The consensus is that last night's episode of "Lost" was excellent and we agree that the focus on Henry Ian Cusick's Desmond Hume was very compelling. The "SouthLAnd" season finale was very very good, we hope that TNT makes the right decision and brings the show back - be sure to check out yesterday's interview with series star Ben McKenzie.
