Lost Season Six DVD Thoughts - August 24, 2010
The other extras include an awesome behind the scenes of the final season. It is called "THE END - Crafting A Final Season". The camera crews show a lot of footage of them shooting including cast and crew interviews. It is a really fun production and just shows what all goes into making the show and the incredible emotion knowing that they were counting down to the end. It does a great job of capturing the last moments of the show. Several cast members are shown getting their last script. Jorge Garcia is shown actually reading the script and we see his first reactions to how things were going to play out. We also see several of the cast members shooting their final scenes and getting their curtain call. It is really powerful to watch that stuff. Then, we get the reunion scene with all of them getting together for the last scene. Emotional with Lindelof shown giving a thank you and farewell speech combined into one. Lindelof and Cuse comment a lot on what it was like to wrap up the show and their thoughts on shooting the final season. If you get this DVD set, make sure to take the time to watch this featurette cause it is amazing. It will pull on your heart strings in a major way and make you even more sad to see the show go. Then, we get the piano music brought in that always rips your heart in two over the years that is included in this featurette. This was so greatly produced. Another feature is called "A Hero's Journey" which talks of how all of the characters were heroes at some point on the island with whatever they were able to do. Everyone had different ways of stepping up to the challenge. This is also a well produced feature. "See You In Another Life Brotha" looks at the flash sideways world getting comments from the cast and crew. It's very interesting with them showing the comparisons of the plane happenings from the pilot episode and putting it next to the season six premiere. Returning cast members are interviewed and there is a hilarious moment with Maggie Grace being interviewed and then Naveen Andrews venting in the background about how the show messed up with killing her off. Bloopers are always a must with DVD sets and this one is a really funny one that gets most of the cast involved in it.
I have already seen the episodes and will be watching them again. So, for now I just checked out the bonus features of what I haven't seen. I can't talk about the commentaries cause I've yet to listen to them but do look forward to it. I'm a little disappointed that there isn't commentary on the last episode cause I would love to hear the thoughts on what was occurring to see if we might get some info of things that we didn't catch on to with watching the episode the first time around. Great looking set and I highly recommend it. Wow, I miss this show even more after watching it. Thank you to all the Lost cast, crew, and everyone involved for giving us such a great show!!
