Re: Lost: Cool new video short!


One complaint I heard about the show in season 3 was that they were "dragging" out some of the show's mysteries. I don't have this complaint because a) I watched all three seasons on DVD in one shot; and b) I like mysteries. Twin Peaks was ruined by revealing the central mystery earlier than the creator wanted, so I enjoy seeing Lost revel in its mystery.
"Most smart people cannot watch most TV, because it has generally been a condescending medium, explaining everything immediately, offering no ambiguities, and using dialogue that simplifies and mitigates against the idiosyncratic ways in which people in different worlds actually communicate. It eventually requires that characters from different places talk the same way as the viewer. This, of course, sucks." - David Simon
