movie_ZombieLand_stillHollywood loves Tallahassee,FL. Or at least making vague stereotyped references to it. Tallahassee is where LOST’s Sawyer picked up an STD. Tallahassee is where LOST’s Kate was attempting to run from the law to. “The Man from Tallahassee” is the title of the thirteenth episode of LOST.

Come to think of it, my only experience with Tallahassee being mentioned is only ever in LOST episodes. Sure, there is the HBO movie, Recount, but that was about events taking place in Tallahassee. So maybe it’s J.J. Abrams that is obsessed with Tallahassee. (Don’t even get me started on the fact that all the last names of the main characters in LOST are also streets in Tallahassee.)
