LOST Spoilers - DarkUFO

Thanks to the TheGlassEye for the following

I just found the following live chat transcript on CHUD.com. The author of the article gets lots of industry journalism-level access to things and it looks like he got the chance to chat with Damon and Carlton about the Lost S4 DVD and some tidbits about S5! I will warn you that there's a bit of strong language.

It's over! Here's the complete chat log from today's Lost event with Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse.

I'm sitting in a chat room with Lost creators Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse right now, chatting about the Lost Season 4 DVD/Blu-Ray and the upcoming fifth season of the hit show. I'm presenting you with the live questions and answers as they happen! Keep checking back for the next hour or so to get the first word on Lost season 5!

As Lindelof and Cuse answer questions, I'm getting to watch special features from the season 4 DVD. Playing right now is an amazing feature, a TV conspiracy special about the Oceanic 6. The basic conceit is that the producers of the show don't believe the Oceanic 6's story, and they've gone into great detail to debunk it. They even compare Jack's hair on the day he boarded the plane to the day he washed up with the other survivors! It's a very in-depth, very cool special feature. I've been feeling down on DVD features - too many people are doing cookie cutter bullshit - but this makes the purchase worth it, to me.

Q: By having shorter seasons now, do you feel the storytelling has become much easier -- or do you feel regret and often go "man, it would be great to have three more episodes?"

Damon Lindelof: The storytelling has never been easy... but we've always felt that "less is more." The complaint that we got most often in the first couple seasons of the show is that we were not moving the story forwards fast enough -- "stalling" -- which, unfortunately, is a necessary tactic when you're doing 25 episodes a year. The truth is that we actually liked those episodes low on incident ("Claire sends a message on a bird, anyone?"), but the show is much more fun to write when we can just power through and give you guys a hearty meal as opposed to a zillion little courses that never quite get you full.
