Lost Season 5 Blu-ray and DVD Exclusives 267




LOST: The Complete Fifth Season on Blu-ray and DVD will be coming out in two weeks on December 8th. There are currently two different versions available: the standard sets, or the fantastic Dharma Initiative Orientation Kits. Both versions are available in Blu-ray or DVD, but keep in mind that only the Blu-ray editions will feature the Lost University materials.

Amazon has a virtual unboxing video of the Dharma Initiative Orientation Kit contents, which also shows a replica Geronimo Jackson LP.

To help promote this upcoming S5 release, Buena Vista Home Entertainment has sent over these exclusive LOST promotional photos:



UPDATE: Here is a deleted scene from Lost Season 5:

Best Buy has the S5 DI Blue-Ray set for $77.99. I think that is lowest price I've seen on Blue-Ray Dharma Initiative set.

charter321 said...

I will buy the standard edition bluray and then buy the whole set when they make the Season 1-6 bluray bundle.

Jesse t said...

This looks great and is so tempting but I'm still waiting for the ultimate complete season boxset!

andalone said...

lol - I'll most like buy that too.

Just Thinking said...

Have been waiting for them to finalize what's on the DI kit. Still says "subject to change".

maven said...

Tempting...tempting!

and everybody goes out to re-purchase a VCR...

JPL said...

Thankfully they didn't release it on Beta in keeping with the 70's!

Sayid'sgirl said...

I have a vcr/dvd player recorder.
But I'm not planing on buying this.

kiwilostie said...

Ive been well and truly sucked in by the marketing machine - Im getting both S5 normal DVD sets, and also will probably buy the complete Blu-ray S1-6 when its out! Then I have to get a Blu-ray Player (or hopefully by then there will be a Blu-ray player/recorder).

mungonna said...

I don't kno..that " special" looks like it went thru an " incident" or two. The tape and dvd's probably got erased...heck..maybe even radioactive!!

Sandman90 said...

And I just donated my pop-top VHS player to the Salvation Army!

Ellen said...

Welcome back Maven, and happy belated b'day to Capcom!
xxoo

Sandman90 said...

MEL, I think they call that Incident-chic...

maven said...

Thanks, Ellen (and everyone). I still have a VCR/DVD player. You can record a VCR onto a DVD. But not sure yet about getting the DI set.

Capcom said...

"Incident-chic", that's one for the Lost archives! That's awesome. X-D

Thanks Ellen!

mungonna said...

Incident Chic..why Sandman..I think you are on to something there! I..I can see it now..tee shirts..hoodies,,jeans,,and,,and,,serial numbered limited edition signed watermarked and stained sheets of poster board...heck..why stop there?..Vinyl Toys!!...INCIDENT... CHIC!!

mungonna said...

okay..okay, okay,, if ya ain't sold on it yet,,this'll do it..be the first on the block with this folks,,hold on to yur boot straps..

yea!!..just a smudge here and there,,maybe in the shape of a hand print or something,,just a smattering or a faint over all haze..Glow In The DARK!!!Oh YEEaaa! We can get'em made in China at no extra cost!!..WoooHUU...INCIDENT CHIC!!

Dennis said...

One thing you can't see in this picture, but is shown in the Amazon video, is a Geronimo Jackson CD that looks like an LP

ReverendMilo said...

I have had it on next day delivery order since August 5th.

Pre-order Amazon guarantee means that I am guaranteed the lowest price Amazon offers it at between my order date and the end of release day.

right now I am sitting at $87.99, but I expect it to drop a bit.

Nice thing is - Amazon ships the day before release most of the time, and the distribution hub is not far. I frequently get Tuesday new release DVD's on Monday evening when I choose 1 day shipping.

vabauer said...

I'm very tempted just like everyone, but again just like everyone I keep holding out for THE box that hopefully will come out a year from now, although I have my doubts since Darlton have said they will take an immediate, indefinite break after the series finale. Hopefully they can come bak and help deliver the Ultimate Lost box for all of us.

By the way, for those of you waiting to jump on the Bluray train, I took my time and just recently made the move, I also got a new Netflix account for Bluray and I'm currently slowly rewatching Lost, I have to tell you, it is AWESOME, the details are amazing and especially all beach scenes are astounding, it's truly a worthwhile experience if you can get yourself a Xmas present.

Amy Lynn said...

I'll be picking up my copy on Tuesday evening the 8th.

mungonna said...

Vabauer YOU ARE THE MAN!! Thank s for Inspiring me to the tag line for INCIDENT CHIC.. get this..and I owe it to you Vman..

INCIDENT CHIC!! Like you are being seen in Blu Ray!!....HUH??Is that it or what?

Dennis said...

vabauer said... "although I have my doubts since Darlton have said they will take an immediate, indefinite break after the series finale. Hopefully they can come bak and help deliver the Ultimate Lost box for all of us."

Since the episodes are completed way before they air, they will have plenty of time to get the Season 6 Blu-rays and DVDs ready before they go on LOST vacation...

ObFuSc8 said...

Hey ARGers!

Olly Moss has a poster that goes on sale tomorrow aw well:

A Life Well Wasted: Out Tomorrow

Dennis said...

Update:
Here is the screenshot of the Geronimo Jackson CD

kiwilostie said...

Dennis, that looks like an actual vinyl? does it say its a CD?

Ob, whats ALWW?

mungonna said...

Ob8...beauty..beauty beauty! You've closed the loop for me. Thanks so very much. See..its like this..INCIDENT CHIC needs more than just watermarks and stains and dents and stuff,,I mean,,we're talking about stuff that didn't stand the test of Time..like the Dharma Iniative. Unless you want to count some clown selling used cars in Dubai if ya know what I mean. So..Olly's new poster there did the trick. Yeppers!..this is so cool, get this..the Incident Chic trademarked watermark, stains, dents and glow in the dark pattern overlaid on things that didn't pass the test of Time...yea..like..the Edsel..or ..Tricky Dick..or..Enron..or..The Backstreet Boys..or..unprotected sex..or..Lou Ferrigno..or...well, you know what I mean? Each had a weak point that brought them asunder..So ya put one of them on the tee shirt ..and then put the INCIDENT CHIC trademarked pattern over it..VOILA!! Personal statement for you..and money maker for us!!...INCIDENT CHIC!

