Alan Sepinwall on the origins of 'Lost' - Grantland
Jared Sperli stashed this in tv
Stashed in: LOST!
As the show continued to be wildly popular in those early weeks, Lindelof says, "I was completely and totally creatively crippled by people saying two things: 1) 'How are they going to keep this up?' And I had no idea. 2) 'They better have really satisfying answers to all these mysteries.' And I was like, 'We have satisfying answers for all the character ones.'"
That is exactly what made LOST both so great and so frustrating.
They did NOT have satisfying answers for the myriad plot questions.
But their characters were top-notch, and the human conflict was amazing to watch.
So many triangles; so many things-are-not-as-they-seem; so many possibilities...
