When Fringe first came out, I was excited. I watched it ravenously for the first few seasons. What's even weirder about that is I never liked the X-Files.

 

Fringe excited me because of the sci-fi ideas it postulated. I also loved what I thought was the atheistic leanings of the brilliant Walter and maybe even the other main characters...

 

It was his admission that he actually did believe in God, and not just any God, but a personal, interventionist God who answers prayers, that disappointed me. Ever since then the show has deteriorated into almost a pathetic advertisement for the so-called "Noetic Sciences" that Dan Brown made (in)famous in his book "The Lost Symbol".

 

It has become very hard to suspend my disbelief watching the latest episodes. I kind of have to watch them, because my Dad still thinks it's one of the best shows on TV right now, but I find ways to get away from watching them sometimes...

 

Aside from a lot of pseudoscience and the lost chance at great atheistic characters on a popular American TV show, the story-line itself is, I think, unimaginative.

 

 

(WARNING! SPOILERS!)

 

 

Whichever universe Peter destroys is entirely dependent upon which Olivia he chooses to love? Really? Can they get more sad and cliche?

 

 

 

 

Anyways... what are your thoughts on where Fringe is going these days?

It's one of the two TV shows I watch, the other is CSI,and I watch them online.  It's just entertainment, when you no longer find it amusing, move on.  I don't think any TV sci-fi series hasn't ended up a disapointment.