ObFuSc8 said...

Kiwi, The website says it's an internet radio show/podcast about video games, I think hosted by Robert Ashley.

Olly Moss has done other poster for ALWW -- look here.

Avondale Blog said...

Do both versions have Lost university??? I really want to participate in LU. I've already signed up. What's the Dharma Initiative Orientation about?? I also have yet to buy a BluRay DVD player. Can you also play regular DVDs on it, or will I need to keep my current DVD player for non-BluRay DVDs??? so much to figure out.

ObFuSc8 said...

Thanks Dennis -- Geronimo Jackson!

The DVD covers also look like the old floppy discs.

ObFuSc8 said...

Avondale Blog -- A Blu-Ray player will play standard DVDs as well as Blu-Ray discs and should upconvert standard DVDs. Of course it wouldn't play the competing format HD-DVD (unless it's one of the dual HD-DVD/Blu-Ray players).

Avondale Blog said...

Thanks obfusc8. I'm probably going to buy one this weekend - hopefully at a reasonable (cheap) price. Surely there will be some sales for T'Giving weekend!

kiwilostie said...

Ob, can you still get HD-DVD? I thought it lost the beta/vhs type war, and had been dropped. Cant get it down this way.

Sam G said...

Ahhhhh! December. Not so far away anymore.

Dennis said...

No, HD-DVD officially died a while ago - Blu-ray is the High-Def winner.

You should be able to find plenty of Blu-ray players this Black Friday for under $100.

Personally, I bought a Playstation 3 ($299), which is actually the best Blu-ray player, plus you can play games (LittleBigPlanet FTW!)

maven said...

Yes, I agree with you Dennis...the PS3 is a great Blu-Ray player. It upcoverts regular DVD's beautifully! It's difficult to tell my LOST DVD's from the Blu-Ray ones.

Is Bluray really that much better? I have a 46" HD TV, and I can't imagine how anything could look better than the upconverted DVDs.

ObFuSc8 said...

Yeah, I guess should have typed the now defunct competing format. ;)

mungonna said...

Ya kno what..we're gonna take this INCIDENT CHIC beyond whats happening today. We're gonna take it Tomorrow!. yea!,, none of this Blu Ray for INCIDENT CHIC..that is sooo yesterday!, We're gonna go with...HOLOGRAM! Yea!! Hologramed designs on your clothing as you wear them..match your mood, match your environment, match your je ne sais quoi..wear who you are in 3d!..INCIDENT CHIC !

Sam G said...

I have an up-converting DVD player and the regular DVD's look amazing on an HDTV.

Rorschach said...

Up converted dvds look really good on an HD tv, but there is a clear difference between an up converted dvd and a bluray (did a a/b comparison on my 57" with "Watchmen"). Though I am still debating if I will get the bluray for season 6 or just get the dvd and wait for the super mega awesome box set bluray of all 6 seasons.

Congested said...

For those considering purchasing a Blu-ray player for Lost University you should make sure to get one that can be used for Blu-ray live as many of the sub-$100 blu-ray players being sold on black friday cannot play blu-ray live functions.

Dennis said...

You can't get around the fact that there is a huge difference in resolution. Upconverting can smooth out the DVD picture, but it can't magically recreate pixels - it's not even close as far as detail.

Standard DVD resolution is 720x480 = 345,600 pixels

Broadcast HD is usually 720P 1280x720 = 921,600 pixels (3x DVD)

Blu-Ray HD is usually 1080P 1980x1080 = 2,138,400 pixels (6x DVD)

It's the equivalent of taking a picture on your cell phone vs. using a digital camera.

Dennis said...

Here is an illustration from Wikipedia:

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e0/HD_vs_SD_resolutions.png

maven said...

My PS3 Blu-Ray is on my 73" DLP and it's pretty awesome. We "just" have HD on our 46" LCD with a DVD player. And it looks great! But nothing compares with the Blu-Ray on the big screen! As I said before, the up converts are darn close, though!

Amy Lynn said...

We upgraded to Blu-Ray over the weekend (specifically for the LU release), and LOVE it so far. The Netflix and Pandora hook ups are great!

Just Thinking said...

Different topic- does it look to anyone else like the point of that "one of Ben's people" video is to show that "Christian" can do very unghostlike things?

Amy Lynn said...

My new conjecture is that we'll start getting clues Wednesday for a Monday reveal somewhere, so that there's exactly a week (and one more frame) till Lost University.

Dennis said...

Just Thinking...

We saw at the end of S5 that Jacob's rival assumed the body of John Locke once Locke's dead body arrived on the island. Maybe someone assumed Christian's dead body when Jack's arrived with his coffin.

Also, we earlier saw a dead Horace chopping down a tree, but that could have just been in John's head... and this could just be in their heads as well.

Ginger said...

Hey Dennis, I love that scene! It is just in John's head - he's dreaming. When he wakes up Ben is staring @ him & says "I used to dream." or something like that. Sooo cool!

I havn't made the Blu-ray plunge yet. Don't have a nice HDTV yet either. Oh well...That Dharma Initiative Orientation Kit is soooo tempting to all us uber LOST geeks. Once again, excellent marketing. I think I'm still going to wait for the ULTIMATE box set. It probably won't have all the cool Dharma stuff though....what to do, what to do.

Congested said...

@Dennis. I've been assuming that post-coffin Christian and Locke are the same being, and that it can choose more than one appearance. (we see that it chooses to appear as Alex so that it can get Ben to do what it wants.)

