  • Hines was one of the BEST parts of Lie to Me…hopefully he will have a more fulfilling ending than he got on Lie To Me….oh wait…we never GOT an ending for Lie To Me….

    • We never get an ending to most Fox shows. Terra Nova, Human Target, Lie To Me… I hate Fox. :-(

    • My husband and I really liked Lie to me. It needs to be brought back and retried.

  • Human Target and Chicago Code had endings of sorts; season as opposed to series; but at least we have that glorious final image of Guerrero.

  • My admiration for Hines goes back to The Middleman. Would love to see him as a recurring character who doesn’t get killed off.

  • We need more Oded Fehr as Eyal Lavine in Covert Affairs, now there is real chemistry between him and Anne.

    • Agreed, Idypayne, anyone who follows Covert Affairs knows that there is an atmosphere electric between Annie and Eyal. I saw it the very first time they teamed up together. Omg, the sparks are practically flying between those two! More Annie and Eyal, pleeeeaase!
