Lost Season 5 DVD Sneak Peak!

The Lost Community has been offered a sneak peak at the new season 5 DVD and Blu-Ray sets coming out on December 8! We just received these promotional photos, and over the next couple of weeks, we'll be receiving some special video clips, which we'll be posting here.

Here's an excerpt from the official press release:

The ultimate addition to every TV lover’s collection, LOST: The Complete Fifth Season is perfectly timed for holiday gift giving. Read the full release HERE.

Here is the original e-mail that we received:


My name is Fionna, and I'm working for an advertising agency in conjunction with Buena Vista Home Entertainment to reach out to selected LOST fan sites. I liked your site in particular because of the friendly community and great discussion you have in your comments section, and so I wanted to offer you access to several sneak peeks from the upcoming LOST Season 5 DVD that you can share with your readers.

These sneak peeks -- including deleted scenes, cast and crew interviews and a glimpse inside LOST University -- will be released over the next couple of weeks, leading up to LOST's season 5 DVD release on Tuesday, December 8, so you'll get a chance to see them all ahead of time.

I'd also like to offer you the chance to give away a LOST Season 5 limited edition Dharma Initiation Kit DVD to one of your readers, as a thank you for all the great work you've been doing.

There's no catch and no cost. It's just our way of saying thanks for supporting LOST over the years.

Please let me know if you're interested and thanks again for all your dedication and effort! Namaste!


Other sites have no doubt received the same offer - our sister-site, LostArgs, has confirmed that they also received an e-mail from Fionna, although the e-mail sent there mentions Lost University. That seems to mean that each site received a personalized message, not just a form letter.

Stay tuned - we'll post new content as we get it!

Yes this is all very good of the marketing people. I'm going to enter the competion as LostARGs didn't get the offer of the free DVD's !

Capcom said...

Well, that's just really neat. That's very nice of them, and how special are the LoCos' and Argies' blogs?! Wow. :-D

BTW, thanks everyone for all the birthday wishes, I forgot to check if there was a new post up for a long time so I missed the last one. Also Happy B-day to all my fellow November peeps as well!

And congrats on the new babies!

Melissa_Lossa said...

I was at first suspicious, but now I'm just happy for the recognition! :)

And I'm very proud to be a part of an online community that would impress someone with their "friendly community and great discussion." Nice to know you, TLCers!

Zort - I had forgotten about the giveaway! She hasn't mentioned it since her original e-mail, so we'll see how that plays out.

Hello TLC!! It's been awhile since I've visited here! So sorry if I missed your birthday, Capcom!! I hope it was a great one!

It's wonderful that this site and LostArgs is being recognized as the great place for fans that it is!!

As far as the season5 blu-ray dvds, the people in Europe already have them and I have some friends from my Black Swan myspace that have already uploaded and shared the videos from the blu-rays and I have them on my myspace profile page right now. You can also see them at this blog. If you go there, make sure to click on the 'videos' tab and also the 'Annotations' tab. It seems that on the blu-rays there is also an option to be logged in to the LU site and use the dvd in some way with that, but I haven't heard what that does.

Capcom, maybe you can explain the physics ones to me.. LOL! I still struggle with that stuff.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Okay, somebody PLEASE refresh my memory. What's the link to the blog with the woman who writes the really funny recaps with photos and captions? I am drawing a complete blank, and I could really use the laugh!

memphish said...

Do you mean Ack Attack?

Melissa_Lossa said...

memphish - I knew you'd come through! Yes! Thanks. :)

kiwilostie said...

Hey, first TLC comment! Looking forward to the DVDs. Ive ordered from the US, even though available locally already. Might pick up the local one but only if content is different to Region 1.

Zort70 said...

Hi Kiwilostie, we will all have to start the weaning process from LostARGs at some point.

Capcom said...

Wow, welcome back old friends, and welcome new friends!


maven said...

Sandman90 said...

Hello, I see some familiar names here from LostARGs. Again, relative newcomer as far as contributing to blog sites though the LostARGs site drew me out and now I'm hooked (Thanks Zort!). Look forward to participating in some great discussions here.

kiwilostie said...

Im torn. In one moment, I cant wait for S6, and the next, I dont want it to start, as thats the start of the end! Oh well, Im sure we will have a great time of it.

ChrisL said...
