Following a horrific plane crash, 48 survivors of Oceanic Flight 815 from Sydney, Australia to Los Angeles, California, USA, find themselves on an uncharted tropical island in the South Pacific Ocean that is full of secrets, as they come to learn.

19 November 2018 | by matiasbockermanSee all my reviews

I started to watch this second time. It's been two years when I watched this very first time. Im still thrilled what happens next waiting the backround stories of the charters and watch how they grow and involve. We have not nothing like this anymore, this is a greatest idea a survivorstory series.
