It's what you don't say

I loved Alias, Lost, Felicity, the new Star Trek and a myriad of other projects that JJ Abrams has been involved in.  In fact some of those works I love the more I think of them.  I thought the ending to LOST was beautiful and he had me crying 5 minutes into Star Trek.  Star Trek is not really known for it's tearjearker moments but there I was wiping tears and swallowing stoically in the movie theater. I love his hyperactive nature and geeky glasses and I really, really, really love his passionate creativity.  Check out his TED talk, a lovely tribute to his grandfather and the power of mystery.

TED Talks J.J. Abrams traces his love for the unseen mystery –- a passion that’s evident in his films and TV shows, including Cloverfield, Lost and Alias -- back to its magical beginnings.
