Everything Bad is Good for You: Lost Edition

By genre, Lost is a disaster narrative — closest in spirit to the
airplane disaster movies over the seventies, which were as a genre so
awful that they spawned an entire sub-genre of parodies. But Lost’s
creator J. J. Abrams — who co-wrote and directed the show’s
breaktaking two-hour opening episode — announced in the very first
seconds of the show that this was no Airport 77 remake.

Steven Johnson, author of Emergence and Everything Bad Is Good for You, writes about ABC’s Hit TV show Lost and how it is a leading example of his theory. A great primer for someone looking to dig deeper into the show.
