I have seen episode one of Lost season two. I have it on CD in HDTV quality if people want it. My spoiler policy still stands though, post a spoiler in the comments and I will *end* you. That said, I feel quite safe in saying "Holy crap!"

Yeah, I've been told there is *no* let up betwwen S1 finale and S2:1. No "catch your breath" time like there often/usually is with series.

And on that note - Me! Me! Me!

Um, if I'm actually able to play the damn thing. I have no idea what "HDTV" quality means (I can guess it stands for High Definition Television, or some such, but don't know what that actually *means*). It plays on computer CD-ROM drive? DVD drive? Regular DVD player? What software needed? Considering the 13 episodes of season 1 that I downloaded wouldn't/couldn't play on my computer and I didn't know what I needed to do nor how to do it.

I have Windows Media and (I think) PowerDVD. I don't think I have anything else.

Don't suppose you've any idea when RTE's actually going to get season 2, do you? Claire and I were half-hoping it'd be straight away, and that's why they wanted to finish up season 1 so fast, but we've sense enough not to actually expect that to be the case :)

You're pretty much right about the HDTV thing, its just a very high quality video. It'll play in a computer (assuming it has the right video compression codecs installed - windows will usually go off and get them itself however but I'll check if anything special is needed.

I have no idea when RTE will show season two, I'd lay bets on it being next summer though but I could be wrong, rte is one of about four channels in the world that actually have the show syndicated. Either way I'll have a new episode each week with luck.

Colm has banned me from watching season 2 until it starts on RTE, he is a spoils sport.

He is also talking to himself unless *someone* forgot to log him out and log herself in again before posting :)

Can't help but agree with that... As usual I urgently need another fix of Lost to go on... Have you per any chance, managed to find other season two episodes, other than the first one? :-o.

There are no other episodes yet - the first one aired in the states last thursday, episode two is on tomorrow night. To be honest, I prefer (and find it easier) to watch loads of episodes back to back but my patience isn't up to waiting several months for that luxury.
