But overall I was very disappointed in the last season wrapup. There were two main fallacies: Providing unnecessary and/or poor answers to transcendent questions (such as the episode showing the origin of the Man in Black), and also claiming to be "asking questions" that in all honesty are rather banal or not really that amazing to ask. I don't think just asking, "Gee, what happens when we die?" is something that deserves criticial acclaim, for example. It's a question a five-year-old would open with. I get the same feeling when reading atheist/Christan arguments that I would consider "level 1" entry into the debate.
I didn't really see the questions get explored in Prometheus. The questions asked were the very first step on a long progession of exploration, they were rough draft questions that you scribble on the back of a cocktail napkin while out at happy hour, for later follow-up; and I just really didn't see any movement on them in this particular film.
I don't really know what type Lindelof is, but he seems like all Se/Ne (ask questions!) and for some reason that seems to substitute for actual exploration of the question.
