Dear ladies and gents,
there is good news and bad(ish) news.
Good news is that Fringe has been renewed for fifth season. The bad news (or maybe not really bad news after all) is it will be the final season with 13 episodes only.
Now before you accuse me of being a demented lunatic for thinking it is a good thing it is the last season or that there are only 13 episodes – can we talk Lost? Or the X Files for that matter? Lost got a bit well… lost along the way. But once there was a set number of episodes until the end, it got good. Really (REALLY!) good. And it took me days to digest the finale.
X Files on the other hand, well it was great when it first started. But then it started to drag on and on and on. Were nine seasons really necessary? I don’t think so.
And now we have Fringe. I freaking love Fringe. I do. How can you not? It’s clever and complicated and good and makes you think. And it’s funny. Come on, it’s the same show that gave us the word vagenda.
But I’d rather if it went out with a bang than a whimper. You know what I mean?
So tell me dear ladies and gents, what do you think of Fringe being renewed for one last season?
