Is "Fringe" the next "X-Files"?

October 21, 2008 1:28pm CST
Has anyone seen "Fringe", the new sci-fi tv series? It reminds me of "X-Files" but a lot darker and funnier. It certainly has become one of my favorite shows and an instant classic in my view.

Well I wouldn't say it's darker than the X Files but Fringe is funnier. I think it's a less intense sort of show and while the comparison in that the subject of their investigations is there I think that's where it stops because X Files was really all about Mulder and Scully and Mulder's search for his sister whereas Fringe just seems to be bobbing along without a real direction to it but I don't mind that, I'm enjoying it and the weird things they investigate and I really love Peter, I think Joshua Jackson is fantastic!!! I like that Olivia is still grieving over her partner, I think that's a gutsy move that the producers are taking as a lot of shows would have her happy and moving on and maybe flirting with Peter right now which would cheapen what she had with her partner so I'm glad she's getting over that and I hope in the future we DO get to see her flirt with Peter a little once she's a little bit past her grief. Everybody seems to love Walter because he's so nutty and out there and says funny things but I actually don't like him very much.

Fringe is pretty cool. Its like a more high-tech version of x-files. Whats not to like?

This started in Australia a few weeks back. I keep meaning to watch it and then something comes up. It sounds really good, and I loved the x-files. I will have to remember to at least tape it! Thanks for the positive reviews.

yeah, Fringe is great. it's been quite some time that there's been a show on tv that i can't wait until next week for another episode. Fringe is one of those shows.

From the first few episodes, its very similar - strange unexplained phenomena trying to find the truth which seems to be some conspiry theory

I wasn't to big on the x-files, but I really enjoy watching Fringe. Its become one of my favorite shows out there. It is funny and very entertaining.
