Emmy winner Michael Emerson (aka Ben Linus) lived up to his billing on this week's Parenthood as "The Amazing Andy," an insect expert with Asperger's Syndrome who provided the entertainment for Max's birthday party. "He's the weirdest person I've ever met," Kristina (Monica Potter), declared before realizing he shared her son's diagnosis. Emerson ultimately made his character's quirks endearing; with any luck, we won't have to wait until next year's b-day bash before we see The Amazing Andy again.
In the meantime, Losties can get their Dharma fix from Jeremy Davies on Justified, Jorge Garcia on Mr. Sunshine, Daniel Dae Kim on Hawaii Five-0, Elizabeth Mitchell on V and an upcoming SVU, Rebecca Mader on No Ordinary Family and Alan Dale on this week's Californication. (Not to mention Ian Somerhalder on The Vampire Diaries.) Now will someone please give Terry O'Quinn a job worthy of his talent? He deserves better than the recent Lifetime movie Taken from Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story. Whatever happened to that NBC pilot J.J. Abrams was producing for costars O'Quinn and Emerson? Hope it hasn't gotten Lost in the shuffle.
Are you psyched to see so many Lost vets back on TV?
