Comic-Con 2008 kicked off their "preview night" on Wednesday, with the first official public preview of the FRINGE pilot. The screening was introduced by a pre-taped J.J. Abrams. He congratulated the crowd on seeing the "first not illegal, unleaked, evil internet screening". The pilot clocked in at 81 minutes and 30 seconds, to which Abrams joked "may be 30 seconds too long". After the screening, cards were handed out to remind people to attend the FRINGE session on Saturday to get their first scavenger hunt clue. Thanks to PostLarval at Unfiction for the photo!
