Life on the Fringe…

Okay… I don’t generally watch a lot of television… and I don’t generally seem to get in on the ground floor of some of the “cool new shows”… There have been some that I did try watching, and liked the concept behind, but they either didn’t catch on (commercially), or I got to the dance so late I had to get filled in before I could really get into.

So… Shows like 24, Lost, House, Grey’s Anatomy… Especially 24 and Lost – the ones that have an overall story-arc that each episode plays into and off of – I have had to my Netflix queue so I can play catch-up.

However, there is a new show that started last night… at least, I caught the “pilot” last night. MC and I both watched it, and were both actually interested in it. Fringe, on Fox. I will admit, I did skip out on a few portions, so I could do some other things around the house, but what I saw I did like. We got a feel of “X-Files” (a federal agent working to uncover an overarcing conspiracy), but with a tight timeline (working against an unspecified clock, sort of like what some ofthe seasons of 24 have used)…

I hope it succeeds… and does well enough that the entire season can run its course… before moving on to thenext season. If it does hold on and become one ofthe “it” shows, I can say I saw it in the beginning…

That I lived… on the Fringe…
(okay, corny, but I couldn’t resist…)
