'Lost' - 'Everybody Loves Hugo' Recap

'Lost' - 'Everybody Loves Hugo'
You can certainly tell that we've turned the corner on this final season of 'Lost.' Suddenly, the alpha-verse and beta-verse seem to be on a collision course with one another, and I'm very intentionally using that expression. With Desmond on the loose in both universes now, things have gotten a lot more interesting, even if I'm still not 100% clear what either of his motivations are.

As expected, the beta-verse Hurley is every bit the financial success with Mr. Cluck's that the alpha-verse Hurley could never quite manage. What was alpha-Hurley's deep-rooted desire, if I'm going to continue that theory, that the beta-verse fulfilled? He said many times that he didn't want the millions he won in the lottery, but I think it was his never-ending plague of bad luck that he really wanted to get rid of. Trying to shed his winnings was just a means to his desired end.

Realities Collide as Desmond Saves Charlie on 'Lost' (VIDEO)

Desmond Saves Charlie on 'Lost'Is 'Lost' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC) not the most insane, mind-blowing show that ever existed? Flashing forwards, backwards and sideways to the alphaverse, betaverse, the Temple, Dharmaville, New Otherton -- sheesh!

On last night's craziness, Desmond (Henry Ian Cusick) and Charlie (Dominic Monaghan) find themselves (again) under water, with Desmond (again) given the chance to save Charlie's life. As Charlie raises his hand to the glass, Desmond flashes to a season 3 timeline, when Charlie was about to drown and pressed his palm to the glass to relay the 'Not Penny's Boat' message.

But that's not even the most shocking part: Desmond doesn't know who Penny is!? The love of his life??

Watch the video after the jump.

'Lost' - 'Happily Ever After' Recap

'Lost' - 'Happily Ever After'
Knowing this was a Desmond-centric episode, I expected us to take a major step forward in understanding the beta-verse, perhaps even experiencing it in a whole new way. Ever since the explosion at the hatch, Desmond seems to experience everything a little differently, and he's always there with his finger on the truth, even if he has no idea what that truth was.

Parallels between alpha- and beta- were running rampant throughout this episode. Fisher Stevens even returned in the beta-verse, to serve as Desmond's guide as he did once before, when Desmond was trapped in time. We got beta-appearances by Charlie, Daniel Faraday, Charles Widmore and even Eloise Hawking. Every encounter was a further step toward confusion and understanding.

The Dead Like Me movie finally gets a release date! - VIDEO

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Dec 10th 2008 2:01PM
Dead Like MeIt's almost been a year since we last gave you news about the straight-to-DVD Dead Like Me movie. Back then, it was rumored that the movie would be released during the summer of 2008, more precisely around Comic-Con time. Well, looking at all the snow outside my condo and at my DVD collection, it's clear that summer has gone by and that the rumor turned out to be false.

After months and months of waiting for the release and trying to find every tidbits of info about the movie (aka spoilers and trailer), our wait is almost over. In an official press release, MGM and FOX not only announce when the movie will finally be released but also that they are putting a collector's edition of the series on the market!

Lost: The Complete Fourth Season -- DVD review - VIDEO

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 9th 2008 2:06PM
Lost: The Complete Fourth Season DVD SetAh, Season Four. You were so good to us, even though you were slightly shorted by that pesky writers strike. Lost wasn't as impacted as a lot of other shows because the creators had already gotten the okay to do three shorter seasons before any of this happened. Sure they lost a little bit of time, but not enough to have really impacted the show.

And Season Four gave us such pivotal moments. The introduction of the freighties, including some really good and interesting characters. The return of Michael. The identities of the Oceanic Six. An in-depth examination of what happened to them after the island in more flash forwards. The man in the cabin. Ben moves the island. And the identity of the man in the casket. So much happened in fourteen short episodes, but still that's not enough. To fill out the set, we've got two full discs of extras.

Lost season four highlights

by Erin Martell, posted Jun 6th 2008 10:22AM
Michael EmersonWe've already discussed some of this season's letdowns, and now it's time for the good stuff. Even the pickiest Lost fan must acknowledge that season four was phenomenal. A lot of things could have gone wrong this season. The writers had to incorporate an entirely new timeline into the show, deal with strike-related delays, and ease another group of characters into a huge ensemble cast.

Instead of falling short of expectations, this season surpassed them. I probably could have devoted separate posts to each of the following highlights. As usual, please share your own praise for this season of Lost in the comments section. I didn't come close to covering everything that made this season incredible.

Lost: The freighties vs. the island dwellers

Jeremy Davies, Rebecca Mader, and Elizabeth Mitchell

"Welcome to the war." Ben Linus utters those words to John Locke in one of ABC's Lost promos, gun in hand. Since day one, Ben claimed that the freighter folks were going to kill everyone on the island. The show's three-hour finale is only a few weeks away. What do these last episodes of the season hold for the island residents? Can they hold their own against Widmore's team of scientists and thugs? Spoiler Warning: Some details from promos, interviews, and podcasts are mentioned.

Lost: Meet Kevin Johnson

Harold Perrineau, Henry Ian Cusick, and Naveen Andrews

(S04E08) We're going into a five-week Lost hiatus, and I'm extremely thankful that this wasn't the season finale. "Meet Kevin Johnson" wasn't a bad episode, but I couldn't have waited until 2009 for a follow-up. This episode did have its moments. We learned more about the island's connection to its inhabitants, Michael's time on the mainland, and there was (at least) one death. That should keep us busy for the next month or so, right?

(S04E02) Watching "Confirmed Dead" was like watching my dream episode of Lost. People asked direct questions for once, some of which were answered within the hour! This episode was all about the Freighties--their lives back on the mainland, their connections to Oceanic 815, and, to borrow a phrase, their "primary objective."

Dead Like Me movie trailer - VIDEO

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Dec 13th 2007 1:41PM
Dead Like MeEven if the Dead Like Me straight-to-DVD movie will only be released next summer, the first trailer already made its way to the world wide web. The quality of the trailer is not the great but it does give a good glimpse at what's in store for the reapers and introduces Sarah Wynter as Daisie and Henry Ian Cusick as Cameron Kane, the new head reaper.

Even if you haven't read the movie spoilers and news released over the summer, you will still grasp most of what is shown in the trailer even if George's narration doesn't give a lot hints.

Dead Like Me movie update

Dead Like MeOver the summer, I kept you in the loop as to the latest spoilers and info about the direct-to-DVD Dead Like Me movie. Since I last gave you news about the movie about three months ago and because the DLM posts here at TV Squad still get a good number hits, I thought it was time I check up on the movie status and see if I could get more dish. Thanks to the movie's IMDb page (it's been up for a while now but I had given up on it since usually IMDb creates pages before or during shooting and it hadn't done that for the DLM movie) I can bring you some news.

That is old news for TV Squad readers. But what is new is that Cohen gave the names of the actors set to replace both actors.

Lost -- Desmond's little ditty explained - VIDEO

by Martin Conaghan, posted Apr 20th 2007 4:21PM
Is Desmond a Celtic fan?If you caught the recent episode of Lost ('Catch-22'), you may have already started scouring the web in search of clues regarding the little ditty Desmond sang during a flashback, while supping down copious amounts of wine.

The key to the song lies in Desmond's nationality. In case you hadn't noticed, he's Scottish (by the sounds of his accent, probably from Glasgow, possibly Paisley).

Henry Ian Cusick, the actor who portrays Desmond, isn't actually Scottish himself -- he was born in Trujillo, Peru. His father is Scottish, but he spent most of his early life in Trinidad and Tobago and moved to Scotland when he was 15.
