And I like Bond!

There's nothing wholly original in this world - even the much-heralded Lost is an amalgam of a number of other shows, as was The X Files, the rebooted Galactica and a slew of other recent 'classic' shows. I'm not saying everything Abrams and co touch turns to gold (witness the witless and hopelessly imitative Fringe, which if there's any justice at all will get canned in a few months), but as far as I'm concerned, Abrams gets a free pass purely based on Alias, which is as close to unimpeachable as anything I've ever seen...
I can live with that.
