At the time Fringe started, we had spent 4+ yrs with BSG, were heavily involved in Lost winding up and I didn't want to get sucked into a new serial right away that *could* have been cancelled after its 1st season, like so many others.
After V & The Event, I'm ready! Sometime this quarter, I'll start Fringe season 1 on BD. I hope it doesn't get cancelled since I've read pretty good things about it for scifi fans.
Glad to read your endorsement for Fringe.
Alcatraz hasn't hooked us yet like Lost did out of the gate, but the acting is OK, it isn't bad per se and I can hang with it to see more of the mystery revealed.
After all my criticism of Terra Nova, I thought it was time to post some positive things about a network show
