I find myself in a strange situation. One of my favorite shows on television is a show I gave up on halfway through the first season. Fringe.
I gave up on the show halfway through the first season because I felt the show was meandering, strange, and sometimes gross. It is still sometimes those things, but it is so much more too.
I gave up on Fringe, now in its third season, before the overall “meta narrative” became evident. Fair warning, spoilers ahead.
