One of the best shows on television is about to to kick off the beginning of the end. I’m of course talking about Lost which begins its long-awaited 6th and final season in just a few weeks.

You’ve no doubt heard of this show from both those who love it and from those who hate waiting for answers. If you’re dying to catch-up with the series to watch concluding episodes as they air or if you simply forget all of the craziness that has gone on so far, we have the solution for you!

ABC has released an 8 minute and 15 second long video which recaps all of the major events, plot points and story twists that have occurred throughout the journey we experienced through the first five seasons.

The narrator is pretty comedic and when you think about the basics of each character and the events that have occurred, it’s pretty insane. See for yourself:

The more I think about it, if you’ve not seen any of the first 5 seasons of Lost, this video will likely hurt your brain. I still love it though and I can’t wait to see how the story plays out and just how many of the final big questions get answered. Even if you are new to the show, the ending of this recap will surely capture your interest and you’ll want to know what happens next. That is what Lost is all about and why it is so successful.

Oh, it may be obvious to you but the reason all of these “everything you need to know about Lost” recap videos are 8:15 in running length is because of the infamously cursed numbers present throughout the series: 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42 (Hurley’s winning numbers as seen in the above video). It was also of course Oceanic Flight 815 which crash-landed on the island in the first place, starting this whole mess. Well, I suppose it wasn’t the plane’s fault but Desmond’s… well, we don’t know for sure yet. Or do we?

What do you think of the recap video and are you counting down to the days until we return to the island?

Lost Season 6 (The Final Season) premieres on ABC on February 2, 2010.
