As promised in our last post, the “Hawaii In Vermont” #H50 Podcast has indeed managed to snag a nice little interview with talented Hawaiian Blogger,writer, and teacher  and now reporter, WendieJoy Burbridge!

Wendie, as our listeners know, is a great friend of the show, and writes the “Five-0 Redux” Blog. Hers is one of the few blog reviews of the show with a distinctly Hawaiian point of view, since she lives and works on the island of Oahu!

Today, one day before the Network TV Premiere of the 2nd season of  Hawaii Five-0, Wendie gave us a bit of her Sunday. She told us that the excitement of last week’s 2nd season World Premiere Red Carpet event at Sunset On The Beach keeps on coming and she hasn’t even had time to process it all.

Even this weekend, when we caught up with her she was driving to meet some Five-0 fans who came a long way to celebrate the network premiere tomorrow night and who she was going to Sunday brunch with in Waikiki.

So even though we were unable to Skype with her, we were able to get some audio through an iPhone and I felt it was decent enough to share with our fans!

Our podcast mainly covers her experience being on the Red Carpet for the World Premiere and representing the “Honolulu Star Advertiser” as a reporter there.

Wendie discusses her schedule for that day, how she prepared for her reporting gig and who her favorite interviews were with. She also tells us how she managed to interview stars like Alex O’loughlin and not faint!

In addition, we get a quick lowdown on what’s in store for the rest of us when we finally get to see the 1st episode of the new season, Monday, September 19th and how amazing it will be. Wendie’s husband, Chief, also gives us his perspective as a spectator on the beach that night!

So sit back and relax as we offer up this little appetizer as a precursor to tomorrow night’s premiere episode of ‘Hawaii Five-0’ entitled “Ha’i’ole.”

Make sure to stay tuned here and our facebook.com/alohavermont page for details about when our initial reaction podcast will be posted soon after the 1st episode of season 2 premieres!

Aloha!

No it’s not one of Steve McGarrett’s sappy songs, he loves so much….it’s a mini “Lost” Reunion!  Thanks to @Officer808 and his Hawaii 50Undercover.com blog for the heads up!!

Word came midday today, from CBS and Michael Ausiello of TVLine. com and who originally broke the story,  that Emmy-Award Winning “Lost” actor, Terry O’Quinn, who played the iconic ‘John Locke’ for 6 seasons on ABC will be joining the cast of “Hawaii Five-0” for an important recurring role as a former Navy SEAL commander who trained McGarrett and who also served with Steve’s dad in the Vietnam War. He will be holding the key to some of the mysteries (again!) to unlocking Steve’s Dad’s past.

As @Officer808 in his 50Undercover.com blog says in his article today about it, “Losties will rejoice upon hearing the news”  So we will!

Here are some other articles around the net that have additional information about this exciting news:

Finally, I wouldn’t be a real “Lostie” unless I ended by saying, “He had to go baaaaack, Kate!”  Sorry.
