What Do You Think of Fringe's 3D Location Titles?

Flying over, under, by and through Fringe's three dimensional location titles has some fans cheering and others jeering. But the veracity of the latter has us wondering, is it just an exceptionally vocal minority of fans who dislike the 3D location motif, or do their protests represent a majority opinion?

What's your take on Fringe's embedded, reflective, 3D location titles?

Everything is a clue..including the 3d letters.

I found them great. I mean, they are building part of location. The location titles in X-Files were "file"alike, with typewriter style, and here the titles have something mysterious. I like the camera fly through the "o" in the Pilot, it was kinda funky. But the greatest use was in Bagdad: firstly you see the Word Bagdad under the helicopters, like a huge map. And then you see the word Bagdad from the ground, inside, mirrored. It was great idea, the whole location becomes more familiar through it.

Computer graphics have come a long way in the past decade, but the quality for 3D floating text in a moving background isn't quite there yet (at least on a TV budget). I think that the floating text would have been better saved for J.J.'s next big show.

did anyone notice that those titles look a lot like the opening credits from the movie "Panic Room"? It's just another font but the same style..
