Lost Episodes of Lost

Well, that solves that problem (that problem being that I wasn’t all that captivated by the end of Season 4 of Lost).

My wife and I tried watching Season 5 of Lost when it was on TV, but after watching the first 4 seasons straight through, we couldn’t really handle waiting a week in between episodes. In addition, I got really sick one week and fell asleep in the middle of – I believe it was – episode 5. So, after that, we just decided to wait until the season was over and watch it straight through like we did before.

Oops.

Turns out ABC decided to pull the idiot move of only making a certain number of episodes available online (on what was probably a rolling basis – i.e., only 6 episodes available at a time with the least recent removed when a new ones is added). Well, guess what ABC? Now we’re not going to watch Lost. That’s it. Done.

Why?

mBurningMoneyBrownWell, aside from my boiling hatred for ABC for making the decision to do it the way they did, the DVDs don’t come out until December (according to Amazon), and even if we wait until then, we would only get one DVD at a time from Netflix. I refuse to buy TV series on DVD while I am also paying for a subscription to Netflix. Also, it always feels like a waste of time having to watch four episodes and then mail back the DVD to get the next four. Especially when I could just watch them whenever I wanted if they were available online, and get other movies from Netflix that aren’t online. Finally, I sure as H E double hockey sticks am not going to pay $49.99 to buy Season 5 on iTunes (doesn’t look like you can even buy an online version on Amazon).

So, when you add all that those hurdles to the fact that I wasn’t anticipating it like I currently am the premieres of Dollhouse, Fringe, Terminator: TSCC, and Chuck (which won’t be until March :(), then I’m content (though still upset with ABC) to let sleeping dogs lie.

    I'm not positive but I THINK they might be up on Netflix streaming. I just noticed they were streaming several seasons but didn't check to see if 5 was one of the seasons. And Terminator: TSCC was cancelled so that's one less premiere. :( Oh and the end of Season 5 was STELLAR.

      I can save it to my DVD queue on Netflix, but that's it. Like I said, the DVDs don't come out until December, so I doubt it'll be available on Netflix before then.I'm very disappointed about TSCC… I still want to watch Journeyman, though – another canceled show – so I can fill in with that one.

    Hey, there’s this nifty new little invention called a DVD recorder. It means you can record tv shows you don’t want to miss and can’t watch at the broadcast times. There’s DVR too.  I loved Lost, nearly all of it. I went off it in season 4 and decided to stop watching, then I accidentally caught a clip of season 5 while I was channel hopping and it was WOW! So I caught up on my missed episodes and was hooked again. I hated the very last episode, the grand finale though. Lost of people say they loved it but for me it was very, very disappointing.
