I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Fringe is a miserable effort that I can’t imagine beginning to appeal to anyone. It sort of plays like an awful 80’s low-budget series that would have run for just a few episodes and whose real starring moment would have been being remembered fondly by nostalgic 20-somethings in a bar decades later and then quickly discarded. Except this one doesn’t quite have the charm of being low-budget or being from the 80’s. But it’s got awful. It’s got that in spades.Wow. He sounds angry. And it only gets better. From the looks of it though, he got his hands on the same script as The Other Girl, and she loved it. Go figure.
Let’s put aside the story for a second and let me just say that I have NEVER seen a script so riddled with spelling and punctuation problems. There are misspelled words every other page and every single adjective is preceded by the word ‘fucking’. Characters aren’t serious. They’re ‘fucking serious’ in ‘fucking laboratories’ with ‘fucking melting’ faces. Really.
This script fucking sucks.
