Officially the show that the office water cooler wants to see most.
Arriving two months after the initial release to work around UK broadcasting schedules, the second half of Losts first season is finally available. Building on previous momentum, these latter episodes provide heightened suspense, some genuine shocks (Youve got some Artz on you), the first major death and the best back-stories so far. What they dont give, though, is answers. Mystery is this shows currency, and in that area the second half really cashes in. The contents of the hatch, the islands other inhabitants, the introduction of ominous black smoke and a string of cursed numbers all thicken the already murky plot, ensuring that far-fetched fan theories continue to propagate. A growing suspicion that the creators have no more clue whats going on than we do may ultimately prove its undoing, but for now, Lost remains one of the most compelling shows on TV.
