Loaded with extra goodies such as biographical information on cast and crew, translations of non-English spoken by characters, transcripts of the whispers, information on references to books, historical events and more. Stafford calls our attention to little things we might have missed. Great fun to read.

Several of my good friends had been at me for some time to watch LOST - somehow I had missed the show when it was originally broadcast. Since I trust these friends implicitly when it comes to movie and TV recommendations (we share a common interest in myth and pop culture), I knew I had to give LOST a try eventually. I nagged at my husband enough that he bought me season 1 last year for my birthday - and although he kept harping that we already had too much TV to watch, we popped it in the DVD p ...more

Loved reading Nikki's reviews of each episode while watching the now iconic series about a bunch of complicated, deceiving individuals who get stranded on a South Pacific island after a plane crash. The connections she makes, including cross-references to other characters and to their respective flashbacks, is helpful in following along the various subplots. My only caveat is that she has a tendency to overemphasize the numerological dimension of Hurley's 'cursed' numbers. Now on to Season 3!
A wonderful aid in thinking about the series. I enjoy the articles about books the characters have read and the insightful character speculation. Stafford always presents interesting ideas to ponder and discuss.
I read the book once but return to it often for specific episodes or articles.
On the negative side, I would have appreciated more plot synopsis. Also, I thought the number business was basically trite.

This book has a lot of info on seasons one and two. However, it should be read while watching the shows because the synopses aren't detailed. I haven't watched those episodes for a couple of years, so some of the material here was hard for me to recall.

Pointed me to a few "Easter Eggs" located in the show, and I found it to be a nice companion on my third viewing of the first two seasons of the perhaps the most thought provoking TV show ever created.

This book is excellent to have around if you are watching seasons one and two of Lost. Nikki Stafford is an excellent author. Like the season 3 book, I have read this book countless times.
I've never read an episode guide before. I enjoyed it. I wasn't watching the series at the same time so I had to try and refresh my memory as I went. Some people are obsessed.
Wow! Did the writers of the show really think of all these things?
Yay more ways to spend my hours of the day with LOST
Book 1,2 & 3 done.
Now book 4,5 & 6 ...
