"Have a cluckity-cluck-cluck-day, Hugo."
1 December 2010 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Everybondy Hates Hugo (an obvious pun on a famous sitcom) comes at just the right time in the outline for Lost's second year: it's a confident mixture of comedy, adventure, mystery and the right amount of weirdness that makes Lost the program it is. Plus, it's all about Hurley, which is always a good thing.

Poor Hugo is involved first-hand in the ongoing events when he's asked to take care of the food inventory inside the Swan station (the hatch's proper name, as established in the previous episode). Despite help from Rose (L. Scott Caldwell), he doesn't think he's up to the task, especially after a weird dream containing the message "Everything is going to change." While he struggles with these problems, Jin, Michael and Sawyer keep dealing with the "Others", who are revealed to be the last remaining survivors from the tail section of Oceanic 815: Ana Lucia, the big and menacing Mr. Eko (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, now part of the regular cast like Michelle Rodriguez), Rose's long lost husband Bernard (Sam Anderson, best known for playing less sympathetic roles on ER and Angel), and Libby Smith (Cynthia Watros).

Flashback-wise, the story revolves around Hurley's lottery win and his decision to keep it a secret, partly because of his superstition and partly because he doesn't want anything to change. He quits his job and mentions this to a friend, who promises everything will stay the same. Needless to say, it doesn't...

Having made their debut with the slightly less compelling Born to Run, writing duo Edward Kitsis-Adam Horowitz have a much more assured touch this time, effortlessly exploiting Hurley's comic relief function to make it fit inside the big picture. To do so, they openly acknowledge the show's debt to Twin Peaks with a delightfully twisted dream sequence (with Daniel Dae Kim finally allowed to speak English) and a main plot that really allows Jorge Garcia to make his part a solid element in the main ensemble. Other plot strands are equally well handled, with some fun banter between Sawyer and Ana Lucia (nice M*A*S*H joke) and a fan-pleasing nod to the sexual tension between Jack and Kate. Four words: Evangeline Lilly, shower, towel.
