Show Summary

After Oceanic Air Flight 815 tears apart in mid-air and crashes on a Pacific island on September 22nd 2004, its survivors are forced to find inner strength they never knew they had in order to survive. But they discover that the island holds many secrets, including a mysterious smoke monster, polar bears, housing with electricity and hot & cold running water, a group of island residents known as "The Others," and a mysterious man named Jacob. The survivors also find signs of those who came to the island before them, including a 19th century sailing ship called The Black Rock and the ruins of an ancient statue, as well as bunkers belonging to the DHARMA Initiative -- a group of scientific researchers who inhabited the island in the recent past. Lost has won a Golden Globe, 10 Saturn Awards and 10 Emmy Awards.

    • The Philosophy of Lost is key to understanding

      10
      My wife and I started watching lost a little over a year ago and finished it a about a week ago. Throughout the series we both fell in love with it so much it is now our favorite show. We came across it on Netflix and We decided to give it a chance after seeing my oldest brother obsess over it till "the end". After he watched the last ep on season 6 his love faded like many fans that followed the show over the years. When everything was said and done him and many fans felt for lack of a better words lost. Knowing these view points from the start we payed close attention to every ep. By the time we got to the last ep we were so afraid the show we've grown to love so much would end in disappointment like the many fans before us. To both of our surprise it gave us the closure we needed not only that but for the most part all of our questions were answered. From the island itself, the magnetism it generates, everyone that was ever on the island and the protectors of the island. For the most part it was all answered thoughtout the series if you pay close attention. The only question that went unanswered was how the dharma inquisitive found the island in the first place and what ever happend to Aaron after leaving the island. All we know is that Katte raised him until 10 years old I think correct me if I'm wrong. Other then these minor questions the series covered all the major questions if I'm not mistaken. Although after talking to my oldest brother today I was able to answer all his questions expect the two above. Halfway though our conversation it occurred to me it's been over a decade since he sat down and actually watched the show. So the thing that my wife and I noticed is many of the people like my brother that didn't understand the show was the ones that watched it week by week or as every season was released. If we would of watched it like that we would of been confused as well. Lost is not a very easy show to understand no matter how you watch it the one thing that helped us was keeping an open mind throughout it all. What I mean by keeping an open mind is by not over complicating some of the concepts or problems that are introduced. If your still having trouble understanding there is one last thing that was key to helping me. As one may notice the main characters of the show are all named after some of the greatest philosopher's that ever lived. This goes without saying the character's are supposed to represent these great philosopher's. With that comes the understanding of each individual philosopher which helped me understand why they act and do the things they do during the show. There's is one last key concept that is really important to understanding the show. That is that the island is a real concept created by another renowned philosopher. The only thing is the island itself was the writers idea. the geography of the island is what suppose to represent the concept the philosopher created. If you Google the philosophy of lost it will tell you about the philosopher's and the concepts that the show brought to life. I hope this brings some kind of understanding or at least helps you understand what the writers were doing when creating the show. :-)moreless
    • Give me a break

      2.5
      Well after binge watching for a few weeks on Netflix I have to give Lost a pretty low rating. The show had potential but drifted off into a labyrinth of nonsensical garbage. I began watching the show after suggestions from friends and family and will forever question their recommendations in the future. Fortunately I had hours and hours of mundane computer work to do otherwise I would be incredibly irritated I wasted so much time on this series. Cue suspenseful climatic sound, zoom in on facial expression, and cut to commercial break/flashback.... and repeat repeat repeat. Quick, run from the mysterious smoke monster that apparently plays the trumpet. But first, lets cut back in time about a young boy getting yelled at by his father and is forever scared. Blah. After way too long of time we discover the show is some poor attempt on afterlife, deeper meaning, purgatory type crap... and just down right bad. My apologies to all you hardcore fans but let's get real; 9-10 stars? As much as I thought the show was garbage, I won't give it 1 star but it will get no more than 3 because it doesn't deserve it. Cannot believe all the hype for this show. Could certainly have used more creative writing and plot planning rather than the slew of nonsense. I wouldn't suggest starting/watching this series and if you do, stop at season 1.moreless
    • Had me guessing the whole time!

      9.0
      I finally just finished this show after 2 months of binge watching and can I say that this show had it all? From the Pilot to the finale I had questions the whole time, after I satched "The End", I was thinking about that show the whole day, Lost consumed my life for 3 months!! I don't know what to do with my time now, this show is very binge worthy, perfect acting from a great cast, with a perfect plot with MANY twists and turns all the way from the pilot to the finale, I give this show a 9.3/10!moreless

    • I miss Lost

      I still miss the show. Season 6 was not that good and though I had liked the finale I always thought, just like millions of viewers, Lost had deserved a better ending. It has been 11 years since it first aired! I am planing to watch it for the 2nd time