This is hinted at by Illana in the finale when she says that "someone else has been using it" after walking out of the cabin.

I think a large part of the "loophole" was for the being to assume a form that the others trusted, so that he would have access to Jacob (obviously he had access to Jacob at the time of the black rock arrival, but for unknown reasons wasn't able to kill him then.)

I also believe that while Jacob has followers like Illana, Richard & the others, etc... that the "Man in black" or "being" has followers as well, like Mrs. Hawking, who enabled him to take Locke's form. (I'm guessing that we're going to find that Mrs. Hawking has a bone to pick with Jacob, and sided with the Man in Black) - the MIB tells Locke that he has to die, and Mrs. Hawking sees to it that his body returns for the MIB to use-- so I'm convinced the two are working together.

...while the belief seems to be that Ben killing Jacob was the loophole, I think it has more to do with gaining access to Jacob in a way he wasn't able to prior. While Ben stabs jacob, it is the physical "apparition" of Locke that delivers the final blow by kicking Jacob into the fire, so I'm not sure that Ben killing him was the loophole... instead the loophole had more to do with gaining access to Jacob.

Ginger said...

@ Congested - I have been under the same assumption. I don't know about the access thing though. In my mind, Ben is the one that killed Jacob. Flocke just disposes of the body. I don't think that Jacob was going to survive that stab wound. Know what I mean? It's just a technicality.

Ginger said...

Sorry, that sounds horrible. I guess kicking a guy into a fire shouldn't be considered a technicality.

kiwilostie said...

Ginger, yeah - ahh whatever, stab in chest multiple times and kick in fire, no biggie! lol

mrtibbs said...

I agree Congested. I think the "War" will be Jacob's people versus the man in black's (not Johnny Cash!). Of course the war will one of strategy and deception rather than guns and bombs.

The DI Bluray looks Amazing, wish I could justify buying, but with £100 reserved for posters (fingers and everything else crossed) and Christmas coming there's just no way!

sophieBOYY said...

That is some hot stuff =O
Really want it - buuuut can't

Oh well!



-xx-

Josh said...

Actually, at comic-con a fan asked Darlton if we had seen Jacob's nemesis in the form of anyone else and they're response was no. So Im guessing any other possessions or imitations have either been done by the Smoke Monster or Jacob.

Micha said...

The Geronimo Jackson disc is an 7inch single not an LP, looks like it's hard to remember the analog in all the HD futurism

Zort70 said...

Does anyone else in the UK get the message about the deleted scene being unavailable in their country ?

It seems a bit daft that it isn't available in the UK when the DVD's and BluRay are already release !

Zort70 said...

or even already released !

Masheen said...

Can't access it either Zort... I'm hailing from .de here.

ChrisL said...

Can't view it either Zort. Someone hasn't thought it through when posting the YouTube stuff. I assume the promotion is via Buena Vista in the States and that they have territory restrictions automatically placed on everything they post to YT.

Do we know yet if the DI Kit set is available in the UK?

ChrisL said...

It's not showing up on UK YouTube via a search. I wonder what else we've missed.

Zort70 said...

I don't think the DI Kit is available directly in the UK, it would hvae to be a US order.

ChrisL said...

Thanks Zort. Ordered it from the US.

geekboypress said...

Hey Zort, I feel your pain! I live in the U.S. and every time the BBC puts up a Doctor Who preview, I can't watch it. Damn international rules!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Good morning everyone.
Hey Dennis. I thought maybe zort had woken up last night and made the post. duh!

Great discussions on Lost.
My thougts former/current leaders can't kill one another (unless you go back in time Ben killing Locke.) There can only be one leader on the island at a time which is why Ben killed Locke that's how he was able to go back.

The MIB may have been a former leader which is why he can't kill Jacob himself but he can have someone else do it for him. I'm of the mind the fire wasn't the murder weapon.

Congested's right make sure you get a blu-ray with bd live for the Lost University stuff not all of them have it, especially the less expensive ones.

But there may be some with BD live on sale Black Friday.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I know there's alot of holes in my theory, but I do think it's somewhere along those lines.

RobPerrin said...

I went Blu-Ray a few months back in prep for Lost S5 and Star Trek. No regrets. I have the Panasonic BD60, which supports BD-Live. Great picture for both BD and DVD.

ChrisL said...

I'm with Dennis and went for the PS3. It's BlueRay is stunning... I don't do much gaming but I stream HD video from my mac via the PS3 to a HDTV and the quality is awesome.

ChrisL said...

*Blu-Ray*

Unseenpunk said...

Hi guys, question for those of you who have gotten a print. What carrier does the print get delivered by?

Thanks in advance!

Zort70 said...

Unseenpunk, it depends which country you are in.

Within the US I believe it is the normal US Postal Service, in the UK it is Parcel Force.

Amy Lynn said...

OK, I am ready for a new clue, pls!

ChrisL said...

I'm so with you on that Amy Lynn!

Amy Lynn said...

A friend of my brother's made this post this morning on his blog. Thought you'd all get a kick out of it:

On or around the 25th of August, I finally succumbed to temptation and started watching Lost.

At long last, three months later, I have watched every episode in order, and have come to the end of season five.

I am now all caught up and no longer have to close my eyes and chant LALALALA every time Lost is mentioned on TV or the internet.

It is really hard to try to get into an incredibly popular show five years after it came on the air and remain spoiler free.

By the way, if you haven't watched it and think that maybe someday you will, this is where you close your eyes and go LALALALA, although I'd whisper if I were you and I were in the library, or class.

This is what I knew about the show before I started watching it:

A bunch of people crashed on an island and found polar bears and a monster made out of smoke. They fought some people called The Others, who, I assumed, were other people on the island who perhaps owned the polar bears. There was a hatch. A guy was paralyzed and then suddenly he was not paralyzed. A hobbit played a crack addict and was later killed off. A bunch of them got off the island and then wanted to go back. The island could move and you could only find it if you followed an invisible path without straying from a thin and narrow line. The island also moved through time.

