Catch up with Lost in just eight minutes

Given up on Lost a while ago and not sure you want to rejoin it for its final season? Silly you/poor you without Sky. The last season ended brilliantly.

But I feel your pain, so here, in just eight minutes, you can catch up with everything that’s happened in the last five seasons so you’ll be ready for season six. It leaves out a couple of important details (such as Jacob’s off-island activities), but it’ll at least help you get up to speed and understand what’s been going on.
