Get “Lost” in Hawaii: Executive Producer Reveals the Island’s Secrets
If you’re like me, and have spent the better part of your week analyzing the origin stories introduced this week’s episode of Lost, “Across the Sea,” and are distractedly pondering the meaning behind smoke monsters, black and white stones, Adam and Eve, and a mysteriously bright light that should never be extinguished, then here’s a little something to bring you back to reality. But not that far back, just a smidge.
My colleague Mary Anne Potts, the editor of the National Geographic Adventure Blog, scored an interview with executive producer Jean Higgins and found out some of the secrets of the show. In their conversation, Higgins not only identifies some of the Hawaiian locales where Lost is filmed (did you know that the team has originally planned to film the show in Australia?), but talks about stunts, surf, and a unique device called ladderpod (you know you’re dying to know what that is. Hint: It’s not related to the hatch, but probably would have come in handy).
You can read the full interview here. What is going to be your armchair travel television show of choice after, gasp, Lost ends? I’m trying to imagine life without it.
