“We’re big fans of the show ‘Top Chef,’ ” [Carlton Cuse] explained. “Those guys all run through Whole Foods and they have to pull all of this stuff down — they have to get stuff they might not use in the dish. When they get to the kitchen, they have to decide whether or not they’re going to use it. Our process is kind of the same.”
“There’s a lot of little questions that unfortunately we just don’t have time to answer in the amount of time that we have left,” co-creator Cuse told the uber-fans.
If you read between the lines, it sounds as if Lost creators Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse are hedging their bets against the inevitable tidal wave of disappointment from the show’s final episode.
Not having enough time isn’t good enough since they were the ones who imposed the show’s time limit.
