Lost, the show about survivors of a plane crash on a mysterious island, arrived on television in a very traditional sense.

From the Lost podcasts to the Lost video game (Lost: Via Domus) and Lost ARGs (alternative reality game), Lost pioneered several metaverse strategies that are now commonplace with the latest Netflix and Disney Plus TV shows.
