Summary: A Must Have
Comment: The first thing I am curious about is the '9 December' release date for Lost 4... I walked into our local CD/DVD store the weekend before last and found it in the new release section. And no, it is not a bootleg of some sort. My wife and I had not watched Season 4, as it airs on pricey satelite tv here, and we waited patiently for the DVD box. We ended up ploughing through all of it (special features included) by Monday evening.

If I have one criticism it is that the season seemed quite short.

The filming is superb (It must be simply stunning to watch on a Blu Ray system) and as always, had us on the cliched edge of our seat..... Now we have to wait (im)patiently for Season 5...

Summary: "It's not an island... it's a place where miracles happen"
Comment: Season 4 of this incredibly addictive television series picks up where season 3 ended off... in the future (or the present...technically). After three seasons of Lost, the format had begun to get a bit stale. While flashbacks for newer characters such as Desmond, Ben and Juliet had made for some interesting episodes, many viewers became bored with Kate running, Sawyer conning and Jack pining. Seeing this as well as any viewer could, the creators of Lost decided to switch things up a bit in the fourth season. The "flash forwards" as they have come to be known added an intrigue to the show that hadn't been felt in quite some time. Who are the Oceanic 6, what happened to the rest of the survivors of 815, how did the 6 escape the island, and who the hell is in the damn coffin!?!?! These were just a few of the questions posed (and answered, thankfully) in the fourth season.

The fourth season also includes some of the finest episodes and acting of the entire series. "The Constant" is 40 of the most emotionally gripping minutes of television you will ever see. Henry Ian Cusick continues to make Desmond one of the more lovable and let's be honest, coolest characters on television. In addition, Terry O' Quinn continues with the John Locke character where he was left off at the end of season 1. That is as the most mysterious and captivating characters on television. And of course, we can't mention John Locke without mentioning Benjamin Linus. Mr. Michael Emerson does the impossible in this season. He makes you actually feel bad for Benjamin Linus. I challenge any other actor to do that.

Well, I could go on and on. I'll try to wrap this up by saying that save for one or two episodes like "Eggtown" and the eagerly awaited yet terribly disappointing "Meet Kevin Johnson", this is a near perfect season from start to finish. Even those episodes are far beyond worth watching. So what are you waiting for? Catch up, it's almost January!

Summary: Flash forward season
Comment: This is the season that has flash forward of what will be happening after getting of the island. I feel that it's a bit too revealing. I call those as spoilers. Many things expected such as who were the Oceanic 6. Who Sayid is after. Flash forward means that there's not much past to tell anymore. Overall, it's a very nice season because of the rescue + escape. Clare really had a small role in this season. Desmond stepped up to be one of the regulars. Locke continues his destiny thing. Ben is still using people and got nothing to lose at the end. Season 5 will probably being from what happened after moving the island and the Oceanic 6 unites in search for the island.

Summary: I love this season the best, can't wait till Dec 9th!
Comment: I love this show, its the best on TV. This show hooks you from the begininng and pulls you in you want to know what happens next. I ended up watching this entire season in two days. A must for all you sci-fi buffs. My favorite episode in this season is Eggtown.

One of the things LOST introduced me to was the Twilight Zone which J.J. Abrams was inspired. Besides this season 4 of lost, I recommend a book also on Amazon.com. THE TWILIGHT ZONE: Unlocking the Door to a Television Classic by Martin Grams. Together, they both open the skies for cult television.

A must on everyone's christmas list!!!

Summary: Confirmed: The best edge of your seat box office appeal is really on TV
Comment: Lost is part `ER', part `X Files', part `Star Trek', part `Twin Peaks', part `Gilligan's Island', a whole big bit of `Survivor' and yet remains totally unique in every conceivable way. Lost is something to look forward to. It really has become a part of our lives.

In many ways the best way to enjoy Lost is to avoid learning anything about it and just watch it with others who know nothing about it and guess what is going on. For this reason just buy it and prepare to watch a whole season in the span of a few days and then sulk in disappointed over how you have to wait another year to watch the next season, skipping TV, because you know watching a season with every episode back to back is the best way to experience the best that television has to offer.

The logistics are simple. A plane travelling from Sydney to LA has veered 1000km off course and smashed into an island strewing the passengers everywhere who soon learn from a co-pilot that their rescuers are looking for them in the wrong place. When the co-pilot is hurled into the air and eaten alive by an invisible beast who stalks the island the audience comes to realize that the island is no ordinary island, and so do the survivors who set about establishing themselves and facing various challenges that befall them.

What do the people on the ship want? Why is there a time delay? What does the island want? What is the `Dharma initiative'? Why are there alternative dimensions? What strange connection does Locke have with the island? Who is Jacob? Is this all an experiment? What is it about the cabin? These are the kind of questions that can come up in a single episode of Lost... however the catch is that you have to wait quite awhile for anything to get answered and the good news is that Lost Season 4, goes further than any of other seasons in answering questions and even appears to have resolutions for some of the characters. It has lots of surprises in store.

Season 1 was about the island. Season 2 was about the hatch. Season 3 was about `the others'. Season 4 is about escaping the island.

Season 4 is essentially one big get away from island with lots of action and lots of mayhem. It may even be the weirdest most mystical season yet with lots in the way of oddness, some of it revealed for what it is. While a whole new set of characters are introduced a lot are killed in this season and there are hardly any flashbacks but lots of flash forwards. Many of the characters even switch places and the difference between good and bad begins blurs a lot. It is welcoming to see the background stories and character build-ups reduced to this level. It is very progressive now and all forward, direct and more confident.

The main questions are still there though. Who do you side with and why? Who do you hope makes it and who do you secretly hope doesn't? Who makes it off the island and who doesn't? Characters we even thought where gone may even show up again. While the writers of this show are layering thick on the drama to near melting point they really upped the ante on the action and fight sequences.

The ethnic variations of actors and actresses gives Lost a worldwide appeal, and deservingly so, as who can say that they don't enjoy the suspense and mystery it has to offer. Lost 4 is simply one of the best seasons yet. It is a little different from previous seasons because it accelerates very quickly and the tension surpasses maybe all the other season put together. For the neigh-sayers, Lost 4 proves why Lost is simply the greatest TV show that this planet has to offer. The competition has had their hats handed to them. We will hibernate now until Season 5.

Pros
Lost goes progressive. Limited back stories, lots of flash forwards.
Action, tension and then deposits even more action
Cool new characters
They are getting off the island!... with some strings attached :)