It still sounds as preposterous now as it did back then, before I started watching it. Don't get me wrong, it's a great show -- I am now as addicted as a common junkie and can't wait for it to come back on the air.

I mean, it just has so many OH SHIT moments. Remember when Michael shot Ana Lucia and Libby? OH SHIT. Or when Sayid shot the young Ben Linus? OH SHIT. Or when The Others kidnapped Walt and shot Sawyer? OH SHIT. Or when it turns out Bernard is white? OH SHIT.

It does have some great moments. The opening scene when we find out there's a crazy Scottish guy in the hatch? Or when Jack is shown playing football with The Others? Or when it turns out The Others are living in a nice little village on the island? Or when we find out depressed Jack with the beard is around three years after they leave the island? Or when Arzt explodes?

BUT GODDAMNIT WHY DID THEY HAVE TO TRAVEL THROUGH TIME?

Seriously, every time anyone throws time travel into the equation it just screws everything up. I mean, I understand how it makes for a handy narrative technique -- we don't know when or where we are so everything can be a surprise and maybe we get to see Juliet again. But you know you're treading on thin ice when hey have to call in Hurley as a surrogate to ask the questions we are all asking only to have everybody shrug and says, I don't know, just roll with it.

But you know what? I'll give it to them because it's an interesting show and they have some great characters and even if it meanders it still tells a great story. Plus, there are so many questions.

What happens after the bomb explodes? Why does that guy not age? Who is pretending to be Locke? Why introduce Jacob and kill him off immediately? Did those bastards really have to kill off Juliet? Where are Claire and her baby? When did Sawyer become so much better than Jack? Why are Jin and Sun so boring? Has Sayid ever smiled? Why doesn't Hurley lose weight? Why is Kate so hot? How good are Desmond and Ben Linus? Are we done traveling through time?

And most importantly, didn't this use to be a show about people stranded on an island trying to figure out how to get food and water? What the hell happened?

ChrisL said...

YAY!! Another convert. That's a great post.

ChrisL said...

I've managed to convince a few people to start watching the DVD's since Season 5 ended and it's always the same. They constantly call me or email me with those OMG or OS moments! And it inevitably prompts me to re-watch episodes yet again. Those moments never get tired.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Welcome to the wonderful world of LOST! LOL :)

I love the time travel aspect of the show, it so mind bending. That is what's fun about Sci-Fi.

I've never understood how anyone could watch the pilot and not know it was Sci-Fi.

All this talk is making me more anxious about Season 6. Is Feb. 2ndd yet? lol

Sayid'sgirl said...

See I can't even type it.
Is it Feb. 2nd yet?

Just Thinking said...

WAS looking to see where D Danger works in Mass in case he had a location where you can go buy prints. Looks like not. But found this interview with lots of interesting stuff on him- like his real name and the person he shared a booth with for his first show- ironic in terms of LFA. Also, Mel, there is much mention of the "S" word in his art.

Martyn said...

ChrisL...

You must tell me how to stream the mac through the PS3!

PS3 is personally the best blu-ray around, purely because you get so much extra with it. It's a games console, blu-ray player and music storage device. Even if you don't play games, there's always Buzz or eyepet for the casual gamers or for family fun.

Not a fan of the slim ps3 though, looks like a cheap Chinese knock off if you ask me.

ChrisL said...

Martyn, The latest version of the Vuze app allows streaming to the PS3 via Wi-Fi. Works perfectly for me.

feel_the_insanity said...

Ugh, I really hope they don't take this week off from reveals. I'm finally home with a fast connection! Come on Tyson, help me out!

Lisa said...

I'm here finally now that the bf is home from the hospital. He's asleep and now I must go fix the dog fence. Glad to hear everyone's ideas on what to buy for Bluray. I have mine in the wish list now. Of course, I'm sure my son would prefer the PS3. Maybe I should get that. Does the Wii do Bluray ? I'll have to look. That would surely be the one if it had Bluray

ChrisL said...

Hey Lisa, good to hear you're back, hope your bf is OK. There were rumours of a Wii with Blu-Ray for 2010 but I'm not sure anything has been confirmed... But you're surely going to need one for Dec 8th!

Zort70 said...

It's certainly quiet on the DCaaPB front, we do have the next LU tutoring session tomorrow.

Lisa said...

yes, I'm happy he is at home sleeping in his new lounge chair. The dog fence is fixed and now I'm going to look on line for a bluray player. Think I might buy it on Amazon so it will get shipped here. Not sure yet.

Martyn said...

Blu-ray is part created by Sony so I think it'll be a while before they release it on the 360 or the Wii. 360 looks very unlikely to have it and the Wii doesn't have DVD playing functionality, so blu-ray is a way off. PS3 having blu-ray was really the reason HD-DVD failed in my opinion.

Sorry, games consoles and technology are sorta my thing and it's a rarity that I get to talk about it without boring people like my family and gf.

Cheers ChrisL, on way home now so will try that out.

Martyn said...

Also, I bought S5 blu-ray purely for LU because I'm hoping for some ultimate collection of some sorts like everyone else. Though I was tempted by the DI kit but amazon and hmv took it off their site.

Glad to hear all is well with your bf lisa.

Amy Lynn said...

If anyone needs a pick me up today, check this out:

ChrisL said...

The perfect end to my working day Amy Lynn!

Martyn, let me know how you get on with the streaming. I ordered the DI Kit from the US today as I couldn't find anyone offering it in the UK.

Zort70 said...

Any version of Bohemian Rhapsody is good for me.

Martyn said...

Quality Amy Lynn.

Just to make sure, is it approaching 1pm EST?

Ben Ritter said...

