Finally, a mainstream publication has made an internet video monetizing our pain.

The gist:  J. J. Abrams loves the idea of a mystery box, where he gives everybody no clue WTF is going on so everyone will become obsessed with it.  He claims Empire Strikes Back gave him the idea.

The problem:  Star Wars isn’t a fucking mystery, and you can tell us some things.  He omits some things that would give the events more emotional weight because he’d rather evoke obsession than make the best quality thing.

It’s all about the twist/shock/surprise. Methinks he is getting his ideas from a certain emmy winning show. *SIGH*
