Poll question: Fringe: Yea or Nay?
What say you, Lounge?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. Nay
Interesting at first, but I can only take so much of the crazy doctor suggesting some batshit crazy thing that is, "Highly theoretical"

2. Even I could develop a better logo than that dilettante Adobe Illustrator render...
Not sure about that milk, glue, or whatever that substance is...

3. It's not a logo exactly, but one in a series of glyphs that appear throughout the show:


There's a lot of stuff to find if you look closely at some of them.

And I believe the one with the face is smoke.

6. Mucho thanks!!
The letters are still amateurish, but the the rest look rather good.

I see what you mean about the face, but the frog looks better. :)

Of course, if the show is more about killing lots of people, I won't bother. It looks like it might have some intellectual depth, but then I have to pinch myself and remember this is the early 21st century. Intelligence is evil.

7. It's a bit of both.
Quite a few people are killed from week to week, I'm afraid, but there are a lot of ridiculously amazing scientific ideas. From the moment I first saw it, the show reminded me of The X-Files - except that The X-Files was based in the paranormal, and Fringe is based in the scientific.

It's a very deep, complex narrative, and I'm absolutely hooked! :hi:

8. I voted "whosajiggawhat?"
'Cause I just gotta go with the South Park references when I can. Plus, until today at work I'd never even heard of this show, and now that I know it's Abrams I won't touch it with a ten foot pole.

9. It's pretty good despite the consistently lackluster performance of Anna Torv. n/t

10. Fourth option: Maybe
I watched all of season one and while I still think the show is disjointed and frustrating, I love the relationship and characters portrayed by Joshua Jackson, John Noble and Jasika Nicole. I want to love the character played by Blair Brown because I love her but so far, that part has been unsatisfying. I don't hate the actress that plays Olivia but I despise the ways she's written. And if I hear the word "pattern" one more time, I'm going to hit someone.

11. I think I like the show more than Fox does
They wouldn't have moved it to Thursday if they wanted the show to survive. (going up against both The Office and Grey's Anatomy)
