Re: The Tommy Merlyn Thread
Show runners have always had a game plan. This isn't a "new" thing lol. I'd say LOST was the case of a show that ran on a bit too long probably thus forcing them to expand their mythology or spread their mythology out more than originally expected which resulted in it being muddled. Yet also every series deals with seasons as they come and figure out what to do with that season as sell as the pacing of the series as a whole (talking from the pov of a virtual series show runner for four years). So it's kinda a bit of both. Every show has a show bible, and working IN the industry, I've actually seen a couple. It's CRUCIAL to the pitch.
