There’s no reason to review the sixth season of Lost as a home video release for two reasons: if you’ve watched the first five seasons of Lost, you’ve already seen the sixth season and have probably already made up your mind about how you feel regarding the way things panned out. If you haven’t seen the first five seasons (and really, you should see all five if you’re in it for the long haul), then there’s absolutely no reason you should pick up this disc. Nothing will make sense. It barely does either way.

That being said, the show looks great in hi-def. John Bartley’s cinematography is colorful and pops in all the right places. The audio is crisp and atmospheric. Beyond that, we’re presented with a smattering of standard-issue television extras: bland, self-fellating interviews, deleted scenes, and bloopers. Individual episode commentaries are par-for the course. Six behind the scenes featurettes provide more of a sense of what it’s like to be on set than how the show was actually made (after six years, Jorge Garcia still seems to be thrilled to be there). The returning “Lost University” online feature pulls back the curtain on many of the show’s secrets and easter-eggs hidden throughout the season, and for the super-fans, could be a fun way to kill a couple hours.

The best reason to buy this Season 6 standalone disc is the “The New Man In Charge,” a short-form epilogue to the series that takes a peek at the further adventures of Ben, Hugo, and… Well, I’m not gonna spoil it, but it’s a fun opportunity to see Michael Emerson putting the Ben in benevolent. The short also appears in the Lost Complete Collection set, precluding the purchase of a standalone season for the Lost completist. (abc.go.com/shows/lost)
