After starring in the sitcom “Doogie Howser M.D.” , we did not see much of Neil Patrick Harris. On the program Harris portrayed the prodigy, Doogie Howser for 4 seasons.

To say that I am excited that the next season of “Lost” is coming back is definitely an understatement. This show has got me hooked. Not only is the acting great, but the writing is so imaginative and detailed that you cannot help but watch.
With the final season ,we will see some old characters come back. Does that mean that the plan work and Juliet setting off the hydrogen bomb, Jughead, has made after thing right and that flight never crashes on the island? Not necessarily. With the way that “Lost” travel through time we will not know when and where in time these characters will appear.
We all have our little hopes and dream of what would happen. I am wishing for a happy ending, but “Lost”, though built in imagination, doesn’t deal in happy endings. I cannot wait until Tuesday night.
