Lost is an American serial drama television series. It follows the lives of plane crash survivors on a mysterious tropical island, after a commercial passenger jet flying between Sydney, Australia and Los Angeles, United States crashes somewhere in the South Pacific. Each episode typically features a primary storyline on the island as well as a secondary storyline from another point in a character's life. The series was created by Damon Lindelof, J. J. Abrams and Jeffrey Lieber, and is filmed primarily on location in Oahu, Hawaii. The pilot episode was first broadcast on September 22, 2004. Since then, four seasons have aired. The series is produced by ABC Studios, Bad Robot Productions and Grass Skirt Productions and airs on the ABC Network in the United States. Its soundtrack is composed by Michael Giacchino. The current executive producers are Abrams, Lindelof, Bryan Burk, Jack Bender and Carlton Cuse. Due to its large ensemble cast and the cost of filming in Hawaii, the series is one of the most expensive on television.

Critically acclaimed and a popular success, Lost garnered an average of 16 million viewers per episode on ABC during its first year. It has won numerous industry awards including the Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series in 2005, Best American Import at the British Academy Television Awards in 2005, the Golden Globe for Best Drama in 2006 and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Ensemble in a Drama Series. Reflecting its devoted fan base, the series has become a part of American popular culture with references to the story and its elements appearing in other television series, commercials, comic books, webcomics, humor magazines, a video game and song lyrics. The show's fictional universe has also been explored through tie-in novels, board and video games, and alternative reality games, The Lost Experience and Find 815.

In May 2007, it was announced that Lost would continue for its fourth, fifth, and sixth seasons, concluding with the 117th produced episode in May 2010. These three final seasons were planned to consist of 16 episodes each, running weekly in the spring uninterrupted by repeats. However, due to the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike, the fourth season was shortened to 14 episodes. To compensate, seasons five and six will each consist of seventeen episodes. Episodes from the first four seasons of the series began airing in off-network syndication in the U.S., distributed by Disney-ABC Domestic Television, on G4 and Sci Fi..

There are blogs out there that are entirely devoted to the series of Lost. An examination of the characters, the mythology, how the entire world connects. I thought that by doing a post on the series would be a discredit to what others were doing. I was saddened to hear that people didn't like the series finale of Lost. This post will not change the minds of people who did not like it, but rather provide a defense as there was no other way to end the series.    If you plan on …

There will never be a show as good at this, but I can not still to this day get over the ending

This is the final season of Lost.        When JJ Abrams and the other main writers started out the show, they had one vision.... how it would end.  Do you know of any show like that?  Most shows start out with the pilot, then if ratings are good enough, they'll go on for season after season.  Then after ratings die down, they'll finally attempt to conclude the mess of spaghetti they tangled through all the seasons.      But Lost is different.  …

Very well done and I loved the episodes with the hidden meanings explained. Sorry to see it end.

Good until I realized they weren't going to tie up any loose ends, but just wave some smoke and mirrors instead. Not thought provoking, not interesting.

I really never followed the show, so I was a bit "lost" jumping in at the end of the series. It looked interesting and hope to catch re-runs

It was a long journey and sometimes frustrating to watch but is one of the best "Sci-Fi" television series ever created.
