1. “The Lost Interviews.” Todd VanDerWerff interviews Damon Lindelof about 10 episodes from the show’s first season.
“A decade after its debut, Lost seems ever more like a weird, collective dream we all had. A complicated, character-driven sci-fi/fantasy hybrid with heavy elements of horror? And we all watched it? And it was on broadcast network television? When looking at the modern TV landscape, it’s hard to find anything quite so ambitious, especially on the broadcast networks, which increasingly manage toward the margins in a dying business model. ’Even if you fail, people will appreciate you having attempted the harder trick and crashed than just kind of doing the easy stuff,’ said co-creator Damon Lindelof during a 90-minute interview about the show’s first season. He said this wisdom was instilled in him by his fellow co-creator, J.J. Abrams. Abrams would leave the show seven episodes in, but leave an indelible mark upon it: the mark of going for broke, of trying anything, of never settling for the routine.”
