Lost UniversityAvailable only on the Blu-ray versions, Lost University is the first-of-its-kind educational experience. Powered by BD-Live, the two-semester program allows students to explore the mysteries, secrets, and stories of Lost from an academic point of view. Take a peek at some Lost University photos.
- HIS 101: Ancient Writing on the Wall: This course will glance into both the culture and history of ancient Egyptian communication through hieroglyphics. The significance of these writings, from their inception to their current state, will be explored over two sessions as we decipher this once forgotten language of the gods.
- LAN 101: Foreign Language for Beginners: This course offers two introductory-level classes that will help prepare the student for any situation in everyday life. Professors break down 15 key phrases through the listen-and-repeat method of learning.
- PHI 101: I Am Lost Therefore I Am: It's no secret that Lost incorporates philosophical themes and references into the show. Delve deeper into who these referenced philosophers really are, and how various philosophical viewpoints and theories relate to the characters and storylines of Lost.
- PHY 101: Introductory Physics of Time Travel: Go beyond the Time Travel explored on Lost and examine some basic physics concepts ranging from the perception of time itself to the realities of traveling through spacetime. Visiting professors active in the field of theoretical physics will discuss these topics over two sessions.
- SCI 101: Jungle Survival Skills: If you ever find yourself stranded on a deserted tropical island, would you know the steps you need to take to survive? This course will give you the basic information to survive until you are rescued.
Which Version Should You GetIf you can play and afford it, the deluxe Blu-ray is the way to go, but it's very expensive. If you are a die-hard fan and want a collectors item, go for the deluxe version. If you just want all the episodes and a few bonuses, save your money and get the regular version.
