I have a feeling this might be an unpopular view, but I quite like the 2002 Five logo. It popped up on screen the other day and looked quite modern and crisp. I'm a bit of a sucker for that sans-serif, typographic, Helvetica Designers Republic aesthetic, even though the idents were dull. At least it wasn't trying to look like a poor man's Channel 4 (although that may have been more fitting).
That might be my last post on this forum... once again, cheers folks.
