|my problem with "Fringe"
||[Dec. 2nd, 2008|10:44 am]
We watched two episodes yesterday and it's moving into "one or two dumb moments and it's gone" territory. Here's why (may contains spoilers up until two weeks ago's episode):
I was hoping it would be more of a serial show, like Lost or BSG. But, it's not. It seems like (and I only watched two episodes yesterday so this may be biased by those) every episode ends with something kinda surprising! And then nothing really happens with that in the future, with the exception of the pilot.
The main stories are generally OK, but they seem to be falling into a pattern of artifically setting up the need to do something crazy, like "this guy won't tell us how to save this FBI agent unless we get to ask this other guy a question. Oh, but we just killed him so now you have to get the answer while he's dead." None of this really has to do with why the FBI agent is dying!
Anyone else watching? What do y'all think?
