Is anyone watching Fringe?

I think this show has some serious potential.

Thoughts?

EDIT:

I just did a little search online and realized that I missed the first two episodes... Interesting, since the first episode I watched seemed to be the beginning to me... I felt in the dark on a couple of lines, but I thought it was intentional.

It's a wacky, but enjoyable show. How they can bill it as a drama is beyond me. The old guy has the best lines, my favorite so far; "Do you have any cocaine?"
I don't expect it to last to long.

I watched the first 2 episodes and then it came to me! If I wanted to watch The X-Files Id switch over to the Sci-Fi Channel

I think the off-center Dr/dad is great...just crazy enough...but I'm wondering if the formula will get old quick...we discovered this, Doc what is it, can you fix it, thanks.

Last nights though throw out a few things to keep you wondering, well what was this really and what does this have to do with that..kind of more on line with the way Heroes keeps you on the hook.

Speaking of Heroes, I have never watched it, but over the summer, have seen some things in the promos that got me interested in watching it.

However, I am always hesitant to pick up a series in mid-stride. I know they are written so that you can jump in, it would be silly otherwise, as you would have a diminishing audience. But is Heroes worth the time?

To be honest, from what I am seeing, it almost looks like it used to be good, and now might be getting too bizarre... or am I reading too much into the promos.

Your correct! It used to be great! but now it sucks "Save the cheerleader, save then world!" when they "saved the cheerleader" it seems like it should have eneded, but NOOOOOOOOOOO, they try to stretch it out and it ends up in a pile of crap like all the rest kinda like "LOST!"

Kinda of agree, there are certain characters in Heroes I don't give a crap about their story line but there are a couple others that I find interesting. But I'm not killing my self to watch every episode, unlike my wife and daughter and their Thursday night Supernatural...they're worse then me and the Sunday football game

It's nice to watch a show every now and then where one has no idea what's going on... and cannot even predict what's going to happen after 5 minutes. Aside from that, my son and I spent most of the hour wondering if Fringe was going to meet up with the Prison Break guys anytime this season.........

Yes but I didn't see last night's yet.

Basic summary I give people is more anatomically explicit X-Files, but there is more formula to Fringe, w/ Walter recalling expts he did 20 yrs ago and how they apply to the case at hand. I guess there is The Puzzle, kinda like there was the cigarette-smoking man.

But I do like it.

I like the location signs.

Yeah, I like the fringe.

Also agree with others that Heros jumped the shark.

Yeah, I think those are an interesting touch. Much more visually appealing than simple text on the bottom of the screen.

OK... I'll not waste my time. I'll see about renting the first season some time, or wait for a marathon and watch until the cheerleader gets saved.

Heros is nothing but a drama that teases you along with the promise of action and a little bit of suspense but never delivers.
