Lost - TV on DVD

    I just started watching the Lost TV series on DVD recently (I didn't watch them at the time in 2005 for reasons I won't go into) I had never seen a minute of it previously, but saw the Season 1 going relatively cheaply at a DVD store so grabbed it.

    I really enjoyed Season 1, it was pretty good, so went back and bought Season 2, and it has LOST me... about on the 3rd disk and I am losing interest fast, can't see myself getting into it any more.

    The whole notion of TV on DVD really appeals to me, as I cannot stand ads and hate having to wait for a whole week/year for that cliff hanger to be resolved!!! lol

    I am currently awaiting Season 4 of Madmen on DVD which will be a while, as it is only showing here (Australia) starting tomorrow night - I can't decide if I should watch the first episode tomorrow or save all that goodness up for the DVD's

    We watch a lot of TV on DVD.. how about you?

    I love Netflix for that reason - you can watch something and see if you like it before you spring for the DVD set. I just finished Torchwood, and haven't decided yet what to look at next.

    I watched the first season and it was great. Then the rest of the seasons slipped and i have not watched them. I want to watch it from the start all over again through the end.

    I just wish Netflix would upload everything instead of swapping out items every once in a while. It gets really annoying when the first two season of a show are online, third one isn't, fourth is, and fifth isn't (or cases similar to that).

    Generally I just wish they added things online over time and just kept them there.

    I plan on watching Lost sometime soon. I remember watching the first and second season but then drifted off it when other things came up and just hadn't gotten back to it since then.

    I don't think we have netflix here in Oz, and I wouldn't like to watch on my computer, but it is a great idea!!

    Torchwood had some great production values, but I didn't like Capt Jack myself.

    The Dr Whos have been great the last few years, not sure if I warm to the new Dr or not... I really like his companion Amy Pond though, she made the last season for me!!!

    yeah, I was pretty disappointed in how Lost went downhill from the first series, half way through the second season, and I just realised I don't care about ANY of the characters at all :yawn:

    Assume you have watched seasons 1 and 2 plus "Children of Earth"?

    Have you watched the new Dr Who seasons?

    After you watch Doctor Who, watch Being Human. It's awesome :D

    I've watched S1, S2 and Children of Earth. I haven't watched Dr. Who in ages, but since that's where the spinoff originated I'm going to check that out next.

    Vilandra - coincidentally someone mentioned Being Human to me earlier today, so that's two recommendations - I'll definitely check that out too.

    Onimua - yeah that irritates me about Netflix too, but I suppose they're at the mercy of whoever owns the rights to the show.

    Lost gets really weird, but I guess it also ties itself off towards the end. It's probably beneficial to read the "Lostpedia" wiki page of each episode after watching it. I found that I understood it a lot more.

    Hi Dismounted, thanks for that, I am sure it would make it easier to understand, I don't think I am sufficiently motivated enough to worry about it, but in all honesty, I don't really like any of the Characters enough to bother :p

    Do you already know how it ends, Dragonfly? Or are you completely unspoiled.

    LOST is one of the best shows every to appear on television. If you haven't watched it, you're missing out. It's a shame that you're losing interest... By season 2 I was hooked. I started watching it from the beginning (using Netflix) when it was towards the end of Season 5. I was so hooked I would literally watch like 3-4 episodes in one sitting. Got to the end of Season 5, and then watched Season 6 as it appeared on TV. The ending didn't completely satisfy me, but they had to tie it up somehow.

    But seriously, best. show. ever. :D

    (Okay, stop reading now Dragonfly - I don't see a spoiler tag on here.)

    I think it was a whole different experience if you had to suffer through it live. All the filler episodes, the endless hiatuses, the writers' strike, the move to shorter seasons... after all that hell, I wanted more of a payoff. I envy anyone who gets to watch it at their own pace on Netflix. I'd probably be less bitter about it if that's how I watched it.

    I watched it mostly on live TV. Also meant that I was behind a lot of the time (since I'm in Australia).

    Sorry, I mis-read you -- I thought you were Netflixing it previous to S5 and watching live after S5.

    Another one I guess to check out would be "Sanctuary". I wasn't that fussed about it but another reviewer down here loved it. Also there's an ITV show called "Primeval" that rocks, except season 2.

    That was me. :p And yeah, the filler episodes during season 6 kind of started to piss me off. I'm sure there was lots of filler in earlier seasons, but I didn't really notice it because I would just watch it and move on to the next episode. No frustrating week-long waits. :D

    Thankfully, Richard's episode in season 6 was probably one of the best, if not the best, episode in the entire series. :)

    (Oops - sorry!)

    Sometimes it wasn't week-long, it was weeks. (S1 and 2) And then they cut back on the number of episodes and aired the seasons nine months apart. So yeah - waaaaay less frustrating if you can choose to watch them whenever you like! :)
