    Olivia (Anna Torv) is Rupert Murdoch's niece. Would you want to be the Fox guy that cancelled the boss's niece.

    Only 13 episodes? There was a time when 27 episodes per season was the norm.

    It's all to get it in syndication.

    Even longer, in some cases. The 1957 season of Perry Mason consisted of 39 1-hour episodes! :eek2:

    I'd love a longer season, but I'm happy Fringe is coming back at all and the move to Friday night didn't prove fatal.

    Good news, haven't seen any ep's this year since my local Fox has been fighting with Dish and not aired. Caught up on the previous 1.5 seasons or so at the end of last year and was really getting back into it.

    I'm very happy to read this earlier this evening. The show was prepared either way, with two endings, but now they get to go with the one that brings us into next season. Yay for us, and Fox ... you should still burn in Hell for canceling Firefly ... but thanks for sticking with Fringe.

    After having seen last week's stunning episode, I unreasonably hoped for this.

    I guess Fox can have my $1 a month. They sure as heck aren't going to get the money to keep "Fringe" on another year from advertising. That fantastic episode last week pulled a 1.0 in the demo. And while I realize that's live+same day, the April 6 episode got the same live rating but got a whopping 80% jump in live+7 DVR or a pathetic 7 day demo total of 1.8.

    Awesome to hear!! Thanks for the update! I really like Fringe and am glad for at least some more episodes even if it's not a "full" season. Maybe they will add more in the end.... well I can hope can't I!

    I have a friend that tends to be several seasons behind on shows. She told me to not give any spoilers for Lost a few years ago. I just had to then say "The plane crashes".

    I think I'm about 5 episodes behind. I like to watch Fringe on the projector and give it my full attention. Hard to find the time some weeks.

    You've got to be kidding me... FOX cancels Terra Nova but keeps this? Fringe has gone so far downhill that I stopped watching it about 8 episodes ago.

    :D To each their own... I think this season has been far better then a few other seasons. I never gave Terra Nova a try so I can speak for that but I always thought with how high cost production it was on that it would never last.

    You should watch last week's episode.;)

    In fact, if anyone has a bunch of recordings and are skeptics, watch last week's episode out of order. It doesn't matter if it's watched out of order. And if that episode doesn't intrigue you dump your recordings.

    Last Week's episode went in such an unexpected direction - I'd almost bet that we could post a lot of spoilers and they would either make no sense to you or you would think we're making them up!

    I was 7 episodes behind, and caught up within the past two weeks.

    Really great shows, explains alot about the past 4 seasons.

    It's all starting to fit together now, as I think back.
