    I love it. A bit weak but if you watch it religiously it doesn't quite matter (kind of like Alias - kind of). I still think the first episode was the best, but it is slowly starting to strengthen.

    i watch it too but it seems like a ripoff of x-files with the use of our technology now than what we had back 10 years ago. The actress playing the main character, her acting is just bad/odd and so is joshua jackson's. Still watch it though, hopes that it will get better.

    I don't know where people get that comparison to x-files. Yes there are standalone episodes, and yes it is set in a paranormal universe, but it is much different in every other aspect.

    It's similar in theme i admit and it is different in that x-files is basically government cover ups and aliens and is basically more realistic compared to fringe. Which is basically about one man/scientist's experiments haunting him in the future.

    i never liked the x-files but fringe is really good imo some good episodes so far hopefully they start to build on it quite a bit.

    In all honesty how they decided to start the whole series, that being the father of joshua jackson's character being the father of these things or at least having some part in it seems a bit lazy and badly thought out. It can't change what has already begun, still has potential though.

    I watched the first 3 episodes. I've been waiting for this kind of show. X-Files was good, but it had to end sometime. Now this is the new X-Files.

    yea we've got the series set to record
    been watching the entire thing
    it's a fantastic show, i don't see much wrong with the acting, more what i hate
    is some of the dialogue or the disbelief of the crazy old man
    he's always right, and yet his son never believes what he is saying...
    after all that has happened he still doesn't believe
    which i really find to be annoying

    another show called the 11th hour came out, not the "same"
    it's not really paranormal, it's all -------realistic science stuff, but
    it's completely terrible, a stupid show with bad acting, and a lame ass story line
    that is total bs lol

    Fringe rocks my socks.

    I only watch some major series, and otherwise i tend to stay away from tv
