He's Not Dead
Ahhhh...... Hmmmmmmmmm...... Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Yep, I must agree, the BSG finale did indeed contribute its ample amount of suckage. The problem with that show was that it aimed too high. I didn't have a problem with them splicing in God or Fate into the mix, but the whole niche of the show was in drawing comparisons between God, Fate, and technology. It was doing fine with that (like how the cylon hybrids used fate to drive their ships and had some connection with their cylon god and such) But the show started asking questions that it couldn't give anywhere close to a relevant answer to them. Some people (myself) watched the show to the end just to see what commentary the writers would make on those subject matters. And I really believed that they'd shed some new insite on the subjects. I wasn't looking for answers but just, I dunno, a genius insite to the whole question of God and Fate, the future, technology, and etc. But the show fell flat. In the finale none of the bigger plot questions were wrapped up. And as for those other subjects like God and stuff, the show basically said Hey We Have No Freakin Idea Either. Actually it was sort of the same feeling I came away with after watching the Matrix trilogy as well. So the lesson here? It's alright to make leaps and bounds in terms of the exploration of certain subject matters, but SOME subjects are just too far out for the human intelect to touch. But I think Fringe had been doing a good job of balancing between practical story telling and that immature exploration that some other shows have attempted. I guess in the end, ironically, I have "faith" that Fringe can pull off the hat trick by the end!
As long as Fringe stays away from Starbuck territory, we might be okay. If Bell ends up being the cylon god and we find out that HE'S HAD A PLAN since the beginning, we might not. lol

That would be the only Fringe finale I'd deem unforgiveable.

Welp, they've got what, 12 or more episodes left? Eh, I dunno. Supposedly things are picking up when episode 8 airs finally. But right now stuff is in too much of a limbo for me to make any predictions. But my gut tells me they won't pull a Starbuck. Seriously that was aweful on BSG. I mean talk about hyping the crap out of something!
