As Season 5 kicks off, our survivors are split into two groups; on and off the Island. Jack has been bestowed the mission of getting the Off-Island group to “go back”, but things get a little more complicated when Hurley is falsely accused of a triple homicide.

The Others make a return after a season long absence as well.

Kevin and Ben discuss their thoughts on the Season overall, the method in which the Island was moved, the special features on the DVD and Blu Ray, superlatives galore, and much more. Continue reading From Broadcast Depth – Episode 44: ‘Theres No Place Like Home’ Parts 1, 2, and 3 (Season 4 Finale)
