It has been almost two weeks since the season finale of Lost, and the announcement of the reWatching Lost event here at Docarzt’s & Friends Lost blog and the response has been tremendous. If you missed the announcement, you can check it out here to catch up with the rest of us.
First and foremost, we have retitled the event The Lost Rewatch, and DocArzt and Friends has teamed up with Lostpedia.com to bring you this great event over the long hiatus leading up to the sixth and final season of our favorite show.
In addition to Docarzt.com and Lostpedia.com, there are several other great sites that will be involved in this event, either with direct links from DocArzt.com or with RSS feeds on the main Lostpedia page for the event. Either way, there will be tons of great Lost content over the summer and fall for everyone to relive Lost.
Some of the great sites involved include:
- Sledgeweb’s Lost Stuff
- Get Lost with JOpinionated
- The Joshmeister
- All About Lost
- Jacob’s Cabin
- Lostpedia Blog
- A few other non-Lost related blogs
As a recap, we’ll be watching 3 or 4 episodes of Lost each week, based on the schedule here. Please note that based on that schedule we will start watching Season 5 before it is available on DVD. We are assuming that season 5 will be available either on Hulu.com by then, or on ABC.com. If it is not available at either place, we will adjust the schedule accordingly. However, we hope it won’t come to that, as the current schedule has us finishing all five seasons just in time for the start of Season 6 without too many episodes each week for an average person to follow.
What You, the readers, have to Do
- Starting Monday each week watch the episodes designated on the schedule at your own pace. Just ensure you’ve completed them all by the following Saturday.
- Every Sunday evening, visit Docarzt.com (or the Lostpedia ReWatch page) and read about all of the new easter eggs and additional analysis on that week’s episodes, based on what we now know from 5 seasons of the show.
- Comment and let us know how rewatching the show now, gives you a different perspective on what might be happening on the island.
That’s it! That’s all you have to do. And we’ve made it easier than ever for you to keep up with all of the great content that the sites mentioned above will be publishing each week.
The Lostpedia Rewatch Hub – This hub page will give you all the info you need to know, links to episode summaries, as well as RSS feeds for the participating sites.
The Lostpedia Official Rewatch Forums – An additional place, outside of the Docarzt comment areas, where you can discuss the rewatch. If you’re already a member of Docarzt.com and would prefer to keep your discussions in our forums, you can do so here.

That about sums it all up. I hope you are all as excited as I am about this rewatch. We will begin next Monday, on June 1, with the first four episodes from season 1.
