It can be easy to forget how important Lost was when it first aired It was a show that had many of us glued to the screen when it was on and almost always ended with a scene where we would talk to a new episode was available.
It was a true ‘water-cooler’ television and since we’ve since entered the binging era, there hasn’t really been anything like it in the years following the 2010 conclusion.
The plane crash drama has been airing on ABC in America for six seasons and may have ruffled some feathers with a divided ending, but the journey to reach the conclusion is one of the most beautiful you’ll come across and if you’ve never seen it now your chance to experience the whole thing in what would be the ultimate binge.

What is it about?
Well, there is a question that is not easy to answer. On the surface, it’s a show about the survivors of a plane crash who are stranded on a remote island without being able to come home. But this is no ordinary island, as there is a huge monster of smoke killing humans, pacing, and countless secrets and surprises await the stranded passengers.
However, all of the action doesn’t take place on the island as we get flashbacks of the characters’ lives before the crash, which gradually shed more light on who they are – and whether they are who they claim to be. There have been twists and turns from the start with Lost, and it’s a show like no other – and one that really pushed serial storytelling to the fore on TV, with an impact that can still be felt to this day.
How many seasons of Lost are there?
There are six seasons of Lost, in varying lengths. The first three seasons are the standard 22 episodes + length, with the first being the longest, while seasons four through six are slightly shorter. There are a total of 121 episodes.
