So I thought I would post here before steaming ahead to see if there is still interest in continuing with the Fringe re-watch, which has stalled at the end of Season 2. the man of twists and turns did the bulk of posting for S1 & S2, and I can totally understand wanting to pass that baton on to other(s). But it seemed like there might be some declining interest as well, though hard to tell because holidays (which was my excuse, plus being overseas). All of which is to say, shall we power on? Continue with twice a week or move to a different posting schedule? Can't remember if it was related to Fringe showing on TV somewhere because I was watching it on DVD anyway. I'm happy to take a turn at the posting, shared or otherwise.
