Sometimes, you report something because you can report it first, and not because it’s all that interesting. Such is the case here (cause it’s fun to beat the trades to the punch, even if they ultimately steal your punch, spike it a little, and then refuse to source it. Yeah. I’m talking to you, Variety. Bitches. Don’t think I’m gonna let that go, Michael Fleming. You’re on my list).

Oh yeah: “Fringe,” the Fox television show which is not like “The X-Files” at all, no sir, has just had it’s back nine picked up. Like, a few minutes ago. That means it has a full-season order, though I have to admit, I bailed halfway through the third episode when Joshua Jackson (RIP) started going all Pacino on us. Who knew Jackson had the level of over-acting in him? I know that J.J. Abrams is behind the show, but it really doesn’t show all that much. I do dig Anna Torv, though. She’s a tall drink of glass. Or something.

The good news here is that, for those of you who do follow the show, you don’t have to worry about a premature cancellation. They won’t do that until it gets its legs, midway through season two. And then they’ll jerk the rug right out from underneath you. That’s the Fox way, y’all.

You Heard it Here First: "Fringe" Picked up for a Full Season
