I've interfaced with a lot of other creators of serialized shows, and I've really been blown away by the fact that they create a big spectacle, at the beginning, in the pilot, and they don't ultimately know where they're going. That's terrifying to me, and creatively disingenuous.
Before I even put pen to paper, in any sense, I'm like, "What's the coolest MacGuffin you can come up with? What are the last frames of this series?" The secret that's behind this entire thing is to be as evocative, original, thought-provoking and timely.
I have a great amount of respect for the audience. They know narrative construct. They know all the tropes.
