Meanwhile, his daughter is at home in London, and his wife Elena (Joanna Froggatt) and young son are in Paris, leaving the family separated. In order to find one another, they’ll sacrifice everything. The five episode series will see Fox' return to the small screens after more than ten years.

    1. We do love them apocalyptic and we really do need to ditch the oil! I've never understood why we don't use solar power more for powering the houses.

  2. I haven't seen Matthew Fox in probably a decade! When was the series finales of Lost? Either way, I'm avoiding apocalyptical shows at the moment.

  3. I welcome Matthew Fox back to the small screen. I always liked him, even if LOST got a little lost there after the first few seasons. He was so cute on Party of 5. Unlike Jax, this is one that I'll be watching for.

    1. I think he got really old and is not so cute anymore, sadly, but we all get ugly with years LOL or at least most of us.
