Damon Lindelof to LOST fans on the finale: “PLEASE DON’T SPOIL YOURSELF”

I listened to TheODI’s podcast / interview with Damon Lindelof just now, and that monologue in the last minute from Damon was absolutely amazing, and every LOST fan should listen to it! I’m going to transcribe it, because that’s how much I loved it. It will have a lot less impact without Damon saying it, but, /shrug

All I will say is, especially to people who gravitate towards spoilers, you might really really really be tempted to feel you deserve to know what the ending of the show is before you watch it on May 23. And the reason that you’re probably feeling that way is, because you DON’T trust us. Because, you feel like, “I need to protect myself in case i’m disappointed”. But i will say, that, YOU, have an opportunity that no one else is going to have after May 23 once DVDs come out and it’s out there in the world, which is, to honestly and actually be part of the final episode of the show, as its broadcast in many places around the world, simultaneously, so you’ll probably be watching the show, relatively the same time as another 20 million people, and I ask you as a favour to the show, not because you owe it, PLEASE DON’T SPOIL YOURSELF. Let yourself experience the ending of the show without knowing what’s going to happen. Please.

AMEN to that.

    Since when have I deliberately looked for spoilers? -_- I have been spoilt inadvertently this season through Twitter, but I’m hoping that my media blackout today will let me experience the finale without ANY outside influences >.<
