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
After the character of Richard Alpert (played by Nestor Carbonell) was first introduced on the show, a furious internet debate arose about whether or not Carbonell was wearing eyeliner onscreen. Carbonell revealed on the Lost (2004) fifth season DVD extras that not only does he not wear eyeliner, mascara, or makeup of any kind to make his lashes and eyeline appear as dark as they do, but also the makeup artists for "Lost" actually use concealer on his lashes and under his eyes to try to tone down the natural darkness of his eyeline. He also said that the unusual appearance of his eyes caused him to get teased and bullied when he was a child. The writers, amused by the intensity of the debate, placed a reference to it in the series when Sawyer, who frequently applies nicknames to various characters, calls Alpert "eyeliner". See more »
In season 1, Charlie says to Jack that he can't swim, yet in season 3's 'Greatest Hits' it shows that his dad taught him how to swim when he was young. He also swims to the Looking Glass station with no problem. See more »
This is a really good program with very good writers. There are many subplots that keep you interested and waiting for next week for more answers to the many growing mysteries surrounding the island where a group of plane-crash survivors have wrecked.
I also like how the writers go into the history of each main character, making them more interesting for the watcher. This looks to be a hit.
There are a lot of mysterious goings-on at the island and a lot of drama between the characters of the show.
Great to have some TV that doesn't involve CSI, cops, lawyers or doctors!