The Wii can play DVDs from a technical standpoint. It's just a feature you need to unlock.

Amy Lynn said...

12 minutes, yes.

Martyn said...

@Ben Ritter...

Obviously it plays DVDs the disc, that's what the games are on but the film types you can't and tbh, who can be bothered to try and find a way to unlock it?

@Amy Lynn...

Thank you very much, going to try and get one of the DD prints from the e-mail.

Amy Lynn said...

@Martyn, F5, F5, F5

Martyn said...

lol, yeah, it'll be nice practice for the potential last poster.

OT, Frank, did Ken ever pick up his e-mail? *Praying he didn't*

maven said...

Another great thing about the PS3 is that it constantly receives updates once you have it hooked up to your WiFi. Makes it so easy. It's really a multi-media device!

With no clue yet it looks like TPTB are spending some time with their families for Thanksgiving!

feel_the_insanity said...

Does anyone have any pics of their copy of The Hatch framed? I'm heading down to the framers today to pick out a frame and mat for my copy, wondering if anyone had any suggestions?

Amy Lynn said...

@maven, I disagree. Like I said yesterday, I think the clue is coming tomorrow.

Ben Ritter said...

I can watch movies on my Wii. It wasn't really hard to do. (I mean, other people did the hard work; I just had to run their programs off my SD card.)

Martyn said...

@FTI...

Give me two secs, i'll take a picture for you.

Amy Lynn said...

Danger store is live for anyone shopping!

feel_the_insanity said...

Wow, Danger's just is great but they are PRICEY. Guess I won't be buying anything today, kinda bummed.

feel_the_insanity said...

@Martyn, thanks! I can't wait to see it.

Martyn said...

ARRRRGGGGGHHHH!!!

Clicked complete checkout and Server Runtime nonsense, gone back, sold out.

Serves me right for taking my time I guess. Changed my mind halfway through over which print to get.

Martyn said...

Oh yeah, the picture.

Basically, i'm going to give it the proper expensive treatment in the New Year as it's my favourite, so at the moment it's been dry mounted (personal choice, let's not spark another mass debate about dry mounting again), and given a nice cream mat that brings out the colours, but the guy said it's not what he'd do but it'll do for now. He was a very nice, very wise framer. And the frame is from Ikea, nice and cheap so I can at least see them for the time being.

Here's the link

Brendan said...

Hey guys- IMO, DDs best piece "don't worry I'll be something different...." is still up for $35! Though maybe some people missed that one.

feel_the_insanity said...

Oh wow! That is nice! I'm thinking a black frame with a white mat, but I like the brown. I also love where the flash of the camera is situated, kinda makes it look like "the light" coming from The Hatch. Haha. Thanks Martyn.

Zort70 said...

Also have a look at this picture that ReAnimated sent in a while ago

Congested said...

@Josh: Yeah I remember that. If they're to be believed... (Damon's the same guy who said there would never be time travel on the show, then went around saying it was in the show's DNA from the start).. then it could be some other being that perhaps wanted Ben to carry out the MIB's plan. So yeah that's a total possibility.

It could also be that the comiccon question didn't take into account the full scope of the what the being is.

I could be wrong, but I like the idea of the MIB orchestrating all this. If he's Christian/Alex/Locke he totally manipulated people with the goal of killing Jacob at every step.. leading Locke to turn the wheel (in Cabin Fever), re-assuring Locke that he would have to die by making a "sacrifice," having Richard tell Locke he has to die (so he can later take Locke's form), convincing Ben (via Alex) to do what Locke says, etc.

..guess time will tell on this one. :)

Martyn said...

Yeah, I just thought the same thing, very fortunate really. And the brown is brown because on the website, didn't look very different from the black, which I got for the Dharma van, which looks perfectly awesome with a black frame, white mat.

The framer will just a pull a few bits and bobs around to see what emphasises the print and will probably recommend a double mat which has a thin colour on the inside of it.

@Brenden...

Thank You!!!

MIB isn't Christian. Darlton has said so.

Amy has completed the loop!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Thanks zort for reminding me of the new tutoring session tomorrow.
I had to create a new identy at LU. For some reason I was having issues with the first one.

Patmc said...

To anyone worried that they don't have a VCR to view the video tape included in the DI Blu Ray set... I would estimate that it will be about 10 minutes after the time the first person receives their kit, to the time that it is posted on YouTube... :-)

Martyn said...

I thought the Video Cassette was just a case, not an actual Cassette. Makes no sense what so ever to release the real thing.

Speaking of Real Things, just saw the Coca Cola trucks Holidays Are Coming advert on TV, so for me, today is the start of Christmas!!!

Also, no sight of the pervert Santa from last year, thank god!

Eugene said...

Sorry this is a bit old but I am just getting caught up.

@Just Thinking - D. Danger I believe does live in Mass. (and I think Nate Duval and Dan McCarthy do too). If you wanted to pick up any of their work you would really have to look hard. But they do show their work at times. I know Nate Duval had some of his prints at an art fair in Western Mass just a couple of weeks ago.

Did you catch Dan's response to "flippers"? Shoot 'em with a cross bow.

Attorney Greg said...

I also joined in the DD extravaganza - very nice: hast thou slain the jabberwock and i came to know an archer.

RobPerrin said...

I just picked up "Don't worry..." from DD. Wanted both it and Jabberwock, but the latter became unavailable as I was checking out. Sound familiar...

Sayid'sgirl said...

Patmc
Actually I think it's already out there somewhere. I'm pretty sure I've watched it but can't remember where.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I found it.
DI vhs

Eugene said...

Thank you Sayid's Girl!

MeSoCrazy said...

Why do they have to make it so geek heaven? I sold my 4 seasons of on DVD because I decided I wanted the whole collection on blu ray. At the time I thought I had to sell them right away because who knew if I could sell them for that price again. *Smacks head* Dumb. I want I want. Please make the whole collection this spit on your neck fantastic (but not as gigantic and as ridiculous BSG, because that thing should've come with it's own side table).

