LOST Season 1 & 2 Blu-Ray Review

lost_bluray

Season 1 and 2 of LOST have been released on Blu-ray disc today, and if you’re a fan of the show, this is a must.

Lost follows the survivor of the Oceanic Flight 815 as they struggle to stay alive on a mysterious Island. There they will be faced with many challenges and adventures each leading them closer to finding the truth about the Island.

I’ll admit that I am not someone that usually buys TV shows on DVD (I’m more of a renter), but after being able to take a look at Season 1 & 2 of Lost on Blu-ray, I now realize two things, Lost is definitely a show worth owning and from now on Blu-ray is the best way to own and watch TV shows.

Why?

One words: SeasonPlay

What is it? Well, it is a way to create profiles on the Blu-ray TV show you’re watching that allows the Blu-ray player to remember where you left off and play it back from the same spot when you continue watching. Now here is the cool part, you can have multiple profiles. So let’s say you and your roommate want to watch the same show, but have different schedules, you can each create a profile and the Blu-ray player will track each of them separately. So you’ll always be able to get back to the place you last watched the show. How cool is that?

Now that I got that off my chest, let’s talk about all the other goodies that come with both Blu-ray discs.

Lost – Season 1

The season one Blu-ray disc of Lost of course includes the full first season. As I took the opportunity to re-watch the show from the beginning (which I hadn’t done before). Well, I didn’t know it was possible to fall in love with a show all over again, but that is exactly what happened. I remembered that Lost was good from the very beginning, but I think I had forgotten how good it really was. Starting with the pilot, which is so amazing, even today it still blows my mind, to the cliffhanger, everything about Lost is great. And then on top of that you add the beautiful quality that Blu-ray brings (seriously it’s so great to watch a show on Blu-ray), it’s a match made in heaven.

For those who haven’t jumped on board with Lost, I think this is your chance. I promise you once you put that disc into your player, you won’t be able to turn your TV off until the end.

In addition to all 25 episodes from season 1, we also get a lot of special features including some new unseen flashbacks, lots of fun behind-the-scene featurettes, audition tapes from the cast, commentaries and much more. I think fans are really going to enjoy them. I personally found the behind-the-scenes featurette on the making of the pilot very interesting.

You can buy Season 1 of Lost on Blu-ray on Amazon.

Lost – Season 2

Season 2 of Lost starts off right when season 1 ends with the opening of the hatch. Throughout the 24 episodes of the season, the survivors have to deal with the “Others” living on the Island. In addition, we learn a little bit about the DHARMA initiative and try to figure out the significance of the numbers (4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42).

The great thing about watching season 2 all over again is that I am reminded of all the little details I had forgotten. And the show once again leaves us on a pretty crazy cliffhanger.

But of course that’s not all. The Blu-ray is also packed with tons of special features including never-before-seen flashbacks and lots of behind-the-scenes featurettes, audio commentaries, bloopers, and more.

You can buy Season 2 of Lost on Blu-ray on Amazon

Overall, the release of season 1 & 2 of Lost on Blu-ray is quite a treat that I think fans will appreciate and people that want to discover Lost will love. This is the first TV show on Blu-ray that I have watched and I am now officially hooked. It’s like a whole new world of possibilities and since Lost is one of the best shows on television, it was just a perfect blend.
