I will admit that I had serious misgivings about this show. I was worried it was just going to be a modern X-Files. I was alternatively worried it would just be Alias or Lost intrigue in a different setting.
Well...I was kind of right, I think. A few more episodes will show if Fringe is going to be more episodal or more serial.
But in any case, the performances and writing are so incredibly superb that even if the plot twists do continue to be slightly predictable, I'd watch it anyway. J.J. Abrams has a genius and I am very excited to see how this show progresses.
