Well I'm going to give Eureka another chance, but I don't know for how long. It looks like they wrote the script very fast.

Last season of Eureka.

Kind of pisses me off that the Sheriff and Deputy are an item now. He worked so hard to get the other chick.

(Haven’t seen the show in so long, I have forgotten the characters’ names. - Did watch the season premiere though!)

Same here. My first impression is they’re “out-clevering” themselves.

Carter and Joe only got together in fake cyber world created by this seasons villain.

Did you watch the ending of premiere?

On Fringe, it looks like they rebooted the show into a Terminator type scenario.

Apparently not as you make it seem that something happened. :-)

Haven is a summer series. It should be back for the summer. I liked their Christmas special, which aired in December but took place in July but still had a Christmas theme to it so they can show it with regular episodes.

You are being extremely polite.

They moved a number of viewers from fans to ex-fans, or soon-to-be ex-fans if they can't get their acts together.

Usenet's RAST has much less tactful posters.

No kidding! It's as if they have three teams of writers. I hope they keep it fresh, unlike what happened to The X-Files.

I don't know what I think about that last Fringe episode. The ending, well, I just wanted more -- of what, I don't know. I felt like it was the Part 1 ending of a two-parter; except, there won't be a part 2. So, a mixture of feeling disappointed and frustrated.

This is season six, but it’s had a bunch of “half-seasons” that were nearly a year apart.

I just finished season 3 of Fringe on Blu-Ray. Unfortunately I don’t expect Season 4 to be out until September. :(

Hulu Plus has it, but only the last five episodes...

Not sure if I should buy the season in iTunes, or wait until the Blu-Rays come out.

Well actually, Dr. Beverly Barlowe has been the back story villain since the first episode.

Alcatraz looks like toast. They lost viewers and you had to follow it to keep up.

What's with Fringe? It looks like the next episode won't have anything to do with Friday night's episode! They're just going to leave us hanging! Bad Robot, indeed!

Oh Noes, really?

I enjoyed the last episode...so it’s going to be a hanging-flash forward? thud...

I just remember her from the point they changed the timeline. Didn’t want to confuse somebody that had not been watching for a few years.

She seemed like a relatively minor character in the past but it seems like this (Final)season she will be a major character.

I was one of 'em. The show is crap. And this is coming from a J.J. Abrams fanboy. I have absolutely loved everything he has done up to Alcacrap. I hope he isn't going the way of Stephen King...

Well it’s actually I Married a Monster from Outer Space. But you’re right, it’s very, very rarely on TV. By the way, there’s a new pic on this week’s Sci Fi thread.
