Yep, the first episode was good. I think it's going to be on for 6 or 7 weeks, like a "mini season" with a cliffhanger, and then it won't be back on for 3 months, then uninterrupted until the end of the season in May.

Yup, they seem to do this with each series. I wonder if it's because they are actually changing the storylines to something other than what they planned, or if it's just to fit in with some bizarre ABC Network airtime issues.

Like some kind of magic idiot I watched every episode of the first season then successfully missed every episode of season 2. Never floated my boat quite like 24 though...

The main reason has been because in the past few years the format of programmes has changed a bit, in terms of them having story arcs that span the entire season, rather than just a beginning-middle-end story per episode (off the top of my head, something like Quantum Leap, where it didn't really matter if you dipped in and out of it).

What they do in the US is have gaps of several weeks between episodes, so they tend to show old episodes in the same timeslot - so if you've got something like 24, Alias, or Lost, (which have complex storylines compared to a lot of other shows) people get confused if they see an episode from 2 series ago, so they start them off in January to give them an uniterrupted run of 22 episodes.

It doesn't matter QUITE so much with something like E.R. or CSI because although there may be stories about the character's personal lives that run through each series, they're not the main focus of it - the weekly disease/murder is.

(I know WAY too much about this...) :thinking:

Ok here we go,

Lost Complete Season 2 - Region 2 - £28.99 of less delivered.

http://www3.cd-wow.com/detail_results_2.php?product_code=371218&subcat=region2

This dvd is region 2 but the japanese edition, however is exactly the same as the uk version. I ordered the season 1 version earlier in the year, and no problems whatsoever.

Prehaps i should post this as a deal seperately.

The first two seasons of Lost were shown in clusters of two or three episodes at a time (a few weeks on, a few weeks off) because they could not make them any faster even with two crews working simultaneously and, importantly, because ABC needed to have new episodes broadcast during the sweeps weeks even if that meant creating a delay before sweeps. 'Sweeps' weeks in the US are when viewer-ratings are measured to set advertising rates. Shows like 24 are shown consecutively because they're on other networks which are willing to sacrifice sweeps numbers for the sake of keeping viewers happy - and it's only due to the producers of Lost now having enormous power within ABC that they've been able to insist that season 3 be shown in two chunks this time.

I'm confused now, why do they have the 7 week interval then, so they can 'start' the rest of the series after however many episodes we've had and then run uninterrupted?

I see, so we'll have 2 chunks, rather than sporadic episodes?

Yep. It's not for nothing that Jack, K and S have been split off from the others - makes it easier to film episodes (about different groups of characters, with different crews) simultaneously. The 'tailies' episode in series 2 - about the first 40 days of the people from the tail section was a 'catch up' opportunity for the makers - made in parallel with different actors.

Similarly, that's why Eastenders and Corrie always have a week's worth of episodes where a group of people leave the normal environment (e.g. Sally and Kevin going to Paris or when Janine killed Barry in Eastenders) - so that they can do normal filming on set, and week's worth of episodes on location at the same time, meaning everyone gets the week off at xmas. Trufax!

And I can't believe I KNOW this rubbish...
