The closest some of us have ever gotten to the island of Hawaii and paradise living has been while drinking coconut rum and watching the last five seasons of ABC’s hit show Lost.
Wait…is that just me?
Either way, it is now time to say goodbye to the show that has a cult following similar to a Jonas Brothers tour.
Nearly 10,000 fans gathered into Waikiki beach to watch the two-hour premiere of the show’s final season. OH MY 10,000 people! Were there even that many people at the final game of the World Series last year? (Fact: No, there weren’t).
Cast members Evangeline Lilly, Michael Emerson, Daniel Dae Kim, Naveen Andrews, Jorge Garcia, Harold Perrineau, Henry Ian Cusick, Nestor Carbonell, Terry O’Quinn and Jeff Fahey were on hand to sign autographs, take pictures and take their final victory lap of Lost fame.
“It’s such a sad thing to be leaving this family, the job, but at the same time, we’re all ready for a change,” said Lilly.
Not sure if I’d ever need a change from living in paradise and staring at Matthew Fox and Josh Holloway all day, but to each his own. Now, raise your umbrella rimmed tropical glasses and toast to the final season which starts airing nationwide on Tuesday.
