Fringe......

Post  Aggie Transplant on Thu Sep 25, 2008 9:44 am

Did anyone else watch this? I guess I missed the inaugural episode, but I watched the second episode a few nights ago out of curiosity. Strange show, and not that bad, but not that great either. I wouldn't go out of my way to watch it again.

It bugged me for a while that I knew I recognized the older scientist on the show, but couldn't figure out from where. I finally looked it up, and he was the wacko king that favored the dead son and tried to kill his live son in a funeral pyre in Return of the King.

Anyway, back to the show. They seem to be trying too hard to invoke the mystique from Lost and the X-Files, and in my mind, failed.

I actually like the show. Caught the 2 hour premier. Definitely in the X files realm (which I loved). You might want to check out the network website to see if you can watch the premier off of the web. It will bring things into focus more.

...which isn't saying much, IMO. X-Files was very hit-and-miss for me.

I'm still giving Fringe some time. It's not great, IMO, but it can be entertaining to watch - but I'm also not scheduling around its time slot (I watch it later on Hulu usually). Anyway, I agree it's definitely trying to be like the X-Files, but it's not at that level.

As for the X-Files, I loved its first four or so seasons. But after the movie, the main storyline became incredibly esoteric and I became lost. I stopped watching it a little after that. But I thought some of the stand-alone episodes were great. All in all, I liked it a lot.

I watched a little bit of Fringe and just lost interest quickly.

I've watched most of the episodes so far. Not too bad, but no XFiles.

When I watched it I felt like I was watching a show where Dawson's Creek had a lab explode and they are on the Fringe of Pacey's coat tails...
