Yes, because all the great writers we know these days were never unknown. They were born with the stats greatbigasswriter tattoed on their heads.

FFS, not a word on paper yet, and some people are already asuming it's gonna suck because of two writers we've never heard about. Has it occured to anyone that perhaps this is the result of two months of heavy back and forth pitching of ideas, to which Abrams and co said 'holy shit, you guys have some amazing talent that we need to exploit?'.

Just because we haven't heard of them before, doesn't mean they're bad.....
People have to have something to bitch about for the next three years. They don't have experience people bitch, they have experience people bitch about what they've already been involved with.

I'm all for giving new people a chance. Just wish TPTB would've picked me.
