There's More Lost On the Way

Hey you, Lost fan who's on your 64th viewing of the series. We know you've preordered the Season 6 DVD set and will be camped out ready to greet the UPS man on August 24. So here's some good news: The DVD set will allow you to do more than simply watch "The End" over and over again. That's because the there will be a dozen minutes of shiny new Lost footage on that sucker.

The 12 minutes come in the form of a "new chapter," according to the Amazon.com product description. But that new chapter now has some details: It's titled "The New Man in Charge" and stars Michael Emerson (Ben) and Jorge Garcia (Hurley) as the new overlords of the island post-Jack's eye closing, according to io9.

Of the new short (photo above), Emerson tells Entertainment Weekly that "Ben is going around to Dharma installations and closing some down. There are some good surprises. It does answer some questions."

But probably not all 5,826 questions.

Cool, I guess. Maybe a little too late to provide answers now. I would prefer having them during the actual season. Ben closing down Dharma stations does not sound that exciting.

Loved seasons 1 - 5, a bit disappointed with the setup and follow-thru of the 6th. And since no one can please everybody, I accept that I am not one of the people who loved the ending, it's the statistics. I hope those who buy the season/series on optical media enjoy it, but for the conclusion I saw, I don't want to rewatch or explore a scant few more minutes, I can use my imagination as to that. Like I said, we've got a right to our own feelings and opinions, and life's short, so let's just raise the happiest squirrel babies that we can.

If you read the Lost write ups that were posted on this site during the show's run you'd know that the writer isn't a Lost hater. Some people loved Lost when it was on but hated the end because it didn't give any answers, I don't knwo id that's the case with Tim but I can see why he may hold a little grudge(like a lto of people) over the finale. but back on the topic of the news post, it seems like just another cash in to me. I'll still watch it but I'll still hate the writers for how much they lied about that there would be answers.

Who had the ridiculous idea of letting a Lost-hater report on Lost DVD news? Nice to see TV.com thinks 'news reporting' is taking a dump over the fans and the show. This site has really gone downhill in the last year or two, sadly....

People keep saying answers were given but then don't provide specifics. This indicates a lack of actual answers, if you ask me. And the fact that the producers created an extra 12-14 minutes of content but didn't show it is ridiculous. The finale was only 71 minutes, stretched over 150 minutes of airtime. Why couldn't this extra stuff have been fit into the finale? I watched this show from the beginning all the way to, pardon the pun, the end, and have determined that it's extremely overrated in the long run. Anyone who thinks this is the best show ever clearly doesn't watch much TV.

You want answers, ha!
Well how about this the Island were the writers! That pretty much explains everything. The island isnt done with you yet(The writers arent done with you yet).
If you look at the show and figure how it could end you get all the answers. However, the end was the most terrible episode i have ever seen. The script horrible, the setting horrible. It was even worse than season 3 damages finale.

Oh, and Tim! I wont follow you on twitter!

the end ruined the alt universe idea and a season of 50% purgatory was a waste of time better spent on the island. they should have save the purgatory idea for the finale and given us more plot and answers on the island. But I will probably get the dvd to go with the other 5 dvd sets i have, as i enjoyed the island portions and the alt universe until it became purgatory and not relevant to the prior episodes. And i do want to see hurley large and in charge!

i dont see how anyone who could watch the show wouldn't wanna buy the boxsets..there's just no way to get answers or the little clues and stuff just by viewing the show once..and its not just a show that is designed to be watched once..everytime i go back and re-watch it, i always discover something new and important..

Oh, quit whining about the ending of Lost. The last season answered a whole lot more of the questions than you think, if you were actually paying attention instead of just waiting for some magic fairy to come down from the sky and give some lame techno-babble-ish explanation of exactly what the island is. Even if the last episode wasn't the best, the rest of the season was spectacular.
