LOST Creators Ripping Off Battlestar’s Final Season Promo?
I am a HUGE LOST fan, but all the hype leading up to the last season has officially broken my spirit. They’ve now started stealing ideas from my beloved BSG.
“The LOST Supper” photo (one of the many ads leading up to LOST’s final season), as they are calling it, is unfortunately a poor man’s rip off of the promo for BSG’s 4th season. Don’t get me wrong, the whole “Let’s riff on Da Vinci’s Last Supper” tactic has been used by many a pop culture phenomenon before (The Sopranos and House have both done versions), but to attempt another one so similar to BSG’s, which also has the intent of giving brief character spoilers for a final season, so soon?
I’m hoping the LOST creators and writers are BSG fans, and that this is more of an “homage” than a rip-off…
Tsk, Tsk Abrams, Cuse and Lindelof. Shame on you. Don’t attempt to copy what has already been done so well, and so recently. Sigh.
Check out the two photos below.
