    Damn, I hate the short commercial break ploy that they use on the show. I'm a smoker and a beer junkie. I need to smoke and pee a lot and the 60-90 second commercial breaks don't allow for this.

    Other than that, it more than fills the gap in my life that was created when The X Files was canceled. It's by far the best show on television today. If you haven't watched it yet, give it a chance and check it out next week.

    Agent Olivia Dunham and Peter Bishop are much better characters than Agent Fox Mulder and Agent Dana Scully ever hoped to be. Also, the storyline is more science drive, so it's more believable.

    It's on Fox. I could have sworn that I said that in the previous post.

    It comes on at 9 PM here in Cali. I don't know how that works out in your neck of the woods. It came on at 10 PM up in Alaska, but at 7 PM in Nevada and 9 PM in Wyoming.

    We've been watching it since it started, but I am still not impressed. The stories are not very interesting (with a couple exceptions) The characters are forgettable and have no chemistry (except the doc). I agree it's trying to fill the void of the Xfiles (of which I was a zealot), but it's just not cutting it. With the exception of reality TV and CSI, it's among the worst series out there unless you're looking for a cure for insomnia.

    Damn bro, you just lost a lot of respect from me. Fringe owns X-files.

    I have been watching it. I was never a big X-files guy, but a couple of episodes I saw on syndication were cool.

    The Doctor character makes the Fringe show, everything else is kind of, eh. Although some of the crazy crap they come up with to lead to solving the situation of the moment is kind of intriguing...

    It takes up space on the DVR since I don't have many new The Unit. Dexter, Sons of Anarchy and a couple of others I can't think of at the moment aren't back on yet.

    Oh, Burn Notice - Love that show.... but it's not on until Jan 19th or something....

    I love Fringe and I do agree that the Doc makes the show. I mean, how many shows talk about a gas released on a subway that can turn into a solid and coccoon eveybody on board? Thats wild s**t. And Burn Notice Rocks! They just had a Burn Notice marathon on yesterday. And I spent two days watching all the House reruns. I never was interested in House till then. Now I'm hooked!.
