We’ve heard a lot about dirty shenanigans in the financial sector over the last few years, but if you really want to know about a high-risk investment that hardly ever pays off, forget about the Ponzi scheme — look no further than the serialized television drama.
Much as we all love to snigger at the stereotype of the housewife or credulous college student weeping over her soap opera, there are good reasons that shows like General Hospital have lasted for decades, and chief among them is the unique pleasure of following characters and storylines over an extended period of time. The networks dress it up in different outfits each fall, but it’s that same enduring promise that lures viewers into new serialized series every year, and if you’re any kind of television fan, you’re well acquainted with the pain of giving yourself over to a show’s arc, »

Last Tuesday Lost: The Complete Collection and Lost: Season Six hit Blu-ray Disc and DVD for the first time.
Just because Lost's grand finale is on store shelves doesn't mean Disney and ABC aren't done promoting it. To support the new releases are these series of seven clips taken from the bonus features found on both new sets. More specifically they come from Lost on Location; See You in Another Life, Brotha; A Hero's Journey; and The End: Crafting a Final Season.
In case you missed it, here's our review of Lost: The Complete Collection on Blu-ray.
Purchase Lost: The Complete Collection or Lost: Season Six on Blu-ray or DVD at Amazon.com.
Chicago – A Blu-ray review of the controversial final season of “Lost” is not the place to get into arguments over the quality of the actual finale, so I’ll get my opinion out of the way quickly and then we can discuss the Blu-ray release more than the ending specifically — the final season of “Lost” is arguably the best final season of any program ever and the last episode is the perfect bookend for a show too ambitious to be truly influential. I promise to get into that more in coverage of the upcoming Emmys and in “Best of the Year” features in a few months. For now, let’s move on to the best TV Blu-ray of the season, even if you disagree with my opinion of the quality of the finale or the overall show.
Blu-Ray Rating: 4.5/5.0
The 16 episodes (802 minutes) of “Lost: The Complete Sixth and Final »
Lost: The Complete Collection on Blu-ray is likely your one and only chance to acquire the entire six-season run of ABC's hit show in a single package. After the unexpected series finale you'll probably want to re-watch every episode to pick up on cues to where the show was heading early on.
It is hard for someone like myself whom has watched Lost on-air since season one to imagine someone else not having seen a single episode yet. For them, or perhaps even you, this collection offers up the opportunity to play through the entire series without interruption and in the best possible presentation available. That's a win-win scenario no matter which way you spin it.
I vowed I would never become a Twit. Now I have Tweeted nearly 10,000 Tweets. I said Twitter represented the end of civilization. It now represents a part of the civilization I live in. I said it was impossible to think of great writing in terms of 140 characters. I have been humbled by a mother of three in New Delhi. I said I feared I would become addicted. I was correct.
Twitter is now a part of my daystream. I check in first thing every morning, and return at least once an hour until bedtime. I'm offline, of course, during movies, and don't even usually take my iPhone. The only tweeting I've done with mobile devices was when our internet went down one day, and when my laptop was lost in Cannes. But you can be sure that before I write the next three paragraphs I will tweet something.
