The sci-fi show that stole my heart is now 4 years old and I have to say it's probably my favourite show of all time. The characters are amazing and I'm in love with Anna Torv. This show has episodes like "White Tulip", "Ability", "Over There Pt. 1-2" and "Entrada" that makes me ask why shows like this are not popular and have low ratings. The show started weak but it really finds a personality in the middle of season 2 and then comes what I think is the best season a network show has ever created... Season 3. If you like complex shows like "Lost" or "The X-Files", watch the pilot right now.
No matter how some people may feel about it. It's intrinsic play on detail is phenomenal. I cannot lie. I'm from England and just don't get the luxury of ("as it comes on I'm viewing") But you know what? I download it cause I can't wait. I love it too much. It's my TV highlight for the end of the week. If the ratings are low, then I'd be inclined to say that many by way of the internet are doing the same as me. Such is the way with such great meaningful shows. I have every single episode to date.
Keep Fringe on TV! Not enough Neilson viewers I guess but they are making a mistake if they don't watch this show..Once this show leaves the air and Law and Order SVU then TV will be taken over by reality! Not cool.
Side Note: why they keep cancelling Bryan Fuller and possibly cancelling J. J Abrams shows. They should have there own network.
When Fringe premiered 3 years ago, it was great and its continues to be the best thing on TV. The stories are intriguing and every episode grabs your attention and doesn't let go until the very end. I think everyone should watch it.
I understand that a show like Frinke does not have it easy on today's TV-screen. It is not easy to follow if you are not a regular audience member... a fan. Still, it has so much more intelligence, so much more storyline than those horrible CSI clones. The cast is amazing and need I say anything about Anna Torv? Well, I might.
She is just what God had in mind when he thought: Well, hey, let's create a tallented, beautiful woman.
Yes, I know, it sounds like I am fifteen. Well, I am not. But still.
Anyway, I am still in great hope that this amazing show will come back for a fifth and probably final season.
As most of you will be aware, apparently Fringe is in danger of not being picked up for a Season 5. Now there has been a massive ongoing Twitter/Get Glue/Tumblr appeal that is actually getting the attention of people at Fox already.
Fringe is currently on a 4 week hiatus now in the US but seeing as we're 4 weeks behind, we'd like to keep that appeal for Fringe still active. If you're on Twitter, please RT this message -
Follow @JustLiv @KatherineJoycey @_cisco for more info on what to post and when [Will be an hour before Fringe next episode is to air. Basically we're after a set Fringe to trend in the UK in the hope to show the powers who be, that there is still a demand for it.

I'm on the final few episodes of season 3 and won't be buying season 4. What was so great about Fringe is that it centred around a confident, intuitive, clever, mysterious, likeable action-heroine 'Olivia'... Then somewhere along the way (I don't know, maybe the show got too popular & they thought "oo well we better make a man the centre of attention like most shows on tv...." and Peter became the centre of attention... Suddenly he's the smart, action-hero, working everything out and saving the day and Olivia's just this silent, dumb-question-asking side kick... And Olivia is such a strong, amazing actress - I can't believe what they've done.. It happened on & off in series 2 but they made up for it towards the end... but season 3, honestly how could you go so so very very wrong????
If you love Fringe and want to see it renewed for a well deserved 5th Season, please read this:
We have created a Facebook Page dedicated exclusively to Fringe being renewed for a 5th Season. We need all Fringies from across The Globe to unite by 'liking' the page so that we can draw some seriously needed attention to this amazing show and ensure that we get HEARD! That We:THE FANS don't want this genius 4th Season to be the shows last! Fringe is a Television Masterpiece in a league of it's own and there won't be another show like it. Unfortunately as you all are probably aware, Fringe has now come to a point where The Fox Network is not satisfied with the shows ratings (in the USA-as they are the ratings that count) and the much dreaded word: >Cancellation
I initially thought like pablosplinter, but now I think they've been very clever. How many shows ever get the opportunity to re-analyse character's relationships? And remember, if everything is right in the Fringe world, the Peter doesn't exist.
