Daniel Dae Kim), live again in the past. Lost could've wrapped things up in five years, as The Wire did, but the show continues to excite and surprise. As Lindelof and Cuse admit in the commentary, there's a "fine line between confusion and mystery", adding, "it makes more sense if you're drunk". --Kathleen C. FennessySee all Product Description

Time travel is an element that has been progressively introduced since Desmond's 'flashes' in season three, through to dislodged consciousness in season four, and now to physical displacement in season five. Those that have said it's been introduced out of the blue simply haven't been paying attention: it's been on the cards for a while, and neatly solves the narrative puzzle facing the writers.
The acting is to the usual high standard with some standout performances from Terry O'Quinn and Michael Emerson. The plot twists and turns, but the constant revival and resolution of previous elements (some stretching back to the first series) reassures the viewer that this rollercoaster has a sense of direction. Excellent use of sound helps cement a solid experience, and whilst the music offers nothing revolutionary, it's recurring melodies help tie the new elements back to existing themes with familiar musical cues and motifs.
What of the story itself? Characters previously mentioned only in name are now fleshed out to a satisfying level (most notably Jacob and Radzinsky). Furthermore, we begin to properly grasp the nature of the Dharma Initiative, see Ben have a chilling encounter with the monster, and watch the writers move all the pieces into place for the final series. Overall, this is gripping stuff.Read more ›
Finally, in season 5 we are treated with revelations about the islands history that reveal a few surprises. The relation between Ben, Charles Widmore and the Island is revealed through the various flashes. Flashbacks and flashforwards are now used in a completely different way to reveal the struggle of our Losties who have changed in many ways since the first season. The mechanism in which this is done may confuse people, but just bare in mind that this show introduced an evil pillar of smoke in the first season, that sounds like a machine and blows up trees!
Top notch acting from all concerned but Michael Emerson (Ben) and Terry O'Quinn (Locke) in particular since they, in my opinion, portray the most interesting characters. I find Kate and Jack quite boring, although they are more interesting than usual this season.
The only gripe I have with this season, is that it did not reveal much (outside of character development) about a certain organisation that I wish to know more about.
The season finale of this season is the best of of them all so far. Finally, after the events that take place, we are given a real clue to what is really going on.
My warning to newbies to Lost, treat Lost like a book, a journey! Do not watch season 5 unless you have seen all previous seasons, it will ruin the experience!
I know that at the time of writing this there's still another 4 episodes left to be aired of `Lost: Season 5' but the 13 episodes that I have seen so far have been so good that I can confidently say that this season is incredible (better than season 3 and 4) and secures it even stronger as one of the best US TV shows of all time. If you've not seen the previous four seasons this is definitely not a good place to start as everything in this season is just evolving from what has happened in previous episodes, so it wouldn't make any sense at all. I can't recommend this enough but I guess if you've already watched up to this point you'll no doubt want to watch this season anyway, but I can honestly say that this season is amazing and it's just a shame I have to wait until next January for season 6.
And "Lost: The Complete Fifth Season" may be the best season of the show yet, with some unexpected glimpses back into the Island's history, mysterious people, and more explorations of the mysterious Jacob. It feels like the entire season is packed with strange twists and unexpected turns, complete with a trip back in time that illuminates everything that has come before it.
Jack joins forces with his former enemy Ben, trying to bring the Oceanic Six back together and get them back to the Island. But Charles Widmore has been sending assassins to kill Hurley and Sayid, and someone is sniffing around Kate's relationship to Aaron. Their only hope of getting back to the Island is to follow the instructions of Eloise Hawking, a woman who has intricate knowledge of time and space -- and the Island.
Meanwhile, the Island is randomly leaping through time, flinging Sawyer, Juliet, Daniel, Charlotte and all the others from one time period to another. And when the Oceanic Six (minus a few) arrive on the Island again, they find that it is now 1977 -- Sawyer, Juliet and their friends have all been living there for the past three years, as part of the Dharma Initiative. Sun and Ben end up in the hands of the remaining Others -- along with a supposedly dead man now returned to life.
But as the fateful Incident approaches, Jack and Co. end up having their plans unravel around them, and a bunch of gun-toting Dharma people out for their blood.Read more ›
