Yeah it definitely starts out vibing like 'The X-Files' but (and it's hard to say too much because I've seen up to season three now) while it does then go into having parallel realities it does it in a really nice way.

And I think that so far it's kept a tighter leash on it's own mythology (so far, I mean, I've heard some grumbles about season 4 online but I've been avoiding too many S4 spoilers) than 'The X-Files' managed to.

There's stuff in season 3 that pays off little things done in season 1 that seemed insignificant at the time but which make sense still within that mythology. Like seeds planted that finally all come to fruition in season 3.

It's also real crazy at times - 'X-Files' had it's far out eps, but 'Fringe' pushes it even farther a lot of the time. But mostly gets away with it.

I find it a lot of fun. Not too serious but one of those shows that's silly technically but interesting enough thematically and in terms of the relationships between the characters.

I'm definitely going to have to start watching it. Sounds like good fun

The character of Walter is a hoot, while also being the sort of tragic character of the lot. And I like Anna Torv.

For some reason there seems to be a high number of Australian actors. It's like one of your chief exports

One of the really good things is that thanks to advances in TV visual effects they can really do a good job of differentiating the two universes. It's a show with top notch production values and photography.

All I'm gonna say is, I LOVE it every time I see the airships! Like it's so ridiculous how cool I find seeing them. Think of what the Empire State Building was built to do at the top, but which never ended up happening in 'our' universe!

But I'll start to say too much so I better stop!

I'm pretty sure I saw in a commercial for the show the World Trade Center in the NY skyline. I suppose 9/11 did not happen in whatever universe that was.

It did (or a variation of it), but in the alternate the WTC survived and another site was attacked instead.
