Honest Bender: Lost was stupid. No one cares anymore.
JohnBigBootay: I don't often go back and watch recent shows. But I will say that in my 45 years of on again off again tv watching life that I probably looked as forward to this show as any I can recall. Particularly when it was all weird sciencey with faraday and shiat. I think that's worth quite a bit whether or not I was completely satisfied with the direction it took. I was hoping it went in the crazy physics direction instead of the mystical route.
CPennypacker: I gave up on lost when I realized that the show was moving so slow it was actually a big meta-flashback full of flashbacksIt was like season 2 and one of the characters said something like "We've been on this island almost 60 days" and I had been on it for two years.I was done
Lyonid: Summary:Q: "Why did 'x' happen?"A: "Because magic."/unimpressed
soporific: Big questions like why did the Others want Walt and what were they doing to him?
soporific: Lost is the reason there will never be another Lost.
The Flexecutioner: prometheus was a gorgeous movie with eye-candy galore. and an awful lindelof story. that guy sucks.
NoxNoctus: Whoever wrote that article needs his/her reproductive bits removed, bronzed, and force fed to the author.
DontMakeMeComeBackThere: I heard an interview with Lindelof on NPR just before Prometheus came out. He talked about writing stories that posed deep, interesting questions and said (paraphrasing) that he didn't think it was his place to answer the questions.What a hack - It's your farking story, it's your farking reality...it's your farking job as the writer to answer the questions YOU created in your work of fiction.dipshiat
quizzical: The producers themselves set up the expectation, through their interviews in season 1 and 2, that everything would be explained in a somewhat realistic manner and nods to pseudoscience. Given that expectation, I think it's silly that the producers are surprised that fans don't like "Magic" as an answer.
Treize26: Is no one familiar with Chekhov's Gun?
Slaxl: A lot of people forget that their constant whining about "oh they're making it up as they go along" and "damnit just give me answers" movement became quite popular so the network ended up ordering the writers to finish to a deadline, so there wasn't enough time to answer everything. We could still be being mystified by continued mystery today but no.I enjoyed being mystified more than I cared about the answers.
