  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
The castaways are still Lost on the island, and they discover more about their archenemies

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD can look very good, with impressive resolution, deep blacks, and adequate shadow delineation. Colors are bold and vibrant, but fleshtones can have a reddish appearance (although with, presumably, little in the way of suntan lotion, this could be done on purpose). There are many instances when the imagery can look smeared, however, and in darker scenes noise is noticeable. Edge enhancement is minor and generally only distracting on the highest contrast transitions, but pixel breakup and compression artifacts can be recognized at times. (Danny Richelieu)
