REVIEW: The fifth season
of "Lost" proof to be the best season in the series,
setting up the show for a must see season six, making it the
best television shows in recent years. Seventeen explosive
episodes that kept audiences ones again guessing as to what the
final outcome of the series will be. Just in time for the
holidays and a month and half from the premiere of season five,

special features that will get fans in the right track to a
highly anticipated season five.

the fifth season, every episode is important. Most likely thanks
to the writers' strike that cut the season short, forcing the
writers to add extra quality to the story of every episode.

question in these 17 episodes, that I found myself watching the
season entirely and I think I'm ready for the final season. The
good thing is that February 2, 2010 is just around the corner

English and 5.1 Dolby Digital in Spanish and French that provides a nice complement to the picture. It also
