      The answer is pretty straightforward, and found in JJ’s apology for “Alias”. Read and enjoy…..

      Abrams and company took pains to tell the gathered critics that, while the story of FBI agent Olivia Dunham (Torv) investigates the operations of the Massive Dynamic corporation will have an overall arc, there will be a “mystery of the week” to keep people who’ve just tuned in for the first time interested.

      He realized that some of his previous shows (Alias, Lost) are a bit more complicated than that, which was brought home one day at Greg Grunberg’s house.

      “I watched a few minutes of Alias and I was so confused. It was impenetrable,” he said to critics, eliciting a huge laugh. “I should know this… Who the fuck is that guy?” He went on to talk about the complicated rep his shows have gotten, and how his new one will be a bit different. “Fringe is in many ways an experiment for us. It has an overall story and endgame, it absolutely does. (We want to see if) we can do a show that has that ulitimate story, but also a show that you don’t have to watch episodes one, two, and three to see episode 4.”

      So, there you have it. “Alias” was impenetrable (in JJ’s opinion), therefore, steps have been taken to ensure that when JJ and Grunberg are watching “Fringe” on DVD, they won’t get “Lost” (get it??? they won’t get “LOST”). Heaven forbid.

        I can see why; if it was more like LOST, then it probably would be confusing (dunno, haven’t seen them). Personally, I like stand-alones, as long as there’s character development or something of the sort.

        If you’re put off by serialized mythology shows, here’s a classic you would probably love. “Quincy, M.E.” Plenty of autopsies, but none of that nasty mythology to ruin things for the viewers. Hey, doesn’t that groovy lab look familiar? I’ll bet there’s a cow in there somewhere.

        And the real beauty of “Quincy, M.E.”? You can watch the episodes in any order you want, much like 75% of “Fringe” episodes (so far).

        Hey, why not order your DVD’s today? You’ll be glad you did….or whatever.

        Mythology = Good (Page 48)
        Standalone = Bad (Queenbee)

        It’s pretty obvious that this show is not going to be developed to its true potential.

        Roco et al. feel free to disagree with me, but I’ve heard or read nothing that tells me that there are going to be more than on mythology episode to every 5 or 6 standalones and that is not the proper ratio.

        The CSI meets the Twilight Zone of the week that they are force feeding us belongs on the SyFy channel at 1 am on Fridays.

        It’s a bunch of poop, and not the good kind.

        And for those of you (you know who you are) that don’t like us Pro-Mythology people posting, let me know what is happening on Murder She Wrote.

        Peace Beaches!

          Gosh, people, at least wait for the episode to start complaining!

          Why do you think we that don´t like the only-mithology-fans are only-standalone-fans? I´m not, I like mithology, love Alias. I just think you people should relax and enjoy the show, mithology will come, good moments will come. If you don´t like it, wait for the dvd and choose what to see.

          By the way, let me know how things are going on Heroes.

          Peace out

      They won’t listen because they don’t care. Plain and simple. As long as they get average ratings or a little better they don’t get two squirts about those of us that want more mythology.

      They’d rather dumb the show down so that the jack-arses of world can tune in when there is a rerun of Grey’s Anatomy.

    Pedro, it’s actually 1 mythology in every 4 episodes. While I agree the mythology to standalone should be alot less than this, that seems to be what we are getting. This season mythology episodes so far have been ep 1,4,8,10. Of the ones that have been filmed and not seen yet, eps 11 – 15, there has to be at least two. However, this could change in the later half of the season (16 -22), especially if there is no season 3 and the writers/producers know that.

      That is true.

      It is not just JJ and his team. It seems that Fox really pushing for a SyFy Quincy like show.

      In all fairness the lack of more mythology is not just a JJ and team problem, it’s on Fox’s shoulders.

      Fox couldn’t find their butts in a snow storm using both hands.
