    “the most critically-acclaimed drama series of 2017”

    Was hoping that a wholly original story would be next.

    Fuck an original story, I want this now! Thank God Zack Snyder can’t get his grubby little hands on this. Perhaps Lindelof can (quickly) reunite with some Leftovers cast members

    Wow just reread this last week. Hope they only make it a limited series though, I don’t want them to stretch it out too long. I’m only familiar with Lindelof with his TV work, and I was one of the few who loved season one of The Leftovers (which was adapted from a book), so I am really excited about this.

    I loved season 1 too!

    I hope he does get involved. I’ll be very excited about this anyways, the movie was actually pretty good, and I think with someone better than Snyder behind it, and more time to flesh the story out it’ll be much better.

    Did you only watch the last two episodes of Lost too?

    First of all, the end of Lost does make sense. They just don’t spell everything out and give you the answers like many TV shows do. I actually enjoy the side world story in season six more than the island story. It’s a beautiful little journey to encapsulate what the characters have gone through so far and is the perfect (and only) way to end a show like Lost. Teridax, I highly recommend watching Lost. If you don’t like after watching it, then I respect that. But I think that whether you like the finale or not, the show as a whole is worth it.

    As for Watchmen, each of the 12 books tells a pretty complete story. They could just make each book into an episode, 12 episodes total, and you’ve got a solid limited series.

    Oh I’m not saying the finale was the greatest thing ever. I think there are plenty of better finales. I think The Leftovers had a better finale and was a better overall show. But I do think that there was no other way Lindelof and Cuse could have ended Lost. And I also think that if The Leftovers was as widely watched as Lost was, that it too would have been a divisive ending. Maybe not as polarizing, but still a divisive ending.

    And don’t worry, I’m not trying to start an argument. I just figured we’re on a site that’s all about entertainment and we’re talking about Lindelof right now, so I figured I’d suggest you watch Lost. I completely understand if you don’t want to watch it though. It is a long investment for an ending that might not satisfy you. I just thought I’d throw it out there 🙂
