    Though the first and final season may not be fulfilling, (instead of the series finale) fringe was a riveting, completely consuming, i was completely hooked by season 2. With humor, action, acting, story lines and cinematography all exceptional, even though doctor who is my favorite show i believe fringe is the best.
  • Greatest Show Ever

    I have watched this on netflix three times and each time loved it. I especially liked the Fauxolivia and the parallel universe storyline. It was amazing such great actors and storyline. John Noble was so good in this show. Loved his antics and laughed so hard at his smoking marajuana with Jorge Garcia and his trips on LSD. So sad to see it end but what a happy ending. Thanks for a great show, I'll probably watch it again since nothing on TV compares to Fringe or probably ever will what with all the stupid reality, game, comedies, etc now on tv. Furthermore anytime a good show comes on it gets cancelled. I'll just stick to netflix and watch without dumb commercials and one in which has an ending not a cliffhanger.moreless
