Opinion

It’s kind of intriguing how Oxygen went from a women lifestyle channel to a crime channel — I wonder what was the pivotal moment? The new logo does have a certain creepiness to it, like, there is something clearly wrong with it (not visually but, like, in the head). This is actually a compliment as I think the logo does manage to capture the police-line-do-not-cross aesthetic or also a masking-tape-to-label-evidence aesthetic, neither of which is very expected. The applications in the subway takeover have a somewhat cliché-ish mystery novel cover vibe that’s good and out of the norm for a TV channel but still comfortable within that genre if you found yourself in that aisle of the bookstore. I question the “Crime all the Time” tagline… I’m no pacifist, but in politically-charged climates like today, that’s not the most positive of rallying cries. Unlike Destination America — another channel that pivoted into a weird subject but kept its name — “oxygen” has a very dark-and-stormy connotation as it relates to crime, where the victim is running or has run out of air. Dark stuff, ladies.

Thanks to Ty Blits for the tip.