However...... my question would be the timing. The show had only recently got Olivia and Peter together, and I can imagine some people may have liked that resolution. However, this is a show where Peter has always been an outsider, and from series 2 we've had multiple universes and time-lines.
So in a way, these things should be explored. I think the last episode of series 4 was brilliant. Having recently re-watch series 1 on DVD, I can see the show is defintely better now. It was always great, but it has got better.
Will series 4 be as good as series 3? I think it can be. More than that, I think what series 4 is setting up could make for a much better series 5 (had Olivia and Peter been together for the whole of series 4, it might not have led so well into series 5).
What surprises me is that, even with everything that has happened, I think their is still the possibilty of so much more. Series 4 has already got me thinking about series 5.... and I don't normally do that.
I really enjoy this show and would be very disappointed if it was cancelled. The characters work well together, and I love Walter's humour as he portrays a modern day mad scientist. With all the technological advances in the ways we can view the shows, it must hurt some of the series network viewings.
I just started watching the show and got up to date with the current episodes. I rated this show based on the season 1-3, really unsure about season 4 it's a little bit early. I love the characters Peter, Olivia, Walter, Astrid and than there's Broyles which is great at time when he does pay a visit or enters the scene once in awhile. It can do some character development, but seeing how this show is a fast pace to different times many different versions of people that seems hard to do at times. They mostly write great episode stories even though sometimes they write boring or not to good shows, no show is perfect. This show has great entertainment and scifi with great science, that will make you think. This series is well worth the watch especially if you miss some of JJ Abrams work when he did Lost.
Hey, I head that this show was about to be cancelled. What the hell? Speculations are that this show is expensive to make, well aren't they all? Come on people, use your brains and don't cancel the coolest show since the X-Files! Rethink this. The actors all have such good chemistry, they are smooth together and this show so works! DO NOT CANCEL IT PLEASE!!!
Fringe has really developed since its first season, with fascinatingly interesting characters, stellar mythology, incredible acting, not to mention a parallel universe. ITS THE GREATEST THING TO HAPPEN TO TV IN A LONG TIME! Fringe moved beyond the "monster of the week" and similarly mediocre X-Files-like stories into a dramatically engaging, beautifully convoluted, and extremely elegant show. This is the epitome of science fiction.
Also, if Fox cancels Fringe like it did Firefly, I will be really, really mad. And even more sad.
Since I boycott FOX I hadn't seen the show previously, but when it came out on DVD I was curious enough to view it.
It's like someone decided to copy X-Files but did it badly. Like they didn't get what made the show interesting.
I think one of the things that most annoys me is that they're making up fake science and claiming things can be done that can't. It's a small distinction, I grant you but it does make a difference to me.
In X-Files, they took paranormal situations and examined them with real science - so the only silly part was whether you could believe that Aliens existed and all these crazy things might happen.
Fantastic, fantastic show. Definitely my favourite on television. Great characters, great storylines, great acting..it's a beautiful show. It got me hooked from the very first time I started watching. I really, really, REALLY hope it doesn't get cancelled. IT CAN'T! It's one of the best shows on tv! It's so unfair when exemplary shows like this one are at a disadvantage because of the ratings.
Fringe is one of my most favourite shows, but it hasn't been so much fun watching this season as the previous ones. I hope that this show doesn't get cancelled and in order to keep it going I hope the writers solve this kind of new universe-stuff real quick and make Peter part of the continuing storyline again instead of letting him be some kind of bystander. Watching the fringe team solve mysteries without Peter is just not so much fun, like Bones without Booth or House without House. Please writers: make Peter a part of it again, get the fun (and the love) back.
..perfect acting , perfect cast , perfect story line , perfect in all ways it remind me of lost., because of fringe i'm seriously thinks of parallel universe and if it is i'm sure their fringe would go for tenth season.. Not "may be" "may be not" season five like here
Fringe is a fantastic show. It's pretty graphic, but, has a point to all the violence. It's smart, and it's brilliant. The character development of each character is brilliant, and it's amazing actors make the heroes super likable and the bad guys super unlikeable. In the end, I think everyone should watch this show.