I use to spend my LOST days over at ABC then at the Fuse and then quit because it wasn't as fun. I watched a lot of season 5 by myself. But that wasn't as fun either. I know that these posters brought your place a lot of newbs, myself included, but it sure has been a very welcoming environment.

Sayid'sgirl said...

You're welcome Eugene.

Eugene said...

Now I want this so bad. Welcome to the island.

Brendan said...

@Martyn
Congrats dude, thats awesome! I read on EB that those sold out in liek 2 minutes, and then popped back up for a few minutes so you got mad lucky! That would like nice next to Jacobs Cabin.

MeSoCrazy said...

My apologies for just posting w/out reading. I'm now doing so. And I'm all giddy with all the LOST talk.

Martyn said...

@Brendan...

Seriously??? I really did get lucky then. Triple the tanks I gave you earlier then.

It's the first print I saw of his when someone mentioned him way way back and loved it, then loved Jakes Cabin so now I have both and they will compliment each other quite well. If the cabin actually does arrive sometime. Usually here by now.

Just three more posters to buy for me now. Four if i can get my hands on the swan station.

I'm babbling again.

Claire said...

Hey guys,

After reading this I'm now contemplating buying a PS3. I'm a little hesistant just because buying Blu-Rays are more expensive than DVD's. But I also really want to experience Lost University! Is watching regular DVD's on a Blu-Ray player give the DVD a better picture?

MeSoCrazy said...

Claire,

Totally worth it. Blu rays are awesome. When I bought mine last year I think I was hesitant because of how DVDs would look, if blu rays would be as amazing as they said they were, I have absolutely not regretted it. DVDs look sharper. Not a HUGE difference but IMO a difference. And all blu rays just are amazing. Definitely a must have if you are a collector or you like to watch a lot of movies.

Congested said...

DVDs are the same quality, but are upconverted for HD screens. You can buy DVD players that do the same thing. But pixels aren't magically added to the DVD video to make them look the same as their blu-ray counter parts. It's just the DVD resolution being blown up smoothly to HD resolution. A fancy "zoom," if you will.

So the answer is technically a no in my book. :/ ...though DVDs do look great on HD screens when upconverted, and unless you're really picky I wouldn't bother running out and replacing your DVD collection with blu-ray discs as the format probably isn't going to last that long.

Congested said...

...to be clear I meant "DVDs are the same quality on any device..." ... not that DVDs are the same quality as blu-ray discs. ;)

MeSoCrazy said...

Oh sorry I wouldn't replace your DVDs either. (Well that's actually what I am doing with LOST but for the most part I'm not doing that). I agree with Congested only he sounds much better. Maybe I just think they DVDs look a little bit sharper, then they actually do. I was just happy they played on the same machine. When I bought it I was afraid that it wouldn't play on blu ray player. Having a blu ray player is worth it was what I meant to say. Like I said I sold my LOST DVDS because I personally want the whole series as a complete collection on blu ray, but other than that, I have kept my collection the same. Just changed any new purchases to blu ray.

What the? Nobody cares Crazy person. Sorry. What Congested said. I'm lost in that place again.

Martyn said...

I dunno Congested, I think Blu-ray's will be around for a while yet, not as long as previous formats but still for a good 5-6 years if not longer. Downloading, to me anyway, still doesn't seem that sound of an option. I know iTunes have done the EXTRA feature with some films and all but it's still a way away from being THE format of choice.

Some countries broadband isn't up to speed with the rest of the world to download such heavy files too. I think Japan is 1st, USA 2nd and UK 3rd, could be wrong about UK though.

Plus, people like me LIKE the boxes the discs come in. Adds something to the experience of owning the disc.

If this isn't what you meant, sorry, I babbled again.

On another note, Frank chose a new winner. Congratulations Caryn...*grumbles*

Zort70 said...

CarltonCuse Stephen King's new book, "Under The Dome", has two LOST references. We are beyond happy.

His latest Tweet

Walkindude125 said...

Does anyone have the DCAAPB customer service email?

Thanks!

Jesse t said...

@congested- I take it you haven't seen lost on blu-ray yet.The picture quality is amazing and surpasses the hd broadcast. once you've seen one episode on blu-ray,you'll want to watch all of them over again.

thorsten said...

This guy appears in the Orientation VHS…
anybody a clue who he could be?


Dharmadude

Claire said...

@MeSoCrazy and @Congested

Thanks for your help! I don't think I would ever replace my DVD's with Blu Ray but I might still consider a PS3. I really want to see the LU and also play Little Big Planet and Arkham Asylum PLUS stream Netflix...so it might be a good deal. It's just so darn expensive!

Thanks the input though, it was helpful!

Zort70 said...

Congested, did you get my email earlier ?

I've had problems today so I don't know what has got through and what has not.

Claire said...

I just saw Carlton's tweet, I'm reading Under The Dome right now (I like it so far!). I'm not even halfway through it so I'll have to keep looking for these LOST references!

I'm sure Darlton is overjoyed about the references. :)

Capcom said...

Could be a chubby John Cleese, Thorsten. :o)

mrtibbs said...

Sorry for the off-topic message, but I've only just got back online after a massive technical issue. I know folks here use macs, I did the latest software update to the OS and Safari and Safari kept crashing. After a permissions repair and restart the machine wouldn't start up. Had to reinstall snow leopard and all seems well (touch wood). Just a world of caution.

mrtibbs said...

world of caution?! I meant word!

Martyn said...

@mrtibbs...

Snow Leopard has caused me nothing but problems since I installed it, Safari being the worse. DivX web player doesn't function properly anymore either, and struggle to see any differences tbh.

thorsten said...

cool pic tibbs!
updated safari to 4.0.4 today,
under 10.6.2…
no problems

mrtibbs said...

