LOST Season 5 Blu-ray Review

Lost Season 5 Blu-ray

Season 5 of LOST has recently been released on Blu-ray and I jumped on the chance to take a look at all 16 episodes again, as well as all the goodies the Blu-ray comes with.

I became a fan of Blu-ray for TV shows when I got a chance to review Season 1 and 2 of Lost. It honestly converted me because it was such a pleasure to watch, and the features were great. And the Season 5 Blu-ray of Lost brings back all those features I love, including SeasonPlay which allows you to create multiple profiles to keep track of where you last left off in your season watching. And of course you get all episodes in HD quality, which is always a pleasure to watch.

LOST is by far one of the best TV shows out there, and is one of my all time favorites. Season 5 not only showed us once more why the show is so great, but it is one of the best seasons along with season 4. Every single episode leaves you at the edge of your seat as you get closer and closer to finding out the secrets of the island. The writers constantly outdo themselves, and if you haven’t yet seen Season 5 yet, all I can say is what are you waiting for?

Season 5 starts right after the Season 4 finale in which Ben moved the island. In the first episode we find out what happened to the people that stayed behind on the island, as well as what is going on with the people that left.

The next part will contain spoilers, so if you haven’t seen Season 5 yet, you might want to skip to the end of the spoilers further below.

[SPOILERS]

The best part about season 5 is the whole jumping through time part which lands the people who stayed behind back in the 1970s, during the Dharma initiative. We finally also get new answers as to what the Dharma initiative really is, although there is still plenty of questions left unanswered.

I also really loved how the people who left not only come back to the island, but join their friends back in the 1970s as well. Seriously, who comes up with these things?!

And who could forget the heartbreaking finale that ends with Juliet falling in the drilling hole and setting off the bomb (or does she?). All of this to ending with a very frustrating fade to white. Brilliant, I say, brilliant.

[END SPOILERS]

Overall, season 5 is an absolute must-see for any Lost fan. Plus right now is the perfect time to catch up or refresh your memory to be ready for the sixth and final season of Lost, which premieres Tuesday, February 2, 2010.

Now let’s talk about all the special features included on the Blu-ray, and there are a lot, so I’ll just highlight a few that I enjoyed.

You get featurettes such a LOST On Location, which is really fun, and Building 23 & Beyond, which takes a look at the team behind the show’s real mysteries, and plenty more.
There are also deleted scenes and audio commentaries, but of course my favorite is the bloopers. I always get such a kick out of these (I actually included the video of the bloopers below, so enjoy!).

The blu-ray disc also has some exclusive features including:

LOST University, which offers a wide variety of entertaining and informative courses including: Introductory Physics of Time Travel, History, Family Psychology, The Languages Of “LOST”, Jungle Survival Basics, Deciphering Hieroglyphics, Art Of “LOST” seminar, Philosophy 101, and more. (You can find out more at lostuniversity.org)

LOST 100, which takes you in depth as the cast reflects at the first 100 episodes.

As you can tell, this Blu-ray will keep you busy for quite a while. So make sure to get your hands on Lost Season 5 on Blu-ray and don’t forget to tune in on February 2, 2010, when Lost returns for its final season.
