I like Fringe, and I’m built to automatically get sucked into conspiracy shows and sci-fi mythology, but for some reason this one hasn’t really grabbed me. X-Files and Lost were like crack for me, and anything that wasn’t talking about the overall mythology always drove me batty. Somehow Fringe’s main mystery has missed that addictive part of my brain that absolutely must know the answers.
Still enjoy the show and still love Walter’s character, I’m eagerly awaiting the final season, but I’m not waiting with baited breath for some crescendo and perfect bow on it at the end. It should be informative that as I watched the final episodes of season 4, off my DVR about a 2 weeks behind schedule, I was under the impression that that was the series finale and I was pretty satisfied with the last episode even if it was a bit ridiculous and open ended.
