LOST Connections

I know that posts would get pretty boring and repetitive if I listed every old episode of a television show where I saw a LOSTie as a guest star, but I think this one is worth mentioning.

This weekend, I happened to catch Frequency on television. This Dennis Quaid / Jim Caviezel sci-fi movie came out in 2000, and although I didn't start at the beginning, I found it enjoyable. At any rate, the lovely Elizabeth Mitchell co-starred (as a dark-haired nurse / wife of Dennis Quaid's character). For those who haven't seen it, and might care to, I won't spoil the plot, but let's just say Elizabeth's character has scenes with a character called... Jack Shepard!

LOST Stars in Random Roles

I've seen several former LOSTies appearing as guest stars in other programs. I try not to have expectations, because it eases up on the potential disappointment. Last night, I saw Henry Ian Cusick on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" and despite having NO expectations, I was a bit disappointed.

Thankfully, it was not in the acting; Ian performed brilliantly. The storyline was frighteningly predictable (as many L&O episodes can be) and I figured the plot twist within the first five minutes after the credits. Additionally, I would have liked a bit of a LOST shoutout (as Jorge Garcia's character did during his appearance in "How I Met Your Mother" recently). I guess not all television writers understand the LOST fan's zeal.
