Sorting Out the “LOST” DVDs
The question is, which bonus discs and goodies come with which set?
As far as the standard offerings go, both the Season Six and Complete Series sets offer a ton of bonus features. And both come with “The New Man In Charge,” the 12-minute epilogue offering a taste of what comes next for some of our beloved characters. But the Complete Series comes with “one full disc of never-before-seen content,” in addition to assorted collectible items (an island replica, an ankh, a Senet game and a black light to find clues in an exclusive episode guide).
Of course, $150 to $200 is a lot to spend to get an extra disc.
But according to various online reports, such as this forum thread passed along by @DonaldJr and @theJDman on Twitter, the Blu-Ray version of the Season Six set at Best Buy apparently comes with the bonus disc from in the Compete Series set.
(The DVD version of the Season Six set at Best Buy does, indeed, come with the extra disc of stuff only available at Best Buy, but I gather that’s not nearly as exciting.)
If you’ve got a Blu-Ray player but shudder at the prospect of laying out the cash for the Complete Series, it looks like the Season Six Blu-Ray set at Best Buy is a great deal. For about $50, you get the final season of “LOST” and the usual goodies, plus the extra disc from the Complete Series set.
For those who crave more details, let’s see if I can break it down further.
The Complete Collection bonus disc (apparently included in the Best Buy Season Six Blu-Ray set, and mis-labeled as “Lost Season 6 Exclusive Bonus Disc”) includes:
- Letting Go
- Artifacts of the Island
- Planet Lost
- Swan Song
- Lost on Location
- Lost Slapdowns
- Deleted Scenes
- More from the Series
- Senet Feature (Ankh Symbol)
The “Exclusive Bonus Footage” that comes on the Best Buy Season Six DVD set includes five featurettes:
- Chicken Heaven
- Sayid Vs. Dogen
- Lost Live: The Final Concert
- Lost On Location: Sundown
- Lost On Location: Dr. Linus
