washington Post article
Written 11th March
Did anyone see the March 2, 2010 article from the Washington Post? It begins: “Many of the questions posed during the run of “Lost” that have been keeping you up at night are never going to be answered on the show but will instead be tossed on the compost heap like an old turnip, because, the writers say, they have run out of time.” The author appears to be exaggerating a bit ‘cos Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse were saying that “There’s a lot of little questions that unfortunately we just don’t have time to answer in the amount of time that we have left” (Cuse) and “”Now that we’re [preparing] the finale, we’re not at all having the experience of ‘Oh, my God, we forgot to do this!'” (Lindelof). “We feel like the show should stand on its own,” Cuse said. “We’re actually not going to comment on the show after the finale. We want everybody to basically be able to continue the dialogue. . . . We don’t think it’s really appropriate for us to say, ‘Oh, here is the official definition for what we meant by any particular moment on the show.’ ” I get that they cannot address everything and some will be left up for discussion by fans, but the line, “we’re out of luck if we’re waiting to find out who exactly was the economist Sayid shot on the golf course” is a little distrurbing if it implies that many of these little, yet interesting questions will remain unanswered. What are your reactions as fans of LOST and this site?
