We’ve collected the best Carlton Cuse Quotes. Use them as an inspiration.
I think ‘Lost‘ was really a pioneer in the use of the kind of connection between a television show and the Internet, and the Internet really gave fans an opportunity to create a community around the show. That was something that wasn’t really planned; it just sort of grew up in the wake of the show.
I think there’s this essential human desire to have a unified field theory. Everyone is like, ‘I want to unlock the single secret to ‘Lost.’ There isn’t any one secret. There is not a unified field theory for ‘Lost,’ nor do we think there should be, because philosophically, we don’t buy into that as a conceit.
I took physics, and lo and behold, there’s a lot of physics in ‘Lost.’ I think for most people, liberal arts educations are more abstract, but for me, it’s been a chance to apply the things I’ve learned more directly. I also took some Folklore and Mythology classes, and I think that a lot of that influenced me.
As we began working toward the finale of ‘Lost,’ I knew there was no possible ending that was going to be universally loved, and I accepted that. We ended the story the way we wanted it to end, and we stand by it. On my Twitter feed, I still get ten to fifteen positive comments for every negative one.
