They really mocked us along the past six years… Furey warned us in 2005
Like many of you I’m really pissed off by the lack of answers that our “beloved” Lost writers gave to us (they were really lost all along the seasons). So I’ve been checking very often this site hoping that some enlightened mind presents a theory explaining some mysteries and I have to admit that some of you must seriously think about the possibility of making career in the writing area. This site works like a therapy for me it shows me that I’m not alone in the frustration of being despised by the writers and I think that the way to overcome it is to continue to visit this site and share all the information/ideas/theories/etc that comes to our minds. Thank you so much emzi for making this site. It was a great idea. For the “wanting for answers” haters please do us a favor and let us discuss our frustrations in peace and let us theorize because if you are satisfied the way Lost ended you certainly don’t have any questions or theories to share. So if it is to annoy us please stop visiting this site.
Now that I have my bag empty (I feel much better now) I will share with you what I have found in the Internet (I apologize if anyone has referred to this before).
I found this:
On October 6, 2005, David Furey (Fury was a co-executive producer and writer for the first season of Lost), gave an interview to “Rolling Stone” (issue #984), here’s an excerpt:
“there was absolutely no master plan on Lost” insists David Fury, a co-executive producer last season who wrote the series’s two best episodes and is now a writer-producer on 24. “anybody who said that was lying. On a show like Lost, it becomes a great big shaggy-dog story,” he continues cheerily. They keep saying there’s meaning in everything, and I’m here to tell you no – a lot of things are just arbitrary. What I always tried to do was connect these random elements, to create the illusion that it was all adding up to something.” Many plot elements were concocted on the fly, Fury says; for example, they didn’t know Hurley won the lottery until it came time to write his episode. “I don’t like to talk about when we come up with ideas,” Lindelof demurs. “It’s a magic trick. But we planned that plot: We seeded references to it in earlier episodes.” Fury disagrees. He says scenes with those references were filmed much later and inserted into earlier yet-to-air episodes: “it’s a brilliant trick to make us look smart. But doing that created a huge budget problem.”
If this is actually true, it means that they have mocked us along the past six years.
I wish I had read this in 2005…
