    Ok...let me simplify it. Until this year (TV viewing season) I'd never heard the terminology "Friday Night Death Slot." In addition, you sited a wiki website. I don't give credibility to those sites because anyone can edit a wiki and post what they please.

    It's an article that's about a page long, with 21 citations. And has been common TV parlance for many, many years....
    "A society grows great when old men plant trees, the shade of which they know they will never sit in. Good people do things for other people. That's it, the end." -- Penelope Wilton in Ricky Gervais's After Life

    *bows down* excuse me if I have better things to do than keep up with "common TV parlance."

    The characters (Walter in particular, who is one of my favorite characters ever), the writing, the acting. Pretty much everything.

    No arguing with that.

    Well, turns out Fringe is on Amazon Prime...So it looks like I might check it out soon. The list of sci-fi shows is becoming more and more sparse since I started on my quest of watching a bunch.

    It starts quickly grabbing your interest.
    It advances into a series of curiosities that make you want to continue until it springs a theme that pretty much hooks you into looking forward to what and how it will progress and as it does it it throws curves that surprise you with a "Wow, didn't expect that"

    I am nearing the end of season 3 now and watch two episodes each night and look forward to my evening TV time (I watch no other programing but a couple hours via DVD each night)
