I think that Fringe was a somewhat of a "slow burn" but it's got a solid following, especially with DVR numbers and the fact it's on a Friday night. I'm looking forward to the final 13 episodes but hope it continues in some form, as Josh has hinted.

One of the main reasons why I think Revolution will fail is that Alcatraz was getting 6.7 million viewers on a Monday night not including DVR, yet was canceled. That leads me to believe that Fox didn't want to get into a "LOST" type situation and have a series with no true resolution.

The final few episodes were beginning to feel more and more like Lost, especially since they continually referenced "The Island".

Lindelof is a dickfoot.
