This review is from: Lost - The Complete First Season (DVD)
Rumor is that this DVD collection will include amazing extra's.
"Lost" is intelligently written and extremely entertaining.
I can't remember the last time I looked so forward to watching T.V.
"Lost" is truly refreshing and thought provoking. It is exactly what we needed after the excessive amount of brainless fluff that has been forced down our throats at every angle. (ie: reality television)
So as we wait for the release of the "Lost" DVD, here are a few tidbits that you may or may not know about:
The "Lost" set was once a crime scene: Some crew members decided not to work on "Lost" because of the location of the set; inside a former Xerox warehouse that is the site of the worst mass murder in the history of the state of Hawaii. The building had been left vacant since November 2, 1999 when a Xerox employee shot and killed 6 of his coworkers. The building had to be blessed before the first day of work on the set of "Lost".
Matthew Fox was not supposed to play the role of "Jack" and Jack was not supposed to live past the pilot episode. Fox originally read for another character. He was stopped in the middle of his audition and was asked to read for the role of "Jack" instead. Originally, they had asked Michael Keaton to play the role of "Jack" but he turned them down.
Emile (Claire) read for the role of Shannon.
The character "Charlie" was supposed to be a much older man.
Dom (Charlie) originally read for the role of Sawyer.
Hurley was the first to be hired.
Sayid is married to Barbara Hershey.
Charlie & Kate are a real life couple.
Kate was hired only after she pulled her hair back.
During a break in shooting, 2 "Lost" stars were in the LA airport. They said that there were several people that came up to them, not for autographs... but to ask what flight they were going to be on. They wanted to make sure that they were not going to be on the same flight.
The guy who plays the role of "Ethan" is the cousin of Tom Cruise.
The character of Locke was named after the philosopher, John Locke.
