The movie

LOST Season 1 pilot RiffTrax Web Poster


According to "The television phenomenon of our time (no, not "According to Jim") is now the RiffTrax phenomenon of this week! Yes, "Lost", the thrilling saga of a group of castaways – of varying degrees of hotness – and their struggle to survive without having to resort to wholesale drinking of their own urine. "Lost" conveys the wit, intrigue and fierce intelligence of "Gilligan's Island" in a modern setting – and without the mind-shattering annoyance of Bob Denver!

If you like your "Lost" with a little something on the side, you'll love Kevin and Mike's take on the pilot episode." [1]
