OK, finally watched it. I don't think it's as terrible as most people did. Unbelievable? Sure! But it's sci fi. I'm ok with disbelief. One thing was really awful though: that stupid blonde lead that looks like a combination of Poppy Montgomery and Blake Lively. She is a terrible actress, and was given all of the most ridiculous moments of the pilot. I think Fringe could have the potential for X-File-type supernatural goodness, but I sure hope Pacey can teach that woman a thing or two about not being completely insufferable on screen.
