'Lost' - 'Everybody Loves Hugo' Recap

'Lost' - 'Everybody Loves Hugo'
(S06E12)
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.

Michelle Rodriguez Headed Back to 'Lost'

by Chris Harnick, posted Mar 4th 2010 5:00PM
Michelle Rodriguez is getting 'Lost' -- again.

According to the Ausiello Files, Rodriguez will reprise her role of Ana Lucia for at least one episode as the final season of 'Lost' comes to an end.

The news may come as a surprise to some, considering that Ana Lucia died during season 2. She made a brief appearance in season 5, but only during one of Hurley's dreams.

But by now, 'Lost' fans should know that, like a good soap, it ain't over until it's, well, over. Other deceased characters scheduled to return this season include Maggie Grace's Shannon, who, coincidentally, was shot and killed by Ana Lucia in season 2.

Harold Perrineau Stopping by 'CSI: NY' as Well as 'Lost' This Season

by Jason Hughes, posted Feb 22nd 2010 11:00AM
Harold PerrineauMichael is scheduled to return to one of the realities of 'Lost' this season, but that's not the only place we can expect to see Harold Perrineau this spring. According to Entertainment Weekly, Perrineau is schedule to guest star on an April episode of 'CSI: NY.' He'll be playing the role of a death row inmate who must fight for his life during a prison riot.

The part that gets interesting for fans of the crime procedural is that Sheldon Hawkes will be in the prison along with Perrineau's character. What he's doing there hasn't been revealed, but there's apparently a connection between his past and Perrineau. I thought it might have more to do with his recent financial troubles, but perhaps there are secrets in Hawkes' past that will make his recent troubles seem like child's play.

Harold Perrineau and Cynthia Watros to appear in Lost's last season - TCA Report

by Joel Keller, posted Jan 12th 2010 1:01PM
Lost: The Final SeasonDuring the fun session for Lost this morning, executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse announced that two favorite cast members will be seen on the show's last season. And since they announced this in front of a room full of 200 reporters, it's safe to talk about it here:

Cynthia Watros, who played Libby, and Harold Perrineau, who played Michael, will both be appearing on the show this season. How and why they will appear, of course, is a secret. Cuse and Lindelof even joked about it, with Cuse going "All your Libby questions will be answered," and Lindelof countering, "No, they won't."

More on the lively panel later.

Who is the cast member that doesn't want to come back to Lost? (SPOILERS)

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 22nd 2009 11:42AM
PerrineauThere's been plenty of talk the past week about a former cast member of Lost who might not be coming back to the island for the ABC show's last season. By process of elimination and a little detective work, some thought that the person who didn't want to come back to the show was Harold Perrineau, who played Michael. He left the show once, came back later, and then was killed off in a boat explosion. After that he didn't have many nice things to say about the producers or the show.

But you can forget about all that talk, because Perrineau says that he would love to come back to the show for the last season but he hasn't been asked yet. As for all that stuff about not liking his time on the show or holding a grudge against the producers, he says he loved his time on the show, loves the cast, and there are no hard feelings.

The Unusuals: The E.I.D. (series finale) - open thread

The Unusuals

Remember when The Unusuals premiered? At first it looked like one of those shows that didn't get gangbuster ratings or critical acclaim, but you sensed that it would be a show ABC would get behind and renew for a second season. Well, that renewal went to Castle. But a lot of people are really going to miss this show.

What did you think of the series finale?

Delving deeper into the Charlie Pace mystery

by Kona Gallagher, posted Jun 6th 2009 12:03PM
lost charlie pace

The Internet has been all atwitter since Dominic Monaghan, aka the dearly departed Charlie Pace on Lost, showed up in a new ABC promo. In it, Dominic/Charlie is playing Foosball with current and upcoming ABC stars, including Patrick Dempsey from Grey's Anatomy and Courteney Cox from the upcoming Cougar Town. Jason Hughes theorizes that this could very well mean that Monaghan is returning to Lost next season.

This of course, is not out of the realm of possibility: death, after all, rarely means goodbye on Lost. On the other hand, it's not unheard of for stars who have exited the island to find themselves on other ABC shows (see: Harold Perrineau on The Unusuals). So which is it? Well, that crafty cad Michael Ausiello thinks he has the answer. See what spoilers ABC execs shared with him after the jump.

The Unusuals: 42 - open thread

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 30th 2009 10:08AM
The UnusualsI watched the first ten minutes of this episode last night and that's it, so I'm not sure what the 42 in the episode title refers to. I know that it has something to do with weird happenings/coincidences that happen to Harold Perrineau's character. Can I also assume it's a reference to Douglas Adam's The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy?

Fox Mulder's apartment number was 42, if I remember correctly ...

Harold Perrineau: The TV Squad Interview

by Kona Gallagher, posted Apr 15th 2009 11:04AM
harold perrineau the unusuals
Harold Perrineau is worried. He's worried that viewers won't give his new show, The Unusuals, a chance. He has a valid concern: The Unusuals, which just premiered, is on Wednesday nights at 10, on ABC; otherwise known as the post-Lost timeslot (of doom).

ABC is showing faith in The Unusuals. After all, it's not stuck in the Friday night graveyard or anything. The post-Lost slot is tricky though; shows generally don't do well there. It could be that the minds of everybody who watches Lost are so blown, they can't even stick around for another hour of television. Whatever it is, the quirky cop show Life On Mars recently died a sad death there. Will this quirky cop show do better? Harold Perrineau certainly hopes so.

Warning: Spoilers ahead. We talk about plot points in the recently aired pilot, some spoilers for upcoming episodes, as well as the fate of Michael, Perrineau's character on Lost.

The Unusuals: Pilot (series premiere)

by Mike Moody, posted Apr 9th 2009 11:38AM
the unusuals pilot abc
(S01E01) ABC's quirky new crime procedural is not the brilliant blend of drama and absurd comedy the network might want it to be, but it does have a few good things going for it. First, there's the great cast. It's hard to pick a favorite among these talented TV vets, but series star Amber Tamblyn is genuine and beleiveable as Casey Shraeger, a detective working to weed out corruption in a kooky NYPD homicide unit, one of her first grown-up roles. Jeremy Renner, adding some Nathan Fillion-esque goofiness to his all-around good guy persona, is a good fit for Detective Jason Walsh, Tamblyn's possibly duplicitous partner.

I'm convinced that Lost's Harold Perrineau can do almost anything, even turn a one-note character like Detective Leo Banks, who's obsessed with the idea that he'll die at the age of 42, into something special. Perrineau didn't exactly get the best material here, but he and partner Adam Goldberg, playing a nervous depressive who is actually dying, managed to elevate their short scenes together.
