Sci-fi junkies beware..Agent Dunham has smelled yet another fart..
I like a good sci-fi show...I like a bad sci-fi show. I like it when a sci-fi show knows whether it is good or bad. Bad sci-fi can be good when done right. Fringe has no clue. I keep watching and I keep waiting for it to suck me in. Agent Dunham, the female lead is kind of pretty when she doesn't have this serious 'oh my god that's the nastiest fart I ever smelled' face going on, which is like 90% of the time. Joshua Jackson's character is very nice (loved me the Pacey from Dawson's Creek) and he's turning out to be not such a bad actor. Walter is fun and I like the little father son dynamic most of the time, but sometimes it's just tooooo much. I like the crazy old Walter thing, but I don't know...a few times an episode I cringe at him. The creepy FBI boss dude, boring. The Pattern? Not seeing a pattern. 'Massive Dynamic'? How about 'Global Dynamics' from Eureka, a great good/bad sci-fi show. It also so seems like there is a new 'bad guy' every week, and then we never see or hear from them again. I mean I'm all for conspiracy theory and confusion (a la 'Lost') but again I'm failing to see the 'Pattern'. I want to be done with this show, but I just can't do it cause I'm a whore for sci-fi...when's it gonna get good?
