relost-s1-copy2It 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:

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

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

The Lost Rewatch Twitter page – Follow all the updates via Twitter.

The Lost Rewatch Facebook page – Keep up with the Lost Rewatch via Facebook.

In addition, Docarzt.com has a special RSS feed to allow you to follow all of the Lost Rewatch related posts.  We’ve included an email link where you can sign up with your email address, and be sent email alerts anytime Docarzt.com publishes new Lost Rewatch content.  As a note, anyone who sent me an email requesting updates on the Rewatch, please use the email link above to sign up for automatic emails about new posts.

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.  If you get behind or can’t watch them with us, we hope that you’ll still visit the site each week to see the great new analysis that we have on the previous season’s episodes.

  • Zeouterlimits

    The re-watch I’m involved in has already started

    • docarzt

      That’s fine, and we understand there are other rewatch efforts out there – how about as a general rule we not spam them here. Feel free to post them in the forums, but advertising a different re-watch in our re-watch thread is kinda… well…

      • Zeouterlimits

        Oops, apologies, didn’t mean it so much as advertising as just pointing out we had the same idea and that it was going well. Apologies.

        • docarzt

          It’s no problem really. Feel free to mention it anywhere except on our rewatch threads. My fear is that folks may wander over and get the schedules confused, and what not.

  • Or buy the dvds en third world. Usually they are oficially for sale long before December in other countries.

    • KeepingAwake

      Chule,

      The country codes have to match. Foreign DVD’s won’t play on other countries’ machines.

  • richie

    im in already, doc, this is a fantastic idea! even if i dont get to watch them all at least there’s new stuff to read from you guys, awesome.

  • Andy

    What about Lost: Missing Pieces? That should be worked into the schedule as well.

    • Woodc

      yeah deffo, they are on youtube and season 4 dvd. btw season 5 is on graboid guys, thats how i get it, but i also buy the dvds for the bonus features

  • DarthBubba

    Count me in. . . I’m finally going to be able to take advantage of being a caveman! I used my VCR to tape every episode. . . that’s right, I’m old-school! 😉

    • Woodc

      Dude!

      • now tell me that you are a real hardcore nerd such as myself and taped them all with no commercials

  • hi! i’m trying to find an appropriate place to ask this. hopefully this is it.

    i just started my own LOST blog doing this same thing within the last week or so. i’d really like to join the list of bloggers and i’m not sure how or if i even can. if anyone has any info, i’d really appreciate it! thanks!

    ps. i already have part one and two of the pilot up. i am working on tabula rasa as i type this. i’ll hold off on posting anymore and post along with the rewatch, regardless if i can get on the list in case anyone wants to check me out, too. thanks again!

    • AstroJones

      Sara,
      Shoot me an email at astrojones@gmail.com and we’ll see what we can do about getting you involved. Thanks!

  • scott kendrick

    Greetings from the UK!

    I am soooo looking forward to this rewatch experience, i have got my girlfriend involved who has only seen seasons 4 & 5 of Lost so it will be an experience for her too!

    Counting down to season 6 *sob*

    • rob

      lol. man, cant imagine how “lost” youd be just starting out at season 4. what a mess. even with the prehash before the premieres and finales. soooo much to catch her up on. think how many characters never made it that far. crazy.

  • Yay! Count me in, too.
    Finally, I’ll be enjoying this last hiatus more than ever.
    I think I’m going to translate some of the major threads & observations from The Lost Rewatch into german and blog them on my own blog if that’s ok with you, Doc(?).

    • Thanks for the grant, guys!

  • Steven

    FYI, you’ve got Thanksgiving break a week too early. Only reason I noticed is because I’ll be out of town that week and need to not miss anything. lol

  • halla

    probably stupid question but where can I watch the episodes? Anyone know?

    • rob

      as far as i know, abc.com has them all, up through s5.

  • Andy

    On DVD.

  • If you don’t have a DVD, or Internet Explorer, here you go:

    http://tvshack.net/tv/Lost/

    • If you like to watch the Show in high definition, there are several possibilities to download the episodes in 720p.HD-quality (and that’s the one and only way I would recommend to watch Lost). It’s not very legal, therefore I won’t post real links.

      There’s a bay for P2P-pirates, you know what I mean. On the german site serienjunkiesorg (with a dot in-between) you’ll find every single episode of highest quality (just ignore the ones that are tagged as german dubbed).

      You know that I don’t want you to go there. 😉 Not at any time! 8)

      It won’t buy you the DVD-extras, so you’ll still have to buy them on DVD/Bluray.

      • johr77

        why not just say you can get them from usenet servers and not advertise

  • yeah should be great. going to get invested in the losties all over again. i am sure we will have a list of things we want explaining going into ‘the final season’ it truly is the greatest story of our generation.

  • Uncle Beaver

    I’m gonna re-watch the entire show again for the 4th or 5th time (depending on the season), but I’m gonna wait ’till Seasons 1 and 2 come out on Blu-ray in 2 weeks.

    Every time I’ve re-watched, I try to catch as many easter-eggs as possible, but I always forget ’cause the story is so involving.
