    For those of you interested in the new channel 4 series "lost".

    It will soon be avalable on Region 1 DVD.

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00005JNOG/qid%3D1115624840/sr%3D1-1/ref%3Dsr%5F1%5F1/102-5675420-4019330?v=glance&s=dvd

    From Aint it cool news.

    Here’s some of what you apparently get when the DVD streets in about a month:
    DISC 1
    * “Pilot” commentary by creator-writer-director J.J. Abrams, creator-writer Damon Lindelhof and non-writing executive producer Bryan Burk. The commentary is unusual in that it lasts longer than the actual episode; through the miracle of “branching” DVD technology, Abrams is able to (if you’re watching in “commentary mode”), stop the episode and switch to behind-the-scenes footage, over which he continues to comment at length about certain aspects of the episode.
    * “Walkabout” commentary by actor Terry O’Quinn, writer David Fury and director Jack Bender.
    * If you have a DVD-ROM drive, you can access the “Lost Scriptscanner,” which allows you read the entire pilot script while following along with the episode. You can click on any line of dialogue in the script in immediately interact with that scene.
    * Widescreen versions of “Pilot,” “Tabula Rasa” and “Walkabout.”
    * Commercials! An almost-3-minute-long trailer for the bigscreen Dec. 9 release “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe,” plugs for the DVD releases of “Lost” 1.x, “Desperate Housewives” 1.x, “Alias” 4.x “Scrubs” 2.x “Home Improvement” 3.x, and Golden Girls” 3.x, and that promo we keep seeing for the second season of “Lost” on ABC.
    DISC 2
    * “The Moth” commentary by actor Dominic Monaghan, executive producer Damon Lindelhof and executive producer Bryan Burk.
    * Widescreen versions of “White Rabbit,” “House of the Rising Sun,” “The Moth” and “Confidence Man.”
    DISC 3
    * Widescreen versions of “Solitary,” “Raised by Another,” “Al The Best Cowboys Have Daddy Issues” and “Whatever the Case May Be.”
    DISC 4
    * “Hearts and Minds” commentary by actors Maggie Grace and Ian Sommerhalder and writers Carlton Cuse and Javier Grillo-Marxuach.
    * Widescreen versions of “Hearts and Minds,” “Special,” “Homecoming” and “Outlaws.”
    DISC 5
    * Widescreen versions of “… In Translation,” “Numbers,” “Deus Ex Machina” and “Do No Harm.”
    DISC 6
    * Widescreen versions of “The Greater Good,” “Born To Run” and “Exodus.”
    DISC 7
    The seventh disc is all extras, and is divided into three sections: “Departure,” “Tales From the Island” and “Lost Revealed.”
    “Departure” includes:
    * “The Genesis of Lost” (8:40): A documentary in which ABC exec Lloyd Braun reveals he wanted to make “Castaway: The Series.” J.J. Abramas reveals how he built on that idea.
    * “Designing a Disaster” (7:59): A documentary detailing, among other things, how they got the middle part of a widebody jet from a plane graveyard in the Mojave Desert to a beach in Oahu, and how they got the front of the same widebody to a jungle on the same island. All in six weeks.
    * “Before They Were Lost” (22:55): A documentary examining the unusual “Lost” casting process, which saw the show’s masterminds creating new regular characters tailored to actors they met and liked. Hurley, Sayid, Sun and Jin were among those unmentioned in the original outline ABC bought. We’re reminded that the original plan was to have Michael Keaton play Jack, and that Kate was originally supposed to emerge as the leader of the survivors.
    * “Audition Tapes” (27:34): We see all 13 of the 14 of the regulars (Terry O’Quinn had already worked extensively with Abrams on “Alias”) run through some script pages. We get to see Yunjin Kim read for Kate. We get to see Matthew Fox, Dominic Monaghan and even Jorge Garcia play Sawyer.
    * “Welcome To Oahu: The Making of the Pilot” (33:20): This is largely a how-they-did-it doc, dealing with those horrifying mid-flight scenes, and the monster in the trees, and the polar bear, and the guy-gets-sucked-into-a-jet engine gag, and other things. (Some interesting stuff about the series’ strange musical score too.)
    * “The Art of Matthew Fox” (6:07): Fox discusses the many photos he took on the set as sad music plays.
    * “Lost@Comicon” (1:50): A look at how high anticipation was for the series, even months prior to its premiere, thanks largely to buzz on the Internet.
    “Tales From the Island” includes:
    * “Lost: On Location” offers short behind-the-scenes documentaries about individual episodes, including “House of the Rising Sun” (7:19), “Confidence Man” (4:24), “All The Best Cowboys Have Daddy Issues” (4:56), “Whatever The Case May Be” (2:58), “Hearts and Minds” (6:20), “Special” (3:05) and the finale, “Exodus” (9:21), plus “The Trouble With Boars” (5:09), a look at the difficulties wrangling the animals during several episodes.
    * “On Set With Jimmy Kimmel” (7:15) sees the host of ABC’s late-night talk show visit the cast in Hawaii.
    * “Backstage With Drive Shaft” (6:40) teaches us, among other things, how a snippet of dialogue from the Phil Donahue show became the lyrics of Charlie’s biggest hit.
    “Lost Revealed” includes:
    * “The Lost Flashbacks” are two scenes cut from “Exodus.” One deals with Claire and the doomed pilot discussing psychics (3:07); the other deals with Sayid buying a necktie to impress Nadia (1:28).
    * “Deleted Scenes” include “Smoking” (1:10) with Charlie and Sawyer having a meeting of the minds, “Chicken or Lasagna” (0:43) with Hurley trying to engage a silent Locke, “Kate and Sayid” (1:09) with one realizing something about the other, “The Climb” (2:02) with Shannon’s hilarious reaction to Charlie’s attempt to impress her, “The Tell” (1:04) with Locke and Walt discussing liars, and “Partners” (0:55) with Boone and Shannon visually contrasting Sun and a handcuffed Jin.
    * “Bloopers From The Set” (4:17) is lots of flubbed lines and falling down.
    * “Live From The Museum of Television and Radio” (10:56) presents comic highlights from last March’s Paley Festival Q&A with Abrams and nine members of the cast.

