Damon Lindelof says LOST might not have lasted more than three seasons without the Internet

Damon Lindelof

Damon Lindelof was the keynote speaker at the New York Television Fest on Thursday, and he had a lot of very interesting things to say about the history of LOST. An audiotape of the talk is posted at Dark UFO. These are some excerpts from a write-up at


[After Damon met J.J. Abrams to talk about the show, he started coming up with ideas.]

“The biggest issue with a desert island show was the audience is going to get very frustrated that the characters were not getting off the island,” [Damon] said. “My solution was, hey, let’s get off the island every week. And the way we’re going to do that is we’re going to do these flashbacks.

We’ll do one character at a time and there’s gonna be like 70 characters on the show, so we’ll go really, really slow, and each one will basically say, here’s who they were before the crash and it’ll dramatize something that’s happening on the island and it will also make the show very character-centric.”

Abrams liked the idea, and also had another: “‘There should be a hatch on this island! They spend the entire season trying to get it open. And there should be these other people on the island,'” Lindelof recalled Abrams saying. “And I’m like, ”We can call them The Others.’ And he’s like, ‘They should hear this noise out there in the jungle.’ And I’m like, ‘What’s the noise?’ And he’s like, ‘I don’t fucking know. They’re never gonna pick this thing up anyway.'”

(More) Michael Emerson on the David Letterman Show

In honor of the “Person of Interest” premiere tonight, here’s a clip of Michael Emerson on the David Letterman show a couple of weeks ago (on September 6, 2011).

You may have already seen the first half (either on this blog or elsewhere) where Emerson talks about playing Ben on LOST — if not, it’s definitely worth watching. In the second half of the clip, Emerson tells an anecdote about his early stage-acting days, and David Letterman plays a clip from Emerson’s first screen role — in an instructional video for a prison.

Here’s a clip of Michael Emerson (wearing his “Person of Interest” sideburns) last night on the David Letterman show.

He talks about when he first started on LOST and about how the character of Benjamin Linus will be associated with him forever, for better or for worse. He’s funny when he talks about meeting people who have, bizarrely, named their babies after Ben.
