Alternate Realities on 'Fringe', 'Lost' and 'FlashForward'

All my serialized sci-fi shows seem to have turned into one-hour drama versions of choose-your-own-adventure books. I’m still trying to figure out if this is a cop-out or a stroke of genius. Maybe it’s both.

Has 'Fringe' Lost Its Way?

The recent and depressingly bland episode "Johari Window" was another in a distressingly large number of dull episodes bookended by a few spectacular gems. Will Fringe ever fulfill its potential and become a consistently great show?
