Split Decision

The Lost DVD season six box set has been released.  To no one's surprise, it's a top seller.  But considering how controversial (to put it nicely) the season was--especially the ending--I was intrigued to see how people rated it on Amazon.

While the other seasons get four-and-a-half out of five stars, this season gets three.  Okay, not completely outrageous.  But what's interesting is the split.  As I write, the ratings are as follows--

Five stars: 75
Four stars: 15
Three stars: 13
Two stars: 19
One star: 57.

So this does seem to be a love it or hate it sort of thing.  The highest and lowest choices both get more than the in-betweens added up.  (The sample might be biased, as you'd expect those who especially like the show to come to the page and vote.)

PS  The Lost auction had some high-priced items.  At top was the Dharma van, which sold for $47,500.  Also, the Lighthouse wheel and Faraday's journal both went for $27,500.  (The wheel might seem cooler, but the journal will unlock the secrets of the universe.)

Other items of interest:  Dharma beer 12-pack: $4500. 1977 Dharma group photo: $7000.  Charlie's DS ring: $9000.  Jin's wedding ring: $4750 (Jin can't beat Driveshaft).  Locke's suicide note: $8500 (over a thousand bucks a word).  Hurley's Lotto ticket: $5500 (note: not real).

On the final disk in the S6 DVD set, the feature "The Man In Charge" is only eleven minutes long. But it contains a LOT.

(That's all I can say without spoilers. Yes, there are still Lost spoilers!!!)

Thanks for not spoiling it. It's probably the main reason to purchase the final set.
