Pacey Is My Constant

I'm not dead yet

Fringe. It seems you're either watching it completely amazed by how crazy good the current season is or you stopped watching long ago. The show has moved timeslots so many times I've lost track. I think it's on Friday nights now, though that doesn't matter, I watch it on Hulu as I do most TV. While I wait the obligatory 8 days for Fox to say its ok for me to see the show online I was thinking about if the show would have another season.

Low and behold back in April it was announced that Fringe would have a 5th and final season. I think 5 seasons for a show like this is mostly sufficient. As much as I enjoy Walter, Olivia, Astrid and Peter "Pacey" Bishop, I also know that if a show goes on too long the writers can get lost and the quality lags and the story wanders. Look at Battlestar Galatica, Lost, hell even the 3rd season on Fringe felt like they phoned it in more than a few times. At least they have time to plan out the final season, unlike other shows that came to an untimely demise such as Firefly and Farscape. I hope they're able to shed more light on the Observers, because I really don't know that much more about them now than I did during season 1. I guess what I mean is that I want detailed answers in the last season, and don't you dare "Lost" me by making up some arbitrary reason for everything that happened like a light in a pool with a stone drain plug. I'm looking at you Lindelof.

I always feel like, somebody's watching me
