Ron always says that we should throw back the curtain and invite people in. If they are a fan they want to know and to feel part of the process.
I love it. I mean I guess in theory I know they have to map out the whole season in the writer’s room. But your BSG writer’s room answer is so interesting. Since I happen to be rewatching BSG it’s interesting to know that from day 1 of season 2 they knew that they were going to have to get the arrow, have a military coup, fix the military coup, have the Pegasus show up, etc. etc. So while I know it in my head it always seems like someone is thinking this up as they go along (like I am still convinced they did with Lost).
