Amanda on last night's Lost episode:
09:38PM [amanda] it was like 'hey remember when we had a polar bear in the 1st season?' 'uhh...no.' 'well we totally did, let us make it eat Eko, that will be bad ass'
09:39PM [amanda] 'oh rock, can we animate it with really shitty cgi?'
09:39PM [amanda] "Yes!'
09:39PM [amanda] this Lost writers' meeting brought to you by Amanda Harasty
The Lost writers really do have it good. They have the best of both worlds: endless potential for assorted basic-but-entertaining drama in the flashbacks and backstory, combined with the freedom to have an entire episode devoted to fighting a giant polar bear.
