... I really could have done without watching a "Star Trek" promo inflict itself onto the "Lost" title sequence. The forthcoming "Star Trek" movie is directed by "Lost" producer J.J. Abrams, and obviously there is a lot of potential audience overlap, and the promo was kind of cool, and product placement and integration is anything but shocking these days.
BUT STILL: The "Lost" logo has always been kind of sacred to me, and I hated to see it toyed with. The simplicity of the black-and-white sequence is genius, as the word "Lost" moves toward us through the void while the freaky noise gets louder. A reader once pointed out to me that the graphic in motion looks like the fortune emerging from one of those magic 8 ball toys. I love that idea, along with the other, eerier things the sequence evokes.
Again, the episode, "The Variable," was fun and revelatory, though not as tight as "The Constant." Daniel Faraday is a great character, and Jeremy Davies has really been an asset to the series. But I had to get over my annoyance in order to enjoy the hour.
Did you mind watching the "Lost" logo get co-opted?
