Hm, I'm not sure. TBH, it came to my head because of an interview he gave. That interview and Lindelof's have always stuck in my head as contrasts.

Agreed. I thought it was pretty cut and dried.

It's a shame that that's the lesson from Lost. A better lesson would be that you can drag out mysteries as long as you tie them up in satisfying ways in the end. Of course, Lost may have damaged the ability of future shows to do that by failing to deliver and making it less likely that viewers will trust shows with complex, ongoing mysteries.

It's also going on hiatus until March, which is never a good sign.
I don't know the show. I'm certainly not an expert. But I keep seeing articles all over the internet talking about how well the show is doing. Such as this article http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mauree...b_2002248.html which calls the show a "ratings hit."

Again, I don't know. I'm not watching. But I was under the impression it was doing fine.

I'm not sure the hiatus is a sign of trouble. I thought it had always been a planned hiatus. My understanding is that it's to finish up post production and to create a little suspense, much like Lost used to do.

EDIT: I did just see that ratings for the most recent episode were way. So, you're right about the most recent numbers. It'll be interesting to see if it can rebound a bit once it comes back. I don't care either way. The show doesn't look that engaging to me. I figured I'd wait to see if it can make it out of S1 before I start trying to get into it.
