It Could Be Just A Coincidence, Right?

Since I am a fan of both Band of Brothers and Lost, I added both of them to my Flair application on Facebook.

When I did so, I noticed a striking similarity in the graphic design of the cover artwork for the two series:


I’m pretty sure that someone is copying off of someone else. And since Band of Brothers came out in 2001, and Lost came out in 2004, I think I know who is to blame…

That's pretty amazing, and as a Lost fan, somewhat disconcerting.

I wonder if Lost has to keep editing their cover art when they fire actors?

I am appalled. How dare a modern day soap opera that represents approximately zero percent of reality piggy back on the glory of the 101st Airborne division, Easy company. This an abomination that causes desolation.

John,

Ya, I was bummed too. I've never been convinced that the Lost writers did a lot of planning ahead when it comes to plot-development, but you'd think they could at least come up with an original cover design.

Mrs. D,

Ha, I'm sure they would have to, but fortunately, this picture is just from Season One (I wasn't clear about that in my post).

I bet a lot of the season covers aren't "current" though, with the rate that characters get killed/actors get busted for DWIs.

Justin,

LOL! As in, I literally laughed out loud when I read what you wrote.

I'm a fan of this particular modern day soap opera, but hear hear, I agree with you.
