Getting to speak with Damon Lindelof, the co-creator of Lost and screenwriter of Prometheus, was undoubtably an On The Verge highlight. In this teaser from our show last Thursday, Lindelof tells our own Joshua Topolsky about director Ridley Scott's strong hand in the creative process during the making of Prometheus — it turns out that when you're working with a director like Scott, screenwriting can be somewhat comparable to Mad Libs, with Lindelof filling in the blanks around Scott's vision.

The full episode will be available Monday, including the full interview with Lindelof, Paul Miller's encounter with Masi Oka (of Heroes and Hawaii Five-0), and a performance by Infinity Shred — but until then, feast your eyes and ears on the clip below.
