I was hoping to make this forum a lot sooner, but things got in the way of that.

Anyway, a while back, I saw that Watership Down was mentioned in the show Lost, actually here is a clip of it.

I also found out that there is an actual connection between the two for it seems the show's direction was actually influenced by the book.
Here are a few web pages below.

Ohh, it seems you have indeed noticed this for it is in High lonely Hills,
I'll just put the link below.

Thought this apparent connection was intriguing.

I'm pretty sure Darkling made a topic about this already, but I can't seem to find it...

Anyway, it is an interesting topic.

Inspiration comes from many parts and part of this series has toquess of Watership Down. I do not know Lost, but there are some character similarity to any of the rabbits ?, as Hazel or Hawckbit?
That would be great!!!'

I love Watership Down!
 
Everything is fine =) (?)

That's an interesting find Vesper.  I never watched Lost, but I guess this is another example of how WD had a large impact on other works.
