Default The Crossing



This was on last night, premiere.

It is from the Lost creators I believe.

The first episode was interesting.

Yeah, I'm going to wait on this one. I have trouble with the creators of lost, since they made that show such a lore nightmare that it sucked the joy out of watching it, and getting through the series became a joyless death match at times.

I remember watching lost, and having a dedicated group of lost watchers as friends.

I remember the reaction at first.

"They're in some kind of purgatory"

Then the creators did an interview "They're not in purgatory, its much cooler"

Then it happened

"Hey they're pretty much in purgatory"

True story:

Watched The Crossing with my 12 yr old last night.

UCB: This is from the creators of a show called Lost. Your mom and I like it, until the end.

Boy: Yeah isn't that one of the worst endings in TV history dad?

All they needed to do was add this to the ending of lost



And it would have been the most epic TV prank ever pulled.

This has nothing to do with anyone involved in Lost.

The promos say, "From the network that brought you Lost". While this is technically true, they could also have said, "From the network that brought you Perfect Strangers" and it would have been just as relevant.
