That LOOKED great! Was that shot in dv? Presumably HD whatever it was. Wow, imagine if GL had looked like that. And all of AMC's sets should look like those (rented hotel rooms?). The only downfall is that you can see every skin imperfection, I wouldn't want folks counting my razor bumps and pores, but wow, I am really taken by the look of that and if by any chance that's cheaper than the format they're currently using, they need to make the switcheroo. I'm guessing it's more expensive and was used to look extra stunning on our computer screens.

I have to admit I'm a sucker for these web spin offs--it's interesting that it does look like they were personally going for a telenovela look. I see Sara Saedi, who wrote all the ABC crossover stuff this Summer wrote it, and it was produced and directed by Enza Dolce Nini who direcs nearly all of AMC's location stuff.

    • Yes those videos are footage that was never put on DVD and the WLS people very kindly shared with fans. https://www.youtube.com/@WeLoveSoapsVideo/videos
    • Anyone else watch the uncensored version on Peacock? I was out of town and couldnt see it live on Bravo so I was taken aback at all the profanity and it obiviously not being bleeped out
    • Just started reading Grillo-Marxuach’s statement and already am taken aback by the use of portmanteau of Lindelof and Cause’s names. Were they really called “Dalton”? Hopefully my local library will get the book in some form (I made a request for an audiobook and an ebook) because this sounds like an interesting read.
    • There's a lot of narrative rewriting about Lost because it ticks many of the boxes of what was supposed to be - in terms of diversity, and expansion of network television mindsets - but at the time, the show mostly got buzz in that first season. The second and third seasons got a ton of negative response (especially the third) and even when things stabilized after that, there was a great deal of mockery of the navel-gazing "mystery box" world to help hide that there were no clear plans in place.  Even at the time I remember fans pointing out what hacks Lindelof and Cuse were. That's true for fans and producers in general, but that label has stuck, deservedly so. I always got bad vibes off the show, as well as Desperate Housewives, and consider both to be classic examples of narrative and media hype mattering more than the product itself. I'm sorry to hear just how ugly the atmosphere was backstage at Lost, but I can't say I'm surprised. It's one of those shows where the vileness bled onto the screen, especially in the deaths of those (mostly non-white) who were deemed unworthy.
    • Wow, such an invaluable information, I hope I get this for OLTL one day, but love reading in such detail the history of GH. Thank you!
