45min is and I'm very impressed so far. Good story line and lots of action, so far it looks like its going to live up to the hype. Good to see a lot of familiar actors in it as well.

for another local production! Surprised it took this long for Fox to air the series, the pilot was shot when we were shooting Mi4, JJ Abrams came in to supervise both.

I liking it so far, I was on location visiting the other day and from what I can tell it's going in a great direction. Those of you that watch Fringe will notice a lot of similarities, both have a similar feel, local, JJ Abrams projects, casting also handled by the same people so you'll notice some of the same faces appearing in bit roles in both series.

Another thing I just realized being similar to Fringe, both have female blonde cop/agent partnered with a civilian, both have a ethnic dark young female assistant working in a lab with an old white guy

Both also produced by Warner Bros TV, but sold to Fox to air instead of their own Network CW lol.

Thought it was pretty meh. Maybe when more of 'why/how' comes out it'll be a little more interesting. But for now its lackluster investigation skills and forgetful villains will be watched without high hopes.

Network is happy with last nights ratings, did a strong 3.3/8 share. Beat out Terra Nova, it's believed the network will be looking at that as a comparison to decide which show to renew.

watching sam neill now and terra nova late last year totally makes me want to see them produce another jurassic park movie lol

i like where this show's going...it took me a while to get into fringe but this hooked me in right from the start just like lost

good to know it's filmed locally too...i'm guessing they are using tons of green screen.

It's not looking good at all, I know Fox isn't making any profit from selling ad space due to the low ratings and the sizable budget for production. Fringe has good DVR+7 ratings but most advertisers could care less, as people who record their favorite shows on DVRs would fast forward/skip the commercials anyways.

The one tiny hope for Fringe is that it is not a Fox produced production. It's done by Warner Bros., so there has been some speculation WB might be looking to shop Fringe to another network if Fox decides against renewal.
