recently had the privilege of speaking with Lost
executive producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof. Any new Lost
information is worth acquiring and, while they may not gotten too specific, Cuse and Lindelof addressed the perceived downturn in quality that plagued the show in its six-episode Fall mini-season.
Media Village's Ed Martin conducted the exclusive interview for MV. Here is an excerpt:
MediaVillage: Were you surprised at the level of concern expressed by critics about the direction the story took last fall and their frustration about the many unresolved mysteries on the show?
Damon Lindelof: In my opinion the really good critics embrace the fact that they're fans. I find there is a very rare instance where your fan brain is having one reaction and your critical brain is having another. The level at which questions are asked of us is polarizing. You can tell it's personal. If they don't like it, it's like they're almost offended in a way.
