That's what the creators of Lost said, also. Here's the thing though: I do not believe that.

Didn't they admit that was a lie? Because that is obviously a lie so I don't know why they would bother saying it.

Deal with it.

I think that from everything to SU to GoT it's starting to seem like no TV show should set up such a complex running plot since they always fail to resolve it satisfactorily.

But with SU, it's one of the things that consistently annoys me about discussions around the show since to me it's more about the characters and their specific stories rather than the big wide Homeworld vs Crystal Gems plotline. I don't think something like the mystery of Pink Diamond is that important on it's own and I'd rather see it being just a part of Steven or Pearl's character development.

Lost was made up as it went along after season 2, let's be real here.

Lost did at least remove its filler halfway during season 3 as soon as the writers were told they were only getting six seasons

But then the writers strike happened
and also they were clearly at least making things up on a season by season basis

Most TV is made up as the writers go along. Breaking Bad, a show praised for its tidy plotting, was made up as the writers went along. Your favourite show was made up as the writers went along. Nobody films a pilot already knowing exactly how the next several years of story will go.

Heroes was a show that got absolutely hosed by the writer's strike, among other things.

Just about every show that was airing at that time got messed up by the strike. TSCC, Battlestar, Heroes.

He plays for the dreamers that forgot how to dream, and the lovers that forgot how to love.

I liked where season one was going with Sylar at first - the reason that he was such a good clockmaker, and the reason he could steal powers, was because his own power was to see how everything fit together. The reason he ripped open peoples heads was to see how their brain was wired differently so that he could apply that to himself. I particularly liked the moment where he finally catches Claire and she's just like "Please don't eat my brain.." "Eat your brain? Claire, that's disgusting..."

Yeah, but some shows do it better than others. All shows are made up, but if they're good you believe the lies. If they're bad, well, you get Heroes season 2.

Ugly Betty, too. Vanessa Williams deserved better.

What is storytelling but the art of creating and maintaining believable lies?

And in the end, isn't that the real truth?

The answer... is no.
