It can be easy to forget just how big a deal Lost was when it first aired It was a show that had many of us glued to the screen when it was on and almost always ended with a scene that would have us talking until a new episode was available.
It was true ‘water cooler’ television and as we have moved into the binging age since, there has not really been anything like it in the years that followed its 2010 conclusion.
Airing on ABC in America for six seasons, the plane crash drama may have ruffled some feathers with a divisive ending, but the journey to get to the conclusion is one of the finest you will come across and if you have never seen it, now is your chance to experience the whole thing in what would be the ultimate binge.
Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch Lost online.

What is Lost about?
Well, there’s a question that isn’t simple to answer. On the surface, it is a show about the survivors of a plane crash who are stranded on a remote island with seemingly no way of getting home. But this is no ordinary island as there is a large smoke monster that kills people, polar bears, and numerous secrets and surprises awaiting the stranded passengers.
All the action does not take place on the island though as we get flashbacks to the lives of the characters before the crash which gradually shed more light on who they are – and whether they are who they claim to be. There’s twists and turns right from the start with Lost and it’s a show like no other – and one that really pushed serialised storytelling in TV to the forefront with its impact still felt to this day.
How many seasons of Lost are there?
There are six seasons of Lost, running at various lengths. The first three seasons are the standard 22 episode+ length with the first being the longest, while seasons four through to six are slightly shorter. There are 121 episodes in total.
