J.J. Abrams Promises ‘Fringe’ Will Die Fighting

An anonymous reader writes “Fringe creator J.J. Abrams has said of the show’s much-maligned move to Friday nights, ‘Fringe deserves to live beyond season 3. If we’re going to fail, let’s go down doing the most bad ***, weirdest, interesting, sophisticated version of a series that we could possibly do.’ Previous announcements about the move were more defensive, claiming that Fringe’s shift to Fridays was an attempt to draw younger viewers back to the ‘dead zone’ of Friday nights. But season three has been confused enough in tone and approach that it’s no surprise to hear yet another contradictory statement about its future…” Good episodes of Fringe have been great TV. I’ve really enjoyed the first half of the season and am looking forward to seeing what they do with it. A lot of mediocre SciFi has been shut down recently (Caprica? SGU?) and a lot of bad SciFi continues (V?) but Fringe flirts with greatness with regularity. I hope it makes it… even though on Friday it’s not likely.
