What is your opinion about fringe!? I think it is very smart and a modern XFiles!
Love the show
Never watched the x-files, so I can't make the comparison, but I must agree that this show is great. First of all its filmed in Vancouver, so being as I'm a Vancouverite and a fan, I'm constantly on the lookout for landmarks. I also lucked upon them filming an episode one day in downtown, couldn't stay long but it was a treat getting a peak behind the scenes. I find it interesting that for season 2 they are putting a lot of emphasis on every fourth episode, not sure how it will all pan out but hopefully they won't let the episodes in between suffer. Now, something I find distracting is the fact that I know the Observer appears in every episode. It draws my attention away from the story of the episode just to watch the background; I normally end up having to watching each episode twice; then again looking for landmarks is just as distracting.
Ya they seem to be doing only an episode that progresses the story every couple of episode. Needless to say, the in-between episodes are generally pretty interesting theories and futuristic scientific experiment which keeps me glued. Whenever Fringe take a break in between episodes, they throw down a huge episode. For example, this upcoming week will progress the overall story more than the past four episodes combined. Then a long break after...be prepared for a huge cliff hanger at the end of the next episode.
