I love this show and it's ending next week with a 2 hour season finale.

I used to be an avid watcher.  But it got really crazy a few seasons back.  I plan on catching up though when I have time.

I have never missed one episode.  I'm going to buy the entire series when I can because I could watch this like I do my old Twilight zones.  I have all of those on disc too.

Some of the Fringe episodes need to view twice just to figure out what is going on.

They're saying that Fringe just didn't have the viewer ratings, which I found surprising, but I guess everyone's into those silly reality shows today that I can't stand.  I've always been a sci-fi/fantasy fan myself. 

I love Walters character in Fringe...he cracks me up.  I just thought it was so well done and the actors were great.  So sad to see this one get the boot.

We used to be avid watchers until they started that alternate reality season.  We lost interest shortly after.

Yeah, that is where they lost me.  As I said, I will still probably go back and download the past seasons and watch them when I get time.

Well...that's it...that was the final 2 hour Fringe...*sniff*. 

I hated that Walter and Peter were separated at the end...didn't like that ending at all.  Sort of leaves one thinking there might be a sequel to it.  Maybe that's just wishful thinking too on my part. 

Good-bye Fringe...another good one bites the dust and some lame reality show will take it's place...sigh...

Oops I missed it :(

But I caught CSI and I'm glad. There was a transplant story. A tearjerker for sure!

It is free if you subscribe to Amazon Prime. I have been watching the old episodes so I can understand some the references made in later episodes. Also, I am trying to spot the observers.

I heard that there is an observer in every episode. I rarely see them when I watch the first time; but if/when I catch it a 2nd time I usually spot them.

BTW...they started showing Fringe episodes on the Science channel (284 on DirecTV).

I really enjoyed the first season but lost interest after that.  I'm not a big TV watcher.

Here's IMDBs summary from the first season: "A television drama centered around a female FBI agent who is forced to work with an institutionalized scientist in order to rationalize a brewing storm of unexplained phenomena."

I only watched the first season.  After that, it just got silly.