    Got a week off in September, didn't like the idea but I can see the benefit now.
    I'll need a week to rewatch the show and then all the commentaries and extras and then a House marathon at the weekend:)

    The worst episode of lost is this one. Its a recap of the last 20 or so episodes. It wasn't really needed but i guess they wanted to fill in some space. I would of prefered a normal episode. :smashin:

    I never bothered to get that one since it was not part of the actual show and just a filler during one of the seemingly endless breaks the network takes:)

    Peronally the only episode I will be FF through quite a bit will be no15 "Homecoming", didn't need a second Charlie ep.

    I've just borrowed the whole of season 1 from a friend of mine. I'll start watching this in earnest from next week (after BB!) :)

    At least you don't live in the Netherlands where networks can really mess up things.

    I was impressed they picked it up pretty quickly over here. But they broadcast in 4:3 and stopped in the middle of the season. They will continue when season 2 starts in the U.S. Luckily they broadcast it in right order some shows (Dead Zone, Simpsons) are broadcast with the first eps. right and then they mess it up.

    No wonder more and more (young) people are watching less TV. Thanks to bittorrent and usenet.

    Download TV is the future. I have almost given up watching normal tv. Everything takes so long to reach uk/europe. The only programs I watch on normal tv is top gear, eastenders and corrie. Its a bit of a waste paying for the full sky sub but I still do so.

    :D

    The great thing about boxsets (and the reason I will continue to buy them even after downloading a show) is the PQ and of course the extras which for a fan are pure gold.
    Having said that there are times extras are a neglected aspect (BSG R2 anyone:) ).

    If the show is good I buy the boxset. I like to collect. :thumbsup:

    Mind you it is a hard choice when you have a HD copy. :confused:

    I mainly use my pc but I have this for the bedroom and it plays everything even packed bitstream. There isn't a disc it hasn't played.

    Since it's shot on film and aired in HD in the U.S. will there eventually be a HD box release?

    True:)

    Still the extras are often worth the price alone and certainly hurt a boxset if they are missing even if you could get commentaries via download (BSG and Atlantis).

    The choice between HD and DVD is going to get tougher, atm I am limited to HD only on one TV but maybe networking will help matters when I get a second HD display:)
    Mind you I would be rather tempted with a genuine retail HD boxset release which would solve everything (at a price).

    Not on HD cam?
    Hmmm, seems strange these days since other shows have embraced digital tape based cameras with huge cost savings.

    Still either way I would consider a HD boxset a given depending upon how fast the take up of either HD-DVD or Blu-ray is since TV content may take a back seat to movie releases.

    I had the fun of Laserdisc between VHS and DVD, great days.

    Mind you the family that took my LD collection off my hands got a bargain but even to this day there are still films I had on VHS that were never on LD and I've never bought on DVD.

    So many films so little money:)

    I too have movies on VHS which arent on dvd mimic, relic are two off the top of my head. The reason I didnt rebuy was they werent good enough to warrent the cash. In the 5.5 years i have had dvds I have never watched the VHS versions so I guess I didnt need to re-buy. In fact I dont have a vhs player connected anymore. I have 4 in the wardrobe though. :suicide:
