a writer's meeting for the new season of lost

Writer 1: So, how are we going to explain the polar bears, mysterious cloud of smoke, the island's strange magnetic field, the Others, and the pregnant women always dying story-lines?

Writer 2: "Explain"? What do you mean?

Writer 1: Y'know, flesh out those ideas a little more, give the viewer some answers.

Writer 3: I'm not following.

Writer 1: Well, don't you think we owe the viewer some kind of explanation for all of the crazy things that have happened in the last three seasons?

Writer 2: that necessary?

Writer 1: Hmm, good point. Let's completely pretend none of that ever happened, and take the show in a whole new direction.

Writer 3: Yeah! There should be lots of flash forwards and flash backs, I love those.

Writer 1: Excellent idea! And that way, the viewer will be so confused and disoriented, they won't even know we aren't giving them any answers! Great work, team. Now let's get out there and make some crappy television.
