Interview with Lost executive producers
mediaVillage has an interesting 2 part interview with Lost executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse.
They discuss Season 3, the critics reaction, and many other things. My favorite being their observation that the fans want to go so far with the theories that it is hard to see them ever satisfied,
Like Kate's toy plane, Lindelof explains,
We basically said we're going to tell a subsequent flashback story that [connects] the plane to a time capsule that Kate and a childhood sweetheart buried together and that will be the end of the mystery. But when we revealed it the audience was still saying, "What's up with Kate's plane?" as if maybe there's microfilm inside it or something. So we had to continue and in the finale [of the flashback] the marshal gives this big speech before Kate gets on the plane. You want to know the story of the [little] plane? He breaks it entirely down. But there it is on that list of 50 unanswered mysteries!
Check out the interview and give the writers a break. Lost is having a great 3rd season, last weeks episode kicked serious butt.
