Trivia

The character of Libby was originally written to be in her 40s or 50s with Jennifer Jason Leigh in mind to play the part. Instead, the role went to the much younger Cynthia Watros who did not believe she stood a chance of gaining the part. When she did, she immediately moved to Hawaii with her twin daughters.

Solid episode, redundant flashback
28 August 2008 | by ametaphysicalsharkSee all my reviews

"Everybody Hates Hugo" features one of the more redundant and unnecessary flashbacks on "Lost" and rather silly handling of Hurley's character script-wise towards the end of the episode, but it's not a bad episode at all overall, as we meet the tailies properly for the first time, including Rose's husband Bernard, and we get to see more of the hatch. The flashbacks, while near completely unnecessary, were humorous enough to sustain interest and also served the purpose of being the first example of romance for Hurley, something that would play into season two later on.

The cast are all good here, and there's a solid guest turn from DJ Qualls as well. The episode is directed very well by Alan Taylor, whose work on "Mad Men" and "The Sopranos" attracted a lot of attention recently. He captures the emotional angle of the episode quite well.

"Everybody Hates Hugo" is a more or less inconsequential episode which I hated at the time of the broadcast (let's face it, you wait a whole week expecting "Lost" to do more than 'entertaining and watchable', so even the solid but unspectacular episodes disappoint on first viewing). Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz would go on to do much better later on, but this, like their first effort "Born to Run", isn't hard to sit through.

7/10
