Re: Fringe: "Pilot" 9/9 - Grading & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Finally finished the pilot.
A big meh for me. It's just...I don't know...we live in a Post X-Files world now...and I couldn't stop thinking about X-Files...ok. That's a lie.

I stopped thinking about the X-Files and I started thinking about the Middleman...and how it's taking the cliches of these particular genre (the supernatural procedural) and turning them on their head. So, it's hard for me to watch Fringe as it takes it so RIDICULOUSLY seriously and not sorta laugh.

I MAY watch another one...but probably not.

I'll still with the Middleman...smarter, funnier, bigger heart, and hopefully not canceled.
