As for Lindelof don't know him beyond Prometheus, which I did generally like. The only big issues about that film was its somewhat convuluted handling of its central mysteries...
Did you really think that the behaviour of the characters made complete sense and that they behaved like people with distinct personalities the whole time? You thought the plot contrivances were within the bounds of suspension of disbelief? And I'm not talking aliens or black goo or anything...I'm talking things like being a premiere scientist and getting onto a spaceship and going into hibernation and travelling light years away because...well, we'll tell you when we get there.
