This review is from: Fringe - The Complete Series [DVD]  (DVD)
For quite a long time, TV executives had been trying for a while to find a new X-Files, capturing the public's imagination and showing that the truth is out there. Fringe outdoes the X-Files - the truth is WAY out there, in alternate universes.
What starts out as a slightly mutated police procedural with added mad scientist, and "mystery-of-the-week"-style episodes. develops into a seriously convoluted story arc, with the plot flitting between the two main universes and their inhabitants (the same but different). More science fiction than the X-Files, but with plenty to satisfy horror fans; JJ Abrams is a very clever man; he knows what the public wants.
This is a series that rarely hits a bum note, and unlike Lost actually has a satisfactory conclusion,. Highly recommended.
