I like Fringe
, but it took me a while to really warm up to it. The show has done a very good job of presenting far-out scientific mysteries (teleportation and parallel universes, for example). Then again, unlike The X-Files
seems to avoid stories that involve spirits or occult phenomena. Not sure why that is.
The three main characters are a mixed bag. Dr. Walter Bishop is a great character. FBI agent Olivia Dunham is dull. Peter Bishop livens the show with his witty observations.
