Told You So

I don’t like to say I told you so, but I really, really want to.

I likened the writers of Lost to con men or derivative traders who “are shamelessly abusing their viewers’ trust. They rack up the profits from bizarre and outrageous  turns in character and plot without any intention of ever repaying the emotional investment.”

Today in the Post, in Lisa de Moraes always excellent TV column, we read that Lost co-creators Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse have said they aren’t going to even try to tie up all the zillions of lose plot ends. Their excuse: not enough time.

Lisa goes on to say, “If you’re expecting they will nonetheless come through with some kind of post-finale TV special, online chat, tweet — anything! — to answer their rabid fans’ lingering head-scratchers, you need to think again. They have no intention of discussing the show after the finale airs on May 23.”

No, I reckon not. And from now on they are only going to use untraceable cell phones and travel under assumed names.
