I caught a few minutes of  "Fringe" last night and it looked interesting.  Can anyone vouch for it?

To be perfectly honest I did not care for the pilot episode much.  Too, given the track record of it's network, I was reticent to invest time into the series.  But, as there's nothing else on, and I've caught a few episodes since, I have to say it grows on you.  I've seen it described as X-Files lite but it's seems closer to PSI Factor or The Burning Zone.

It's not great TV but it's better than 99.999% of the reality shows plagueing the airwaves.

I want to be Ripley when I grow up.

I like it.  Weirdness, paranoia and humour in good proportion.  Walter Bishop is my new favourite TV character!

I like it a lot more than the simialar themed 11th Hour.  The characters in Fringe are much more likable.  Though I don't really like how it seems EVERYTHING is connected to Walter and Massive Dynamic.  It's not like all scientist are employeed by one corporation.

At least, that's what Gary Busey told me...

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
