LOST ends and LG15 comparison

So Lonelygirl15 often elicited comparisons to LOST back in the day. Not because it shared its production values, but because of its coolness and burgeoning mythology. An article in the NY Times a few days ago could almost have been written about lg15. It gives pause to the question of whether the "interactivity" sought after by some webseries is also affecting regular television.

...To keep the story going, the producers of “Lost” resorted to inflation, adding more plot points and more characters at the cost of coherence. A spooky tale about plane crash survivors on a strange island [Ed. note: or a girl in a bedroom?] increasingly became a labored allegory about free will and destiny, individualism and solidarity. Mystery began to give way to mythology.

  1. The worst part about shows like Lost and web series like LG15 is that with no answers to the mysteries created by the story teller(s), everyone who thinks they are intelligent (even if they are not) will explain their opinion (and that's all it is, an opinion) about what everything meant. Ultimately it is the responsibility of the story teller to do this and in the case of Lost and LG15, they both failed to do so.

  2. what you consider the worst part they likely consider the only part.

  3. You're probably right. I should have pointed out that what I think is the worst part is just my opinion and I probably think I'm intelligent even though I may not be.