Ha Thorsten! It's amazing what you can do with photo booth, irons out all the wrinkles!

mrtibbs said...

BTW hope that your update is successful. I'm running an old imac with 2.16 dual processor. I think after three years apple make their computers slowly self destruct!

Martyn said...

@ChrisL...

With Vuze, can to add your own videos to the library or do they all have to be downloaded?

thorsten said...

No way, tibbs!

Macs run forever

ChrisL said...

I haven't dared install snow leopard on any of my machines. They all run sooo smoothly right now.

@Martyn, I just drop my video files from my desktop right into the ps3 sidebar in Vuze and mostly they stream fine. I don't use Vuze to download. Some files it doesn't like, avi's with certain codecs but 90% are great. Vuze will convert if it needs to which takes a while sometimes. It seems to understand what it needs to do to create a compatible file.

thorsten said...

Okay folks, another water cooler moment…

Beach Boys

Amy Lynn said...

DUDE. That is awesome. Print plzzzz.

Congested said...

@zort: no email. :/

Martyn said...

ChrisL...

Thanks, this is genius!Currently watching family guy on my PS3 and the quality is fantastic.

Martyn said...

Actually, a lot of lag time in the streaming, hmm, must do research further in to this stuff, but thanks none the less.

mrtibbs said...

Thorsten, don't get me wrong I'm mac man through and through, cut me in half and there's an apple in there. It's just that the last three macs I've had have all conked out after around three years. Must be cursed!

Zort70 said...

@Congested, resent the email.

thorsten said...

That sucks tibbs, did you hear this…

Martyn, My pleasure. I've not had the time lag problem so I'm sure you'll find a solution.

mrtibbs said...

Jeez that's bad news about the DOAS, the new iMacs are sweet.

thorsten said...

that screen in these babes is unbelievable…

Zort70 said...

All this Mac chat is not my scene, I'm afraid I've not been a Mac user, apart from about 2 weeks at University for an assignment.

Zort70 said...

I hope everyone in the UK is safe and dry tonight, big storms with heavy rain here at the moment.

ChrisL said...

Same here Zort. Frightning drive home tonight. About to try to sleep through the storm. Night all.

thorsten said...

Take care, folks, good night.

Zort70 said...

Yes good night all, I know that usually means a new clue, but I've got a feeling we are safe for today.

Zort70 said...

By the way if anyone has received their Jacobs cabin poster I could do with a full poster picture and a couple of signature pictures.

Links to photo's already online are good, or email to the admins address.

Just Thinking said...

Eugene- I will keep an eye out for any DD shows in my area. No, I did not see his crossbow to the flippers comment-medieval justice!

I had Martyn's de ja vue buying experience today. I ordered the Jabberwock poster about 18 min after 1 and got the error screen. Remembered my LFA lessons and hit f5 instead of back- waited- and it went through! Then went back into store and immediately saw it said "OUT OF STOCK". Thought - uh- oh- but then saw confirmation emails from DD & paypal. So- unless I get a phone call...

Feel especially lucky as I was ordering amidst trying to
work and having a conversation with a co-worker about family and knowing now that it just popped back up after being sold out.

Caryn said...

So this has nothing to do with the new awesome Blueray Season 5 set, but I just wanted to say a HUGEEEEE thank you to Frank from bannedwidth.org for his Swan Station print raffle sale. My boyfriend will be THRILLEEDDD that we're finally getting our first poster thanks to your kindness. I'm still in denial that I was chosen and I can't wait for your email :)

Martyn said...

Congrats Caryn!

I secretly hate you but congrats!

Joke!

Caryn said...

haha thank you, and the hate is understandable :P I'm just so thrilled, I jumped on the poster bandwagon pretty late, but I've missed every single one of the posters I tried for (getting on for my boyfriend for Christmas), so this really cheered up my spirits.

Just Thinking said...

So glad it went to someone who will give it a good home! Thank you Frank.

Re clues- my bet is the next thing we see is "Happy Thanksgiving"

Patmc said...

@Sayid's Girl - Thanks for the link to the Dharma VHS video! I keep forgetting that the UK already has season 5 in their hot little hands. I don't get mine for another 2 weeks... :-(

@Claire - I have become a total HD snob now. I don't even buy DVDs any more. Yes DVDs look good in an upscaling Blu Ray player... but Blu Ray discs look absolutely amazing! It is all about the detail that you are missing, that you never realized you were missing. You can see individual hairs on people's heads, textures in clothing, background details you would have otherwise missed.

I tell people, that comparing regular DVDs to Blue Rays is like when I was young, and had to get glasses for the first time. I never realized what I was not seeing, because that is how I'd always seen it. It is stunning to finally see things as they really are.

I have gotten to the point now that I will usually wait for the Blu Ray of most movies to come out before I see them. Unless a movie theater is using a digital projector, the quality is higher on Blu Ray and my HD TV, then it is in the theater. Of course there are certain "event" movies that are more fun to see with a crowd (Star Trek, and the upcoming Avatar come to mind), so I still go out to see movies... just not as often as I used to.

And I too have been re-watching Lost on Blu Ray before the season 6 premiere. The difference between the DVDs and Blu Rays for Lost is night and day to me. I remember the original broadcasts of Lost as seeming really dark... but the Blu Rays make the jungle scenes bright, with amazing detail in the foliage in beautiful shades of green. If it is within your means, re-watching Lost on Blu Ray is an amazing treat for a Lost fan!

(sorry for the long post... I get passionate about certain things... LOL)

I think Tyson is taking Thanksgiving off. I'm guessing no new clue until next week... darn it.

Martyn said...

Downside to Blu-Ray is, I never realised that Kate had crows feet before. That just shows how much extra detail Blu-Ray gives.

