I think its an awesome show. I have watched every episode bar number 5 (It's only just started in the UK and only on episode 2).
What alot of you seem to be missing is the underlying story:
It's not a show about random events like the X-Files largely was, it is a sequence of events that are all related in some kind of Uber-conspiracy.
Massive Dynamic are involved somehow, but are they in on the "good guys" side or the others?
I highly recomend reading the Fringepedia
. It goes into the random bits and bobs you
don't pick up watching the show the first time round.
For example, in the Pilot episode, on the Kayak in the wierd vision thing, there is 1 red circle and 3 green ones. The same sequence appears in the
view through the Observers binoculars. They also appear on the man's hat who is trying to recover the beacon.
What do they mean?
You have to keep your eyes peeled and watch out for clues. Then you have to watch the episode again.
It's no good watching one episode once and making up your mind, once you realise how deep they have made this (there is an extensive viral internet
thing going on as well with puzzles and clues) you will want more and long for answers.
I watched the first one, then watched the second and after that I was hooked and have watched the first and second one again! You see and notice
things the second time round which give you a fuller picture.
This show is going to be something huge.
EDIT: I am currently poised to watch episode 5 online tonight at work, so no spoilers please if you can help it!
