After discovering a sailboat just offshore containing former hatch oversee Desmond, Jack and Sayid come up with a plan to confront "The Others" and hopefully get Walt back. Meanwhile, Eko and Locke ...
Due to a political conspiracy, an innocent man is sent to death row and his only hope is his brother, who makes it his mission to deliberately get himself sent to the same prison in order to break the both of them out, from the inside.
The past, present, and future live's of surviving Oceanic Flight 815 passengers are dramatically intertwined as a fight for survival ensues in a quest for answers after crashlanding on a mysterious island. Each discovery prompts yet more secrets, as the hastily-formed colony search for a way off the island, or is this their home? Written by
Evangeline Lilly was one of the last actors to be cast for the show, but the fact that she is a Canadian citizen gave the producers concern that she might not be able to obtain the appropriate U.S. employment visa that would grant her permission to stay in the country long enough to shoot the entire series. They pushed back all of Kate's scenes when they were shooting the pilot, just to be sure that they could get the proper employment visa, a category "O-1" for "artists of extraordinary ability in arts, science, education, business or athletics" for Lilly. As her body of work as an actor was not extensive at the time she was cast, they had a difficult time proving to the USCIS (formerly known as the INS) that Lilly was deserving of this classification as an "artist of extraordinary ability". It wasn't until they had shot almost every scene without the Kate character that she was finally granted the O-1 visa and signed on. That same day she was put on a plane in Canada and flown directly to Hawaii for the shooting. See more »

I've watched lots of TV in my lifetime, perhaps too much. However this
is the best TV series i've seen in ages. Probably even the best ever.
You just can't predict what is going to happen. Each week the show
seems to tell you something new about the Island and its inhabitants.
I'm on the edge of my seat waiting to find out what's going to happen,
then before I know it the programme is finished and I have to wait to
find out what happens next. Utterly gripping! This show is amazing and
I hope they continue to make it because often fantastic US shows get
cancelled because the ratings start to dip slightly or the executives
think the shows are too weird. I really hope the series continues so
that we get it over here in England because it is a fantastic show and
I would like to have DVD's of this series so I can get all my friends
