In another move proving that, in spite of the recent/forthcoming endings of Big Love, LOST, and Friday Night Lights, TV is not doomed, FOX has renewed its cult hit Fringe for another season! Not only has it been given the green light, but FOX has ordered a full, 22-episode season for next year.
I haven't posted much about specific episodes of Fringe this season, but it's having a banner year, anchored in large part by Anna Torv's acting gymnastics (JJ Abrams discovered another great female lead with her!) and the lurking tragedy of the other universe. One of the best things about it is the way it's managed to move seamlessly between the two worlds, piling on top of the freak-of-the-week episodes a philosophical depth that wasn't quite developed in the show's first season and a half. It's gotten better and better. Well done, FOX!
By my count the only awesome shows still in jeopardy are NBC's Chuck and Parenthood. Fingers crossed.
