Topic: Top 20 DVDs of 2005
Message: 1. Lost: The Complete First Season
Exploding on the television scene with one of the most intense opening sequences of any pilot episode, Lost almost immediately became a phenomenon, that rare breed of show that not only brings in the monster ratings but also achieves a level of cult popularity with its fans. The tale of the survivors of Oceanic Flight 815 is a gripping one, creating a diverse group of compelling characters working together in common pursuit, all the while developing a layered mythology to this strange island on which they have crash landed. With a unique flashback style of character development, Lost's first season weaves the events from the passengers' pasts with what is happening in the present to craft thematic episodes that stand strong on their own in addition to helping build the overall story arc. By the 4th episode, you'll be completely hooked, and by season's end, you'll be tearing out your hair wanting more. Thankfully, Buena Vista Home Entertainment has given this breakout hit a DVD release worthy of its popularity. With audio commentaries, deleted scenes, audition sessions, hours of behind-the-scenes footage, and the beautiful "Art of Matthew Fox" feature, "Lost - The Complete First Season" is an example of what every modern television release should be, and it is without question one of the top DVDs of the year.

Topic: Top 10 Television Releases on DVD in 2005
Message: 1. The Twilight Zone (The Definitive Edition) - Seasons 1, 2, & 3
In easily one of the most impressive DVD releases of the year, Image Entertainment finally gave The Twilight Zone the treatment it so richly deserved. With gorgeous new transfers from high-definition re-masters and a wide array of special features, these releases truly are the definitive versions of Rod Serling's ground-breaking anthology series. Each episode not only looks and sounds as good as technology will allow, but most are accompanied by one or more bonus features including the original CBS network bumpers and advertisements from the original airings. Brand new audio commentaries, archival interview footage, modern radio drama adaptations, isolated scores, clips from modern remakes, and Serling's own Sherwood Oaks College lectures are just some of the features scattered across these episodes. Moreover, the sets include clips of Serling on interview programs, game shows, advertising campaigns, and just about anything else that could be culled from the archives. In every way, these sets live up to their "definitive" name, and they are the no-brainer selection for the top spot on this list.
