Lost The Lie S05E02 (ABC)

Lost is a United States serial drama television series that follows the lives of plane crash survivors on a mysterious tropical island, after a 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 show 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, three seasons have aired. The show is produced by ABC Studios, Bad Robot Productions and Grass Skirt Productions and airs on the ABC Network in the United States. Its incidental music is composed by Michael Giacchino. The current executive producers are Abrams, Lindelof, Bryan Burk, Jack Bender and Carlton Cuse. Because of its large ensemble cast and the cost of filming in Hawaii, the series is one of the most expensive on television.

From the Lost Wikipedia entry.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.

This episode is part of the season premiere of season 5. The story picks up right after the end of the last episode, There’s No Place Like Home.

Once again, the storyline is split into multiple narratives. One takes place in 2004, where the island is skipping through time because of the wheel that Ben pulled. Juliet and Sawyer are lost in the events that shaped the island. In 2007, Jack, Ben and the others are trying to get back together to return to the island. Ben learns that he doesn’t have much time to get everyone back to the island, otherwise it will be too late.

This is what makes Lost a great show. I thought that this was a great way to start the season.
