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
In a season 1 episode, Boone makes a comment to Locke about "Red Shirts" on Star trek. Lock replies that he has never seen an episode of Star Trek. Terry O'Quinn, who plays John Locke, guest-starred on Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987) episode "The Pegasus" as Admiral Eric Pressman. Series creator J.J. Abrams, who also directed Lost's pilot episode, later directed Star Trek (2009), which featured Greg Grunberg (the ill-fated pilot of flight Oceanic 815 in Lost's first episode). See more »

Unless you live under a rock, you've probably heard of the hit show LOST. You've seen the previews, read the 5-star reviews, and heard the conversations about it at the water-cooler. If you haven't started watching it yet, you might wonder if you should start watching. Well, let's put it this way.
If you like shows with action, you will like LOST.
If you like shows with complex characters and interactions, you will like LOST.
If you like shows with drama, mystery, and suspense, you will like LOST.
If you like shows with humor, you will like LOST.
If you like shows where you can watch an episode twice and view it in an entirely different way, you will like LOST.
If you like shows where each and every scene has a meaning... Get the picture?
Quite simply, if you have ever liked a TV show at all, you will be hooked.
LOST is a show about a plane crash on a mysterious island. 48 people survive, but the show centers around 14, all with secrets. At first, there is confusion. But as the show goes on, friendships develop, and we learn that there is more to the island than what it seems...
The characters are fantastic--don't pay any attention to those who say the cast is so diverse it is clichéd, those are probably the same people who would have criticized it if it was all white.
In short, watch. You will be hooked, unless you're one of those nitpicky people who have a hernia if every single detail in the very first episode isn't exactly correct. Otherwise, I must ask the question... Why aren't you watching?
