As someone who lived in Southern California, yet saw inconsistencies with L.A. locales being depicted in some cases terribly incorrectly on TV all the time...guess I either got used to such things, or simply love FRINGE enough to not really notice or care.
Hell...to this day, if I were asked picture the countryside of Korea, it would automatically conjure up images of the southern CA hills/mountains that doubled for that country in M*A*S*H.
FRINGE did lose a certain "epic-ness" in its location shooting when they permanently moved to Vancouver, esp when you look back @ S1 episodes shot in NYC. BUt the rest of its production values have, to me, been pretty consistent despite the budget constraints.
Of course, LOST had the added budget to attempt to make Honolulu look like several cities from around the world during its run - some turned out better than others.
