10 Years After LOST Premiered, Damon Lindelof Reveals Why He “Broke Down Sobbing” and Opens Up About Show’s Legacy

This is a good read and I recommend reading the whole thing, but I really just love this:

I hope it’s remembered for the experience that happened in the six days in between the airings of the episodes. As a TV viewer, for so long I had been feeling, with the exception of some of the things that were happening on cable like The Sopranos, that there weren’t really any watercooler shows that gave that feeling of, ‘I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen next.’ The last time I had really experienced that feeling on network TV was with the X-Files and then more recently Alias, which I was just as obsessed with as you were.

It was about that level of anticipation. I understand that Christmas morning is really important. But I’m a Christmas Eve guy. The level of excitement that I felt as a kid on Christmas Eve, and now as a parent that I watch my kid experience, that sense of anticipation and excitement, I just feel like it’s so hard to generate that feeling in people. We are inclined to be cynical because we protect ourselves from potential disappointment, but just that sense of, ‘Oh I really can’t wait for this’ is so cool. As much as I love binge-viewing myself, you cannot experience that while binge-watching a show. I binge-watched the first two seasons of Breaking Bad and then I was caught up for season three, and then I started to have that feeling of like, ‘Oh my god, it’s so exciting now that I’m now anticipating what is going to happen next.’

The other thing I remember so fondly is that feeling that you were a part of something. The feeling that you were a part of this community of people who were watching the show and arguing about this show and theorizing about this show and and just the intense speculation about the mythology. The passion in people’s voices when they would talk about the show.  

I think that the show was so full of life for so long and that’s what I would wish is to just kind of remember that level of excitement that people experienced as they were watching the show.”

Omg, I can’t even… with the Gmail and “other” notifications. It drives me nuts when I have “1” and I need to clear that out as fast as possible. This is giving me the shakes!

favorite ship- ron/hermione

Ron had had a fit of gallantry and insisted that Hermione sleep on the cushions from the sofa, so that her silhouette was raised above his. Her arm curved to the floor, her fingers inches from Ron’s. Harry wondered whether they had fallen asleep holding hands.

There are some people out there that still believe that animals are just dumb beasts, but the unlikely animal friendships I’ve gathered here will prove that they are capable of feeling love and compassion just like we are.
