Bad news for "Lost" fans

Just came across something today that made me totally furious, and I expect all my fellow "Lost"-ies to feel likewise.
You know that super-annoying countdown clock for "V" that was positioned in the bottom corner of your screen all through this week's episode? Well, ABC has apparently listened to viewer complaints, and is doing something about it. Good news, right?
Well, not really. Apparently, they're going to superimpose the "V" logo under THE ENTIRE SCREEN! What? According to ABC, the effect will be "subtle, like subliminal advertising." Hmm. I seriously doubt it. A giant V? Well, anyway, you can read the entire press release by clicking here.

I see through the lies.

That's ridiculous. V already rode the coattails of Lost to pull some good return ratings. Here's an idea, instead of pushing V logos all over the Lost screen why don't they just show commercials for V during Lost. Wait, they do that already too? Maybe EVERY commercial should be for V. Bleh, if I want to watch V, I'll order the original on Netflix. Here mousey, mousey, mousey.

Milcz -- did you click on the link in my story? Because that would probably explain a lot.
