I can't wait for the new season. This site losthatch had a ton of music and stuff from season 1, but they took it off for some reason.
Anyway, supposedly there are some secrets and connections in the bonus features of the season 2 DVD set, like un-aired flash-backs. So hopefully I'll get that before the new season starts. This one site has some "speical" video clip of the new season, but quicktime couldn't read the format. But thanks for the that poster, either their eye colors are different or I'm going crazy too.

Our whole family is really pumped for the new season. We love the show, but it is hard not to feel a bit taken advantage of by the Lost powers that be. They seem to put out a new episode whever they darn well please. It can get a little frustrating. Having said that, "come on season 3"!!!

I just started watching it -- I'm only like 6 episodes into season 1, and it's great so far! I'll probably catch up to the broadcast schedule sometime midway through the season. I can't wait!

I'll definitely be giving season 3 a chance, but judging by how things developed in Season 2, I'm not sure I'll finish it out. Season one was fantastic. If they had written a cohesive ending that just wrapped everything up in Season one I think it would have gone down as one of the all time classics. In season 2, no matter what the die hard fans say, I couldn't escape the feeling that these guys really didn't know where the story was going and for a lot of episodes they were just faking it. In the season one DVD interviews, one of them mentioned that they originally never figured they'd make it past six expisodes.
Everyone wanted to know what the *real* story was, or at least get some consistent clues. Lots of intriguing stuff got thrown at us which got everyone guessing, but the more and more stuff they threw, the less it all seemed connected. It was as if the writers had tons of really cool ideas for things that *could* happen, and some possibilities of what *might* be going on in the background, I still believe that they never finished writing the story before it was launched. Season two really started to fall apart for me about half way through. It did pick up towards the end where the storyline seemed to solidify, but it didn't feel like enough to bandage up all the holes in the story.
The end of season two makes it seem like the castaways are now going to be tied in with sinister people in "the real world" and that kind of ruins the whole thing on some level. (At least for me.) Ah well, I'll give it a go and who knows? It might still turn out to be great, but they did a lot of damage to themselves in season two, in my never very humble opinion, of course.

Loved season one but, as Jazzmanian says, seasons two just felt drawn out and a bit random. I hope season three makes it back to the quality of season one but I doubt it after season two.

I stopped watching Lost around the middle of season two because of the rather dull plot with nothing really happening...it's coming out on DVD here in Sweden soon and I'll be sure to pick it up. If season 2 is really good then perhaps I'll watch season 3. I just hope they'll get off that Island sometime, so they don't make 4 seasons.

Lost is the Star Wars of television for me. Despite obvious short comings here and there, the overall excellent story, character development, and mythology will make me defend it till the day I die. I just recently finished season 2 again on dvd, and I still think season 2 rocked, even if there were 3 or 4 weak episodes, but I also think that the season holds four out of the best five episodes of the show.
Has anyone seen the season 3 promo with the "PLAN YOUR ESCAPE" tagline, where Jack opens up a door and is blown away by a wave of water? That is awesome. I can't wait to have my weekly viewings of Lost again for season 3 with my friends. It really ties the week together.
Also RedHawk, you'll be sorry to know that 4 seasons and finishing off with a movie are planned.

I already watched EVERY episode of season 2 with five friends in one showing. There were only like three of four episodes of season two that let me down, but other than that, I enjoyed it a ton.
I can't wait for it to start back up, but after it does there is a one month break we have to go through. Oh well.

Two things that i didnt like about season two:
About half way the season they meet the others not one of them thought to asked how to get off the island, why their plane crashed or if they would help them!
The ending, i watch the whole series throughtout uni and somehow felt let down with the anti climax

I like the series as well. I'm just hoping it never gets drawn out past a 5th season. Normally, anything beyond that, and you start reaching for ideas.
So I'd rather a series end short and strong than long and out of steam.

damon lindelof has repeatedly said that he wants the series to go for 4 seasons, and to end with a movie. But every time he says this, he painfully adds that when the show ends isn't in his control. However, JJ Arbahms, Lindelof, and Carlton Cuse have said that they will walk away from the show if it gets too drawn out. now that would be sad.

Oh Lordy! Given the way the script writers seemed to be thrashing around wildly in season two, that's hard to even picture. But again... who knows? Maybe they'll come back strong in season three and surprise us, having had all this time to figure out exactly where the story is going and how to explain all of the oddities from the previous bits and pieces.
Let's hope so. I think season one made the show an instant classic. I would love to see it get back to that and not turn into a train wreck.

I'm with Jazz and schwar on this one. Season 1 was one of my all-time favourites - tightly paced, intelligent writing, well drawn and acted characters, intriguing mysteries, great mixture of comedy, drama, horror etc, beautiful cinematography....everything about the show was top class.
Season 2, unfortunately, was a meandering mess. Sure, if you're 100% into the mythology then that can sustain it fine, but if you're not then the cracks really start to show. Character motivation goes out the window, with several character behaving completely illogically. Chief culprit being Charlie, who went through a really, really lame 'going to the dark side' that made the writing of Anakin's conversion seem like the height of subtle sophistication. Ooh, Charlie's wearing a hood and is skulking in the shadows! He's evil! Lame.
Then you have the entire mid-section in which almost nothing happened. Sure, you can point at intricate mythology bits, but that doesn't negate the fact that the actual drama was almost non-existent. The flashbacks ceased to be related to the main story at all, unlike season 1 when they had interwoven really cleverly. The flashbacks also became frequently pointless - ooh, Charlie used to be on drugs! What a revelation.
Whether they have a proper 4-year arc planned out or not, their ability to tell that story successfully in a well-paced manner is highly dubious. I'm a massive fan of long-term television storytelling, and Lost simply isn't cutting it right now. Hopefully season 3 will get back on track, but I doubt it.

