It’s interesting to note that Abrams launched three different series rooted around mystery MacGuffins —Alias, Lost, and Fringe — and then eventually (or quickly) departed all three, leaving collaborators behind to tease out the answers with varying degrees of success. (OnAlias, they failed; on Lost, they succeeded until they failed; on Fringe, they completely changed course and succeeded, then completely changed course and failed.) For Abrams, the destination is never as interesting as the journey, and the answer is never as interesting as the question. This is why his movies are so exciting, and also why his endings aren’t very good.
My issues with J.J. in a nutshell. He’s an awful showrunner in that he gets distracted by the next big shiny object/project coming his way and leaves his seconds in command to figure out what his plan was.
The Museum of the Moving Image said on Tuesday that it will create a gallery devoted to the work of Henson, the puppeteer and artist who died in 1990, following the donation of nearly 400 puppets, costumes and other props and objects from Henson’s family.
The Museum of the Moving Image, in Astoria, Queens, which previously featured the exhibition “Jim Henson’s Fantastic World,” said in a news release that its 2,200-square-foot gallery for Henson’s work was expected to open in winter 2014-2015.
Among the works donated to the museum by the Henson family are artifacts from film and TV projects like “The Muppet Show,” “Sesame Street,” “Fraggle Rock” and “The Dark Crystal,” and about 200 puppets including Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Elmo, Ernie, Bert, Count von Count, Gobo Fraggle, the Swedish Chef, and Statler and Waldorf.
Ooh, the Fantastic World exhibit was amazing. This sounds phenomenal.
