“4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42. Push the button and prepare to be blown away by the groundbreaking television event USA Today calls “TV’s best series.” The multiple Emmy® Award-winning drama reaches new heights in its spectacular second season as the survivors of Oceanic Flight 815 discover they are not alone in their battle against “the Others,” and a contested decision to open the hatch reveals a new realm of mystery and intrigue. Prepare yourself for the DVD experience of Season Two, complete with over 8 hours of original bonus material you can’t see anywhere else — including unaired original flashbacks — and you’ll discover for yourself why “everything happens for a reason.””
“Lost: The Complete Second Season – The Extended Experience” is rated TV-14.
There’s a pretty good selection of bonus features on this DVD. You’ll find a couple of new flashbacks featuring Locke at his father’s funeral and Shannon at her father’s funeral. You also see Shannon interviewing to be an au pair. There are also about 14 deleted scenes. Most are very minor and not missed at all from the show. A few of them feature Libby and show her interacting more with some of the other characters, including Hurley. In “Lost” on Location, a number of the episodes have ‘making of’ features where you see interviews with the cast and crew, behind the scenes footage, and more. Another cool bonus feature is “Fire + Water” which follows an episode from early script writing all the way through shooting and post-production. You really get a feel for how much work goes into every episode and you start being a little more understanding about all those repeat episodes (which was probably one of the goals of this bonus feature). You’ll also find a featurette on the making of the Hatch, another on the theories behind the mysteries of the show by fans and cast members, a blooper reel, a compilation of Sawyer’s insults, and a game showing the connections between all the characters through their flashbacks. There’s also a very bizarre Channel 4 promo commercial for “Lost” directed by David LaChapelle that looks like a perfume commercial. Each of the characters is shown disheveled and dancing while saying, “One of us is a murderer, one of us is a cop, etc etc etc.” It’s weird but fun to see. While snooping around I found an Easter Egg featurette where they described how they made Dharma Oreos for one episode. I just wish they had included a printout of the blacklight map seen on the wall of the Hatch. It was cool to see in Entertainment Weekly, but it would have been a nice DVD addition.