Seriously though, Congrats on the poster, I will just have to keep on trying my way and i'm guessing Ken will be kicking himself pretty darn soon.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Patmc
you're welcome.
I seen that video on someone's site but can't remember whose. I did a search and found it on youtube.

Yeah I have to wait two more weeks too. boo :)

Capcom said...

Congrats on the neat Christmas poster present, Caryn!

Stay safe UK, g'nite all.

Don't forget to watch the last V tonight.

mungonna said...

So ..what does Blu ray or HD do for sound? That s important to me beings I ain't gettin any younger and if I turn my TV up any louder the cops show up within minutes. Freekin neighbors and their desturbin the peace. And there is alot hidden in the sounds of LOST. seriously!..Like in that episode where Kate and Julie are handcuffed together. I mean, they do some bonding and all, even do some mud wrasslin and end up under the Banyan tree there with Smokey takin pictures of 'em..at least thats what it sounded like. But even better was the next morning..the sound was incredible,,and I need to know which will make it even more detailed and clearer..because..what I'm about to tell ya.. is the honest to Darlton TRUTH!. Check it out if ya don't believe me..Really!. I mean.. they got one over on us...so listen carefully..there they are.. its the next morning under the Banyan tree.. the jungle is just ALIVE with sounds.. Birds and insects are just making a racket. Now birds and insects are chirpy things, right?.. Their sounds are up high..chip chip chirpee chirpee. ya know what I mean?.. So Kate stirs awake and looks around and stands up and..then theres this low...BRRRRAAAAPPP!..now.. now,,check out Kate after the BRAAAAPP..Is that not the action of somebody hurrying away from a nasty cloud they left behind??..Ya know what I mean..like she just stepped out of a elevator she polluted. I need a better sound to make absolute sure,, that our Kate Austin ..passes wind. Seems to me Jacob missed that about her. But I didn't. So..Go ahead then,, you with HD and with Blu Ray..and get back to me with what ya think..which one does a better job in that scene?

mungonna said...

Oh!!..and speakin of gettin one over on us...let me know if that darn fake commercial is on the season 5 dvd/ bluray. I mite have to buy them just for that. See. I stop recording when the commercials come on.. So..i stopped recording when it looked like some kind of Prozoid Guacamoly Lipodeine commercial brought to you by the good guys at Pfizer was airing..But I swear,,it was fake. It just had to be a LOST hehe haha. I mean..about 10 seconds of the " commercial" was about what the drug is meant for..then 50 seconds of all the bad symptoms it could produce..It was a HOOT!..Maybe it was season 4..but it sure was funny and I missed recording it. Any body know what I'm talking about? And if ya do.. was that in season 4 or 5?

Capcom said...

The ads in commercial breaks can vary between local stations, our Knoxville stations cut in after the first ad to show all the used car salesmen and pawn shop ads, and then cut back in during the last official network sponsor ad before the show starts again. I missed out on the set-up OGR commercial because of the local ads airing over it. :-p

mungonna said...

Cap...help me with "ORG"...But you know what I'm talkin about then..Nobody over at abc.com got it. Nobody knew what I was talkin about !

Raj said...

Bluray supports Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master HDsound. Basically these audio programs are supposed to be nearly identical to the studio masters so you are getting the best sound reproduction, as the filmaker's intended when making a movie or show. Also they are encoded in 7.1 channel surround as well but right now I do not believe any movies are produced in full 7.1 channel so the surround output is basically split into the back four speakers instead of just two.

Spy Hill Skates said...

It's raining polar bears?!?

I would say this is NWS and kind of disturbing...

MEL and Capcom,

Always hard to spot the fake commercials. This one was not so hard to spot but doesn't it look fun?

@mungonna - funny - season 4

Congested said...

@Zort. I'm seeing if I can get permission to post someone's full picture of the cabin. It hasn't been posted publicly... so if I get the go ahead I'll share the link here.

Ginger said...

Just catching up on comments today.

Amy Lynn how did you find that Muppet Bohemian Rhapsody? Just browsing? I love the Muppets! Soooo funny. Thanks for posting the link.

Mel you're crackin me up again. I'm going to have to watch that episode again just to listen for Kate breaking wind;P

Spy Hill Skates I could have lived my whole life without seeing that video. Yuck.

And now, thanks to everyone here, I have to go out and get a PS3 & a HD TV;P I wish...

LotteryTicket said...

Zort70, sent photos of cabin.

reAnimated said...

phew. Caught up on ALOT of comments.

@Zort. Thanks for posting my Hatch print setup Pic!

Also, got my Polar Beer tee today. killer.

Been engaged all evening in some Season 2 rewatch in Blu Ray. My gf (and even myself) got all teary eyed at the reuniting of Rose and Bernard after the crash. :)

Hope everyone has a great holiday weekend. I will have a house full of family all headed down from Dallas tomorrow.

Hosting my first Thanksgiving for my whole fam.

Wish me luck!

LotteryTicket said...

reanimated, good luck! Your family will appreciate all your efforts.

I remember the first time I was in charge of Thanksgiving. I was still in high school! I prepared stuff quail courtesy of my father's good aim . Unfortunately for some teeth, I did not get out all the pellets. A good laugh.

Best to all stateside as we take a moment to give thanks.

Ginger said...

Good luck reAnimated! :) I thought about inviting extended family to my house for Thanksgiving. But then I burned my kitchen up! I think it was my subconscious getting me out of that crazy idea;P

Just watching some fan-made LOST videos over on You Tube. Owwwww man...69 days and 21 hours is tooooo long:( I can't wait. I think I'll embark on another rewatch:)

maven said...

Just caught up on all talk today! I'm still pushing the PS3!

Looks like we just might be getting our Thanksgiving break. Hope all of you have a fabulous time getting together with family and friends...we should all be thankful for what we have...and LOST!

Ginger said...

Oh yeah, I got my polar beer t-shirt too! Love it! I don't think any of my family gets it. Oh well...too bad for them:)
