First three seasons were great, but season four started to get confusing.

With each Fringe season, the storytelling and acting only get better, more fascinating, and more unique. John Noble embeds mad scientist Walter with a deep sense of pain and struggle, not only due to his professional life, but his personal life as well. Joshua Jackson is effortless as Peter, a man trying to straddle a life strongly tied to two separate universes, and Anna Torv plays about a million Olivias, and I notice the infinitesimal differences.

There are systematic shows, and there are innovative shows, and Fringe is the latter, pushing viewers to think outside the box, while always showing them a good time.

The last two seasons get really wonky, but it kept me intrigued enough to stay committed all of the way through.

This was a good show, but it was very inconsistent. Some episodes were great, some were AMAZING! but unfortunately about half were mediocre/watch out of habit episodes. Notice that they made it to 100 episodes so that they can be syndicated and then hard stopped at 100. Towards the end they were just dragging out the story line to make it to that magic 100 for syndication. As a bit of a nit-pick, I found Anna Torv to be the weakest link. She showever very little emotion on her face other than scared or skeptical while the other actors were able to portray other emotions like happiness, sadness, curiosity, sex appeal, shock, etc., she just had the two looks.

One of the best shows ever. Worth re-watching the complete series yearly. I thought it was going to be the Doctor Who for the U.S., but sadly cancelled after 5 seasons. I hope that every generation gets a spin off of this wonderful show.

Such a great show. The dystopian future-present-past warp of time and energy left me breathless. I absolutely love the characters and the actors/actresses do them total justice. The show does end, which is a super disappointment not because of the ending but just the fact that it ends. I wish the show could continue for life (or at least another season!).

Absolutly amazing! Science, police work, character development are all taken care of properly. It begins as a case of the week show, but graduatly moves to bigger story arcs eventough the seperate episodes mostly keep their own arcs as well. Although there are times I felt like I needed to take notes to keep track of the very compilicated plot, the details are amazingly thought of and worked out well. It is an amazing show to watch, with a good ending.
