Due to a political conspiracy, an innocent man is sent to death row and his only hope is his brother, who makes it his mission to deliberately get himself sent to the same prison in order to break the both of them out, from the inside.
Life is laid bare as a group of plane crash survivors find themselves stranded on a remote Pacific island. The trauma of the crash soon becomes overshadowed by the island itself, where unseen creatures stalk the jungle, paranormal happenings abound and astonishing coincidences reveal themselves. In this unique environment emotions swell as the survivors battle their inner and outer demons, and strive to live together - so that they won't die alone. Written by
On the show, there are places and/or objects that align closely to the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The original wonders (and their counterparts on Lost (2004)) are: 1) The Great Pyramid of Giza (the inner building inside The Others' Temple is a pyramid); 2) Hanging Gardens of Babylon (the Orchid Station houses a hanging garden); 3) Colossus of Rhodes (like the Rhodes Colossus, the large Statue of Taweret that once stood on the island was also a giant, oceanside monument); 4) Temple of Artemis (The Others' Temple); 5) Mausoleum of Halicarnassus (The resting place of "Adam and Eve"); 6) Statue of Zeus at Olympia (Statue of Taweret); 7) Lighthouse of Alexandria (Jacob's lighthouse).

I've watched lots of TV in my lifetime, perhaps too much. However this is the best TV series i've seen in ages. Probably even the best ever. You just can't predict what is going to happen. Each week the show seems to tell you something new about the Island and its inhabitants. I'm on the edge of my seat waiting to find out what's going to happen, then before I know it the programme is finished and I have to wait to find out what happens next. Utterly gripping! This show is amazing and I hope they continue to make it because often fantastic US shows get cancelled because the ratings start to dip slightly or the executives think the shows are too weird. I really hope the series continues so that we get it over here in England because it is a fantastic show and I would like to have DVD's of this series so I can get all my friends hooked too.