Indeed, it certainly improved massively towards the end of season 2, but it's still got a long way to go.
There's a big difference between a slow reveal/build-up and simply drifting. Season 1 got it absolutely right, but season 2 felt far too much like 'filler' material - even when clearly important things were happening, it still often felt like 'filler', due to the muddled tone and odd pacing.

Spoilers for those who've not seen all of season two!!!
Season one was great television. Season two however was a series of ongoing lows, ending in something of a high.
One of the big problems is that Lost started to suffer from ER syndrome. Characters started disappearing for several episodes at a time, and when they were back it was quite sloppily done. I can't see this getting much better with three new regulars joining next season.
The flashbacks this season weren't great. Sun and Jin's were probably the best, but their last one wasn't so hot. Locke's were decent, but primarily because of the excellent Katey Sagal. Jack's, also usually good, seemed daft given he suddenly cheats on Sarah, while she does the same to him (that was the big reason...blah). Eko's flashback almost pushed me into a coma. The big 'surprise' about Kate's past was not so much as a surprise as a 'so what'?
Also, can someone tell the producers English people need to be played by English people, not Americans and not Australians. Also London looks nothing like it did in 'Fire and Water'. Also prisons in England look nothing like they did in the season finale.
Plus, Sun is pregnant. Kind of hard to care at the moment given this won't get a pay off until season ten at the rate time's going on the show (prove me wrong guys, prove me wrong!). Plus it seems like it's going to be Jin's kid, as the island helped him in the same way it helped Locke and Rose.
My biggest gripe was killing off three regulars. Ana-Lucia was always planned and I was fine with that (plus she didn't turn out as planned and was basically damned irritating). However, I saw no point in killing off Shannon or Libby. The writer's claims they had nothing left to do with Shannon suggests to me lazy producers and sloppy and uninspired writers. Libby's death was simply pointless, especially given she's coming back next season to explain her role in Hurley and Desmond's lives (though not as a regular unfortunately). Plus Libby gave Hurley more to do than usual and was a great character and one of the few that remained optimistic. What is it with series at the moment 'upping the stakes' by killing off perfectly excellent characters just to boost ratings?
I'd like to believe the 'five year plan'. Supposedly they had one for Alias, but it was watered down after the third season when JJ Abrams was busy elsehwere. It seems to be a growing trend that when JJ Abrams is with a show, it's top notch. When he's doing something else, there are problems. Alias suffered when he was developing Lost and Lost suffered when he was directing MI3 and producing Six Degrees and What About Brian. Hopefully when he's back this season, things will be back on track, but like Tarn, I need convincing a lot.
For the moment, I'll be pinning my hopes on the fantastic Battlestar Galactica and the sublime Veronica Mars. Don't fail me Ronnie!

Buffy - no thanks, not after the last two seasons (bar a few episodes here and there) and not without Tara or Anya
Angel - only if they ignore the final two episodes, bring back Cordy (to get her back with Angel) and find a way to have Fred and Illyria about (which was the plan for season six)
Firefly - well duh

Firefly, most definitely.
I'm in the middle of the 2nd season here, and it feels like it's meandering all over the place, and losing my attention. I don't feel that urge to watch the next episode as I did before. I keep thinking it's going to pay off, but it's dragging on longer than it needs to.
I get the feeling that they've lost the drive to get off the island, and that the Others don't really feel like a threat... I hope thing will pick up towards the end.

Didn't really care for it as much as you, I guess. There was some good action, as always, but it looked suspiciously like they were really stretching the limits in trying to patch up some of the massive holes in the plot. So, failing to have any other rational explanation of who the Others actually are, or if they were involved in the Dharma Initiative, etc. the producers are now going to make them a bunch of bleeding Florida retirement home folks who were spending most of their time playing in the local bridge club before a plane rudely split in two and crasehed on their retirement island?
And no scenes at all of the rest of the castaways back on the original beach?
It may still all come together fine, and I'll keep watching, but I'm a bit dubious after that first episode.

Yeah, the neighborhood being on the island seemed perfectly Lost to me. Also, last season the first episode of the season ws devoted to only one side of the island, then the second episode to the other. It seems they are doing that again, so I don't have a problem with that.

Another snoozeville of an episode this week. The only compelling part was the last 30 seconds when Hurly recognises Desmond. If a flashback concerning Lock (one of the more compelling characters) is boring and does nothing to further the story-that is very telling. Even next week's preview look weak.
The amount and duration of the commercials is now officially ridiculous. Thank goodness I tape it and FF through them.

I will not disagree that last night's was probably the best of THIS season. I am comparing it to any show from previous seasons. This season so far has been weaksauce.
The flashbacks that I have, in the past, found particularly interesting are ones that tie directly to the story/weirdness of the island/unknown relationships with the other castaways-not just some history of one person.

I admit that up until last night, there was something odd, maybe a bit off about season 3, but I still liked it. It's just really different.
