Chicago – Rivaling “24” and “The Simpsons” as the TV series with the most in-depth, remarkable season DVD sets, “Lost” continues to impress with the Blu-Ray release of season four, a technically flawless presentation with a series of unique special features that should impress casual fans and make the hardcore ones drool.
The end of the third season of “Lost” revealed that Jack and Kate made it off the island and that life was not too good on the mainland. The revelation opened the door for a reinvigoration of the series in season four, returning it to the ranks of the best programs on television. As audiences learned more and more about the fate of the inhabitants of the “Lost” island, the sometimes rambling quality of the show started to come into focus. Viewers who complained that the “Lost” writers were making it up as they went along felt more confident that »

"Lost" is back.
Well, to be specific, “Lost” is leaving — temporarily. It has one more outing 8 p.m. Thursday on Wls-Ch. 7, then the ABC drama takes a break until it returns with five additional episodes starting April 24.
What I mean is, “Lost” is back. It’s back to being a fascinating, meaningful, surprising, clever, infuriating and utterly unmissable drama. It’s back to being a show that keeps you up past your bedtime talking to your fellow couch potatoes, deciphering clues and scanning message boards for insightful comments or ranting about your least favorite plot twist.
[A heads up: The rest of this review discusses the first 7 episodes of "Lost's" Season 4. If you don't want to know plot details of those episodes, which have already aired, exit here. There are no spoilers for future episodes.]
I’ve even been noodling a theory about “Lost,” for goodness’ sake, a wild guess about what the island is and what all the strange hints and occurrences mean (The short version of my vague theory: The island is both a time portal and a midpoint between life and death). But who had the »
Yunjin Kim, Lost For the first time in the history of this show, Lost made me cry last night. I had a sneaking suspicion as to what was going to happen when Sun (Yunjin Kim) saw Jin (Daniel Dae Kim) walk by while delivering her baby, but I didn't want to believe it. I refused to accept what I knew was coming.
Perhaps I'm an idiot, because I didn't fully put it together until Hurley (Jorge Garcia) arrived. Lost got me. When Jin said he'd only been married for two months, I had no idea what was happening. Honestly, I thought, for some reason, after getting off the island, Sun and Jin split up and he got remarried. Either I'm that gullible, or the Lost writers have gotten that much better at deception.
Jin's death hit me hard, »
Lost.aspx">Lost's willingness to break formula is something I've discussed a lot in this space. But, the show gives me no choice, especially after an episode like last night. Lost, for the first time, unleashed a dual flash back/flash forward last night and I have to admit that they tricked me. There's not been one Jin and Sun episode I haven't enjoyed, which is both a testament to the depth of those two characters and the abilities of Daniel Dae Kim and Yunjin Kim. Yunjin, especially, gave a moving, Emmy-worthy performance throughout the episode, both on the island and off. Considering how much us Lost fans tend to focus on huge twists, the extensive Lost mythology and baffling cliffhangers, it's nice to be reminded that it's the characters who make the series what it is. If we didn't care about these people and their fates, Lost wouldn't amount to much of anything. »
