Since I never watched Fringe, how do you assess that Fox did right by that series? And yes, the question is designed to elicit information instead of vitriol; I really don’t know.
I do know that for the last few weeks Science Channel has been pushing the hell out of Fringe coming there, saying the show is to be “reborn” on Science; but I don’t see how, as I presume it’s out of production. Reruns != reborn. Yet another instance of function drift, similar to where the Sci-Fi Channel jumped the shark before it morphed into “Syfy” (where jumping sharks is now part of the job description: Pro wrasslin’ as science fiction!?).
But about the worst screw job I ever saw on a series was Star Trek: Enterprise. Not handled well at all by UPN; and had the worst ultimate episode ever. It played more like a bizarre ep of ST:TNG, a problem very well documented at the time.
