    Javier Grillo-Marxuach: The Interview

    Writer/Producer Javier Grillo-Marxuach (Lost, The Dark Crystal: Resistance, The Middleman) talks about that Star Wars moment when he knew he wanted to write, how his first gig as an NBC Development Executive turned into his first job on Seaquest DSV, and how being at his lowest point in his career opened up the doors to land him in a Think Tank for a strange new J.J. Abrams and Damon Lindelof ABC show that would eventually be called Lost. Then, he'll discuss the classic 1981 film Time Bandits by Terry Gilliam, and why he chose it for the feature-length audio commentary All-Star treatment.

Wonderful

Just listened to the episode with the commentary track for Mr. Mike Leigh’s currently-OOP (in the US, at least), masterpiece, ‘Career Girls’ - subscribed on the spot. Will be listening to the ‘Blow-Up’ episode next, and then the ‘Dazed’ one when it drops a few weeks from now.
