The pilot episode of Fringe didn't really impress me ... but neither did it do anything to repel me. I guess I'll DVR a few more episodes before I make up my mind.
I did like bits and pieces of the dialogue, and the twist near the end was pretty good, along with hints of whatever the "Pattern" is. However, I also found the romance to be too artificial and those big, bold name identifiers when the scene changes took place really threw me out of the story.
So, I'll give Fringe another shot or two, but if it doesn't pick up by then, I'm moving on to greener pastures.
P.S. Oh, and I gave this episode an "average" rating.
