Pretty comprehensive.

Ok, so it wasn't some meta LOST joke thing?

No, it was actually a web page with cartoon representations of all the Lost characters for each season... synopsis on each one.  Kindof neat.

MIB: "Like say...more trouble than getting turned into black smoke that takes the form of dead people?"

Jacob: "Okay, you really need to get over that."

"Deleted" scene.

I disagree with Chuck thinking that Alpert isn't an important character, though.  Mainly b/c Chuck is a fucking idiot.  And I didn't cry.

Is that what I think?

Quote
It was OK.  A whole emotional backstory for Alpert that seemed very close to Desmond/Penny and it seemed unnecessary for what is effectively a minor character.

Yes.

So, minor = unimportant?  Wow.  The shit you learn...

Bumped for some regular fucking mindreading.

Bump for this excerpt from Alan Sepinwall's new book that appeared on Grantland the other day.

Some interesting back story on the creation of the show and further confirming that "making it up as they went along" stuff.

Quote
ESQ: Did you ever get trapped in any corners while writing the show?

CC: I think a lot of times we intentionally painted ourselves into corners. As Damon used to say, "Well, then we'll just walk up the wall." That was a fun part of the storytelling to create challenges for ourselves. The only place we ever got stuck was when we did things we regretted doing, not that they were narrative cul-de-sacs but like Nikki and Paulo. That was an example of a story idea where once we'd initiated it we regretted having done it. Or, on a smaller scale, when we told the story of Jack flashing back to Thailand and how he got his tattoos, we really regretted that we had decided that was a worthy flashback story. That story became really instrumental in convincing ABC that we needed to end the show. We were like, "Okay, this is what flashbacks look like now so it's probably a good idea if we figure out how much longer this show is actually going to go."

DL: We did 121 hours of Lost. Arguably only 15 to 20 of them were subpar, bordering on turds. It would be great to pretend those episodes never happened, but I love the fact that we're still talking about Nikki and Paulo. Sometimes the mistake, the thing that wasn't good, is the thing that's really part of the legacy of a show like ours.

ESQ: What was the worst episode of Lost?

CC: I mean, I think the episode where Jack gets his tattoos in Thailand. I think it's cringe-worthy, where he's flying the kite on the beach. It was not our finest hour. We used Matthew Fox's real tattoos. That's how desperate we were for flashback stories.
