Are you enjoying the show "Fringe" as much as I am?
I'm finding it to be a wonderful show. Interesting and weird characters; an X-Files kind of layers of conspiracy and bizarre science; and just overall well written and well acted. And it's getting less odd in the dialogue - the first few episodes had some pretty cliche groan inducing lines, but those are becoming less and less.

I'm really enjoying it.

2. I saw the first episode and decided I didn't care for it.
But if you're recommending I give it another chance, I can certainly fish a few episodes off of Fancast and see what I think.

4. I tried watching it but just couldn't get into the story and
the lead actress just bugs the hell out of me.
She has only one expression on her face and that expression says "Who farted?".

Nope. Just not a good show. The X-Files blows it away.

9. Very much so, yes.
I particularly like the way they label the various locales with the large floating letters. I also appreciate the fact that the larger Massive Dynamic story arc doesn't overwhelm the "monster-of-the-week" element, like what eventually happened to the X-Files. I suppose I shouldn't speak so soon, though...

One thing that this show gets me thinking about, though...why does Fox keep giving roles that are clearly supposed to be Americans to non-American people? You've got the female lead in "Fringe," and the male lead in "House". Are there no good American actors and actresses any more? :)

10. Yes. I didn't mean to watch it, but I watch House and just didn't
turn the channel. I was pleasantly surprised. Now I am just waiting to see what is going to happen to the girl agent, being kidnappped and all.
