I’ve been watching the TV series Lost – it’s the only TV show I watch, and it’s the only show I’ve watched on a regular basis in years. I first got interested when I read about how much of an influence the Watchmen was on it. Later Wu pointed to an article mentioning that Robert Anton Wilson was an influence as well.
Here’s a snip from a lengthy interview with the creators:
This is a theme we’re very much exploring in Season 3, this notion of “us versus them.” And who is us? And who is them? I mean I think we all tend to objectify people who we don’t know much about and I think that’s the audience’s view of The Others right now – they are bad, they are the malevolent force on the island. But over the course of the stories we’re going to be telling this season on the show we expect the audience’s view of The Others to change a lot.
